Samsung released the 5G version of its Galaxy S10 smartphone in the U.S. last week. The world's first 5G smartphone, the Galaxy S10 5G became the first 5G phone available in the country. In Korea, it was launched early last month.
Verizon, the U.S.' largest telecommunications service provider, started sales of the phone last Thursday.
Early in April, it launched 5G service in Chicago and Minneapolis, but a 4G Motorola LTE handset along with a 5G modem was needed to use it.
CNBC reported, "Verizon began selling the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, the first device that supports its new 5G network out of the box. It follows the Motorola Z3, which also runs on 5G but only if you buy an additional $200 accessory that enables it."
