As rumored, and completely expected, Samsung will launch a 5G variant of the Galaxy Note 10. Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg spilled the beans on the yet to be officially unveiled device during the company’s fiscal Q1 2019 earnings call.

Verizon CEO Hans Vestburg has confirmed that Samsung will be launching a 5G variant of the forthcoming Galaxy Note 10 later this year. Although entirely expected, it is the first time the device has been officially confirmed to be in the works. Vestburg revealed the news, perhaps out of turn, at Verizon’s Q1 2019 earnings call.

We already knew the LG V50 ThinQ was headed to Verizon, however, this will be joined by the Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy Note 10 5G. Speaking to investors, Vestburg revealed “The Note and the Galaxy coming this year will both have 5G.” Of course, the Galaxy Fold was supposed to ship in a 5G variant too, but those plans have spectacularly ground to a halt at least for the time being.

Verizon has already deployed 5G technology in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis, however coverage is very weak at this early stage. The fastest 5G speeds are achieved in the millimeter wave spectrum, however, signals don’t extend far beyond the base towers or penetrate buildings particularly well. As a result, 5G speeds for most people won’t approach theoretical maximums as coverage will generally be delivered, particularly when indoors, through the existing spectrum.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
