Smartphones have become the norm for many consumers when it comes to mobile technology, but the Nokia 2720 has been shown off as a new device that calls to mind an old-school design. Designed by HMD Global, the device features a flip phone functionality that is devoid of touchscreens and large displays in favor of compact components that increase the overall portability of the unit.
The cellphone has a somewhat retro design, but is well-equipped with many modern functionalities including connectivity to Facebook, WhatsApp, Google Maps, YouTube and even Google Assistant. This could make the device applicable for consumers seeking a pared-down alternative to smartphones that doesn't leave them totally disconnected from services they've become reliant on.
The Nokia 2720 is also equipped with 4G connectivity and boasts a battery that's rated for 28 days in standby mode.
