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

They switched on the 5G network for a select group of customers Wednesday, making South Korea the world's first nation to roll out the commercial 5G service. While you can't really reach that in real life, download and upload speeds will be faster than on 4G - up to about 20 times, according to Samsung.

SK Telecom is working with its memory-chip to build a highly digitized and connected factory powered by 5G technology, and they expect about 1 million 5G customers by end-2019.

Verizon was supposed to start the service in Chicago and Minneapolis next week for Motorola phones but made a decision to turn on the service a week ahead of schedule. But, since the handset is expected to be available starting at around $1,200 in Korea (256 GB model), it's likely that its U.S. price won't be much different.

The Galaxy S10 5G puts the unrivalled power, speed and connectivity of 5G networks directly into the hands of consumers. Others might also get the Galaxy S10 5G down the road, as their 5G networks turn on.

The nation's three mobile carriers - SK Telecom Co., KT Corp. and LG Uplus Corp. - started official registration of Samsung's smartphone.

Another thing that's exclusive to the Galaxy S10 5G is its rear camera - this includes the triple camera of the S10+ as well as a special 3D Depth Camera (useful for bokeh effects in videos and for augmented reality applications).

The Galaxy S10 5G is also the largest Galaxy S10-branded smartphone, this phone features a 6.7-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED, curved display, in which you will notice two front-facing cameras which are included in the top-right corner, same as on the Galaxy S10+.

It's also coming in with four cameras on the back - 12-megapixel telephoto, 12-megapixel wide-angle, 16-megapixel ultra-wide, time-of-flight camera - and a 10-megapixel front snapper coupled with a ToF camera. "We chose to provide a special offer to lessen the burden on 5G smartphone consumers".
