samsung galaxy note 3 aa 47

Samsung fans in Canada are about to get a massive heaping of Sammy goodness sent your way! Starting on October 4th, Samsung will release the Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Gear, Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S3 Mini to Canada.

Following in November, Canadians will also have the opportunity to pick up the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear

The most exciting of all the Sammy devices heading your way is – without a doubt – the Note 3.

The Next Big Thing is almost here, and it will be available on quite a few networks: Bell, TELUS, Rogers, Mobilicity, MTS, SaskTel, Videotron, Eastlink and WIND Mobile. Unfortunately, we have yet to receive pricing details from any of the carriers.

So will all the networks get the Note 3 from day one? We know for sure that TELUS is getting the handset on October 4th, and we’d expect the same from some of the bigger carriers like Rogers and Bell. On the other hand, we wouldn’t be too surprised if the smaller providers don’t see the Note 3 until a bit later in the month.

For those interested in the Galaxy Note 3’s companion device, the Galaxy Gear, the smart watch will set you back $299. It’s also worth mentioning that if you bundle with the Note 3 between the 4th and 6th of October, you’ll get $100 off.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and Galaxy S3 Mini

If a budget-oriented handset with a smaller display is more your thing, you’ll want to turn your attention towards the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and S3 Mini. While neither device has been priced, we’d imagine both will be quite affordable.

The S3 Mini may even be offered free with contract, at least judging by AT&T’s $.99 pricing for the handset.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Last but not least, we have the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition. At the moment, we don’t have official pricing or a release date for the device, but we do know it will be arriving sometime in November.

    I’m more excited about the note 10.1,it should be a great update over the original.

    • Agus Budiyanto

      same here, need a good 10 inch Android tablet with expandable memory and S Pen… my Note 2 is still functioning properly so I don’t need to upgrade to Note 3 yet…

      • IanDickson

        So is mine, but I still wouldn’t mind a Note 3 with a little faster EVERYTHING. :-)

  • strangefruit

    The Note 3 has me all excited. Saving up ….

    • Jason Yuen

      Same here. I’ve been working extra hours for this phone. I just wish we could buy the LTE version unlocked and off contract.

      • I believe it’s possible to get it unlocked and off contract – it will just cost you quite a bit. Just look for the N9005.

      • Michel

        Go to Costco and take the Rogers one and unlocked it.
        This is what i will do.

  • beeeepppp

    but i havent seen any “pre-order samsung galaxy note 3” webpage or display on any of the mobile network websites.. -_____-

    • Dimitri

      Then I guess you are blind. LOL. Not really

      Rogers does. So does Telus. You just have to be a existing customer to get the reservation ( Rogers) and pre order from (Telus and Bell)

      I am #6 for the Jet black on Rogers reservation system.

      • beeeepppp

        lol when i typped in my comment there werent any preorder pages from any of the carrier websites..they just came sometime this week, except that useless bestbuy online advertisement (i tried preordering but they said “we cant do it yet” when the post was online for a month already!)

        • Dimitri

          Rogers opened the reservation to current Rogers wireless customers on Sept 17th. That day i reserved my Note 3 at 3:15 & i came as #6 for the Jet Black.

          On sept 16th Future shop & Best Buy both opened up their pre orders for the Note 3 in Classic White & Jet Black.

          • beeeepppp

            not really..i even went to the store to ask about the ad bestbuy has online and the person in charge of the mobile department told me that theyre not going to open preorders until november.. i even asked if i can do it that day and they said “no, sorry..i wish you could too”..

          • beeeepppp

            and as for rogers, obviously i cant reserve my phone there because im not a currently with rogers.. and the add only mentions about their reservation system which also doesnt have a preorder button on it so i can preorder the gnote3

      • beeeepppp

        and Ive been checking all websites since they started making rumours about the GNote3’s specks until the now including all canadian carriers’ websites EVERYDAY..soo im definitely know what im saying here, mr smarty pants

  • AMR

    what about the release date and price of the new edition of galaxy note 10.1? It is like a secret and no one has a clue for it! I have contacted Samsung Canada and they do not know as well!!!
