On Tuesday, Apple debuted its new premium flagship iPhone X, a device created in honour of the iPhone’s ten-year anniversary.
Interested consumers will need to pay a steep $1,319 CAD price tag to buy the base 64GB model outright, which is more than the Samsung Note 8’s hefty $1,299 price. The device is also available in a 256GB variant for $1,529 CAD.
Pre-orders begin on October 27th, through Apple Town Squares and online at Apple.ca. The company will begin to sell units on November 3rd. It will be sold in Space Gray and Silver colour variants.
It’s expected that most carriers across Canada will stock the device — including Freedom Mobile, since the device is Band 66 compatible. Note that we’ll be continuously updating this post as we receive information from carriers.
So far, multiple carriers have stated only that they will stock “Apple’s latest products… including the new generation iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus” — conspicuously leaving out mention of the iPhone X, which is expected to be limited in stock.
Telus, Rogers, Bell, SaskTel, Koodo and Videotron have explicitly confirmed stocking the iPhone X, with Telus offering a page for pre-registration that will provide customers with an alert when the phone is ready to pre-order.
