Yesterday, South Korea launched the first commercial 5G network. Samsung is not spared this event and party tested 5G on the prototype of the future flagship Galaxy S10. But about all under the order.

Three local cellular operator SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus yesterday launched the equipment and sent the first 5G signals. While the service can use only corporate clients, but large-scale deployment of networks promised in March next year. By this time in the market already there will be smartphones with support for 5G.

While the 5G network will be designated as access points, which “distribute” Wi-Fi on mobile devices.

By the way, a month earlier, the U.S. operator Verizon launched 5G in four U.S. cities: Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles and Sacramento. It’s 5G wireless service for home use, and built a network on their own standard Verizon 5G TF.
Samsung is already testing

Samsung representatives did a video on the 5G, and used for this, as we are assured by insiders, the prototype of the future flagship Galaxy S10. Of course, the final version of the smartphone will be more graceful, while the prototype is fairly wide frame around the display.

Unfortunately, to assess the design of the device is unlikely to work, but the rear panel is clearly visible to the camera with horizontally spaced lenses.

It is expected that the flagship Samsung Galaxy S10 will present in February 2019 at the MWC. Rumor has it that the model will be a premium version with support for 5G and six cameras.
