If you have been wanting to see a Zenfone 3 in person and live in Canada, you now have the opportunity. Both Best Buy and Staples retail locations are now showing in stock and in store inventory of Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) and Zenfone 3 Laser (ZC551KL). Check either retailers website to be sure, but the chances to see a model on display are a lot better now than ever before.Check our Zenfone 3 Canada Page here
If you check them out for the first time, please add a comment below on your thoughts. You will probably agree that the design and style is top notch and premium looking. You are most likely to find the dark blue color of the ZE552KL and the silver model of the ZC551KL. The Zenfone 3 Deluxe? Not quite yet unfortunately.
Canada has the ZE552KL whereas the US market does not. This is a surprising move considering that a lot of marketing and popularity has been around the Zenfone 3 (ZE552KL) and to a lesser extent the smaller yet same (ZE520KL) model. Even though Canada has seen some stock of the dark blue model and the Laser model, the supply has been a bit hit and miss. In addition, the Zenfone 3 Deluxe is still in pre order phase.
In terms of a quality unlocked smartphone that you can use on any of the Canadian mobile networks, the ZE552KL and ZC551KL are good choices. Check Best Buy Canada website to check a location near you to see if they have models in stock. Stores are starting to have display models, others are not. Staples stores will be a safer bet to find a display model although it’s a bit trickier to find which stores have in-store stock. Most locations though are getting their inventory.
