The company unveiled the device in Barcelona during MWC, stating that the suggested price would be 49 euros, or around $50. However, they didn't mention when the phone will be hitting markets.

Back in March, Tomislav Himbele, HMD's Head of Marketing for Eastern Europe, said that the Nokia 3310 would arrive in mid-May to early June, at least in Europe.

We now finally have some more info about the availability of the retro device. HMD has confirmed the launch dates in four countries.

First up, the new Nokia 3310 will launch on May 24th in the UK, where the phone will be available at a price of £49.99+VAT (around $65).

The device will also be available in Germany on May 26th at a price of 60 euros, followed by Netherlands and Belgium.

The Nokia 3310 should be available in other countries as well, but there's still no info on those release dates.

The feature-phone comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA display. You can choose between four colors - red, blue, yellow, and gray, with all of them being playful and will certainly stand out.
