Nokia’s back like they never left. In celebration of their iconic phone’s 20th anniversary – Nokia is bringing back the mobile that had everyone in the early 2000s making excuses just to be on the phone.
Originally released in 2001, the 6310 is making a comeback, allowing Nokia to jump on the Y2K trend train that in all honesty, they were a huge part of creating back in the day.
For those who are giving Y2K a squint, the term refers to ‘Year 2000’. It became popularised this year after multiple trends that were definitions of the naughties era returned with grace, ranging from fashion (anyone been wondering why Crocs are back and low-rise jeans have returned?) to music (the punk-style for one has made its way back onto the music scene – just listen to Happier Than Ever.)
Back to the 6310.
The re-release is still embodying it’s original nifty style, but it also has some new updates.
For example, the battery life is rumoured to be 21 days. The relaunched 6310 will also have a one-month standby time and 22 hours of talk time.
Some features are set to stay the same. The iconic snake game for one is slithering its way right back into our hearts.
According to the Mirror, an HMD Global spokesperson said that: “the Nokia 6310 is a classic reimagined for today’s connected user.”
The new Nokia is set to debut in dark green, yellow, black and also light blue (in India) as per Creativebloq.
We can’t wait to relive our Y2K tech aesthetic dreams.
