Nokia's Throwback Flip Phone Is Releasing in the U.S.

Would you ditch your iPhone for the Nokia 2720?

Introduced in 2019, Nokia‘s 2720 flip phone offers a nostalgic alternative to flashy smartphones laden with high-tech features and apps. Two years after its overseas release, the pared-down phone is finally releasing in the U.S., thanks to Verizon.

By current standards, the 2720 features a minuscule screen, measuring at 2.8 inches. Though the device has 4G internet connectivity, capability is limited: users can access basic apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, Google Assistant and a web browser. A major throwback, a physical keypad will put your T9 texting skills to the test. Finishing off the retro-style phone, an exterior display shows the time, date and caller ID. Due to its pared down approach, battery life is far longer than smartphones such as the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy — here’s to the days when cell phone users could go days without charging their devices.

Nokia’s 2720 flip phone will retail for $80 USD and launch in the U.S. through Verizon.
