If you’re in Canada and are longing after a Samsung Galaxy S III, then you probably already know that the latest leaks and rumors on the matter point to June 20 as being the date when Samsung’s newest flagship smartphone will reach a carrier near you.
But if you were wondering just how much you’ll need to pay for the honor of owning a brand new Galaxy S III in Canada, here’s something to clear that up too.
Best Buy was kind enough to put up some pricing details for the Galaxy S III, before (we assume) realizing what it had done and pulling them. Fret not, though, for all the relevant info has been publicized by MobileSyrup, alongside a screenshot as proof.
So, expect the Samsung Galaxy S III to cost $149.99 with a new Rogers three-year contract, $10 more than that (with the same contract term) at Telus and Virgin, and $169.99 at SaskTel.
The no-contract pricing will be around $649.99, and unfortunately the only carrier missing from this list is Bell. Since only a cash deposit was listed as required for a pre-order with Bell, we don’t yet know how it will price Samsung’s latest and greatest. But judging from past cases, Bell’s price should be identical to that seen at Virgin Mobile.
Both white and blue versions will be out in Canada. Three weeks remaining, people.
