Samsung unleashed its latest Galaxy S10 flagship on the world earlier this month.
This all-new and fully refreshed smartphone is one of the best ever to come from the Korean firm with it featuring a bigger edge-to-edge display, larger battery, faster processor and a triple rear camera that can add a swathe of effects to your photos.
Samsung has already launched three variants of its S10 with the standard model sitting alongside a cheaper S10e and larger S10+.
Having reviewed these new devices Express.co.uk can confirm that they certainly worth considering but a new speed test may reveal why it’s worth holding off before making a purchase.
This premium device not only features a bigger 6.7-inch screen, larger 4,500mAh battery and four rear cameras but can also access the very latest mobile technology.
5G is starting to roll out in the coming months and a test performed by a Korean network has revealed just how fast it could be.
Using an S10 5G, SK Telecom put this yet to be released phone through its paces with the network managing a peak download speed of 1.5Gbps.
At that rapid pace, it would take just a few seconds to beam a full HD movie to the phone.
That may sound fast but things could get even better with the network saying that hope to get speeds to increase past the 2.5Gbps barrier.
To put that into some perspective, the average 4G phone can currently access speeds of just 30-50Mbps with an HD movie taking around 10 minutes to download.
UK networks including EE, Vodafone and O2 have all committed to launching 5G in the UK and it seems the S10 will be one of the very first devices to launch alongside this new technology.
Although this is clearly good news for Samsung fans there’s currently no word on price.
However, with the S10+ already one of the most expensive phones Samsung has ever made we not expecting it to be cheap.
Some networks have also confirmed that will be changing a premium to access 5G so this could be a very expensive gadget.
With an S10 5G launch expected in the summer there’s not long to wait and if you want to one of the first to try these super-fast speeds it might be worth waiting for.
