Nokia took to the stage at IFA 2019 to announce 5 new phones to its portfolio. While two of them are the next iterations in the budget 5 and 6 series, the remaining three are modern takes on classic Nokia phones of the yesteryears: the Nokia 2720 Flip, the‌ Nokia 800 Tough and the Nokia 110.

The feature phones are a product of the realisation that there still exists a market for basic, easy-to-use feature phones. By adding 4G and KaiOS to the mix, these feature phones make for a great choice for the elderly or even as a secondary phone for all.
