Future Shop to demo Samsung Galaxy S5 at six locations before April 11 launch

Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F)

If you want to see the Samsung Galaxy S5 in action before its April 11 launch, you may be able to do so at Future Shop but it may involve a bit of a trek. The electronics retailer will have Samsung Galaxy S5 viewing centres open at Samsung Experience locations starting on Saturday, March 29. Unfortunately, only six locations across Canada will be able to offer this preview due to limited supplies.

  • Ontario:
    • Mississauga: 5900 Mavis Rd. (near Britannia)
  • Alberta
    • Calgary: Shawnessy Town Centre, 350R Shawville Blvd.SE (at Shawville Gate)
    • Edmonton: 4250 – 137th Ave. (at 42 St. NW)
    • South Edmonton Common: 1320 99th St. NW (at Parsons Rd. NW)
  • British Columbia
    • Downtown Vancouver: 798 Granville St. (at Robson St.)
    • Victoria: 3450 Uptown Blvd. (at Douglas St.)

With a number of flagship smartphones, including the HTC One (M8), on their way in the coming days and weeks, the demonstrations will give Samsung a chance to potentially win over potential buyers by giving them a chance to kick the proverbial tires.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 will make its Canadian debut on April 11 (along with the Samsung Galaxy S5Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit) with a number of carriers, including Bell Mobility, Eastlink, Fido, MTS, Rogers Wireless, SaskTel, TELUS Mobility, Videotron and Virgin Mobile Canada. Pricing will start at about CA$230 with a two-year contract.
