If you’ve never owned a flip phone, the device basically consists of two or more sections connected by hinges that open or close. When opened, the phone’s screen and keypad are visible, with most designed to fit in your pocket in the folded state. Did you know that Motorola once owned the trademark for the term flip phone? It made sense at the time since they made the StarTAC flip phone in the 1990s, as well iconic RAZR during the mid-2000s. HMD Global wants to put a modern twist on this classic form factor with the Nokia 2720 Flip.
The Nokia 2720 may not have all the bells and whistles of HMD Global’s recently announced Nokia 7.2 model, but it does keep things simple, yet functional. Featuring a 1.3-inch external display, a 2.8-inch main display, 4GB of internal storage, microSD expansion (up to 128GB max.), 4G connectivity, and a 1,500 mAh battery that lasts for up to 27-days on standby, all running on KaiOS.
Despite not running Android OS, it still has WhatsApp and Facebook apps installed to keep you connected. Plus, there’s even Google Assistant so you can get more done using just your voice. The phone will be available in select markets later this month, priced at €89 ($98 USD).
