Vodafone has already confirmed that its 5G network will go live in seven cities on July 3rd. EE has previously mentioned the “second half of 2019” as its launch window for 5G. This way, the handset will already be in customers’ hands by the time the 5G network goes live. Pre-orders begin May 22nd.

Samsung is working with local mobile carriers in these countries to get the Galaxy S10 5G out starting next month.
