Nokia announces two new exciting feature phones with Google Assistant support”

There is also ICE which helps emergency responders access to important info such as medical details of the owner of the phone.

It may lack the style and Zeiss Optics-enabled cameras of the more expensive Nokia 7.2, but if you're looking for a decent mid-range smartphone with a great design and high-quality display, the Nokia 6.2 is certainly worth considering.

The Nokia 2720 will be available later in the month priced at for €89 euros; that's around 79 quid.

United Kingdom prices are still TBA, but prices for the Nokia 7.2 will start at €299 when it goes on sale at the end of September, while the 6.2 will kick off at €199 when it hits shop shelves next month. These phones will also receive guaranteed security updates for three years and OS upgrades for two years. The in-hand feel was every bit the equal of premium phones costing two to three times as much, and the Nokia 6.2 is priced at just 209 Euro.

Nokia 7.2 has a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with Gorilla Glass 3 on the front and back.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the Nokia 2720 Flip on the rear packs 2-megapixel camera.

On the back there's a camera, but it's not exactly going to replace your smartphone's shooter. The handset comes with an emergency button and supports Google assistant. It also features a 1.30-inch as its second display, with a resolution of 240x240 pixels.

The Nokia 6.2, meanwhile, features a cheaper Snapdragon 636 processor and just 64GB of flash memory.

Those RAM choices are married with 32GB and 64GB of storage respectively. An 8-megapixel camera (f/2) handles selfies.

Connectivity options on the Nokia 2720 Flip include Bluetooth v4.00 and Micro-USB. Android 9 Pie comes preloaded on both handsets, but it will be upgradeable to Android 10 soon. It'll also offer Qualcomm aptX audio, Android 9 Pie OS, 3.5mm audio port, and rear fingerprint sensor. Here's everything you need to know about the two new Nokia phones.

Last, but not least, the Nokia 800 ruggedized model, another feature phone, rated IP68 and MIL-STD-810G.

It has also been created to withstand extreme temperatures. It has a non-slip frame and a safety loop at the bottom for a wrist strap or lanyard and you can see screws around the body of the phone. Nokia 800 Tough carries a price tag of 109 Euros (Rs 8,700 approx) and it will available starting in October. The feature phone comes with a 2.4-inch QVGA display and it is powered by Qualcomm 205 mobile platform. Theres Google Assistant too, which can be summoned with the push of a button.

"Bringing connectivity to first time feature phone users, the Nokia 110 comes packed with entertainment on the go".

It runs KaiOS on a Qualcomm 205 chipset, but Nokia has still managed to fit in some features you wouldn't ordinarily expect on a classic clamshell. The phone packs a 1500mAh battery which can last up to 28 days in standby and provide up to 6.6 hours of talk time on 4G. The smartphone comes with a polycarbonate finish and is available in a Gamut colour variant.

The Nokia 110 is being marketed as a phone that doubles as an MP3 player. The Nokia 2720 Flip comes bundled with WhatsApp and Facebook.

Plus, as is the way, Nokia promises both phones have two day battery life.

In feature phones, HMD has phones ranging from just $20 Dollars (in the form of the Nokia 110) through to the ultra-desirable Nokia 2720 Flip which might be the first foldable phone to actually go on sale in more than one market in 2019.
