Galaxy Note 8 LTE now available in Canada

Canadian carriers TELUS, Rogers and Bell send word they've today launched the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 with 4G LTE data connectivity. The Note 8 sells for C$579 outright on TELUS — on-contract deals are also available from the carrier's website. Rogers has it for C$499 off-contract, and Bell offers it on a three-year plan for C$349.99 up-front or C$549.95 outright.

The Note 8 is the smaller of Samsung's two Galaxy Note tablets, with an 8-inch 1280x800 resolution display, a 1.6GHz quad-core Exynos CPU and 2GB of RAM. There's also 16GB of storage, microSD expandability and a 5-megapixel rear camera. Naturally, Samsung's S Pen support is included, with a dockable stylus fitting the device's right side.

  • Will this version have phone capabilities? Posted via Android Central App
  • There's no voice ability with this model. It may or may not be possible in the future. I haven't heard of anyone getting the AT&T version to work with voice yet. Some curious specs when I checked them out.
    Specs under "LTE".
    Telus shows both the AWS 1700/2100 Band 4 and the 2600 Band 7.
    Rogers only shows the AWS 1700/2100 Band 4.
    Bell doesn't show any specific Bands and just says compatible. This is weird because Rogers is using Band 7 2600 and Bell also has the ability to use Band 7. If you are buying one of these I would check the packaging to be sure or frequencies.
