Nokia 3310 is making a huge come back and continues to roll out region by region. On the other hand, the faking industry has already started to cash the popularity of this Nokia phone even before when the original Nokia 3310 started shipping.

Now, when HMD Global has officially launched the remake of iconic Nokia 3310 in Pakistan, we are supposed to alert you once again because the original Nokia 3310 isn’t that cheap as you would have expected.

For the reason, many might believe they should buy some gray channeled Nokia 3310 instead. But who’ll confirm if you are buying an original product which is just imported by unofficial means or it’s just a fake one which has fooled many already?

One such example right in Pakistan is the facebook page Mobile.pk which was reportedly selling Nokia 3310 even before it’s available today in the country. Some suggested these were gray channeled devices unofficially brought to Pakistan market. Even upon asking by users about it being an original or replica, page admin tried to be clever by not answering exactly but telling “it’s made in Vietnam”.
