Samsung Has Sold 1 Million Units Of Galaxy S10 5G In South Korea
In the month of February, Samsung launched its first 5G compatible smartphone which is called the Galaxy S10 5G. Due to inadequate adoption of the 5th Generation of telecommunication, the device was commercially available in limited regions including South Korea.
A report shared by Yonhap News Agency states that the Galaxy S10 5G has seen phenomenal success in the home country. According to Samsung, the sales of the flagship smartphone have exceeded 1 million since its 5th of April availability date. This is a praiseworthy feat for the South Korean Giant, Samsung that has managed to take a headstart in the expected 5G telecom revolution. The report also states that Samsung’s competitor, LG’s V50 ThinQ with 5G compatibility has also recorded notable sales in the country which have topped 2,80,000 units.
The Galaxy S10 5G measures 162.6 x 77.1 x 7.94mm and tips the scale at 198 grams. The design of the smartphone is reminiscent of the Galaxy S10+. To safeguard the device, it sports Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front and Gorilla Glass 5 on the back. The Infinity-O display on the device measures 6.7-inch and is a Dynamic AMOLED panel with a resolution of 3040 x 1440 px. It has a pixel density of 505PPI and a 19:9 aspect ratio. Like the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+, it features an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner and has IP68 certification for water and dust resistance.
The Galaxy S10 5G features quad rear cameras, unlike the triple rear camera setup found in the Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10+. This camera setup consists of a 12MP f/1.5-f/2.4 sensor, 12MP f/2.4 Telephoto sensor, 16MP f/2.2 Ultra-wide angle sensor; and a Time Of Flight(TOF) camera for 3D depth recording. The device has a dual camera setup on the front, which is comprised of a 10MP f/1.9 sensor and a secondary TOF sensor to assist with background blur in photos and videos.
The Galaxy S10 5G runs on the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC which is manufactured using 7nm fabrication process. It has an Octa-core CPU and Adreno 640 GPU. The device features the Qualcomm X50 modem for 5G support. In terms of storage, it features 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. There is no support for memory expansion via MicroSD.
The Galaxy S10 5G is powered by a 4,500mAh battery, larger than the 4100mAh present on the Galaxy S10+. The device supports 25W fast charging via the bottom mounted USB Type-C Port. Noteworthy, the premium smartphone also supports wireless charging. Like its siblings, it also has a reverse wireless charging feature.
All in all, with the new Galaxy S10 5G, Samsung seems geared up to take on the 5th gen cellular network technology.
