There was no doubt about it and now Verizon has officially confirmed it. It will definitely be a Galaxy Note 10 5G. Come and think about it, why wouldn’t Samsung launch a 5G variant of a handset that it has always directed to power users? There is already a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 so you would of course assume that would be the case for its next phablet as well.
The next phablet, probably called the Galaxy Note 10, will not be out before the second half of this year. Much like the Galaxy S10, it can have separate LTE and 5G variants. This is why access to 5G networks is still very limited.
Verizon confirms Galaxy Note 10 5G
“The note and Galaxy will this year both have 5G”, Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg confirmed during the company’s Q1
2019 income figures. He also refers to the Galaxy S10 5G here, which will be a Verizon exclusive for a while.
This is not surprising for anyone who has followed the news in connection with Samsung’s next Note flagship. We confirmed the exclusive Galaxy Note 10 model number two weeks ago. There will be two main models of the unit: SM-N970 and SM-N975 . These will be LTE variants with different image sizes and camera sets. SM-N971 and SM-N976 will be the 5G variants of these two models.
Samsung will only offer the 5G variants in markets where next generation networks have survived. It is South Korea for now with the United States set to follow soon. 5G networks will also live in some countries across Europe during the summer.
