AhmedSLL, 18 Jun 2020Expandable storage and a headphone jack is more important than a flagship soc and a better cam... moreI agree, 600 euros is waaaaay too high. But where are you seeing phones with this chipset for $200? Its looking like the ballpark for this device is going to be somewhere between $400-500. Thats where the Moto Edge 5G is, thats where the OP Nord is, thats likely just above where the Pixel 4A will be (with worse specs no less).
Regarding the chipset: If it has decent UFS storage, the only real place the performance difference between this and an 8 series chipset will be visible is benchmarks. If you specifically want a phone for gaming, get a flagship phone. Otherwise the 765 will do just fine. In most low thread count applications it will perform just like an 855, which still performs great.
silbier.hell, 22 Jun 2020Well... Xperia 1ii laughing.. Yes I agree, majority of OEM ditch 3.5mm jack. But some OEM migh... moreI'm no doctor strange, I simply know that companies have one single purpose, profits. It's more profitable to take away the headphone jack and force people (or at least encourage them) to buy wireless earphones, usually from the same company. If apple were the first to have fast charging, you wouldn't see a single phone coming with a fast charger included in the box, a decision most companies regret deeply, Samsung have even tried to fix it by including fast chargers that are lower in speed than the supported one, to make people buy the faster charger, but they failed because their chinese competitors already had superior fast charging technology and they used it as one of they're main selling points. That is why you'll never see a wireless charger included in the box in the future (or at least a fast wireless charger), they won't do the same mistake twice. Once you understand how these companies think, all they're moves become predictable, and in an era where consumers opinions doesn't matter much, since we have reviewers and "influencers" and AI, companies will do whatever suits them. And by the way, how many famous reviewers you know are still reviewing wired headphones (and I'm talking about good quality wired headphones targeting average users and not some niche product for gamers or studio recording)

Anonymous, 17 Jun 2020Expandable storage and a headphone jack. Expandable storage and a headphone jack is more important than a flagship soc and a better camera? I hate the fact that companies are dropping off the 3.5 mm jack, and I understand it's importance, but let's just be reasonable here, it's gone, and eventually it's going to disappear sooner or later, even nokia will follow, it sucks but it's happening anyway.
And one thing I can't understand, with the storage options we get these days, why would I put an sd card that would alter the performance of my device, really I hope someone give me an explanation.
Really, either they are fanatics or 'extremely naive' type-of-person which likely to buy this POS.
600 euro for basically 200$ mid-range smartphone?
1st gen Nokia 8 would look like 'bang-for-buck', Samaritan phone made by Nokia by now.
Either you buy flagship, flagship killer, OR last-year flagship, would 600 euro price tag justified.
Even Redmi Note 8 pro which have similar performance but 1/3 the price is more than enough to handle daily task (Instagram, browsing, Whatsapp, video calling, etc)
Carol, 17 Jun 2020Should it do french fries too?Of course. Otherwise Xiaomi will do it.
I saw on a swedish provider, Nokia 8.3 is coming 5 september, are hmd mad, hoe long we have to wait for this phone, is again more than 2 months
Lol 4 months have passed, they wanna compete with the spectacular time-to-market of Sony.
AhmedSLL, 17 Jun 2020In what way, what world, is this better than tje the OP 8. Expandable storage and a headphone jack.
Only a placeholder. It has been there for weeks now. Still nothing new about availability of this phone.
It's up for pre-order for months already here in The Netherlands.
Carol, 17 Jun 2020Should it do french fries too?ha ha.. so great a comment
600 euros for a mid-range phone without a single telephoto camera and crappy 2Mp sensors. Yeah, keep them taking dust at the stands and facilities.
OwnFix3, 17 Jun 2020Do people like those back design? The 6.2 and 7.2 looked so good compared to this.I actually find this design to be better
