The Internet is so cruel that anything fake can become viral overnight and one of the examples is Nokia 3310 found with 70% battery after 20 years news.
We are sorry to hurt you but this news is fake. We must say thank you to the satirical news website called the ‘Chesterbungle‘ which publishes this news as a satire. This website is popular for news with ridiculous titles and satirical stories that seem to be impossible but the real one.
From the website:
Kevin Moody, a roofer from Ellesmere Port, has recently cleared out his ‘man draw’ looking for a key to the shed when he stumbled upon his old Nokia 3310 mobile phone. The phone was still switched on, and had been forgotten about for 20 years.
Incredibly the phone still had just over 70% battery remaining. Kevin remarked how he didn’t ever remember charging the mobile, or even owning a charger.
Today’s mobile phones, such as iPhones, have an average battery life of around 17 minutes and require plugging in throughout the day in order to have enough power for the bus or train ride home. The Nokia 3310, however, never required charging. Ever.
It even says: Scientists believe that Nokia, rather than make a mobile phone, had instead created renewable energy.
Several reputed news houses started to publish this news without any further investigation. Anyways, this one is fake for now.
