For about 2 years now OP prices are leveling out to be similar to other flagships. The flagship killer identify is dead and buried yet they still get away with skimping on Water Resistant (Midrange gets it since Xperia M2 Aqua 2014 and these days atleast Resistant coatings).
this year will be SD865 and all phones look identical, then every company is asking for silly price where a lot will turn head to cheaper Chinese brand

Save our money for at least a year more then buy the new usable 5G phone model on a 5G equipped network.
That's right let them bleed with that Qualcomm monopoly money
Charge them 130 plus dollars for the 865 lol, they love to chant Qualcomm these loyalist..
They want to just bash mediatek they don't care if competition is better for us all so let them pay for it by Qualcomm robbery

You don't have to pay Qualcomm extra for that.
In other markets, Qualcomm ships with 5g modem disabled.
Yeah, recent info said that SD 865 is around $130 just for the chipset which is twice of the last SD 855 and then to use 5G you have to pay Qualcomm again for antennas to be able to utilize the mmWave. Don't expect some cheap flagship on this generation tbh.
Just SD865/5G adds $90 compared to SD855.
Then new version of other components.
No way it is less than $800.
mikiti, 11 Mar 2020hopefully they use imx689+imx586 combo for the pro versionThey aren't giving that combo at 800 dollars.
More likely it will be IMX 686 coupled with other smaller sensors.
