The 90s generation was grabbing it. Essential in the 2000s, the Nokia 3210 is preparing for a resounding return with a modern approach, thus adapting to the times.

HMD-owned Nokia is working its way into that nostalgia core by launching its old 3210, and it could be available within a week.

This simple device, first released in 1999, has sold more than 150 million units worldwide, making it one of the most popular call transmitters ever.

Now, this classic feature phone seems to be making a comeback. A recently leaked image claims to show what’s next at HMD Global and touts that the “legendary phone is back” after a 25-year wait.

An image of the device was also revealed, showing a camera on the rear case as well as a much larger color display. Those who owned the original model were only treated to a small, very basic 1.5-inch backlit monochrome LCD screen.

The latest version can also benefit from long battery life, full access to 4G data speeds, and the all-important Snake game that so many of us loved to play in the 90s.

“Paying homage to the original design of the Nokia 3210, the Nokia Icon has been completely rebuilt, combining a new modern design with a retro interface for a true nostalgic journey,” can we read on the leaked documents.

A full announcement will be made next week. Some mobile experts estimate that the phone will cost €89. The 3210 won’t be the only new feature phone hitting stores. After joining forces with toy company Mattel, HMD Global says it will also launch a Barbie Flip Phone this summer.
