  1. i watched a youtube video on the unboxing of this device and saw many other components that come with it like the docks, the extra controllers, different cases and so on. I wondered whether all of those components come with the 900 euros price tag and if they’ll be available in nigeria. thanks. this is a great website by the way, beats gsmarena for me

    • No, It doesn’t come with the 900 euros price point. Those are additional accessories that ensure you leverage the full features of this smartphone. You don’t have to wait for its availability in Nigeria, global shopping websites such as AliExpress and Amazon would have all packages when available. And… Thanks for the kind words, we appreciate!
