Galaxy S10 with support for 5G technology will go on sale only in the United States and South Korea, learned the Dutch resource GalaxyClub. According to journalists of the edition, it is indicated by identification numbers of models which the producer specified at registration — SM-G977U and SM-G977N. Long-term practice has shown that it is the symbols in the factory name of the device that can serve as a direct evidence not only of the regional purpose, but also — often — of its functionality.
Samsung’s decision to limit the geography of sales of the Galaxy S10 with support for fifth-generation networks is quite logical and expected. This is largely due to the fact that a full-fledged infrastructure for servicing 5G technology will appear in Korea and the United States. Thus, the emergence of a flagship with the ability to work with the Network at ultra-high speeds in countries where 5G is not officially supported, it would be absolutely meaningless, and he would not be in demand.
Samsung’s intention to release a special version of the flagship smartphone of the 2019 model year with support for fifth-generation networks was announced at the Qualcomm Tech Summit event, which took place at the beginning of the month in Hawaii. Then the official representative of the South Korean vendor made a statement about the joint work of Samsung, Qualcomm and Verizon to ensure the future of the Korean device with 5G support for the possibility of the most effective work in the Network.
According to open sources, only one Galaxy S10 model will be equipped with 5g support. Probably, it will be the top Galaxy S10 Plus. The future device will receive a display almost the entire front panel with a cut-out island type, which will house the front camera, as well as a triple camera with an ultra-wide lens and increased compared to its predecessor battery capacity of 4000 mAh.
