Here is how you can witness Nokia event live from MWC 2017

26 February, 2017, 01:06 | Author: Abraham Jackson

"We'll be announcing live on Facebook the details of our Nokia smartphones on Android - see it here first!". Little wonder then that they are excited by news reports that the Nokia 3310 could well be making a comeback at Mobile World Congress starting in Barcelona on February 26.

When it goes on sale following its launch on Sunday, the new Nokia 3310 is expected to fetch just €59 (around £50). HMD Global's 3310 relaunch will also feature a color display instead of the monochrome screen from the original model, and it will be available in at least six colors including black, gray, blue, green, red and yellow. Rumors and leaks suggest LG has scrapped the modular design of the LG G5 for a more standard metal unibody form factor.

The world's largest mobile phone conference, the Mobile World Congress (MWC), kicks off officially in Barcelona on Monday, with the industry's biggest names heading to the Catalan region of Spain to unveil their new gadgets and discuss the industry's most pressing issues. Nokia 3310 is a feature phone that is made with bare minimum hardware required to make calls. But don't expect a dazzling display, because the phone will still retain the unbelievable battery life of the original. "They have changed the design completely; it's oval shaped now". And apparently, the new Nokia 3310 will not be a smartphone.

Online speculation suggests Nokia plans to reintroduce the phone alongside a more premium device as an cheap second phone option, creating a wave of nostalgia in the process.

10000 steps a day is a meaningless fitness goal, says science
My health app states that I walk on average 10, 689 steps a day - so if we're going by the advised step average I'm doing good. These days 10,000 steps has become something of a mantra as a route to fitness, or at least the appearance thereof.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that United Kingdom customers will have limited access to the device as only one retailer will sell the revamped Nokia 3310. So, what is new with Nokia 3310?

Anyway, at this point, we should also let you know that there has been no confirmation (or denial) from Nokia regarding the launch of this new Nokia 3310.

Chinese website Vtech (nah, not the one that makes dodgy kids toys) has the scoop, which reveals the new Nokia 3310 won't be too dissimilar from the original and is described as a "modern version of a classic workhorse".
