Verizon Will Start Taking Pre-Orders for the Galaxy S10 5G on April 5 in the U.S. - Get Your Wallets Ready
Samsung plans to first launch the phone in its home country of South Korea. The company says that it tested the phone with the phone company KT Corporation and it was able to achieve a speed of 1Gbps, proving that 5G networks can now provide stable gigabit speeds to customers with 5G-ready phones. In addition to KT, carrier companies like SK Telecom and LG Uplus are also onboard to provide 5G services when the Galaxy S10 5G is released in Korea.
After South Korea, the phone will be launched in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, and Switzerland. Carriers from these countries have been working with Samsung to set up a 5G network for the phone. In the U.S., Verizon will start taking pre-orders for the Galaxy S10 5G on April 5. As for the pricing, ETNews reports that the base model featuring 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal memory will set you back by $1,220 in Korea while the model with 512GB of storage would cost nearly $1,360. This still makes it cheaper than the fully spec’d out version of the Galaxy S10 Plus, which costs $1,599.
For those ordering the Galaxy S10 5G before April 16, Samsung has some special offers such as free Galaxy Buds and a wireless charger, and screen replacement at half the cost for the first year. The Galaxy S10 5G would apparently be available in three color variants. The 256GB model will allegedly be available in the colors Royal Gold, Crown Silver, and Majestic Black, while the 512GB model will only be available in the Crown Silver paint job.
Initial reports have revealed that the Galaxy S10 series has been received well, thanks to newer technologies such as in-display fingerprint scanner and reverse wireless charging. Since the upcoming variant would be 5G compatible, logic dictates that it should get a better response than the 4G LTE models, despite the fact that users are not expected to witness immediate benefits of 5G this year.
