Seems like Singtel also not carry it.
Went to Singtel shop today and overheard someone asking the staff and they don't carry it
On the carrier level, only M1 sells the Nokia 8. SingTel and StarHub donít seem to be interested.

If the price is competitive, will still have their supporters.

Nokia lai liao... but the price is....
Yes price is a little high to capture the market.
Saw this model in Hong Kong, is about S$200 cheaper.

Has to see how it goes and after sales support.

But most consumers might trust nokia more than oneplus... and oneplus 5 lacks micro sd and the better camera(?) Of the 8
Software implementation China brand cannot make it la.
Also, has to compare number of 4G/3G band coverage. China brand usually just a few and not even at cat 6 LTE,

Over the time, I noticed that M1 is more willing to bring in new phone brands than the other two telcos.

For example, M1 brought in brands such as Sharp, TP-Link phones which are relatively unknown to ordinary consumers in Singapore. Singtel and StarHub usually only bring in brands that are well-known by consumers in Singapore.

Challenger and Courts should have it since they are selling it, but not confirmed

Not really. Only for the older gens. Nokia is still made by Foxconn...
Camera is really subjective, nowadays hp camera mostly is either Sony or Samsung.

I guess its more of the size (5.3") compared to a 5.5

Hi Challenge Bugis has a display set, went to molest it. First impression: zippy, great build quality, double tap to wake is there, suitable size for my hands, and nostalgic lah, of course, to hold a Nokia again in my grasp.

$769 is a decent price IMO, not too high.
