Smart Displays are the latest form factor to bring the Google Assistant into people's homes, and since earlier this year, the Lenovo Smart Display has been doing just that for folks in the United States. Our friends in Canada have yet to join in on the Smart Display love, but thanks to a Best Buy listing, it would appear that that's soon changing.

If you head to Best Buy Canada's website right now, you can pre-order the JBL Link View Smart Display for $349.99. The release date is listed as November 1, 2018, and if you use promo code SHPREORDER, you can save 10% at checkout.

A quick search on Best Buy's site also shows the 8-inch Lenovo Smart Display (opens in new tab), and while its product page wasn't live as of a few days ago, it can now also be pre-ordered for $259.99 with a release date of November 1.

What does all this mean?

The Google Pixel 3 is also launching in Canada on November 1, so it's likely we'll get a proper announcement either then or slightly ahead of time confirming that Smart Displays are finally ready for the Canadian market.

Updated October 22, 2018: Updated this article to reflect that the Lenovo Smart Display is also available for pre-order.

  • The link to order the Lenovo smart display is now working. I just placed an order and you can save 10% and get a free mini.
  • Cannot ship to Quebec, can't preorder in Quebec... fine then!
  • Oh noo my friends in Canada have actually been waiting for the Lenovo Smart display. I even shipped one over as a gift. I'm really hoping it's only a matter of time till it gets there.
