Fans have been excited since February when parent company HMD Global announced that the iconic phone would be making a comeback.

Costing £49.99, the iconic 90's phone features a battery capable of lasting up to a month, limited 2.5G internet connection and a two megapixel camera.

The new and improved 3310 will also feature the legendary built-in game, Snake, as a homage to the original device.
