South Korean mobile network operators take first 5G phone orders

Galaxy Note 10 leak keys in on 5G hero status

The Samsung Galaxy S10 (Review) utilises Qualcomm's 3D ultrasonic in-display fingerprint technology, which relies on ultrasonic waves reflecting from the finger to create a 3D map of the fingerprint pattern.

Commercialising 5G gives South Korea the chance to build around the technology, which is crucial for the future development of devices such as autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things. When the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is launched in other countries we'll let you know, so check back regularly for updates. Besides, a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 was also announced.

Ultimate Performance: In addition to delivering the speed to download a season of HD television in minutes or buffer-free experiences for uninterrupted streaming, the Galaxy S10 5G packs a 4,500mAh battery for streaming content and playing games without needing to rechargefrequently.

According to a report from Bloomberg, the phone will be available to pre-order in the United States from April 18, with a tentative release date of May 16 - if that's correct, it'll actually launch after the Samsung Galaxy Fold. However, darshark just proved that fingerprint sensors, in their current implementation on smartphones, are not as safe as we would like them to be.

The new Galaxy S10 5G costs about one-point-39 million won for the 256 gigabyte version while the 512 gigabyte model is priced at over one-point-55 million won.

It makes ideal sense for the Galaxy S10 5G to be priced well over $1,000, especially that it will be one of the few 5G smartphones available for purchase in the United States.

Verizon's Ultra Wideband network customers must use Motorola's Z3 and a "5G Moto Mod", an accessory that allows Z3 to connect to the 5G Ultra Wideband network. Thankfully, Verizon will most likely offer consumers the choice to pay for the flagship by signing up for a long-term contract.

Competition is heating up among Korea's top three mobile service carriers as Samsung Electronics' latest fifth-generation (5G) Galaxy S10 smartphone went on sale Friday.
