Samsung has announced that its Galaxy S10 5G smartphone will launch on 5 April 2019 in Korea.
The device is based on the Samsung Galaxy S10 which launched earlier this year, but features 5G connectivity and a bigger 6.7-inch display.
“We are at the beginning of a new era where the incredible speed and connectivity of 5G becomes a reality, bringing the world closer to Samsung’s vision of connected living,” said DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung Electronics.
“With speeds up to roughly 20-times faster than 4G networks, consumers on a 5G network can download a full season of a TV show in minutes.”
To handle the increased demands of the larger screen and 5G connectivity, Samsung has fitted the S10 5G with a 4,500mAh battery.
