Samsung was initially aiming for a release by the end of March, but discussions between local carrier partners and the South Korean government were ultimately prolonged.

We do know some information on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G however - the handset will be exclusive to Verizon in the United States, but other countries will see it sold from various retailers, such as O2 in the UK. Also, we have no launch details for the United States and other global markets that will soon get 5G in the near future.

Unfortunately, Samsung still hasn't confirmed the Galaxy S10 5G's official price.

After a few leaked renders since the past few days, Samsung has today unveiled its newest smartphone, the Galaxy A40. Additionally, they will also get a 50% discount on screen replacement for up to 1 year from the date of purchase. Even so, it will still be the first commercially available 5G-enabled smartphone. Like the other members of the family, the Galaxy S10 features an in-display fingerprint reader, punch hole cutout for the selfie cameras, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor (along with an added Snapdragon X50 modem for 5G connectivity).

In phone mode, the Fold has a 4.6-inch display. This will undoubtedly affect the sales performance of Samsung Galaxy Fold as the crease is quite distracting, especially when watching movies and playing games.

Further, the report denies previous rumours which suggested triple-lens rear camera.

Samsung recently launched its Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 smartphones in India. A front-facing camera located on the Cover Display. This will help measure depth and will help with augmented reality applications.

The S10 5G also comes with a bigger 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display, larger battery and quadruple rear camera.

It runs Google's Android 9.0 Pie operating system with the company's own One UI skin on top.
