When people are asked what their favourite phone is, out of all they've ever owned, many will say the Nokia 3310. When it originally debuted 17 years ago in 2000, the 3310 was the phone to have. Not only did it look great, but it was also indestructible, never needed software updates, and it had arguably the best mobile game of all time, Snake. According to a report by VentureBeat, HMD Global Oy, the Finnish company which has exclusive rights to sell phones under the Nokia name, is planning to unveil four Nokia handsets at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company is said to be unveiling the Nokia 6, which is currently only available in China, as well as the Nokia 5, the Nokia 3, and a 2017 edition of the Nokia 3310.
