The flip phone is back! Nokia relaunches 2720 handset with two screens and battery that lasts 27 DAYS
The handset features two screens: A 2.8in main display, and a smaller, 1.3in screen that you can use when the phone is closed.
This second display on the outside of the phone allows you to see notifications even when the phone is closed.
As well as 4G, the re-imagined 2720 boasts Google Assistant, and can even be used as a WiFi hotspot.
Because it doesn’t use much computing power, the phone can last a whopping 27 days between charges, according to Nokia.
With black and grey colour options, the 2720 goes on sale next week for around £80.
Restyling old phones has become a bit of a trend in recent years.
Nokia has led the way with a re-imagined 3310 and 8110 proving surprisingly popular.
Motorola is reportedly bringing back its iconic Razr flip phone, this time with a bendable screen that folds in two.
Also in Berlin, Nokia announced a further four phones to its roster.
These include a remake of 2012’s Nokia 110, with the new version also featuring 4G connectivity and a host of moderns apps.
That’s going for an impressive £16, according to Nokia.
A third stripped down phone, the £100 Nokia 800 Tough, was labelled Nokia’s “most durable phone ever made”.
Smartphones were also part of the show, with Nokia announcing the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 – new additions to its mid-range handsets.
