There’s a new Nokia being launched and it’s got SNAKE on it

Hashtag throwback Thursday, wha?

What was your first phone?

Was it a Sony Ericsson slidey one? Or a Motorola flip lad? Or the iconic, the stunning, the impenetrable Nokia 3310?

A king among kings, it was the greatest device of the early noughties and never again will we be graced with such mobile-based perfection.

That doesn’t mean that we have to stop trying to recreate the magic though, because we won’t – and Nokia won’t either because they’re launching a new phone at the end of this year and it includes the ultimate throwback game – Snake.

Yeah, we know. Need.

The Nokia 106 will have an impressive 4MB memory, allowing users to store up to 500 texts and 2,000 contacts… so if you’ve got loads of mates, you know where to head.

The battery will also last you about 12 hours or up to one week if you leave it on standby.

There’s also a headphone jack so you can listen to some of your favourite tunes or, just the noise from Snake whichever you prefer.

There’s been no news yet as to where exactly the new Nokia will be on sale, or how much it’ll cost, but we’d imagine it won’t be too much, and hope that it’ll be dropping into UK markets this Christmas.
