I have seen this article. I am only looking at the Pro variant and from this article it noted that the code number denotes an entry level phone. From a report I have read elsewhere which unfortunately I cannot recall from where, it was stated that there will be an 8T but not the Pro which actually quoted Carl’s statement to this effect.

Therein lies my predicament. *sigh*.

Ya as per TOMEI-R mentioned, there will be a Pro variant to go along with 8T. I'm ok with just 8T but because only single flagship exist, they had to put every best part they have in it yet priced it fair, don't think they will do that. Instead had the same Pro and non Pro, maintain Pro at the top while fit in the non Pro close to Nord would make much more sense marketing wise.

The official MY set ones tend to be a bit pricey, even during sale you'd probably get RM200-RM300 off at best. The parallel imported sets are cheaper, but best buy them from a reputable seller with good feedback for peace of mind.

Yes, pretty much. Lots of people go the imported route to save some $$$, plus the service provided by the official distributor is not that great anyway..

Confirmed that there will be a 8T and 8T Pro series, unless they want to name it differently. But then again, utilizing the 865T would mean increase in pricing again.  sweat.gif

I hope and fervently wish you are right. But from the said article that I read which quoted Carl Pei, there’s no TPro for their phone this year.

This begs one question be to asked of you then. Why are you so sure there is? You know something that most of us don’t?!

Thanks for your input. With it however, I am still at square one of my dilemma.
