Samsung has launched the world’s first 5G smartphone

From 1G to 5G. The predicted speed of 5G is more than 1Gbps – 1,000 times greater than the existing speed of 4G and could be implemented in laptops of the future.

SOUTH KOREA’s Samsung Electronics has become the world’s first commercially launch nationwide 5G services with the release of the Galaxy S10 5G, the world’s first available smartphone with built-in 5th-generation communications technology. The 5G service’s superfast network offers data speeds that allow users to download a movie in a second. It costs $1,200.
Unlike the S10+, the S10 5G will only come in one model which will have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It will offer microSD support for storage expansion up to 512GB though. It will also offer a huge 4500mAh battery.
Reverse charging
Like the other S10 devices, the S10 5G will support wireless charging and it will support reverse charging too so that 4500mAh cell can deliver power to two devices, whether that’s a friend’s iPhone or a wearable device. The devices just have to support Qi wireless charging to be able to take juice from the S10 5G.

5G on a supported phone like the Galaxy S10 5G will hit speeds between 1 and 10Gbps.

With 5G, said researcher Lee Sang-yoon, VR content ‘can be enjoyed in real time with no delay… I’ll be able to enjoy it in better resolution and speed’.
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.
It is expected to bring about $565 billion in global economic benefits by 2034, according to the London-based Global System for Mobile Communications, an industry alliance.
The implications of the new technology have pitted Washington against Beijing —- whose firms dominate 5G technology—in an increasingly bitter standoff.
Gorgeous display
The Galaxy S10 5G looks identical to the Galaxy S10 Plus. The S10 Plus is already large with a 6.4-inch screen, but the S10 5G expands that to a massive 6.7-inch display that makes it a little taller and wider.
Those with small hands will have difficulty using this phone one-handed. Samsung said it managed to fit all the tech it needed into the S10 5G in a similar body. The 5G phone is a little heavier at 198 grams (the S10 Plus is 175 grams and the iPhone XS Max is 208 grams), but it makes the phone feel more substantial.
The screen on the S10 5G is positively gorgeous. It’s Samsung’s new Infinity-O screen — which means there’s a hole-punch camera that floats around the display in the top of the screen like a hole punch in a piece of paper. The dual cameras on the front don’t look as good as the one on the Galaxy S10 Plus — they are spaced out more so they take up more room. That’s because it’s not the same camera system as the S10 Plus, which we’ll get to later in this review.
Colour accuracy
Samsung is also using the new Dynamic AMOLED screen, which supports HDR10+, so it has impeccable colour accuracy. The screen is sharp, though it has the same 3,040 x 1,440 resolution as the S10 Plus. The smaller S10 and S10 Plus are technically sharper, but the 5G phone is plenty bright, and it also natively reduces blue light — which can disrupt sleep — by 42 percent.
Galaxy S10 5G offers the forefront of technology. The back of the phone comes in a chrome-like finish and has almost the same horizontal camera module on the back. The headphone jack is still here — so is the Bixby button.— and the body of the phone is IP68 water-resistant.
Performance and promise
The Galaxy S10 5G, like its siblings, is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor with 8GB of RAM. Like the S10 Plus, the 512GB and 1TB storage size options come with 12GB of RAM.. This is a very powerful processor for Android phones at the moment, so expect it to handle anything.
What really sets the phone apart is the modem inside — the Qualcomm’s X50, which enables the phone to connect to 5G networks when they come online, though it will fall back to 4G LTE when 5G is unavailable. The Galaxy S10e, S10, and S10 Plus do not have this modem, so they will always be stuck on 4G LTE. But as carriers work on 5G, 4G LTE speeds are improving, and these phones are capable of supporting 2Gbps LTE speeds.
Speeds between 1 to 10Gbps
Theoretically, 5G on a supported phone like the Galaxy S10 5G will let users hit speeds between 1 to 10Gbps, but this depends on how many people there are in the area, the spectrum being used, and a whole host of other conditions. Chances are, users will steadily get 50Mbps or higher. It’s quite like how 4G LTE’s max speed tops out around 300Mbps, but on average most people only see somewhere between 15mbps to 50mbps.
While some U.S. carriers will be bringing 5G networks online this year, it will be in certain areas in select cities. For example, Sprint just announced it would bring its 5G network online starting in May for about 20 square miles in Chicago. A full nationwide rollout of 5G in US could take another two years, if not more.
What will 5G connectivity bring? On your phone, it means faster speeds and lower latency. You’ll be able to download content incredibly fast, stream higher-quality audio and video without interruptions, and eventually see enhanced applications for augmented reality and virtual reality.
Potential uses for 5G
5G is expected to be so quick and efficient it is possible it could start the end of wired connections.
By the end of 2020, industry estimates 50 billion devices will be connected to 5G.
What is 5G?
The evolution of the G system started in 1980 with the invention of the mobile phone which allowed for analogue data to be transmitted via phone calls.
Digital came into play in 1991 with 2G and SMS and MMS capabilities were launched.
Since then, the capabilities and carrying capacity for the mobile network has increased massively.
More data can be transferred from one point to another via the mobile network quicker than ever.
5G is expected to be launched in 2020 and will be up to 1,000 times faster than the currently used 4G.
Whilst the jump from 3G to 4G was most beneficial for mobile browsing and working, the step to 5G will be so fast they become almost real-time. That means mobile operations will be just as fast as office-based internet connections.
