Samsung’s new 5G phone is useless.

Earlier this week we saw the new lineup of Samsung being revealed at Unpacked 2019. Samsung were so excited of their new phones, Samsung Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, Fold and 5G phone. The hype was pretty high and people seem excited to buy such a new-featured phone. But, the whole problem goes on the company’s new 5G device.

As the new rumours of the upcoming 5G network are coming to “shore”, Samsung made a risk and revealed their new 5G supporting phone. Although the network isn’t coming until 2020, the company wanted and achieved it, to reveal the device instead of waiting.

As we previously said, 5G network will support faster internet connections, more stable and more efficient bandwidth and more. The company however, made clear that we can buy the phone with no 5G signal supporting it yet, but with the current 4G signal active. It will be no problem for the phone and for the user to simply use that one.

Even though Verizon might argue that it already has a 5G network, it doesn’t have a 5G  network for phones. While the company did technically announce its preliminary 5G TF network to replace wired landline internet connections last fall, it’s not compatible with any Verizon mobile 5G devices. (Verizon has actually halted rolling out its home network offering until later in 2019 when the actual 5G standard equipment is ready.)

And as far as that actual, standards-based 5G NR network is concerned, the carrier has announced next to nothing about its plans.

Now, just after Samsung’s announcement of the phone, Verizon did say that it has plans to have its mobile 5G network in at least 30 cities by the end of 2019. But that’s a pretty broad timescale for not a lot of coverage, especially considering that Samsung is promising that the S10 5G will go on sale sometime “in the first half of 2019.”
