AT&T has announced the launch of their first 5G smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, although you cannot but the device as yet.
AT&T will be giving the handset to developers after their AT&T SHAPE event on the 22nd and 23 of June, the company has not give a launch date when retail customers will be able to buy the handset. The device is also launching on some of their business plans.
Customers on the new AT&T Business Unlimited Preferred plan can use the Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung’s first 5G device and the most advanced phone in the S Series, on our 5G mmWave (5G+) network. Our 5G+ network is available today in very limited parts of 19 cities1, with plans to reach parts of at least 30 cities. For a limited time, businesses can order the Galaxy S10 5G with 256GB internal memory through their AT&T account representatives for $999.99, the same price as our 128GB LTE Galaxy S10+.
“Businesses are leading the charge on the nation’s first mobile 5G network, and this is the next step in unlocking 5G’s full potential for those early adopters and innovators,” said Mo Katibeh, Chief Marketing Officer, AT&T Business. “With mobile 5G a core tenet of our 5G strategy for businesses, we’re making this amazing new device available so that the business community can begin creating new experiences and drive the next industrial revolution through unprecedented mobile capabilities.”
The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is exclusive to the Verizon Wireless in the US at the moment, so this explains why you cannot buy the device from AT&T. The handset is expected to go on sale with AT&T some time in the next few months.
