Hitec Mobile is selling it @ $685 with 1 year local warranty, but not sure if got Google Play Store and what colour.

Tempted to get this since it's cheaper than the official pricing by almost $100 ($84 to be exact).

This is a pure stock experience right? How does it compare to pixel phone and andriod one devices like MI A1 in term of software update?

Not easy, very competitive now. They used to be the first but failed to evolve when IOS, Android come out.
That's true. In the past, Nokia was like the leader. But now

Where selling? Got Play Store? I saw some cheap versions of Nokia 6, but all China exports, no Play Store. Wonder if it's the same for Nokia 8.

Nope. Just that the G4 (after a successful G3) had boot loops

New LG models still have the bootloop problem?

Yeah, they do take a risk in bringing in more exclusive models as well.. like the LG Q6 - which fits well into a mid range line up .. compared to SingTel and Starhub’s strategy of overly high end and overly budget - say Samsung J7?

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.
