Samsung has announced the availability of the Galaxy Note Edge in Canada. The device, which was spotted up for pre-order on Best Buy Canada website a couple of days ago, is priced at CA$400 on-contract, or CA$900 outright, and will go on sale in the country on February 18. Both Rogers and Bell will sell the device, which will be available in Charcoal Black.
"The Galaxy Note Edge is one of our most innovative and unique smartphone designs to date, which once again demonstrates that we are listening and responding to our consumers," said Paul Brannen, Executive Vice President, Mobile Solutions, Samsung Canada.
