Samsung set to launch first 5G smartphone

Since many other countries, including the United Kingdom, don't have functioning 5G networks yet, it's no surprise the Galaxy S10 5G is only launching in one region, but as the 5G connectivity grows we'll likely see the handset available in other places.

A second option would be the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, the smartphone the South Korean company unveiled along with the other Galaxy S10 series phones two months ago. No information about pricing options emerged though, so we're still in the dark on that one.

The introduction of the Galaxy S10 5G is a key milestone in Samsung's research and development that also includes key breakthroughs like the world's first gigabit speed 5G transmission, the first 5G handover between multiple cells, and now, its first 5G smartphone available on the market.

The Galaxy S10 5G has the same hardware configuration as the regular Galaxy S10 flagship but adds 5G support into the mix.
