Samsung Galaxy S10 5G Speed Test

Samsung is betting big on 5G with its upcoming successor to the Galaxy S10.

When does the Galaxy S10 5G come out? Available in Australia from 28 May 2019
What's new about the Galaxy S10 5G? 5G connectivity, 6.7-inch screen, 3D camera
How much will the Galaxy S10 5G cost? On contract with Telstra, local outright pricing TBC.

5G is still very much in its infancy here in Australia, and it's going to be quite a while before coverage reaches a level where the average Aussie can reliably connect to a 5G network.

Nevertheless, Samsung is getting ahead of the competition with its first 5G-compatible smartphone, the aptly titled Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Announced at Samsung's Unpacked event in February 2019, the premium device isn't just a Galaxy S10 with a 5G modem crammed in – it's a wholly new device with a slew of extra features to distinguish it from its 4G siblings.

Design

  • 6.7-inch screen – the largest in a Galaxy S handset yet
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor built into the screen

Camera

  • Four-camera array at the back
  • 3D depth camera for capturing 3D images and videos

Performance

  • Packs the same powerful processor as the rest of the Galaxy S10 line

Battery

  • 4,500mAh battery
  • Fast wireless charging
  • Wireless PowerShare for reverse wireless charging

Early verdict

  • 5G might be its key selling point, but that's not all the Galaxy S10 5G has to offer

Pricing and availability

  • The Galaxy S10 5G will launch in Australia on 28 May 2019
  • Available on contract through Telstra
  • Local outright pricing TBC

While Samsung hasn't announced pricing for the Galaxy S10 5G yet, it has revealed that Telstra will be the first telco in Australia to carry the phone when it launches in the first half of 2019.

Additionally, anyone who purchases the Samsung Galaxy S10+ through Telstra will be eligible for a free upgrade to the Galaxy S10 5G when it releases.

Telstra has stated that access to 5G will exist from the end of June 2019 as a "bolt-on" option for 5G devices, including the Galaxy S10 5G, but that it will be free for the first 12 months for all users. After that, if you're on the top 2 priced plans from Telstra it will be included, but for other consumers it will cost an additional $15 per month.
