    Galaxy S10 5G may arrive in the US on May 16

    The Galaxy S10 5G goes on sale in South Korea on April 5. However, it seems the device will take much longer to arrive in the US. According to ever-reliable Evan Blass, the Galaxy S10 5G will be launched by Verizon on May 16. The device will be Verizon-exclusive initially. Other major carriers in the US are expected to sell it later in 2019. Several European countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom, will also get the device over the summer.

    Galaxy S10 5G's US price still a mystery

    The 256GB variant of the Galaxy S10 5G costs 1.39 million won (~$1,220) in South Korea, whereas the 512GB model is priced at 1.55 million won (~$1,360). However, there is still no word on how much the world's first 5G smartphone will cost in the US. In South Korea, early buyers are also getting a free pair of Galaxy Buds and a free wireless charger. Samsung should be offering similar gifts to buyers in the US as well.

    Along with faster connectivity, the Galaxy S10 5G also boasts a number of improvements over the Galaxy S10+, including a bigger 4,500mAh battery, 25W fast charging, a larger 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, and two 3D depth cameras. Samsung recently achieved 5G speed of 1 Gbps in the Galaxy S10 5G on KT's commercial 5G network. While the same speed may not be possible in real life, data transfer rates are still said to be about 20 times faster than 4G.

    Verizon, meanwhile, has flicked the switch on its 5G mobile services ahead of its actual rollout schedule of April 11, albeit in two cities: Chicago and Minneapolis. The carrier plans to expand the coverage to over 30 markets nationwide by the end of this year.
