Whatever Android handsets HMD ReleaseThis is a remake Nokia Classic That generates the most hype. We’ve already seen the icon take on new ones 3310, The 8110 (Aka “Calaphone”) and music-centric 5310. But nothing sounds as bad as a flip phone. OK, HMD actually released them in 2019 with the Nokia 2720 Flip (an updated version of the 2720 fold) but it wasn’t available in the US. This is about to change, although the feature phone will continue to run on this shore on May 20 as an exclusive version of Verizon (the parent company of Angadze).
Of course, the best thing about a flip phone is that you can turn it off to end a call, which is more satisfying than a screen thumb. That, along with the keypad, could justify the 80 price tag for anyone. Well, until you can adjust the tiny 2.8-inch screen. A smaller external display shows you who’s calling and lets you check your notifications.
Other than that, the new 2720 has been optimized as a feature phone with a few bells and whistles. Additions include 4G connectivity, Google Assistant, a web browser, Facebook, West App and access to a paired down Chaos app store featuring some mobile games. The lack of background apps will also make the battery last much longer than smartphones. You can grab the Nokia 2720 V Flip on May 20 from Verizon’s online store or the My Verizon app.
