'the old-technology upgraded'
'old-technology with a face-lift'

- To substitute new or modernized parts or systems for older equipment
- To provide (a jet, automobile, computer, or factory, for example) with parts, devices, or equipment not in existence or available at the time of original manufacture.

change the structure or form of (something, especially a building, policy, or procedure).
Also the following might work:
I would consider 'refurbished' if that makes sense in your context.
Also, it's common to hear about automobiles and the like being 'restored.' The connotation here is that it is put back to its original spec and not usually enhanced.
One might also consider 'two point oh' (2.0), which would signify it's the next generation of such a technology.
Behold! The Acme Toothbrush 2.0! It's revolutionary!!!
Novantique: both new and old through repair or imitation

Or you could go for a tongue-in-cheek oxymoron like up-to-dated.
Try this: "Classic tech, reenvisioned."
