The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been delayed, which means the next best phone in Samsung’s line-up is the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, the first 5G phone on sale in USA.
You can now pick one up on Verizon, but those bragging rights are going to cost you.
Verizon is selling the 6.7-inch handset for a rather steep $1,299. For that price you do get quite a lot – 6.7-inch Quad HD+ AMOLED display, Snapdragon 855 5G processor, 8GB of RAM, up to 256GB of storage, 4,500 mAh battery, 10-megapixel front-facing camera, and triple rear camera with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens, 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and 12-megapixel telephoto lens.
You also get the only handset with 5G built-in in the USA, but of course, you can only use that on some street corners in Chicago and Minneapolis. Verizon did, however, say they will soon bring 5G to 20 additional cities and 30 in total by the end of the year.
The cheapest 256 GB model costs $1,299 or $54.16 per month for 24 months on its payment plan, while the 512GB model ($1,399) will cost you $58.33 per month for 24 months.
To sweeten the deal slightly new and existing customers can trade in an eligible smartphone to save up to $450, delivered in monthly bill credits. If you switch from another carrier and take an unlimited plan you can also get a $200 prepaid Mastercard.
To access 5G you will also need Verizon’s $10/ month Above Unlimited or Beyond Unlimited plan. Verizon is, however, bundling this for free for a limited time.
