    And the winner is…

    The Note 9. I mean Mate 9.

    Alleged Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro renders had been leaked -

    People should have waited, instead of "rushing in". Patience is a virtue. This phone looks identical to the Note 7, makes you wonder, doesn't it?

    I am raving about this phone specifically because we all know the Note 7 was "the most beautiful phone that ever was". Well now, we have a possible identical "replica", yet some of the specs simply blow away all competition bar none! Insane price tag of $1300 to prove it.
    (The website I linked was used to give us an impression of what to expect. By all means check out some of the more established sites, such as gsmarena for more substantial information)
    To be revealed on November 3rd.

    I want it! Who's with me?
    Who are we? Huawei.

    (World's 3rd largest Cellphone Manufacturer. Who knew, right?)

    LOL yeah, $1300 Huawei....

    No offense but this is like the mobile equivalent of the Volkswagen Phaeton (largest carmaker in the world currently, who knew), look how well that one turned out. On the other hand, yay collectibles! No one's ever gonna buy it that it's bound to be -actually- rare. The exclusivity alone is worth it.

    Yet no one says "no stylus no dice" and rushes out to get the V20, Pixel, iPhone, etc, etc.
    This is a Note 7esque Phone, and we are on the Note 7 forum. Strange.

    I already don't like how expensive phones are and that tag is just too much for me. Not saying it won't be good.. I can't comment till I read a review or a few people who got to play with it.

    $1300.

    I think the smartphone world has gone crazy. When it comes down to it, we're talking about phones here.

    I also think consumers in the USA don't really understand that by buying a phone at these prices (although carrier subsidized), they're essentially saying that's what the market is willing to pay.

    Heck I could even stomach the price of the Note 7 since I really really liked that phone. Pixel XL and all these other 'premium in price only' wannabes need to stay on the bench.

    Ridiculous.

    I have the Mate 8 (was a LOT cheaper) and it's fantastic. Other than not having an s pen, it's an amazing device.

    I could be SO wrong here, but I thought I read an article a while back stating that there were different versions, the 4g of ram and the 6g of ram along with combinations of 32, 64 and 128g sized phones. I assumed the 1300 tag was most likely for the biggest. If that's true, I'll be getting a little guy (even though it looks like the rose gold won't be available in the cheapies, but that was a rumor so far....)

    If it really does come down to 1300 bucks, I can't believe a lot of US users will be willing to try this. I mean, that IS the reason I tried the mate 8 in the first place, it was roughly 400 bucks (and, in my small opinion, equal to the Note 7).

    The only true replacement for the Note 7 will be the next Samsung Note. It's not about the form factor alone, and that phone doesn't look as nice as the Note 7 anyway. Price is ridiculous too.

    I am actually happy with the Note5 and will be even happier to receive my 64gig which is on backorder.
    I will be content with this phone. I am seeing with using the 32gig how responsive and snappy it is. It has been
    EXCELLENT. With it being out of stock its popularity has increased and due to the demise of the Note7. But it shouldn't be dissed because it is a really good phone

    Phones quit being a phone right when I was selling them at RadioShack, in 2008 when the iPhone and palm were battling it out with blackberry and people could suddenly watch porn anywhere on a brick that was mostly screen. Phones just play music in 10 tones and talk to people while these 1300$ trinkets are PDAs, a dead but apt term, and the mate seems to have all the cutting edge PDA bells and whistles. Except a pen and dice apparently, plus the 1080p LCD, no waterproofing, no Samsung pay, and no wireless charging leaves a bit to desired compared to the note... I always hope high prices will result in high R&D budgets though, and that someone has the money to buy them

    Is this really going to be 1300?? Way too much for any phone, even more than the iPhone 7 Plus 256gb! Not saying Huawei. is a bad brand, but it isn't one of the flagship brands. For a lower end name company LOL. This phone should be priced at no more than $800. Huawei isn't a high end brand name. This would be like taking a 2015 Mustang GT and putting a $80,000 price tag on it. Plus it's hard to find cases and such for Huawei.

    When you think of the price of this you could buy the S8 Edge, AND also purchase a Tab S3 8.0 and likely will come to the same price or maybe slightly lower.
