Unbeatable Best Buy deal brings Nokia 9 PureView price down to... $0

Unbeatable Best Buy deal brings Nokia 9 PureView price down to... $0
The Nokia 9 PureView may well have been the greatest disappointment of the first half of this year, especially after exclusive global brand licensee HMD Global waited so long to release a true flagship smartphone. Unfortunately, said "flagship" came powered by an outdated high-end processor right off the bat, while its unique penta-lens camera setup on the back (with a sixth Time-of-Flight sensor thrown in for good measure) proved to be redundant, frustratingly slow, and unstable.

For its part, HMD seemed to quickly acknowledge the many flaws and imperfections of its most powerful handset yet, selling it at mid-range prices through major retailers like Best Buy, B&H Photo Video, and Amazon just a few months after its commercial debut. With a sequel reportedly delayed until next year, the Nokia 9 PureView is back in the spotlight today, shining brighter than ever before as it goes further down from an already reduced price of 400 bucks to... $0.

Check out the deal here



That's right, Best Buy is essentially giving away the phone for free without you having to enter any lottery or win a contest of any sort. All you need to do is activate the Nokia 9 PureView at the time of your purchase on AT&T. Curiously enough, it appears only upgrading customers of the nation's second-largest wireless service provider are currently eligible for this (literally) unbeatable deal, while those looking to open an altogether new account and those activating a new line of service have to cough up $350 upfront.

Usually, it's the other way around, with the biggest discounts available for new subscribers, but the special offer is still pretty fresh, having kicked off earlier today and not being a part (at least officially) of the retailer's upcoming Black Friday frenzy, so perhaps it'll be extended before long.


If you qualify for it, there's really no arguing with the wow factor of this truly amazing deal, letting you pay absolutely nothing for a device expected to get Android 10 any day now while sporting a 6-inch P-OLED display with a top-notch resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels (and no actual notch), as well as 6GB RAM, 128GB storage space, a 20MP selfie shooter, a fast-charging 3,320mAh battery, and a premium body made from glass and aluminum to withstand water and dust contact.

Most carriers charge an upgrade fee. I mean would you really complain about paying $30 for a upper midrange phone?

Sounds like a perfect time to remind people that there is a $30 upgrade fee. Yet at the same time "$0 with activation" kind of means $0, yet that is not the case.

And despite all of those shortcomings, the Nokia 9 Pureview takes some of the best photos on any smartphone of 2019 in my opinion. Can't wait for the successor with hopefully up to date specs this time around and a larger battery.

Taking some of the best photos, perfectly debatable btw, doesn't really make up for a mediocre phone in everything else. This phone should have been the best given that it was delayed multiple times, but Nokia dropped the ball with it especially after having phones like the 7 Plus.

rsiders Agreed. The Nokia 9 Pureview does indeed take some of the best pictures shot on a smartphone in 2019. There are many posts on social media (Twitter, FB, Instagram) as well as many comparisons made on YouTube with the Nokia 9 Pureview and other flagship smartphones like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and 30 Pro, the latest iPhones and Samsung flagships that prove this. And with the price this is sold at, despite the older processor, it offers a better value than other stock Android flagships like Pixels because it has less issues and HMD offers a fantastic full OS and Security update policy. Can’t wait for the Nokia 9.1 Pureview with updates specs for launch.

I just came from BestBuy, and they told me this is a typo after the representative called the management there. I guess they already corrected the listing on BestBuy website.

If this deal is still in effect, it’s a fantastic one! What the Nokia 9 Pureview means for smartphone photography in the future is simply incredible. If the deal isn’t in effect, it’s still being offered at BestBuy for under $400 now, which is an amazing price for what you get.
