Samsung has officially announced the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G price and release date, and if you were expecting a massive price hike over the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, you could be in for a pleasant surprise.
Starting April 5, the Galaxy S10 5G will be available to purchase in Samsung’s home country, South Korea, with three colours up for grabs: Majestic Black, Royal Gold, and Crown Silver.
According to Sam Mobile, Samsung is set to offer the Galaxy S10 5G in Korea first, with the price starting at 1.39 million South Korean Won (roughly $1,220, £930, or AU$1,720) for a 256GB phone and 1.55 million South Korean Won (about $1,370, £1,040 or AU$1,920) for 512GB storage.
That compares very favourably with the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, which costs $1,249 / £1,099 for the 512GB model.
Once the new handset has been released in South Korea, the United States is apparently next on the release date schedule. There’s no word yet of UK availability.
