Modern technology gives us many things.

Australia’s first 5G smartphone – the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – goes on sale next week.

Samsung’s new Galaxy S10 5G – Australia’s first 5G mobile device – will go on sale next week through Telstra and Samsung Experience Stores.

The Galaxy S10 5G is another step up from its recently released Galaxy S10 line-up with an even larger screen, superior camera functionality to capture better photos and videos and a bigger battery.

And Telstra customers who purchased the Galaxy S10+ during the eligibility period earlier this year will be able to upgrade their device to the new Galaxy S10 5G at no extra cost.

Customers will have 21 days from May 28 to redeem this offer.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will run on 5G and 4GX networks and offer high-speed mobile connectivity wherever 5G and 4GX is available.

Telstra will be the first carrier to offer the device starting from next week.

The Galaxy S10 5G has a 6.7-inch Infinity-O display, and a six camera system (two on the front and four on the back) which will allow users to capture stunning images and videos.

Also on board is a huge 4,500mAh battery which also has Super Fast charging capabilities.

“The Galaxy S10 5G is designed to perform at a level that we have never before seen in a Samsung device,” said Garry McGregor, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Australia.

“From its 3D Depth Camera to 5G network capability, we’re delivering the ultimate in terms of innovation, design, and experience.”

“This is the most anticipated device Samsung has ever launched in Australia as it combines additions to our amazing Galaxy range but also opens the door to the opportunities that 5G experiences will bring people in future.

“With this upcoming launch, we are delivering on years of collaboration with Telstra to help break new ground in device and network performance.”

Telstra consumer segment executive Kevin Teoh says the launch of Australia’s first 5G mobile device marks the beginning of a new era.

“This will be a game-changing moment for our customers. Telstra has been building Australia’s first 5G technology for some time, and now our customers are ready to be the first in Australia to experience this technology in the areas where 5G is now available,” Mr Teoh said.

“5G-enabled devices are the next step towards customers experiencing the potential of this revolutionary network technology.

“Faster downloads, high resolution video streaming with less buffering and better mobile gaming on the go are just the start of the network technology’s possibilities. 5G also has the potential to transform the way we all live and work.”

The device will be available with 256GB or 512GB internal memory capacities.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will also be available in two colours – Crown Silver (256GB) and Majestic Black (256GB and 512GB).

Plans and pricing will be announced on May 28.
