Samsung and Verizon confirm a 5G phone for first half of 2019, likely to be Galaxy S10

“Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is expected to arrive with a large 6.7-inch screen and six camera sensors”

Samsung has recently issued a press release that confirms the launch of its 5G smartphone in the first half of 2019. The company’s press release announces Samsung and Verizon’s upcoming 5G device, which would be based upon Qualcomm Snapdragon Mobile Platform with the Snapdragon X50 5G NR modem.


It has been rumoured for quite some time that the Galaxy S10, which is being referred as the “Special Edition” by Samsung would have 5G support. Now, it is very unlikely that the newly announced 5G smartphone would be anything other than the Galaxy S10, although it is not mentioned in the press release.

The press release issued by the company claims that it will demonstrate a proof-of-concept smartphone using the above-mentioned Qualcomm modem. The global version of this device is likely to use Samsung’s own Exynos 5100 5G modem.

Based on the rumoured specs of Samsung’s Special Edition, Galaxy S10, it could be expected with a large 6.7-inch screen and six camera sensors (four primary lenses and two front-facing). The body of the device would get a ceramic back finish and is likely to have a back and white colour options, as per the rumours. There has been no word regarding the price of the device but since it is a super premium smartphone from the brand, a high price tag could surely be expected.

The device would also be available in three other variants, which are said to feature a smaller display than the rumoured Galaxy S10 5G. However, the new 5G technology would not be available as soon as we have experience last time with the 4G LTE. The 5G is likely to have some reliable coverage to go for before it finally operates.
