The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G launches tomorrow

Samsung Electronics Co. launched its Galaxy S10 5G in South Korea on Friday, hoping to boost the stagnant smartphone market with the new device designed for the latest mobile network.

South Korea has become the first country in the world to flip the switch on its mobile 5G networks.

According to Evan Blass, the Galaxy S10 5G will launch on Verizon in the USA on May 16. Furthermore, OnePlus already confirmed that its first 5G device would be available on British carrier EE this quarter, aiming for a sub-$1,000 price.

A few hours after the announcement, US telecoms company Verizon Communications Inc said it was launching Wednesday its 5G service on mobile phones in two cities, moving up its schedule by a week.

South Korea Plans to Bring 5G services Before China and the USA

Market leader SK Telecom is offering an unlimited package for those who subscribe to its 5G service by June, saying it will decide on its pricing strategy based on market reaction in the first three months.

The carriers say 5G-enabled smartphones are capable of downloading data 20 times faster than existing 4G devices, which in theory would enable users to download movie files nearly instantly.

World estimates predict that 5G service will generate incomes by 2035 $3.5 billion Dollars and 22 million jobs worldwide. For Samsung, the early mover tag in 5G gives a major lead over Apple Inc by at least one-and-a-half years. According to Yonhap, South Korea started 5G services two hours before the US. With speeds up to roughly 20 times faster than 4G networks, consumers on a 5G network can download a full season of a TV show in minutes, play graphics-rich cloud games, stream 4K video with virtually no lag and enjoy enhanced VR and AR experiences.

The South Korean technology giant estimated an operating profit of 6.2 trillion won ($5.4 billion) for the January-March quarter, which would represent a 60.4% drop from the same period previous year. Samsung's 5G flagship will be the first meaningful push for 5G phones in many countries, but the only thing we knew about its path to the United States was that it would first come to Verizon sometime before summer.
