Nokia is cashing in on nostalgia and relaunching its old school 3310 model in New Zealand, complete with the snake game.

The 3G phones will hit stores on November 7 and will be sold for $99.

They'll be available in two colour options: warm red and charcoal, both with silver keypads. The phones have been redesigned to have more spacing between the buttons to allow for more comfortable use.

The retro user interface has also been updated to allow for customisation, letting users change the icon colours and positions.

HMD Global is bringing the products to the New Zealand market. Regional general manager Mark Trundle said fans have long been asking for Nokia to bring back the old phones.

"Our reimagining of the Nokia 3310 has been a global and cultural phenomenon. In a world dominated by smartphones, the mix of nostalgia and a beautiful phone that just keeps going has captured people's imagination."
