Sprint is launching the 5G Samsung Galaxy S10 in the summer

Vlad, 07 January 2019

Rumor has it there will be more than one 5G version of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10, and that makes sense because it appears that at the beginning the new tech will require a customized model for each carrier using 5G. That's a pretty huge step back from the current state of 4G, but remember that LTE got started like that too.

Anyway, one of those 5G iterations of Samsung's next flagship is headed to Sprint, the carrier proudly announced in a press release today. Well, the company stopped short of naming the device, but did reveal that "an innovative, standards-based 5G smartphone" is "expected to launch in summer 2019 from Samsung". The obvious candidate is the S10, so let's not play Sprint's game and just call it.

The Sprint S10 will also work on the carrier's 4G LTE network, of course, and it will support its 1.9 GHz spectrum (band 25) as well as its 800 MHz spectrum (band 26), and other LTE bands for roaming.

In the first half of this year Sprint will launch its mobile 5G network in nine cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.
