Nokia 9 PureView headlines the brand's list of upcoming Prime Day deals with a massive $200 discount

Nokia 9 PureView headlines the brand's list of upcoming Prime Day deals with a massive $200 discount
The busiest shopping day(s) of the summer are right around the corner, and although Amazon isn't exactly taking our breath away with its early Prime Day deals available already, we're starting to receive word from various top brands of what's in the pipeline for July 15 and 16.

Keen on making headlines before the actual 48-hour sales event kicks off, exclusive Nokia brand licensee HMD Global is today revealing its full list of upcoming discounts. Starting from the top of the food chain, we can't say we're too surprised to hear the high-end Nokia 9 PureView will go a whopping 200 bucks off its $699 regular price on Monday, finally beating the best introductory deals from a few months back.

While highly anticipated, the Nokia 9 PureView release left a lot of reviewers disappointed, although to its credit, HMD has been working hard to improve the key weakness of the 6-inch handset. Powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor and 6GB RAM, the Android One phone is certainly not worth 700 bucks, but this impending Prime Day discount will definitely boost its appeal and value for money proposition.

Meanwhile, the upper mid-range Nokia 7.1 is looking at a cool $100 price reduction, with the smaller and slightly humbler Nokia 6.1 slated to receive a $30 cut, and the entry-level Nokia 3.1 gearing up for a surprisingly large $50 (or 31 percent) discount. All markdowns are calculated compared to the original list prices of these already affordable Android phones, and they are all likely to come into effect on Monday, July 15, catering exclusively to Amazon Prime-subscribing bargain hunters.

Now THAT is a deal! If I didn’t already own one, I’d snatch one up then for sure. Such a good smartphone, and what you can do with the photos since they are packed with so much information is incredible. You can really churn out some breathtaking images. HMD has been working hard to fix the very few issues this smartphone has had. The best Nokia branded smartphone on the market today, and one of the most underrated smartphones out now.

Actually itbs unusual for manufacturer offering such a price down with flagship line product, only 2 monyhs afyrr the official release. Dont be fooled and recommend to do research before, the response time with 5 lens, the unauthorised Gorilla glass display, the fingerprint scanning issue, the charging dock, 30 seconds photo processing time, the processor...... Just my warm advise coz i own one right aftrr their release and now in a regret.

$499 is a more palatable price than $700 is. It does have some issues and bugs and is definitely a niche device, but it does have some good specs. Compared to the very midrange KeyTWO that's still going for $600~ I'd say this is not a bad deal. I still think the 7.1 is the better phone imo but you can't go too wrong with the Pureview at the sale price.

Can't say enough how good this deal is. When compared to other deals on certain smartphones for Prime Day, this is the better choice, IMO. You get a great device, no matter how niche it is (which HMD already said was a niche device, so it's not like it's marketed as something other than), and it comes with far less bugs than some devices from industry stalwarts like Google with it's Pixel line, who has some devices on sale this day as well. It's the best Nokia branded smartphone you can get, and that is a fact.

Sometimes it's better to not say anything if you have nothing to add that is of importance. This being a better choice is highly subjective. As I said before, this device isn't for me but I wouldn't shy away from recommending it at the sale price. Just because it has slightly better specs doesn't necessarily mean that it's the better phone compared to the Nokia 7.1 which btw has a headphone jack, a micro SD card slot, and a FPS. Those are several things that the Pureview doesn't have and those might be significant features for some people. That is why I said it's the better device of the two and that is my opinion. The Pureview still has a few significant issues that makes it less suitable than other industry "stalwarts." Best Nokia smartphone is an opinionated statement.

This being a better choice is not subjective: Nokia 9 Pureview has better imaging prowess. This is a fact. 6 cameras (including the ToF camera) that capture far more information and produce much better photos: Fact. The Nokia 9 Pureview has the SD845, which is much more powerful then the SD636: Fact. The Nokia 9 Pureview DOES have a FPS: Fact. You listed things that the N9PV doesn’t have, and included a FPS. That’s incorrect. The Nokia 9 Pureview is more powerful, has better performance, a bigger battery, and has better imaging prowess. That makes it the better smartphone. The lack of a micro-SD card slot and headphone jack are a bummer, but the better performance due to the much more powerful SoC, bigger battery and much better imaging prowess overcomes the former. This may be a niche smartphone, but people want what performs better, lasts longer, and takes much better photographs. And with this latest update improving the imaging processing speed and FPS, more people will want this niche smartphone. These are facts. The Nokia 9 Pureview also has much less issues than industry stalwarts like Google with it’s Pixel line, making it a very suitable smartphone. Google can’t even launch a beta without it crashing out of the gate, lol. Don’t get me wrong, the Pixels are decent enough smartphones, but outside of the camera, they are “meh” at best. Too many issues and horrible designs prove this. The Nokia 9 Pureview being the best Nokia branded smartphone is pure fact, and I just proved it. The only reason you’re saying it isn’t is because I’m the one that’s saying it. You should take your own advice about not saying anything if you have nothing of importance to add, because you either don’t know the specs of The N9PV saying it’s specs are only “slightly better” and that it doesn’t have a FPS, or you’re made it up in the hopes that I wouldn’t call you out on it, adding nothing of importance, just lip service. This is also how I know you aren’t as knowledgeable about smartphones as you pretend to be.

Wrong, it is subjective. You can give yourself a thumbs up after this. And? That just screams niche because the average person isn't going to care if all they need is something to point and shoot. I never said it was faster, but again who cares if it's fast enough to do what the user wants? You said it yourself in several Nokia articles or is this another instance of you being a hypocrite? Don't be stupid. You know what the f- I meant. You've read my comments enough to know that I value having a "physical" FPS otherwise why would I continue to call Apple out? Everything you said is subjective. End of story. Just because it overcomes the former for you doesn't mean that it will for someone else. You are just an aggressive Nokia hypocrite. You are also just mad because the Pixel 3A is still the best phone ever and it tears you up inside to know that. The lukewarm user reviews say otherwise. It's not the best Nokia phone. Fact. Dry the tears and grow up. You don't get to dictate anything. You act like you're the Nokia CEO or something with how you jump on everyone that says something about Nokia that you don't like.

Wrong as usual. It’d not subjective, it’s a fact that’s pretty obvious when head to head comparisons are done. You can continued to give yourself the one thumbs up from your one alt account left after this. It being niche does nit negate the fact that it takes better photos, nor is niche a bad thing. That part of your comment is a fail. You said the 7.1 was better. If it’s better, than it has to be better in the most basic and meaningful ways, which it isn’t. That’s another fail for you. Lmao don’t switch up now because I called you out for not knowing what the fck you’re talking about concerning the FPS. You said twice that it doesn’t have one, as if that was a fact and it’s not. Looks like you need to take your own advice about “don’t be stupid”. Everything I said is a fact. Period. It overcomes the former in every way that is meaningful for the consumer, and offers much more in the way of protection, like water and dust resistance. You are just an aggressive Pixel hypocrite that thinks that you yelling the Pixel 3A is the best phone ever at the top of your lungs will make it true, but it won’t. The salty tears and frustration must really have you fuming over this fact. For every “lukewarm review” there is a glowing review, and The N9PV is the best Nokia branded smartphone currently out right now. That’s a fact. Care to go link for link concerning the glowing reviews vs the lukewarm ones to to see? Meanwhile, it’s a fact that the Pixel line on a whole is the most bug ridden android smartphone line to date. Dry your tears and pull up your big girl panties. You don’t get to talk like your word is gospel here. You act like you’re the CEO of Google or something with how you jump on everyone that says something about the Pixel line that you don’t like.

Just a warm remind that u may not aware. I have my Nokia 9 pureview in Apr, but the display glass shattered at the ear piece last month, the phone has never been dropped and it still cracked under normal use. The warranty will not be applicable to such human damage as they insisted. Ii s unbelievable and i checked over again, revealed that, the HMD is not enlisted a authorised manufacturer of Corning Gorilla glass, but the HMD is still provided a misleading information on their official site. Corning.com/gorillaglass/worldwide/en/glass-types/​​gorilla-glass-5.html corning.com/gorillaglass/worldwide/en/full-product​​-list.html Nokia: Nokia Lumia 830, Nokia Lumia 735, Nokia Lumia 730, Nokia Lumia 2520, Nokia X7, Nokia T7-00, Nokia Oro, Nokia N9, Nokia N8, Nokia Lumia 928, Nokia Lumia 92,5 Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Lumia 822, Nokia Lumia 81,0 Nokia Lumia 800, Nokia Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 1320, Nokia Lumia 1520, Nokia Lumia 625, Nokia E7, Nokia E6, Nokia C7, Nokia C6, Nokia Astound (T-Mobile US), Nokia 808, Nokia 801T, Nokia 702T, Nokia 701, Nokia 700, Nokia Asha 503, Nokia Lumia Icon I wrote to the Corning and a reply is confirmed. Definitely there is a problem with the display module and the warranty is covering nothing. Think it through if want to buy, all we can tell, the display glass is fragile and u may prepare an additional cost of US$200 to replace that, but likely not a gorilla glass and get no warranty in such case.

Wow, I've been reading a lot of reviews on Amazon and many of them are pretty negative. I had multiple issues with my 6.1 before I ended up returning it.

I find it very hard to believe that EVERY site, blogger etc that reviewed the Nokia 9 Pureview and mentioned that it uses Corning Gorilla Glass Five got it wrong. And cracked “under normal use”? You need to post information to prove what you’re saying. HMD wouldn’t be enlisted as an “authorized manufacturer of Corning Gorilla Glass”, because they don’t manufacture Corning Gorilla Glass. Corning does. You said you wrote to Corning and a reply confirmed it. Care to share the actual reply? I’m trying to see something, Not saying that you are a liar, but anyone with a modicum of intelligence or that doesn’t like to jump on the bandwagon of someone saying something negative about what they don’t like and don’t even know whether the phone actually has a FPS or not would say it’s hard to believe what you’re saying without any solid proof. At the risk of sounding anecdotal, I’ve dropped my Nokia 9 Pureview from more than once with it landing face first and at an angle with no damage to it.

Hey not-so-genius, wait for what? I’m don’t plan on dropping my Nokia 9 Pureview. You first says that HMD was manufacturing Corning Gorilla Glass. Now you’re flip-flopping worse than a fish on dry land, lol. But as I said, I find it hard to believe that EVERY reviewer that reviewed this smartphone and mentioned Corning Gorilla Glass 5 got it wrong. I also can’t click the links you sent, as you are too new here. You have to wait a while for links you post to be viewable. Again, you haven’t provided any solid proof about what you say. I’ve dropped my phone and haven’t had this happen. The only issue I’ve experienced is the in-screen fingerprint sensor being crap, and the slow processing time for photos, which was addressed in a recent update. The article was posted on this site. Also, you made an account here and the first you do is complain? You mean to tell me you made your account explicitly to complain about a phone? Suspect. You seem like an alt account. HMD build quality has been fine by me. As I said, you seem like an alt account of someone familiar here.

The backtracking and deflecting is highly evident. Some people are so hypocritical. They complain and exaggerate things with the Pixel, but turn a blind eye to obvious issues with the Pureview.

,,, i have empathy for you, i have owned two new Nokias, an N8 i bought which lost all speakers, this replaced with a N8.1, most unhappy, bugs everywhere. Tried to sell it but to no avail, so i bought a HTC U11, i could not be happier. Sadly i say the Nokia's i have experienced are shoddy

I take my N9 to repair by specialized technician, they have no wonder to my issue, they fixed lots of Nokia repairing order,s and knowing best with the rebranded Nokia, the display glass, charging dock, fingerprint scanner... Commonly with defects. The HMD rebranded a Nokia label, but the design is poor, no difference to other low end phone from China. My first handset is Nokia 20yrs ago, for all Nokia by the HMD, Not recommended any one of them.
