Samsung Galaxy S10 5G lands in the UK on June 7

Vlad, 15 May 2019

Today Samsung has officially announced that the Galaxy S10 5G is going to become available in the UK on June 7. Initially, it will be offered by EE and Vodafone.

Speaking of Vodafone, just yesterday it revealed that its 5G network is going live in seven cities in the UK on July 3, so if you'll have plenty of time to purchase an S10 5G if you want to make sure you can use the new airwaves since day one. EE on the other hand hasn't shared an exact launch date for its 5G network yet, only saying it's imminent.

The Galaxy S10 5G will be out in Majestic Black and Crown Silver, and starting on June 7 you'll also find it in Samsung Experience stores and online at Samsung.com/UK. Pre-orders will start on May 22, which is presumably also when we're going to find out how much it will cost, since today's press release says nothing about that. Given that it starts at a whopping $1,299 in the US, expect it to be anything but cheap.

The Galaxy S10 5G differentiates itself from the S10+ with the largest screen (at 6.7") and largest battery ever put in an S series phone at 4,500 mAh, super fast 25W wired charging, and the addition of a ToF camera on both the front and the back.

Keep in mind that Samsung says your S10 5G will be "locked to a participating network" so it's likely there will be one model for EE and one for Vodafone and you won't be able to use one on the other's 5G network.
