The launch date for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G flagship smartphone has been announced as April 5. Unsurprisingly, the device will go on sale on this date in the manufacturer’s home country of South Korea. The price for the 5G model of the S10 series has yet to be confirmed, but it is expected to be around 1.5 million won (~US$1330).

Samsung is going to let South Korean consumers get their hands on the 5G version of the Galaxy S10 from April 5 onwards. The smartphone is then expected to be released in the US shortly afterwards, and it will be sold exclusively with the carrier Verizon. Currently, Samsung is offering free Galaxy Buds, a wireless charger, and a one-year 50% discount for display replacements to those who register to purchase the S10 5G between April 5 and April 16.

It’s believed the South Korean government has been encouraging telecommunications providers to speed up work on the country’s 5G network, ostensibly to beat the USA to the punch. That way, early-bird buyers in the Asian nation will be able to enjoy the Galaxy S10's lightning-fast 5G connection capabilities. Verizon will apparently launch its 5G network on April 11.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone comes with a 6.7-inch display and is powered by an Exynos 9820 SoC. It is supported by 8 GB RAM and 512 GB storage and features a quad camera setup on the rear and a dual camera system on the front. It seems Samsung may have just beaten Motorola to having the world’s first 5G smartphone commercially available for the public.
