The world is in for a blast from the past as Sony is getting set to bring back its Walkman with its new and improved version.

As announced on Friday at leading yearly consumer electronics trade show IFA 2019, held in Berlin, Sony will be reviving the 1979-released portable music player for its 40th anniversary edition.

As per reports the Sony NW-A100TPS will come with a design revamp containing a case and package that marks as a tribute to the original TPS-L2 Walkman while also staying true to the original shape in some way by adding a unique cassette tape interface.

It was further revealed by the company that the new version will also be easy on the pockets, with no branding for the 40th anniversary.
