The Nokia 3310 is making its way back into the market.
According to reports, the phone will initially be available only to European and North American consumers.
The original version was retired in 2005 and it had sold 126 million units - making it the world's best selling phone, according to Nokia.
Media and tech expert Arthur Goldstuck explains that it was one of the most durable phones in the market and had a week's worth of battery life.
Goldstuck adds that the low price of the 3310 made it successful among youth at the time.
The 'brick' phone also enabled long text conversations back then, with an extended SMS character limit.
