Chinese mobiles offer Dual SIM and multi SIM support which made them very popular all over the country. People buy SIMs of different cellular network companies to avail their attractive offers. But not anymore, Nokia introduced its first Dual SIM mobile phones back in 2010 – via Nokia C1 and C2. Now Nokia mobile dual SIM range has extended to Smartphone and touch screen dual SIM mobiles, most popular among them was C2-03. As Nokia is a trusted brand – people have started preferring to buy Nokia dual SIM mobiles on Chinese mobiles.
Last year, many Chinese mobile brands were banned in Pakistan due to security risks. Chinese mobiles had same IMEI number which made it difficult to trace the user. Terrorists were using Chinese mobiles to carry out their heinous crimes in the country, especially in Karachi. This has made Nokia mobile phones even more popular in Pakistan.
