We’ve seen conflicting pricing for the Zenfone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) in Canada. We’ve seen a listing (holder only) on Staples.ca showing this model at a price of CAD 669. Now we have spotted a listing on Amazon.ca with a price of CAD 699. With the Staples.ca listing now taken down, we have to decide which price is accurate. We are going to suggest that Amazon is most likely to get pricing correct. This is what they do isn’t it? Making pricing mistakes would be very unusual for Amazon.
You can in fact place your order now, which is more like a pre order because the release date is questionable at this time.
So this is the Snapdragon 820 version which has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. If you’re wondering about the model packing the 256GB storage and Snapdragon 821, we have no idea when or if that is coming to Canada. From the benchmarks that we’ve seen, the improvements with the Snapdragon 821 are respectable, but they are not vastly superior to the Snapdragon 820 version of the Zenfone 3 Deluxe. There is no denying how nice 256GB storage would be, but that too comes at an extra cost too.
You may notice Amazon.ca suggesting an estimated shipping date of 1 to 2 months. Trust us when we say that Amazon does this type of default shipping date when they are unsure. So the 1 to 2 months is certainly an overestimate as it were. Amazon.ca doesn’t have a definitive date yet, so they are playing it safe.
