Verizon opens Galaxy S10 5G preorders as it announces 20 future 5G markets

"Many of the phones, as already I've talked about, meaning the Samsung phone, both the Note and the Galaxy coming this year, we'll both have it 5G (sic)", Verizon CEO and chairman Hans Vestberg said during a Q1 2019 earnings call (h/t: Motley Fool). But if you're willing to overlook all the real-life 5G compromises and asterisks for the sake of being an early adopter, you're no longer obligated to buy a 2018-released Moto Z3 handset with a Snapdragon 835 processor on deck and a special Snapdragon 855-powered Moto Mod.

Wildy expensive or fair enough?

If you want 512GB of storage, that'll cost you $1,399.99 or $58.33/mo.

The carrier also announced that Galaxy S10 5G preorders kick off on Thursday, with the phone launching in stores next month on May 16th.

Pricing for the Galaxy S10 5G starts at $1300 for the base model with 256GB of storage, but you can also finance that for $54.16/month. It has a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, four rear cameras, and a stupidly large 4,500 mAh battery - not to mention it supports LTE and 5G connectivity on Verizon's network.

To recap, the Galaxy S10 5G (specs) is the biggest of the Galaxy S10 family.

Unfortunately, we still don't know the full price of the S10 5G at this point, but should in a few hours. It's available in Majestic Black or Crown silver.

Pre-orders are open now through May 15 with regular sales beginning on May 16.

All in all, that means your hot new 5G-enabled S10 could cost you as little as $650, freebies included, as long as you meet all of the carrier's special requirements and have a relatively new phone in ideal working condition to trade in. Additionally, the S10 5G will be a part of the new $450-off with trade-in deal, but Verizon is adding an extra $200 prepaid gift card for Samsung's first 5G phone (device payment plan required) if you switch over from another carrier.
