Pre-Orders for Galaxy S10 5G Begin as Verizon Expands Network
With the rough week that Samsung has been having in regards to its Galaxy Fold, the South Korean multinational conglomerate is now leaning on the expansion of Verizon’s 5G service to help lift it back up.
Verizon is delivering on its promise to not only expand the 5G Ultra Wideband network to more cities, but also to begin accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone and handset. Although the Moto Z3 is able to gain access to Verizon’s 5G network through a Moto Mod accessory, the S10 5G will become the first phone with 5G integrated into its hardware.
Availability begins on May 16, with pricing at $1,300 for the 256GB S10 5G or $1,400 for the 512GB version – both a few hundred dollars under the Galaxy Fold for a phone that will probably hold up 10x better. Verizon also said that they would waive the 5G add-on fee for a limited time, and bundle a free pair of Samsung Galaxy Buds and a Wireless Charging Battery Pack with each phone.
