The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will take advantage of 5G networks, so it is possible for Samsung to launch this device in other markets as this new technology becomes available.
In addition to supporting 5G networks, the Galaxy S10 5G features an additional ToF-type rear camera to measure depth, a 6.7″ screen and a 4,500 mAh battery.
It is worth to mention that according to a reliable industry insider, Ice Universe, Samsung’s market share in China has almost quadrupled since the beginning of the year, going from the heartbreaking 1% in January to impressive 3.6% during the tenth week of 2019 – March 4th to March 10th. According to the report, the primary source of this “comeback” was the recently-announced Galaxy S10 series.
The new line of flagship devices was released on March 8th and has reportedly outperformed the tepid sales of last year’s Galaxy S9 lineup by massive margins in China. In fact, the number of Galaxy S10 and S10+ units sold within the first two hours of pre-orders was allegedly equal to the double of sales achieved by the Galaxy S9 and S9+ during the first day.
