Note 7 pre-orders generate ‘huge response,’ says Samsung Canada

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Note 7 last week and stated the phone will be available in Canada on August 19th.

The 5.7-inch Marshmallow-powered Android will be launch with most Canadians carriers, including Bell, Telus, Rogers, Wind, Eastlink, Videotron, Koodo, for $1049.99 without a term and as low as $0 on contract.

Pre-orders are currently live and most Canadian carriers are offering bonuses tied to the purchase of a Note 7, which likely played a role in the phone reportedly pushing impressive pre-order numbers.

In an interview with MobileSyrup, Samsung Canada’s chief media officer Mark Childs stated, “pre-orders are outstanding,” specifically mentioning that there is “significant demand” for the Blue Coral iteration of the Note 7 in Canada. The phone is also available in Silver Titanium and Black Onyx.

“The overwhelming response has been positive in terms of reaction to the device by everybody from a review perspective, but also from Canadians. We are already seeing a huge response in the pre-orders that went live just after Unpacked and certainly surpassing our expectations as we head into the official launch next Friday,” continued Childs.
