HMD brings the Nokia 2720 flip phone back from the dead

HMD brings the Nokia 2720 flip phone back from the dead

It was launched in Black and Grey colours.

In addition to sending texts and making calls, the Nokia 110 comes with multimedia capabilities like a 32GB memory card for music, an FM radio player, and a camera on the back. It also comes with legendary snake games along with four try-and-buy games. You won't really get AMOLED feel from it but this is the closest you can get from an LCD screen. Also available in September is the Nokia 2720 Flip, which is priced at EUR89 (~RM413). While the foldable phone opens up to a second screen, you can still answer calls with the phone shut.

For those looking for a bit of nostalgia, the Nokia 2720 Flip will be right up your alley.

The Nokia 2720 Flip might as well be the classiest feature phone when it goes on sale.

The Nokia 110 comes in single SIM and dual SIM variants and packs an 800mAh battery with a standby time of 18.5 days and u to 14 hours of talk time. There are more smart features courtesy of KaiOS, including WhatsApp and Facebook.

It's also fairly standard in the connectivity department, offering Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, 802.11 b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi and NFC support alongside 4G connectivity.

The rugged feature phone is IP68 rated making it water and dust resistant.

The feature phone is loaded with Google Assistant and it supports other apps like Facebook, WhatsApp. The keypad is both rubberized and elevated to make it easier to use when typing with gloves on as well. There is a loop at the bottom of the phone through which one can attach it to bags or belts.

On the back of the 800 Tough is a 2MP camera, speaker, and an LED light.

As for battery life, buyers will be able to get an impressive 48 days of usage out of the Nokia 800 Tough. This phone will cost users a cool 109 Euro. Priced at 249 Euros, it will be available in the beginning of October. HMD Global says that Nokia 6.2 is made using a polymer composite that seems like glass but is actually not.

One odd difference between these devices is the inclusion (in official spec sheets) of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the 6.2, but Gorilla Glass 2.5D on the 7.2. In terms colors, you'll have the choice between Ceramic Black or Ice (which has a tint of blue). Round the front a 20MP seflie snapper resides in the small waterdrop notch at the top of the display. Any content you view is also automatically scaled in HDR. Else, one can re-map it to activate Google Assistant. When your phone is charging, the always-on display will allow you to view calendar appointments, commute times, and more, all at a glance. This is the successor of the Nokia 6.1 series and will soon be coming to India as well.

That's joined by an 8MP wide-angle lens and a 5MP depth sensor for Bokeh style portrait shots.

The differences in these setups are largely in place to handle the different sets of cameras with which the phones are equipped. The rear shooter packs a 16-megapixel primary lens (f/1.8), 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor (f/2.2), and 5-megapixel depth sensor. The smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE processor.

The Nokia 6.2, meanwhile, makes do with the still perfectly acceptable Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is paired with with 3GB or 4GB of RAM depending on the model you opt for. Storage-wise the 128GB available in the Nokia 7.2 is double what the Nokia 7.1 has, but both can accommodate MicroSD cards.
