On Sunday — 17 years after the phone was first introduced — Nokia announced it would be reintroducing the 3310.

You asked for it… we brought it back. The Nokia 3310 is reborn. #MWC17

The reimagined phone comes with the classic game Snake, and is said to have a standby battery life of a month. It also has a 2-megapixel camera, a microSD slot, and a color screen. It comes in four colors — red, yellow, blue, and gray — and is expected to cost around $52 when it becomes available sometime in the second quarter of the year.

"The love for the brand is immense. It gets a lot of affection from millions and millions of people," said Nokia Chief Executive Rajeev Suri in a press conference on Sunday.
