For AT&T, it is not quite 'out with the old and in with the new', as it is 'out with broken and in with the new'. The 'new' in this case would be Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G model, which as the name implies, has a 5G radio inside. As for the 'not old but broken', that would be the Galaxy Fold—customers are receiving notices that AT&T has canceled their Galaxy Fold preorders. More on that in a moment. The Galaxy S10 5G is the flagship model in the Galaxy S10 series, which comprises the regular Galaxy S10, the bigger Galaxy S10+, and the cheaper Galaxy S10e (we have a review in progress of this model, by the way). It is the only one of the four to rock a 5G modem, making it an enticing... Read more...
AT&T and Verizon may have been the first to activate their 5G wireless networks in the United States, but Sprint is looking to have the broadest coverage (to date) available to the largest number of Americans with its initial rollout. Sprint is launching its 5G service in the following major metropolitan areas: Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and Kanas City. Unlike AT&T and Verizon, which have embraced millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum from their 5G rollouts, Sprint is using Ericsson-provided 64T64R (64 transmitters 64 receivers) 5G Massive MIMO radios that support split-mode. Split-mode allows the wireless carrier to deliver both 4G LTE and 5G NR service at the same time, all from... Read more...
The promise of 5G wireless service has been exciting for most users as carriers like Verizon have promised not only much faster data speeds on-the-go with mobile devices, but also much faster wireless speeds inside homes and businesses. Verizon has touted its 5G Home service that will put faster 5G wireless speeds inside homes with downloads of 1Gbps promised. One caveat to that service is that the initial rollout will be in only five cities. A new video of a user tesing the Verizon 5G service on a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone has surfaced, and it shows that Verizon has made good on its 5G promises in Chicago. The video shows the S10 5G shooting up to 1098 Mbps download speed on a device... Read more...
The Galaxy Fold might be getting all of attention these days when it comes to Samsung's smartphone lineup -- for all the wrong reasons -- but there is a new flagship waiting in the wings. We're of course talking about the Galaxy Note 10, which probably won't be officially launched until sometime this summer (around August - September). However, we've been hearing quite a few rumors about the Galaxy Note 10 over the past few months, and we thought that we'd put them altogether in this article for you. At the most basic level, we're under the impression that the Galaxy Note 10 will most resemble the Galaxy S10 5G with respect to size, specifications and capabilities.... Read more...
Coinciding with Verizon's exclusive preorder availability of Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G handset, the nation's largest wireless carrier on Thursday announced the expansion of its 5G Ultra Wideband network into 20 additional US cities. That's good news for people who happen to live in places like Atlanta, Boston, and Charlotte. The same goes for residents of Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Washington, DC. "The Galaxy S10 5G on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network will give our customers access to incredible speeds and the latest and greatest streaming,... Read more...
What good is it to own a 5G-capable smartphone if there are no 5G networks? That is not a question owners of Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G handset will have to answer, if they live in South Korea. That's because SK Telecom is getting ready to flip the switch on its 5G network, making South Korea the first county to commercially off 5G wireless services. The advantage of true 5G is that it offers much faster speeds compared to 4G LTE—it is up to 20 times faster, with download speeds peaking at 20 gigabits per second (Gbps) or higher. 5G also offers lower latencies, advanced management features (of interest to wireless carriers), improved security, and a few other goodies, such as increased capacity....

Late last month, we heard reports that Samsung would make its Galaxy S10 5G smartphone available starting on April 5th. Today, Samsung confirmed that information and said that the launch is indeed on track for this Friday in South Korea. It should be noted that the first 5G network became operational in South Korea on December 1st, 2018 and interestingly enough, the backbone of the network is comprised of Samsung’s own 5G networking hardware. Samsung claims that when the Galaxy S10 5G is operating on a supported 5G network, users will experience speeds up to 20 times faster than what’s possible with current generation 4G LTE networks (or 5G E for that matter)....

Samsung pulled the wraps off its Galaxy S10 family of smartphones in late February, and the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ went on sale earlier this month. One member of the family that hasn’t yet launched, however, is the Galaxy S10 5G. We’re now learning that this smartphone is expected to launch in South Korea on April 5th according to YonHap News. If you’re a U.S. resident hoping to get your mitts on the Galaxy S10 5G, you’ll have to wait just a bit longer. Word is that it will be available as a Verizon Wireless exclusive starting from April 11th. If that April 11th date sounds familiar, it’s because that’s the same date that... Read more...
Although there has been a bit of confusion surrounding when T-Mobile’s 5G network will first be available to customers, there is less ambiguity surrounding the details of 5G plan pricing. T-Mobile is known for helping to re-popularize unlimited data plans in the United States, and that unlimited streak will continue with 5G availability. T-Mobile CTO Neville Ray made it clear that not only will its 5G plans be unlimited – like its current 4G LTE plans – but that there won’t be any pricing premium compared to its existing service. That’s right, whether you have a 4G LTE smartphone or a newfangled 5G device, you’ll still pay the same price. So,... Read more...
