Samsung Galaxy S10 5G gets a US release date
« on: April 05, 2019, 06:55:43 AM »

Announced at the same time with the S10e, S10, and S10+, the Galaxy S10 5G is the only handset in Samsung's new flagship smartphone series that can't be bought yet. While the Galaxy S10 5G is scheduled for launch on April 5 in South Korea (Samsung's home country), there's been no word on the phone's release date for the US market. Well, not until today.

According to ever-reliable Evan Blass, the Galaxy S10 5G should be launched by Verizon Wireless on May 16. For the beginning, the new smartphone will be a Verizon-exclusive device (with other major carriers expected to sell it later in 2019), so we'll definitely not see it on the market before May. 

Earlier today, Verizon officially launched 5G mobile services in the US, albeit only in two cities: Chicago and Minneapolis. By the end of 2019, the carrier plans to offer 5G services in over 30 markets nationwide, so folks buying Samsung's 5G-ready Galaxy S10 will have various places where to take advantage of its speedy data transfer capabilities. Theoretically, 5G lets you achieve data transfer speeds of up to 1 Gbps (Gigabits per second). While you can't really reach that in real life, download and upload speeds will be faster than on 4G - up to about 20 times, according to Samsung.
