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