Samsung has announced launch dates for its Galaxy S10 5G smartphone in the UK. The handset will be available for pre-order a week from now and will ship to customers in early June. The flagship phone from Samsung will be sold by two local operators and the company itself.

Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G will be available to pre-order starting May 22 and will go on sale from June 7. The smartphone will be available directly from Samsung’s own online and retail stores, from EE, and from Vodafone. Pricing of the product will be disclosed when it becomes available for pre-order a week from now.

Equipped with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display with curved edges and a 3040×1440 resolution, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G for the European market is based on the company’s own platform comprising of the Exynos 9820 SoC and an in-house developed 5G modem. The AP will be paired with 8 GB of DRAM, 256 GB of NAND flash storage, as well as a 4,500-mAh battery.

As reported, imaging capabilities of the Galaxy S10 5G are more advanced than those of the regular models. In particular, it has an hQVGA time-of-flight 3D sensor on its front and on its back, two things that 4G versions lack.

    I just hope the 5g antenna can be disabled to reduce battery consumption.

    I would wait for battery life tests before drawing that conclusion... 5G should help battery life, if anything. If you don't have 5G service in your area though, then it'd be a drain.

    Right, that's the point. Most of us don't have 5g service and won't any time soon, but the other features make it worth buying instead of the 4g model.

    No they don't.

    Obviously this is something they would have thought of since the majority of the world does not now nor will it have 5G connections available.

    I'm guessing it will work the way wifi6 works now. Which is when there's wifi 6,it connects.
