Starting at the end of this month, the 2720 Flip will be offered stateside by Verizon for a price tag of just $80 USD. The device itself carries a modest 2.8-inch screen that flips down when the phone’s not in use, closing onto the physical keypad, paired with a display on the exterior which shows information like the time, caller ID or other notifications you’re getting. Of course, HMD also gave the retro mobile phone a few welcome upgrades with more modern functionality, such as 4G connectivity, a web browser, access to apps such as Facebook and WhatsApp, and even Google Assistant. Its simplicity also means you’ll have a greatly extended battery life compared to current smartphones.
The Nokia 2720 Flip will be available over on Verizon’s website and the My Verizon App starting May 20.
