As mentioned, they did adapt the phone's design to make it more modern so the screen is now 7.1cm instead of 4.5cm, and is 320x240 pixels instead of the original's 120x160 pixels.

It will also only cost you R1,215, which is obviously much cheaper than the latest smartphone and comes in three colours - black, yellow, and green.
