Last month, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship smartphone series for 2019: the Galaxy S10 series. Among the devices it introduced were the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10+, and the Galaxy S10 5G. Out of all these devices, only the Galaxy S10 5G was not discussed entirely and was not given an official release date. Instead, Samsung promised that it would be released in the second quarter of the year.
But it looks like Samsung is finally ready to reveal more information about this particular device. For starters, the South Korean manufacturer confirmed that the Galaxy S10 5G will be released on April 5th. Unfortunately, this release date does not include the US.
Instead, Samsung is implementing April 5th as a marketing strategy to entice more South Korean customers to purchase the 5G flagship device. Customers who register the device between April 5th and 16th will be entitled to receive a free wireless charger and a set of Galaxy Buds. Those who also purchase the phone will have a 50% discount for a one-time screen replacement that can be used within the first year.
Despite announcing the release date, Samsung still hasn’t confirmed the official price of the Galaxy S10 5G. There are analysts who believe the phone could cost 1.5 million won in South Korea, or around $1,332.
So that leaves us with the ever pressing concern: when will its US launch be? Considering the Galaxy S10 5G is slated to initially be exclusively available from Verizon before it becomes available to other carriers in the later part of the year.
Right now, Verizon has already announced that it will be launching its 5G network on April 11th. Once the network has launched, Verizon users will be able to connect to 5G with the Moto Z3 and its dedicated 5G Moto Mod. The Galaxy S10 5G will give Verizon customers another option for a 5G-enabled device once it becomes available in the US. Unfortunately, neither Samsung nor Verizon have announced an exact release date.
