A popular KaiOS phone is the Alcatel Go Flip which I don't think has any kosherizing solution yet.


So the Alcatel Go Flip can also have whats app and other apps while having 4G VoLTE?

So whats so exiting about the new Nokia?

You got the wrong link. Here is the link for the Nokia 2720.
https://nokiapoweruser.com/nokia-2720-flip-4g-specifications-release-date-photos-price-more/

How would I know if it supports VoLTE in the US?
I was aware that the link is for a different phone. The 2720 and the 800 tough are being released concurrently with similar software.

What makes you think there's a US version being released. From what I see there isn't one yet, so I doubt whether it will support VoLTE (or all US LTE bands for that matter) at this point, which is rather sad. I really can't understand why they don't release truly global phones like the iPhone, Google phones, and several Motorola phones.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I believe that such a product does not exist. There is no such phone (even for $400 or more...) that is officially Verizon compatible.

The closest is the TracFone ZTE Cymbal-T LTE Android Flip.
Why only close? It runs on the Verizon network. Will full android. However after using it one day I realized that it does not support VoLTE, which is what we all so desperately need.

Is there ANY flip phone which supports whatsapp while supporting VoLTE? Either CDMA or GSM carriers.

No, it does not support Whatsapp.

Only close, because it is not an official "Verizon" phone (and probably can have issues getting Verizon to activate it, maybe depending on where you get t from.)

Let us know how it works. Also need to know if it can be unlocked and used in Israel.
