The Nokia 2720 Flip is a Nokia-branded flip phone developed by HMD Global. The 2720 Flip was created, as an updated version of the Nokia 2720 Fold, which debuted in 2009.[2][3] It was unveiled at IFA 2019 together with the Nokia 110 (2019), Nokia 800 Tough, Nokia 6.2, and Nokia 7.2.[4] It runs the KaiOS operating system, a web-based operating system based on B2G OS.

Target Audience[edit]

According to a 2019 article from The Verge, "If you’re seriously considering buying a feature phone like the Nokia 2720 Flip in 2019 then I think you’re likely to be one of three kinds of people. Either you live or work in the developing world, where smartphones sometimes aren’t a practical option, you’re the kind of person who thrives on nostalgia for a simpler time, or else you’re trying to do a “digital detox,” and decrease the amount of time you seem to waste staring at screens every day".[5] This fits in with the general trend of modern flip-phones being seen as a less-harmful alternative to cell phones.[6]

Software[edit]

The Nokia 2720 Flip runs on the web-based operating system KaiOS.[7] It runs many more modern apps including, but not limited to, WhatsApp, Facebook, Google Assistant and YouTube.[8]

Reception[edit]

In February 2020, the Nokia 2720 Flip received an iF Design Award 2020 by iF International Forum Design.[9][10]
