Samsung Galaxy S10 5G UK price, release date, and availability
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G most feature-packed member of the S10 series and, as you might expect from the name, supports 5G networks which are due to launch in the U.K. in 2019. The ultra flagship also packs a huge, 6.7-inch display, an equally massive 4,500mAh battery and a 3D depth-sensing camera.
Samsung has yet to confirm U.K. pricing for the Galaxy S10 5G, though it’s likely to be more expensive than the top S10 Plus model which is 1,399 GBP.
Samsung showed off a list of retail partners at Samsung Unpacked 2019 which included logos for EE and Vodafone. Other carriers and retailers have yet to be confirmed.
