The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G line-up launched in South Korea yesterday to celebrate the arrival of the country’s 5G network. In addition to all-important network speed tests, various first impression accounts have revealed that there’s much more to the phone than just faster network speeds.
The specifications of the S10 5G, which include a 6.7-inch Quad HD AMOLED display, a quadruple rear camera with dual OIS, a 4,500 mAh battery compatible with Super Fast charging, 8GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage, all running on Android 9.0 Pie. Samsung also reminds consumers that 5G is roughly twenty times faster than 4G, which means a full season of a TV show can be downloaded in just minutes.
Samsung nearly won the title of ‘first commercially available 5G phone’, but Motorola beat it to the punch by less than 48 hours with the release of a 5G mod for the Moto Z3 in the US, which lets users add 5G connection to the 2018 handset.
