Where to buy the Galaxy S8 in Canada

The Galaxy S8 will be available in Canada on April 21, and because it's one of the most anticipated devices of the year, it will be widely available across the country.

The phone comes in two sizes, the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 and the 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+, with about $80 difference between them.

Buy the Galaxy S8 from Samsung

Samsung is selling both models of the Galaxy S8 directly from its website and in its Samsung Experience stores. The Galaxy S8 itself will be available outright for $1035, while the larger Galaxy S8+ will go for $1115. These are the full retail unsubsidized prices, and will come with a free Gear VR + controller bundle if pre-ordered before April 20.

The phones are available in Midnight Black or Orchid Grey.

Buy the Galaxy S8 from Virgin Mobile

The Galaxy S8 on Virgin Mobile goes for a bit more than the other carriers because it is less subsidized; it is $489.99 on a Platinum plan, and $1034.95 outright. The Galaxy S8+ is nowhere in sight on Virgin's webpage at this point. The GS8 comes with a Gear VR and controller, too.

  • Are the updates still being pushed by Canadian carriers? Or direct from Samsung?
  • carriers still hold the balls of samsung
  • Hopefully Costco will sell them unlocked like they did the Note 7.
  • Looks like we'll continue to use our S7, see little reason to upgrade.
  • Do we know which soc Canada gets this year? S7 it as exynos and note 7 was Qualcomm
  • The Canadian version of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will have the Snapdragon 835 and international variant will get a Exynos processor
  • I understood the Canadian market to be considered International. I also thought the Qualcomm licensing issue was only in the US?
  • Rogers lists the processor as a Qualcomm chip so i assume all carriers in Canada will be the same. Guess we will see if this is an unfortunate decision or not but with Samsung involved in the design of the Qualcomm chip, hopefully there are very few and slight differences in real world performance.
  • Definitely Qualcomm.
  • My note 7 with the snapdragon performed flawlessly. Not too worried
  • I think you're all wrong. It won't be the snapdragon 835... It's only for the US market. This is well documented. What I want to know is... I preordered, I am in Canada 🍁 is it going to be unlocked or is it going to be loaded with carrier bloat once I insert my sim card from fido?
  • >It's listed on Rogers site as Qualcomm
  • It is 100% Snapdragon in Canada.
  • Historically, even if you purchased the device from a Samsung retail store, they only sold it tied to carriers in the region.
  • Do people still sign 2 year contracts when buying phones?!?!111
  • In the UK, I would guess that buying a phone on 2 year contract is the most common option.
  • Canada had 3 year contracts at one point...no?
  • Did at one point but for the most part 3 years is extinct in Canada.
  • Yeah, the three-year contracts were dumped when stupid people complained because they didn't see how subsidizing works.
  • It's not always detrimental. With Freedom Mobile it's essentially 0% financing for a phone that has the lowest upfront cost in Canada. Please tell me what the downside of that is.
  • you can reserve on Fido, S8 - 489$ on the plus20 plan or 589$ on the plus15 comes with the Gear VR!
  • August 17 from Videotron?
  • Thought I'd toss it out there that most Canadian carriers are advertising you can receive the phone as early as April 17th only with a pre-order. But not sure that applies to in-store pickup like myself.
  • Anyone know where there are domos to look at in the Montreal area I can't find any on display
  • i think i saw it on samsungs website showing carrier stores downtown (there was a Bell store on ste cath i think)
  • Videotron Sainte-Catherine has one.
  • I'll check out the site thanks, I went to several locations downtown and still yet to find any on display
  • Eaton Centre has tons
  • Eaton center in Montreal?
  • For the low low price of 2000 dollars.....
  • Seems like the usual places this year.
