Nokia 9 PureView goes up for pre-order with even bigger discounts and freebies in tow

Nokia 9 PureView goes up for pre-order with even bigger discounts and freebies in tow
You probably don't hear this very often in the age of iterative upgrades and global smartphone market stagnation largely caused by a general lack of innovation in the high-end segment, but the Nokia 9 PureView is truly a one-of-a-kind device. The recently unveiled 6-incher has five, count' em, five cameras slapped on its back, working simultaneously yet independently to capture the best snapshot no matter the environment, lighting conditions, or exactly how you may want to edit the photos after they are actually taken.

Despite that state-of-the-art imaging setup, as well as the integration of modern in-display fingerprint recognition and other top-notch specs (with no screen notch in tow either), the Nokia 9 PureView is one of the most affordable handsets in its class right now. It's actually cheaper than initially announced and even cheaper than what we were told just a few days ago.

Up for pre-order in the US starting today, the Snapdragon 845-powered phone can be had for as little as $549.99 from Best Buy. The only requirement you need to meet to save a whopping 150 bucks off the list price of the Nokia 9 PureView is to activate it on a new line of service with AT&T right off the bat. Otherwise, you'll have to cough up $599.99, which is still $100 lower than the MSRP announced back at the MWC 2019 trade show in Barcelona last Sunday.

But you can save even more than $150 at B&H Photo Video at the time of this writing when taking into consideration the standard value of a couple of gifts thrown in with $599.99 pre-orders. We're talking a massive 10,500 mAh Mophie Encore Plus power bank, which normally costs 80 bucks or so, as well as your choice of $39-worth NuForce BE2 Bluetooth in-ear headphones or a Huawei Band 3e activity tracker that typically fetches around $10 less.

There's no word on whether or not these freebies will be offered during the entire pre-order period, i.e. until March 11, but you should probably hurry and avoid ending up disappointed. After all, apart from a one year-old processor (that's still pretty darn fast), the Nokia 9 PureView doesn't appear to be cutting any big corners. The 2880 x 1440 P-OLED screen looks great (did we mention there's no notch or hole?), the 3,320 mAh battery is certainly no featherweight, and you get plenty of memory and storage too (6 and 128 gigs respectively). No headphone jack or microSD card slot, though.

845 v 855 is not leagues away. 845 is just fine.

At least they price it right. It's almost as cheap as Oneplus 6T,a great deal anyway :D

Agreed. While I think the OP6T is a decent enough smartphone, I also think that the Nokia 9 Pureview is better than the OP6T.

The 6T will be the better device than something that needs a gimmick to stand out.

The five lense set up has proven not to be a "gimmick". Early reviews have proved as much. The N9PV crushes the OP6T in photography.

That's your OPINION. That's not a fact.

A bunch of useless freebies, I'll pass. I don't think I'll be copping this jawn. I ended up getting the 7.1 instead but it's nice to know that the Pureview is even cheaper although with a catch.

Going to Best Buy tomorrow to get some hands on time and I cannot wait.

I'll be doing the same once I get off work. I cannot wait.

Zero in stock at Best Buy unfortunately until after the sales promotion is over or by a slim chance at the end of the week. I'll have to rely on some of my favorite unbiased tech reviewers for all the nitty gritty on things.

Yeah, I was disappointed not to see one there myself. Definitely will check out some unbiased reviews. Early hands on have been mostly positive.

These deals are great, and the freebies are far from "useless", as many will find use for them. It's great to see these offers for the Nokia 9 Pureview being offered to entice prospective buyers here in the U. S., where some claimed that HMD would bypass. The AT&T is pretty good, and even though the N9PV isn't universally unlocked to work on all carriers, it does support the future proof GSM networks, which is the wrold standard. I was going to cop that OnePlus 6T jawn first, as it's available right now, but I'll be preordering the Nokia 9 Pureview instead, which is the better smartphone, IMO. I'll pick up the OP6T sometime after.

Went to best buy, and funny enough I was not the only person interested in the phone. However they Didn't have a unit on display yet. So I'll wait.

I'm not going to dig myself into a salt pit like some people are doing just because they are bothered by others opinions. I don't have any use for the "freebies" so they are useless to me. I'm not going to go the strawman route with bringing up network compatibility when it has nothing to do with the subject.

Some people are claiming to not dig themselves into a salt pit when their comment clearly proves otherwise. They are triggered by my comment and opinions on this article for some reason, especially because I pointed out the fact that they don't speak for everyone concerning the gift items that come along with the N9PV, and the facts I posted about network compatibility.

As expected my comment has indeed triggered the usual detractors. They are so threatened by what I say that they can't even enjoy the device that they continue to champion day in and out. They are trapped in the salt pit that they dug themselves into. I only said that the Pureview is a jawn that I don't plan on copping.

Once again, the usual salt miner has been triggered by my comment. They are so threatened by me posting facts they can’t even enjoy the device that they claim to own. They are trapped beneath the salty seas of despair because of me. I only posted why the Nokia 9 Pureview was the jawn that I’m copping, and one of the reasons is because it’s GSM unlocked, which is the world standard.
