The much-awaited Nokia 3310 has finally been launched in Pakistan, HMD Global stated in a press release on Friday.

The original Nokia 3310, considered legendary for its hardiness, was a rugged handset with a battery life lasting weeks. A total of 126 million units were sold worldwide.

Nokia's new 3310 has a battery which boasts a 22-hour talk-time, living up to its predecessor's name. Its 1,200 mAh battery will give users 31 days on standby.

It will also come with a revamped version of the Snake game, which many users of the older handset spent hours playing in their youth.

Launched at a retail price of Rs6,490, the new Nokia 3310 will come in four distinctive colours — Warm Red and Yellow, both with a gloss finish, and Dark Blue and Grey, both with a matte finish — the press release stated.

In his statement, the HMD Global country head in Pakistan, Kamran Khan, said the company had decided to release the phone in Pakistan after seeing how excited Pakistani consumers were following the announcement of the phone at the Mobile World Congress in February 2017.

The phone comes in dual Sim variants as well as 32 gigabytes of extendable memory.
