Mobile phones just aren't what they used to be... Sure, we can actually use the internet now (without having to click cancel around 50 times to stop our parents from paying for such a privilege), but the bigger screen and modern-day smartphone luxuries just don't compare to old-school week-long battery life, indestructible sassy phone cases, and the best game in the whole world ever, Snake.

Anyway, good news for anyone that thinks life was more fun before selfies and Snapchatthe Nokia 3310 is making a comeback. No, this is NOT fake newsthis is real, and this is happening.

According to Venture Beat, HMD Global (which now owns the rights to the Nokia name) will launch the Nokia 3, 5, and 6 at the Mobile World Congress later this month (February 26), as well as a nostalgic homage to the much-loved 3310, which will be sold for just €59 (P3,200).

The "modern version" of the Nokia 3310, which was first launched back in 2000, will be marketed as a way of getting long battery life in a smartphone.

Nokia's big comeback is expected to feature both Android-based phones and tablets, with HMD previously announcing that it will invest a whopping $500 million over the next three years, holding the rights to the trademark until 2024.

To conclude: may we never take the Nokia 3310 for granted again.
