It's already been confirmed Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note II in Canada on October 30. However, the Canadian carriers did not unveil any details on the phone's pricing options.
Fortunately, the phone is now listed at Best Buy
listed and is now available for pre-order from either Rogers, TELUS or Bell.
Customers can purchase the Galaxy Note II for as low as $150 CAD with a new three-year agreement from Bell and TELUS. Rogers
Galaxy Note II is more expensive, so customers will have to come up with $250 CAD on a three-year term.
Although there's no word on the no-term price, word is that customers will be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note II for around $650 - $750 CAD upfront.
Samsung's new Android flagship smartphone will be shipped with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system out of the box, unlike the Galaxy S III which is still stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich.
Anyway, the phone's selling point is the huge 5.5-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels), and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating for extra protection.
Aside from the large display, the Galaxy Note II
is arguably the most powerful smartphone launched by Samsung, as the device comes equipped with a 1.6 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 Quad processor built on ARM's Cortex-A9 architecture.
The superphone packs the same module camera as the Galaxy S III, an 8-megapixel photo snapper with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (video recording).
It comes with support for LTE, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR, dual-band Wi-Fi and HSDPA (21Mbps).
Samsung Galaxy Note II is powered by a high-capacity 3100 mAh Li-Ion battery, which should provide users with up to 980 hours of standby time or up to 35 hours of talk time.
