Galaxy S10 5G will hit mind-boggling speeds of up to 4Gbps

Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy S10 5G will be released on April 5. This will make it the first smartphone in the world to be compatible with the next-generation network standard. Carriers in South Korea will be launching their commercial mobile 5G networks on April 5.

5G will allow for significantly faster mobile data speeds. However, South Korea’s SK Telecom is doing some incredible things which would allow the Galaxy S10 5G to achieve speeds of up to 4Gbps. That’s unheard of for wired gigabit connections, let alone mobile connections.

Triple Aggregation helps achieve speeds of up to 4Gbps

SK Telecom recently said that it had successfully tested its 5G-LTE aggregation technology for Samsung’s 5G Galaxy S10. It hit a peak speed of 2.7Gbps by combining 5G and LTE bandwidth. That much speed will let users download a 2GB HD movie in six seconds. Galaxy S10 5G customers will initially get 2.6Gbps speeds as SK Telecom will increase it to 2.7Gbps in the second half of this year.

The carrier today revealed that it has successfully tested Triple Aggregation for the device. This uses 5G, LTE and Wi-Fi for data transmission at the same time on the Galaxy S10 5G. Triple Aggregation has been verified for this device on SK Telecom’s commercial 5G network which means it will be available to customers. This will enable speeds of up to 4Gbps on the Galaxy S10 in areas where the three networks are simultaneously deployed. That’s just mind-boggling. It’s enough to download a 2GB HD movie in four seconds.

The carrier also announced today that it has completed key tests of its 5G network on the Galaxy S10 5G. This is to ensure that there are no issues with the network when it goes live on April 5. SK Telecom expects the launch to be smooth on that day. It will also be conducting a delivery inspection for the Galaxy S10 5G in factories this week. This is to ensure that the Galaxy S10 5G launch goes off without any issues on April 5.

You mean like the normal S10, rated up to 2Gbit on 4G but anything from 2Mbit to 50Mbit on a network with affordable data, or 100Mbit on more expensive networks. Never anything close to the up-to speeds as the networks don’t support it and are heavily contended. Theoretically 5G should be somewhat better due to the shorter range / more cells, but that also means networks are more likely to cost-cut each cell using slower technology. Plus all this BS about getting businesses to replace their private networks with 5G is going to further reduce performance for everyone else. I… Read more »

You can only get this speed in lab.

5g 5g superfast speed !!! but have any one thought about the websites point of view ? honestly how many websites has enough servers & muscles to be able to provide Web surfers to get that kind of speed to download a movie ? I have 1gig fibre broadband at home & even using ethernet & laptop – my router say it’s running close to 1gig but on the other side most of the time I get speed most lower that that. to be able to enjoy that kind of speed – websites or end product also have to updates… Read more »

S10 5G my next phone…. can’t wait for next month….5G phone with ToF cameras +4500mAh battery….wow

This will be $100 more than S10+ cash price, which I consider worth of its price.

5G data plans will be announced soon.

Better to sign on a 2 year contract with this S10 5G… than to be stuck on a 4G contract for the next 2 years

Interesting enough that we are being wowed by 4gbps but the true speed of 5g should be 20GBps which ic 5 times the speed they are reaching right now.

Its new technology both in infrastructure and mobile devices. Best to wait to let them work out the problems and allow for it to reach its full potential before jumping on board 😉 should be less expensive in the long run.

How do you know about 20 GBps ?

Reason why I bought the standard s10 and decided against the 5g version: 1. The s10 is big enough and the 5g is way too big for one hand usage 2. 5g is not available everywhere and even in London! 3. 5g contract prices has not been released but expecting to be very very expensive 4. Apps and true usefulness of 5g will not be released for another 2 years until it’s becomes widely available 5. This is 1st gen technology in the s10 5g and it will be better to wait for 2nd or 3rd gen technology to iron… Read more »

O2 and EE have confirmed 5G for London later this year. They have both announced Galaxy S10 5G will be coming too.
But I’m with you on the pricing! Only just occurred to me that they’re selling 2GB data for £12 a month!. Cannot imagine how expensive 5G data will be! Not looking forward to it

ahah given the current pricing model, That would have cost you £24 in 1 second.

wait till it hit the true speed of 20GBPS!!!
