I have zero interest in any device that has a notch or a hole punched in the screen! It's too bad also, because that 6.7" display on the 5G model with 1TB of internal storage and 12GB's of RAM really sounds great on paper, until you see the hole in the screen. Oh well. I saved myself a good chunk of cash and bought a Jade Green Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage for $800CDN from AliExpress. It comes with a case and wireless charger in the box and has no stupid notch or screen cutout. 5G in Canada will be lucky to make a true appearance until 2024. By then, I have will gone through at least a dozen newer devices.
Hopefully Huawei will be ditched and banned in Canada soon enough. Maybe then, Telus can look at Xiaomi devices, which offer mostly flagship specs at half the price.
