Ever wondered what the great phones of yesteryear would look like with a modern mobile OS and beefed-up specs? Well, you can tell your imagination to give it a rest now, as Nokia has posted pictures of its evergreen 3310
, now running Windows Phone, and having a telling "hump" on the back. That protrusion turns out to be none other than the 41 MP PureView camera module we know from the Lumia 1020
, which will ensure oodles of photographic fun with the reinvented 3310
. Nokia managed to stuff a dual-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, and a microSD slot in dimensions close to the original's casing, gracing the new 3310 with a 3-inch "Clear Diamond" display that sports the generous 768 x 1280 pixels.
Of course it's an April Fools' joke, but it makes us longing for the times when the phones lasted a week on a charge, and there weren't hundreds of thousands of game titles to choose from, so those Snake sessions turned oh-so-intense. We are certain Nokia would have some customers for this thing, if it manages to indeed pull it off, though we doubt it will last as long on a charge as its original inspiration.
