Ahh Happy Valentines Day! Love is in the air for Nokia fans if the story about a possible Nokia 3310 comeback is true.

Evan Blass (@evleaks) at Venture Beat reports that there are some lower end Android Nokia’s that are expected, a Nokia 3 and a Nokia 5 – both presumably lower specs and price points than the previously China only Nokia 6.

Expected specs for 5: 5.2″, 12mp, 2GB RAM, 720p display, 199EUR. No specs to go on for Nokia 3 but it could be 149 EUR.

But what we’re most interested in is a rebuilt Nokia 3310. This is the internet’s favourite phone. The warm nostalgia behind the 3310’s indestructibility is legendary, as well as other qualities, a phone rebuilt around the Nokia 3310 was something we pondered could be a great marketing angle for an explosive first time Nokia return (as we know, we’ve gone the drips and drabs route). Well, whilst not an entirely rebuilt smartphone version around durability and longevity, there maybe a more modern 3310 (perhaps one that would work on 3G/4G bands) aimed at around 59 EUR.

but a modern version of a classic workhorse of a feature phone, the Nokia 3310.

I don’t want some Nokia 150 esque mobile phone. Call it a 3310 in anyway and it needs to have as much 3310 soul. Unless this is ‘merely’ a robust mobile phone.

Evan notes HMD has an event on the 26th of this month – 12 days away. We’ll hear of Nokia and HDM’s global chapter for mobiles.
