Samsung will reportedly launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 in certain countries. 5G is a next-gen mobile technology that promises much faster browsing, streaming and downloading speeds.
According to a Korean website, Samsung will only launch the 5G-ready S10 in certain countries. It will likely be reserved for the larger, higher-end Galaxy S10+ and come at a bit of a premium.
Can't wait until next year to see the S10? Take a look at a video that shows us how it could look.
Samsung previously launched a version of the S4 with LTE-A support, so it’s not uncharted territory for the company.
The 5G version will reportedly be produced in limited quantities, and will launch a bit later than the standard S10 and S10+ (rumoured to be around March 2019).
The report also states that the standard S10 and S10+ will be unveiled in January, which would be earlier than Samsung’s usual release cycle.
Some cities will start trialling 5G networks early next year, but a full rollout and mainstream adoption is likely a few years away yet.
Samsung's next flagship phone is likely to be preceded by its first commercially available foldable phone, which is due to land later this year.
