http://consumer.hu... moreBTW Dvid, when you say "the mall" do you mean physical space or vmall.my? You can actually buy right now?
For what will likely be the first place to go on sale online: https://www.vmall.my/huawei-nova-2i
For those who want the official site link (currently same as vmall): http://consumer.huawei.com/my/phones/nova2i/

I think this is the first phone that I felt I HAD to wait for. I don't want to spend >$600 on a phone - I came from a Nexus 5X (which died in bootloop hell), and am using a kinda crappy ASUS Zenfone Laser 2 while trying to find a proper replacement. The frustration is real. But as anxious as I am to upgrade, being able to spend just over $300 ($307 at current exchange rates) for a phone this nice is worth the wait. I just hope it actually goes on sale sooner than later. I'm in Japan, so buying from VMall in Malaysia is totally fine with me.

so your Samsung is a follower too.

Samsung and the other are just followers.
I very much like the design and the high screen to body ratio. The higher screen to body ratio the smaller the bezels become. This is a midrange phone that has good chipset but the CPU AND THE GPU is not mentioned at the moment. I think they would add it later when the phone is ready for the market. Now no radio, no fast charging, no 24-bit/192kHz play for the 3.5 phone phone jack, no wma and wmv player not even DTS mode sound. No IR blaster and no touch glass protection. If this is true of the specs when the final specs come then I think this phone's price should be tagged at around $280 -$300 on the market. Nothing more than that.
why do i sense that every other phones of this year will have similarities of design to the galaxy S8, truly a trend setter samsung.
Not bad for its segment. But yes, the price will be crucial (as usual, for the respective individual segments). So hopefully it will be affordable.
Phone looks strange stats looks strange wonder about price.
Back side looks like railway traffic lights :-(
I just hope this won't be like the other phones with practically entry level specs but charging for midrange price just because of the bezel-less design (LG Q6 & Vivo V7+).
