The 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 has already made its debut on Sprint and Verizon’s network in the US. Today, T-Mobile is joining the bandwagon by announcing the launch of its 5G network and the Galaxy S10 5G.

Unlike other carriers, T-Mobile is going to offer 5G network connectivity to its subscribers at no additional cost. You obviously need to own a 5G phone to access the 5G network which at this point is the Galaxy S10 5G.

Compared to the regular Galaxy S10, the 5G variant of the phone comes with a bigger 6.7-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, a quad-camera setup at the rear which includes a ToF sensor, a bigger 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging support.

The Uncarrier is going to launch its 5G networks in the following U.S. cities on June 28:

  • Atlanta
  • Cleveland
  • Dallas
  • Las Vegas
  • Los Angeles
  • New York City

T-Mobile is even providing a 5G network map for its subscribers so that they can actually know where exactly they are going to enjoy 5G speeds.

“5G from T-Mobile is different because we have a very different plan to deliver broad, deep and transformational 5G – to everyone! Unlike the other guys, we believe 5G should cover people near and far – especially those in rural America. And we believe 5G should not cost more,” said John Legere, CEO of T-Mobile. “With this device, customers can supplement their already kick-ass LTE experience with a 5G boost in a few cities now, but if our merger with Sprint is approved, the New T-Mobile will build a 5G network for all … the kind of 5G network America deserves.”

If you are on T-Mobile’s network in the U.S. and want to buy the Galaxy S10 5G, you can get it after a down payment of $549.99 and monthly installments of $31.25/month for a period of 24 months. That’s a total of $1299.99!

Since T-Mobile’s 5G network is going to be available in limited cities, the Galaxy S10 5G is also going to be available only in those selected cities and stores where a 5G network is present.

In its press release, T-Mobile says that if its merger with Sprint is approved, it can utilize Sprint’s mid-band spectrum to deliver true nationwide 5G network.
