Samsung Canada says Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders are ‘outstanding’



The Galaxy Note 7 can now be pre-ordered in several markets across the globe and we’ve already heard that pre-order performance has been stellar in Samsung’s home base of South Korea. That also appears to be the case elsewhere. Pre-orders for the new handset are open in Canada where it will be released on August 19th. It’s available from Bell, Telus, Rogers, Videotron, Koodo, and Eastlink. Samsung Canada has termed the Galaxy Note 7′s pre-order performance as “outstanding.”

This, despite the fact that the Galaxy Note 7 is pricey in Canada. Customers who want to buy it outright will have to pay up to $1049.99, though it can be hand for as little as $0 down on a contract with one of the carriers mentioned above. The freebies on offer are likely a catalyst for the impressive pre-order numbers. Mark Childs, the chief media officer at Samsung Canada, told MobileSyrup that “pre-orders are outstanding” for the Galaxy Note 7 and that the company is seeing the most demand for the Blue Coral color. “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,” he added.
