Flip and rugged phones come with Google Assistant
HMD Global’s latest two Nokia phones are now available to buy in the UK.
The 2720 Flip runs on KaiOS, and comes with 4G, Google Assistant and pre-loaded Facebook and WhatsApp apps. More apps are available to download from the KaiOS app store.
It is available in Black for £89.99 from John Lewis and Carphone Warehouse, and will be available from Argos, Amazon, AO, A1 Comms and Go Mobile next week.
HMD Global’s chief product officer Juho Sarvikas said: “With Nokia 2720 Flip we wanted to bring modern everyday essentials like 4G, WhatsApp and the Google Assistant to a familiar flip-phone format, that fans both love and remember. Nokia 2720 Flip is the latest addition to our Originals family and joins the Nokia 8110 4G as an excellent option for people looking for a smarter feature phone.”
The Nokia 800 Tough is HMD’s first rugged device, with an IP68 rating and military grade MIL-STD-801G compliance, permitting it to withstand temperatures from -20C to 55C.
It also runs on KaiOS, coming pre-loaded with Google Assistant, Facebook and WhatsApp and with the ability to download more apps from the KaiOS app store. It is available from Amazon for £109.99.
Sarvikas added: “With Nokia 800 Tough we’ve taken durability to the next level, making sure it’s waterproof, dust-proof and climate protected. With the added drop protection, Nokia 800 Tough is truly built tough. And of course, we didn’t want to give our fans just a durable device, so we’ve made sure Nokia 800 Tough is built with today’s needs in mind. That’s why we’ve included the Google Assistant, social apps and 4G connectivity, for all the best experiences on a smart feature phone.”
