The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 has been officially launched in Canada, and will be available on carriers Rogers, Telus, Bell, Mobilicity, Sasktel, WIND and Videotron, though Samsung Canada’s Facebook page says that in-store availability will initially be scarce until Samsung can send full supply of the 5.5-inch phablet to stores.
Rogers has priced the Note 2 at $199.99 on a 3-year contract and $649.99 on a month-t0-month plan, with device listed as available. Bell will take 6-8 days to deliver the Note 2, with pricing set at $199.95 on a 3-year contract and $729.95 outright. Mobilicity has decided to offer the phablet at only a no-contract price of $659.99, while other carriers list the Note 2 as coming soon.
The Galaxy Note 2 sports a 5.5-inch 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos processor, 2GB RAM, 8 MP rear camera, 1.9 MP front-facing camera, 16GB storage expandable via microSD slot, 3100 mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with software features that make use of the device’s S Pen stylus. Rogers, TELUS, Bell and SaskTel will be getting the LTE-enabled Galaxy Note 2, while WIND, Videotron, and Mobilicity customers will have to make do with the HSPA+ variant.
