According to a report from last week, it was rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could be launching on Verizon next month, or to be more specific, it could be launching on the 16th of May. Now according to the folks at Android Headlines, they have managed to get their hands on a render of the upcoming handset that seemingly confirms the release date.
At Samsung’s Unpacked event in February, the company announced their lineup of Galaxy S10 smartphones. Included as part of the lineup is the Galaxy S10 5G, which as the name implies is the 5G variant of the phone. Verizon had announced that they would be the first carrier in the US to offer the handset, but stopped short of actually confirming a date.

Just Kids aims to meet the needs of both the parents and their offspring as the provides the former with the Smart Family Premium suite of parental controls as standard. It’s a $9.99 per month option otherwise.
Carriers are finally stepping up now that the robocall menace has got out of hand more than it ever did before. Almost 26 billion calls placed last year were spam calls so it’s clear that something needs to be done about this. Verizon, the country’s largest mobile carrier, today announced that it’s rolling out the Call Filter service for free to all of its customers. This will help them identify […]
Earlier this year AT&T announced that they would be rolling out some changes in which on the phones of their customers, they might start to see a “5G E” icon. This stands for “5G Evolution” which isn’t actually 5G, but rather it is used by AT&T to represent their 4G LTE network that uses features like three-way carrier aggregation, 256 QAM, and 4×4 MIMO.
Carriers in the United States will be launching their mobile 5G networks this year and Verizon has now confirmed the date for its launch. Big Red has confirmed that its mobile 5G network is going to be launched on April 11th. It will also begin to sell the 5G Moto Mod for the Moto Z3 so that users can actually take advantage of 5G speeds.
When the Samsung Galaxy Fold was officially announced, it was revealed in the press release that the phone would be coming to AT&T and T-Mobile, which meant that Verizon and Sprint were potentially left out of the loop. However thanks to digging by XDA developer deadman96385, perhaps Verizon and Sprint customers can expect the phone as well.
Many smartphone manufacturers are out in full force at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona with their 5G smartphones and LG is one of them. The LG V50 ThinQ 5G is the Korean conglomerate’s first smartphone to be compatible with the next-generation network. It will be exclusive to Sprint initially but Verizon has also confirmed that it will eventually begin selling the device.
2019 is the year that 5G takes off. Carriers in the United States will soon be flipping the switch on their commercial networks. Smartphone manufacturers have already started unveiling devices that will be capable of running on those networks. To that end, Verizon has announced that it will be deploying its 5G network in 30 cities across the United States this year.
Samsung just took the wraps off its latest smartphones in the form of the Galaxy S10 lineup, and unlike other companies who are planning on launching a separate handset from their flagship lineup with 5G, Samsung has opted to launch a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10. For those who are interested in getting their hands on the device, then Verizon might be the carrier to keep an eye out […]
HMD Global confirmed a few days back that it’s going to be selling its devices through carriers in the United States as well. It has inked an agreement with Verizon for this purpose and the first device has quietly gone on sale now. The Nokia 2 V is not one of HMD’s more powerful devices, but it’s certainly a start.
Last year carriers began rolling out “5G” for homes. Verizon was one of those carriers where they started to offer users “5G”, although technically it was not 5G, at least not according to the standards. Verizon did state that they would be upgrading them to standards-based 5G when the hardware became available, but now it seems it won’t be anytime soon.
HMD Global has done a good job of reviving the iconic Nokia brand for smartphones. It has been able to achieve this by putting out well-made devices with reasonable specs and affordable price tags. The company is now getting serious about selling its wares in the United States. For that reason, it has inked agreements with carriers in the country to sell devices through them.
Verizon quietly launched a started called Visible last year. It initially operated on a model which required users to bring their own device to the network. So users would have to take their own iPhone and Visible would send them a new SIM card. That requirement is now being set aside as Visible has started selling iPhones directly.
