The device that many are calling the ‘best big phone’ on the market, the newly-released Samsung Galaxy Note 7, is now available in Canada at a wide range of retailers and carriers.
The 5.7-inch, iris-scanner toting handset is being stocked by Bell, Telus, Rogers, Wind, Eastlink, Videotron, Eastlink, SaskTel, and Koodo. The majority of carriers are selling the device at around $550 on a two-year plan, though the smartphone’s price dips as low as $0 at Eastlink. Outright, it costs $1049.99.
Yesterday, the company hinted that stock might be limited due to the strong demand for pre-orders.
“Over the coming weeks, we’ll work with our valued carrier and retail partners to provide wide-reaching national retail availability,” stated a Samsung representative.
Update – August 24: MTS has officially released the Galaxy Note 7. The price is similar to competing carriers in Canada with the 2-year term at $549.99 and $1049.99 outright. The Manitoba-based carrier is only stocking the black version.
