The Samsung Galaxy Note line of phones has fast become one of Samsung’s most loved devices. The latest version, The Samsung Galaxy Note9, is shaping up to be the best Note device on record. We’ll have a full review soon.
Both the Samsung Galaxy Note9 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch were announced just a few weeks ago. Now, Samsung is announcing they are officially available in retail stores. With the Note9 starting at $999.99USD for the 128GB version and $1249.99USD for the 512GB version. The Watch starts at $329.99USD for the 42mm and $349.99USD for the 46mm. The LTE versions are $379.99USD and $399.99USD. Consumers can save up to $300 when they trade-in an eligible phone for a Galaxy Note9 on Samsung.com
For our Canadian reader’s pricing is a bit different and starts at $1299.99CAD for the 128GB version and $1629.99CAD for the 512GB version. Canadians who trade in their old phones will also receive a minimum of $200 off in addition to the trade-in value when you purchase the Galaxy Note9 through October 31, 2018.
The Galaxy Watch does not have pricing for Canada just yet but starting today, Canadians who pre-order before September 30, 2018, will also receive a bonus wireless charger duo with their purchase ($149.99CAD), so you can charge both the Galaxy Watch and your smartphone simultaneously.
