Nokia 9 may cost $699 in the US, to be released at the end of Q3

Although three of HMD's Nokia-branded smartphones are expected to make their global debut in the next couple of weeks, fans are more excited about those devices that haven't been announced yet.
For the moment, the Finnish company is not present at the top tier, a move that many consider wise since major brands like LG, Samsung and HTC have already announced their flagships for the first half of the year.
However, HMD does plan to compete with the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, LG G6, and HTC U Ultra, just not right now. According to a new report, the Nokia 9 is likely to be introduced at the end of July or early August, but it might not be available until the end of Q3 or even later.
The same report claims Nokia 9 will be launched globally, but prices may be different depending on regions. For example, the flagship might cost $699 in the United States, while in Europe will be available for €749 outright.
In other markets like India, Nokia 9 will be priced to sell for Rs 44,999, which is about $699, the same amount customers in the US will have to pay for the phone.
The reason Nokia 9 might not be launched on the market until the end of Q3 is due to Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 supply issues. It's also worth noting that Nokia 9 won't be the only other smartphone launched by HMD in the coming months, as the Finnish company is expected to debut 6 or 7 new devices by the end of 2017.
- Display 5.3" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 13 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3090 mAh

Will it be able to compete with s8? It's better they steer clear of flagship as comparison with s8 is inevitable

I would take Nokia proven carl zeiss camera, solid build quality and regular stock update over Samsung gimmicky favor of the year features. How many Samsung gimmicky feature such as motion or their bundled apps get popular and are still supported after they release a newer phone? Name one.

By Q3 it will likely have the same price tag TBH and if you buy from ebay then yes you can probably find it for much cheaper than $699 by Q3. Doesn't really matter anyway because ppl buy phones they like, the brand they like, or which ever has the software they like best so regards of what might be the better bang for your buck specs wise a lot of people will still get the Nokia 9 of what they might call the crappy S8.

Me too. I will never get a s**tty Samsung sh!t again since the last Galaxy S6 I had. Even when it is "premium materials" Samsung is cheap. Now they removed the removable battery, blaster, bad audio, some random defects like with the Note 7 and camera that gets outdated quickly, so I prefer not take this s**tty S8. My Nokia N8 from 2010 still take good pictures at least in daytime, not at all the Galaxy S2. Samsung = no bang for your buck.

While leaks/rumours of the note 8 and OLED iPhone is losing steam (not to forget most anticipated features) the Nokia 9 seems to remain just as interesting as the first time I heard about he device. Good news from Nokia coming soon about it soon maybe?
