Nokia Re-Releases Classic 6310 ‘Brick’ Phone

13 October 2021

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Nokia is re-releasing its classic 6310 ‘brick’ phone – with a twist!

The chunky phone has been re-released with some upgrades including a large curved colour display to provide users with improved readability and accessibility.

However, the new phone will also keep some of its old features such as its tough shell, wireless FM radio, a long-lasting battery life (21 days!) and, of course, the iconic game Snake game.

The 6310 was first launched in 2001 and quickly became a hit with phone users in the noughties. It was updated in 2002 before being discontinued in 2005.

“The new Nokia 6310 takes the iconic silhouette of the original and brings it up to date with some great new additions such as a large curved screen, improved readability and accessibility,” the description on the Nokia website reads.

“Plus a host of classic features you know and love: a wireless FM radio, an impressive battery that can go weeks between charges, and let’s not forget the classic Snake.

“It’s all built in a tough shell [made from paolycarbonate], so it can take life’s bumps.

“The Nokia 6310 is the familiar phone, for the modern world.”

The phone is currently available in two colourways – black and yellow – and is available for £59.99 on the Nokia website.
