Nokia 2720 classic feature phone could be getting 4G LTE version upgrade soon. The phone with model number TA-1170 was certified by China’s 3C communications agency, but rather than a smartphone, this handset is a feature phone. The same model number also received certification in Thailand recently.
A report earlier this month had suggested the refreshed Nokia 2720 model with 4G support was in development, so it is likely the Nokia TA-1170 certification is for the same device. To recall, the Nokia 2720 was initially launched in September 2009, thus making it a tenth-anniversary upgrade. HMD Global has scheduled an event on September 5th; there’s a good chance the Nokia 2720 might be announced at the event.
Released in 2009, next month (September) makes it exactly 10 years the device was launched. HMD Global already confirmed it will attend IFA 2019 and will have an event on September 5. We think this is a perfect opportunity to revive this classic phone.
The original Nokia 2720 Fold launched with a 1.8-inch 120 x 160 color display. It also had a second 1.36-inch 128 x 160 monochrome display on the outside when closed shut. Other features include a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2.5mm audio jack, FM radio, and an 860mAh battery.
