Samsung Galaxy S9 Hits Canada In Titanium Gray, Lilac Purple

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus are now available for purchase in Canada, with Samsung's latest flagships debuting in Titanium Gray and Lilac Purple color options. It's presently unclear whether the Midnight Black and Coral Blue variants will eventually debut in the country, with the South Korean phone maker being yet to provide any details on its future plans for Canada. The two devices can be purchased from all major mobile service providers in the country: Telus, Rogers, Videotron, Bell, Eastling, Koodo Mobile, Fido, Freedom Mobile, TBayTel, Virgin Mobile, and SaskTel. Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, Canada Computers, and The Source are also retailing the Galaxy S9 lineup, with the handsets being priced at $960 CAD and $1,100 CAD.

The models sold in Canada are powered by the Snapdragon 845, Qualcomm's latest and most capable mobile chip to date which is also found inside the units that were released in the United States and will be featured in the devices set to hit China, as was the case with other Samsung-made flagships launched in recent years. Both the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus offered to Canadian consumers sport 64GB of internal flash storage expandable via a microSD card by up to 400GB. Previous reports suggested the phablets are actually capable of reading 2TB microSD cards but storage solutions with capacities north of 400GB still haven't been commercialized. Samsung already confirmed it's planning on releasing 128GB and 256GB variants of its new smartphones but has yet to share more details on the matter. Historically, such ultra-premium devices rarely made their way out of the company's home country and were only sold unlocked, though the Galaxy S8 lineup ended up being available with 128GB of flash memory in the U.S. last year.

The Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus released in approximately 70 markets today, and 40 more will be joining their availability list by the end of the month, Samsung confirmed. The new smartphones from the Seoul-based tech giant are expected to outsell every non-iPhone handset released over the course of this year and are hence widely considered to be the most important Android devices of 2018.
