HMD Global, the maker of the new Nokia phones, has launched its new smartphone in the United States on Verizon’s 4G network called Nokia 2720 V Flip. As the name indicates, the phone comes with a clamshell flip design.
The company calls it a “smart feature phone” and comes with a 1.3-inch outer display that displays caller ID as well as time, day, and date. The primary display on the phone is 2.8-inch with QVGA resolution and there’s a number and d-pad on the bottom part.
Under the hood, the device is powered by the Qualcomm 205 chipset, coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. To make it a “smartphone,” the company opted to use KaiOS that supports the most popular apps like Youtube, WhatsApp, and Facebook among many others. There’s also a KaiStore, similar to the Play Store, for the users to download more applications on the device.
It supports 4G LTE connectivity that allows HD calls and watching videos. There’s also a feature that enables users to convert the phone into a Wi-Fi hotspot. It also comes with an emergency button and some other accessibility aspects.
The phone comes with support for Google Assistant for voice commands. It is powered by a 1,500mAh battery that is removable and charges over micro-USB. The company is promising a standby time of 26 days.
