Many Indians on social media spoke about “feeling old” after learning that Nokia’s wildly popular mobile phone model 3310 had turned 20 on Wednesday.
As the Finnish company’s top-selling gadget celebrated 20 years, people spoke about the device which was the first phone for many. Most commented on its durability and battery life. People also spoke about its signature ringtone and the game Snake.
The chief product officer of HMD Global, that now manufactures Nokia mobile phones, also reshared the brand’s ‘strongest’ phone meme.
Happy 20th birthday to Nokia 3310! 🧱 Last year we announced the unbreakable Nokia 800 Tough to honor the legend 💪. More to follow in future https://t.co/T0i3NR7T4N

I can hear it ringing now. One of the classic sounds of the early 2000s.

Nokia is estimated to have sold 126 million units of the phone. Given the popularity of the phone, HMD Global even revived the Nokia 3310 with some modern touches to the iconic feature phone.
