Verizon Opens Pre-Orders For Samsung 5G Phone, Adds 20 More Cities

Verizon Communications Inc started taking preorders for Samsung’s first 5G smartphone in the United States on Thursday and said it would launch the high-speed wireless service in 20 more cities after Chicago and Minneapolis.

Verizon said customers pre-ordering the device can get up to $650 off on the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G if they switch to its network and trade in their older phones.

The Samsung 5G phone, exclusive to Verizon for a limited time, will be available in the telecom operator’s stores from May 16 with a starting price of $1,299.

Users in Chicago and Minneapolis can currently use Verizon’s 5G network by using a Motorola Z3 mobile and a 5G “Moto Mod”, a physical magnet-like attachment for the phone.

Washington DC, Houston, Dallas and Boston are some of the cities that made it to Verizon’s 5G list.

Rival AT&T launched its 5G network in 12 U.S. cities in December. However, its network is available only to consumers using a mobile hotspot device, not on 5G phones.―NY Times
