The whole 'This is Not Nokia' BS is Nerd Culture's own 'Russian Collusion' crap. You can literally make fewer than five clicks after a Google search to disprove the haters.
Anonymous, 20 May 2017*Downsampling is not DownscalingYou got there in the end, I see.
And your point is exactly ?.
[deleted post]You seem pretty vocal in this thread, care to back-up any of these claims and accusations you have been making ?.
[deleted post]Which guy's post was deleted? We all know that's just a lousy brand name now like Motorola which is now just the shadow of itself since Lenovo went in charge, except the nostalgic Nokia fans in denial.
so what if it is not Nokia it has same Nokia staff and the phones checked by representative of real Nokia
I hope there is a plus version also with around 6" screen size. And the price needs to be reasonable.
fruitcake, 20 May 2017Nearly everyone were happy that the Nokia name was on its way back,but still no phone released... moreBecause it is ONLY THE NAME, on its way back, this isn't Nokia, just a lil jumped up company, using Nokia's name, why anyone would gamble here it beggars belief, if your going to compromise with something new and untried and untested save some money and buy Chinese, better quality and at least they have some experience in making phones, where these people just using the Nokia name have not, and you will save a lot of money for a better phone. Remember the saying "This ain',t Nokia". lol.
I dont think Nokia would make a Top flagship smartphone with 5.3inch screen in 2017 when 5.5 is now the standard display size. but if they do, that would be quite suprising.
TechLover1, 20 May 2017Looking forward for (the re-emerged) Nokia with the flagship model, 8/9. It will be interestin... moreas the other guy said, this aint the real original Nokia, just a dollar grabbin kickstart callin themselves Nokia, Good ol Nokia sadly is dead an burried. Guess if people can be fooled into thinkin this is really, actuall Nokia, this might work, but, no reason you or I shouldn't churn out a phone from our backyard shed and just call it Nokia, the public might ..buy..that as well, pun intended, anyway, good luck to Nok, no wait, can't really call them Nokia, but good luck to whoever this is, just usin the Nokia name as tho they were really Nokia ti earn some bucks.
Nope. Just nope. Add all the hardware you want but Nokia with Lagdroid is blasphemy. (Symbian fan here, just bought 808 and.. just AND!)

Anonymous, 20 May 2017LG still has to come up with their S835 version of their G6. With no words or updates on that,... moreV30 will likely get the SD835 for them.
I like this Nokia 9 so far. A 5.3" is right up where I feel an ideal screen size should be.
And for folks who think HMD is pretending they are Nokia, just imagine Jon Snow not being a Stark by blood. To me, HMD still carries the Nokian DNA. They are related to Nokia when they in their heyday the same way the current Apple Inc is an offspring to NeXT.

4GB RAM & 64 GB ROM alone already show us that Nokia is as GREEDY as crApple when pricing their products.
At US$700, I, at least, want a phone with 128GB ROM, 6GB RAM, at least 5.5" QHD display, dual camera which could live up to Nokia's name, Good DAC & stereo speakers which could rival LG V20, at least.
With NONE of those (except camera & DAC confimed, the hardware & software could be changed & improved in the final version), I hardly believed any SANE person will buy this "overpriced ambitious" Nokia flagship over the already established branded smartphones.
As the matter of fact, the NEW Nokia is no more than another "kickstart" company which buy the rights to use & slap "NOKIA" brand in their products.

And to all those moaning about the quality of the 'sample' pictures, please apply some common sense and read the part in the article that hints that they (the pictures) have been 'down-sampled' (possibly with additional software), so are not original full quality pictures from the camera sensor, and were not posted as such.
