Here you go! the complete details of the much-hyped Samsung Galaxy S10 5G smartphone. Though the networks are not yet rolled out fully across the globe for 5G, the dog fight has already begun. Samsung draws first blood out of the fight with the launch of its first 5G Smartphone, Galaxy 5G in its home country Korea. It will be available for sale starting 5th April 2019. The local telecom in Korea has already begun operations of 5G from 1st December 2018.

 “We are at the beginning of a new era where the incredible speed and connectivity of 5G becomes a reality, bringing the world closer to Samsung’s vision of connected living,” said DJ Koh, President, and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

Key features as highlighted by Samsung at the time of launch

  • Pro-Grade Hexa Camera: Samsung has upped the game by providing a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). This can be taken as a separate processor dedicated for picture processing. It is similar to dedicated graphics processors in Laptop / Desktop to render high-end graphics like 4K and gaming. This will definitely help in processing the images with much higher details. As the name suggests, it has 6 cameras that include one 3D depth camera. The bokeh feature is achieved by actually bouncing the lights off the object and receiving back. This helps the NPU to understand the depth/distance and accordingly provide the same in the final picture.
  •  Big Viewing Screen: The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes with a 6.7-inch end-to-end display. The screen is a dynamic AMOLED display. This display is specially designed by Samsung with keeping in mind of the 5G aspects. Being high-speed internet capable phone, the content rendered will be of 4K, AR, VR, etc an hence the display should accommodate every detail.
  • Performance Factor: With high-end CPUs to process everything, 5G network speeds, you are bound to consume data/gaming a lot. Hence there arise the need for higher battery backup. Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is packed with 4500mAh battery. This can support quite well during the day with standard usage. This is coupled with Super Fast Charging at 25W in case the need comes to juice it up.   

Galaxy S10 5G will be available in three colour variants: Majestic Black, Royal Gold, Crown Silver colors starting in Korea on April 5, 2019. Samsung, unfortunately, hasn’t shared the official pricing for the device in South Korea.
