Samsung will need its recently launched Galaxy S10 family to sell like gangbusters in order to rebound from a Q1 slump. When the 5G model hits the U.S.it will be on the Verizon network exclusively. In the United States, the average fixed broadband speed in the U.S is 96Mbps.
This is an attachable 6.2-inch OLED second screen, which can be used independently from the main display - so you could for example watch Netflix on one screen while looking up the actors on IMDB using the other.
But of course, the standout features are the S10's performance (powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor) and a phenomenal battery life that can get over 20 operating hours off a single charge.
The Galaxy S10 5G camera is superb thanks to a fourth lens for enabling low light shots, sharp autofocus, and better perception of depth. One more excitement is a Samsung freebie of $160 Galaxy Buds.
Commercialising 5G gives South Korea the chance to build around the technology, which is crucial for the future development of devices such as autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things.
World estimates predict that 5G service will generate incomes by 2035 $3.5 billion Dollars and 22 million jobs worldwide. That's anywhere from 10 to 100 times faster than today's mobile service. "But 5G could really make a difference in self-driving automobiles and remote services in terms of high reliability and precision", Kim told ABC News.
