Nokia 3310

Touted as “the most reliable phone ever made,” the Nokia 3310 – discontinued in 2005 – will be relaunched by HMD Oy Global, a Finnish manufacturer with the exclusive rights to market the Nokia brand. This revamped device will initially be available only to European and North American consumers, priced at $62. The original phone sold extremely well, being one of the most successful phones with 126 million units sold worldwide. It was popular for SMS text messaging because it allowed long messages three times the size of a standard SMS text message, at 459 characters.

Motorola RAZR Plus

Motorola may not be a household name like it once was, but that doesn’t mean its future handsets can’t compete with other big names. The RAZR Plus is not only ultra slim, but will reportedly have a 4K display and wireless headphone compatibility, similar to the iPhone 7 / 8. Its liquid metal frame ensures strength and durability.

Light Phone

Think of the Light Phone as an anti-smartphone, since it can only send calls and receive them. You won’t be able to text, connect to social media, and take photos with it. In fact, Light’s founders Joe Hollier and Kai Tang say the device is designed to be used “as little as possible,” in hopes to cure smartphone addiction. It works independently of your phone plan, but Light’s technology enables you to keep the same number. The phone has six modes: Standby (nothing is lit up); On (shows the time and a number pad); Info (shows battery level + service bars); Speed dial (shows the names of pre-programmed contacts); Incoming (shows you who’s calling); Connected (you’ll see the timer on your call). Once available, it’s expected to be priced at $150 with the SIM and Light’s software platform costing $5 per month.
