Finnish company HMD Global — which has exclusive rights to market phones under the Nokia brand — reportedly struck the exclusive deal with Carphone Warehouse, owned by the FTSE 100-listed Dixons Carphone.
The relaunched phone is set to be unveiled in Barcelona, Spain, ahead of the mobile industry conference Mobile World Congress at the end of this month, according to VentureBeat which first reported on the phone’s relaunch.
The 3310 model achieved a cult-like status because it was a better, lighter version of its predecessor the 3210, as Techradar put it, which was the first affordable, mass-market Nokia phone.
Carphone Warehouse did not immediately respond to Business Insider for a comment.
