While Samsung and Huawei are releasing their ouch-enabled high-end folding cell phones with amazing designs, Nokia brand licensee HMD Global has launched a new feature phone with a flip mechanism. The phone is aimed at entry-level users, however, it might evoke nostalgia among fans of old-fashioned flip phones with T9 keypads like Moto RAZR V3i and Nokia 7020. The new Nokia phone, named Nokia 2780 Flip, comes in multi-tones and supports FM radio and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Like most Nokia feature phones nowadays, it supports 4G VoLTE, but there’s no 5G connectivity yet.
The Nokia 2780 Flip has been released in the US, and its global availability details are still not clear. It comes with a price tag of $89.99, which roughly translates to Rs 7,400 and customers can pick either Blue and Red colours. The US-specific Nokia website shows November 7 as the estimated shipping date.
