Nokia relaunched its simple but classic 3310 phone in its home market of Finland on Wednesday, hoping a wave of nostalgia may boost the brand as it expands into newer smartphones.

Once the world’s dominant phonemaker, Nokia Oyj sold its handset operations to Microsoft in 2014, leaving it to focus on telecoms network equipment.

But its brand has gone back on the mobile market across much of Europe and India thanks to a licensing deal with HMD Global, a new company led by former Nokia executives and backed by Chinese electronics giant Foxconn.

HMD has sole use of the Nokia brand on all phones and tablets for the next decade, and it will pay royalties to Nokia Oyj.

The two companies said today they’ve reached agreement to settle all litigation pertaining to the dispute, inking a multi-year patent license.

Nokia will be getting an upfront cash payment, followed by further revenues over the term of the agreement. Its suit had covered a swathe of patents, including from NSN and Alcatel-Lucent (following its full acquisition of both), related to technologies including software, video coding, chipsets, display, UI and antenna.

Who here is a Nokia fan? If you are, then you must have heard of Nokia to launch a new smartphone line next year at the Mobile World Congress. Yeah, the same legendary brand that produced the 3210 and 3310 (back when mobile phones were tough as coffin nails). For all those who had the privileged to own those mobile phones back in the day, you must be very excited like me.
