HMD Global just launched a refreshed Nokia 2660 Flip phone


Nokia 2660 Flip phone: Classic Nokia phones are clearly making a comeback and it turns out Gen Z users have quite a good interest in them as they seek to limit screen time.

Nokia has been listening and the company just unveiled the Nokia 2660 Flip phone. The flip phone has been launched in Pop Pink and Lush Green and comes exactly 25 years after the launch of Nokia’s first ever flip phone back in 1998.

Well, HMD Global actually first announced the phone last year but it’s now making it available in two new colours.

Lars Silberbauer Chief Marketing Officer from HMD Global said: ”There’s been a surge of interest in flip phones, and we believe that the interest is coming from a need to take a break from the constant flow of incoming digital notifications, social media posts and more.”

”People want more simplicity, more face-to-face time, more time to think, and time to have an uninterrupted conversation! I’m sure we all have examples where a beautiful life moment has been spoiled by a distraction or notification.  That’s why we are re-introducing the Nokia 2660 Flip, to give people these important beautiful life moments back.” he added.

The Nokia 2660 Flip phone is a 4G device with a dual display setup of a 2.8-inch primary and a 1.77-inch secondary screen.

The phone is powered by the Unisoc T107 processor, and it has an MP3 player, Bluetooth 4.2, wireless FM radio, and microSD card support of up to 32 GB.

Nokia 2660 Flip phone houses a 1450 mAh battery that charges through a micro-USB port. There is a 0.3 MP camera alongside a LED flash. It also has an emergency button that can help one reach up to 5 contacts at once.

Hoping to see HMD Global making the phone available in Kenya because I am definitely going to get myself one.
