Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders are "outstanding" in Canada, blue version in high demand

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 pre-orders are
Not long after hearing that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 attracted a record-breaking number of pre-orders in South Korea, we're now learning that the new smartphone is also extremely well received in Canada - where it's going to hit shelves starting August 19 (just like in the US).

According to Mobile Syrup, Samsung Canada CMO Mark Childs is thrilled about the overwhelming response that the Note 7 is receiving, saying that “pre-orders are outstanding” (in Canada, of course). Mark Childs also mentioned that there's "significant demand" for the Blue Coral variant of the new Galaxy Note. Right now, folks in Canada can pre-order the Note 7 from Bell, Rogers, Telus, Wind, Videotron, Koodo, and Eastlink, for anywhere between $0 on contract, and $1049.99 Canadian dollars outright.

It looks like the Note 7 won't have a gold version in Canada, and the same thing is expected to happen in the US. This means that, besides blue, US and Canadian customers will be able to get the handset only in Black Onyx, or Silver Titanium.

From what we've seen thus far, the Note 7 appears to be the best Galaxy Note smartphone to date, so it makes sense for pre-orders to be outstanding. If you haven't done it already, check out our Galaxy Note 7 hands-on for a closer look at the new device.

We're all meant to want to embrace the Next Big Thing. In late 2004 that was, for me, the Palm Treo 650; arguably a progenitor of the smartphone as we know it today. Glitzy airport ads for the Treo were everywhere in late '04. I happily bought-in to the smartphone phenomena. I have every phone that I bought going back to my first Samsung clamshell of May 2000. All of my 'treasures' of yesteryear still are in mostly pristine working condition. I fondly wish that a network dedicated to old devices were in place to allow for some quaint conversations with old devices; a symptom of my age I believe.

Best is not always subjective. There are thing where best isn't up for debate.

It's funny how they just have to release a new colour and people fall over themselves to buy it. Some people are so incredibly shallow.

Makes no sense when in actual reality nobody will really appreciate the color or notice it when it is gonna end up in a case. Unlike me who hates anything case apart from my holster. That's one of the minor reasons I won't stop using a BlackBerry.

The galaxy note 7 is clearly killing it in the android world (sales wise) but all this talk of breaking records are just pure exaggerations. I mean isn't 200,000 pre-orders for korea rather small when the iphones run into millions in a few hours in the US? Considering korea is their main stay? At least when it comes to sales, the iphones destroys the galaxys and then some, but that not withstanding, the galaxies are far better phones as compared the locked down boring ios

Maybe. All of June's chatter was as to how 5 million Note 7s were expected to be built in July through August. If Internet buzz is anything to go by Samsung may see some 3 or 4 million Note 7s go out-the-door by the end of this month. Again, if Internet buzz is anything to go by I believe that supply may not be able to keep up with demand. I only had hoped to see the Note 7 released as to tie-in to The Olympics; that's the only miscue I perceive as it pertains to the Note 7's marketing right now. I'm going on vacation shortly. In July, I believed that I'd have a Note 7 by now. If Verizon ships early, my daughter will overnight the device to me. If it arrives on the 18th or 19th my daughter said she'll bring it with her when she flies out to meet me on the 20th. I realize that my concerns are petty.

First off, if I have a carrier and one year pre-order for a top teir devic eis only 100,000 and next years model is 200,000, it still broke a previous record. YOU DON"T GET TO DECIDE WHAT IS CONSIDERED A RECORD OR NOT. CASE CLOASED! If I cycle one day for 100 miles which I do often, and another day I do just 110 miles, I still broke my own record. You don't get to decide how important it is to me, just because it's not important to you.

"At least when it comes to sales, the iphones destroys the galaxys and then some" First, let's realize how nonsensical this comparison is to begin with because Samsung themselves simply offer more choice and there is insane competition within the Android platform from other manufacturers (increasingly Chinese), while the iPhones have none within iOS (lock in helps here). But even with that being said, your claim is outdated since Kantar just revealed that the S7 models sold close to the 6S quantities (less than 10% difference iirc). That Excludes the other Galaxy top model, the Note.

This is not a fair comparison. The Note 3 starting price is at least $849 in most countries. Some carriers in the US are charging $879 for it. The iPhone 6s starts at just $649 and 6s Plus at $749. Therefore a more fair comparison would be to compare sales of 6s Plus 64GB model ($849) with the Galaxy Note 7, and I believe in this comparison the Galaxy Note 7 will win!

That is false. The Note and S, combine for roughly 1/3rd of Samsung phones sales. If you combine the sells of all "Galaxy" branded handsets Samsung sells, they combined outsell the iPhone. You should go to GSMarena and look at all the Galaxy models that have been sold since the first S. You will see the Galaxy lineup contains at least 30+ models. You think the single iPhone can outsell all of them combined? Samsung sells 300M phones per year since 2011 or so. The vast majority are Galaxy branded.

I went against 'type' in pre-ordering Blue Coral. I have a Note 4 in a Seidio case with a blue back plate that informed my selection. Verizon listed the color on its website and as I finalized my order at 12:10 AM on the 3rd I expect to receive a Blue Coral Note 7; that being stated I'll have to wait and see.

I ordered the coral blue Note 7 and a clear case by Spigen. I'm hoping I don't hve to wait until the 19th actually.. I hope it ships early

I had a text conversation/chat with a Verizon representative five days ago. This rep let it slip that the Note 7 "could arrive sooner"; those exact words. Yet, I'm not allowing my hopes to get too high. I hope that you will get yours sooner rather than later.

It has happened in the past for those that preordered Samsung phones, sometimes almost a week before the actual release date.

I received my Droid Bionic and Note 4 two and three days early, respectively. What you've stated is something to consider for sure.

Glad I got Blue Coral. I may have a smidgen of remorse that the black is amazing. But no matter how much I look at the Blue, it never looses it's wow factor.

That color combo, is so sexy bro. I'm ready, got 2 cases, and a 128 gig Samsung pro plus sd card. I'm gonna order the free one thru Samsung promotions, and keep it or sell it.

Probably for the best. They say that 256gb could take up to 10 weeks to deliver. Better to get settled with a card now. And yea, I see were not the only ones crazy bout that color scheme. BOSS.
