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.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
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.
