Back when Samsung announced the Galaxy S10 lineup, it started with three primary variants: the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+. But there was also one more with a 5G-enabled option joining the family as well. And now you can finally pre-order it.
Verizon has an exclusivity window for Samsung’s first 5G smartphone, after which it will launch on other carriers like AT&T. Until then, though, it will only be available for Big Red subscribers. Pre-orders are officially live right now, two months after the handset was initially announced. The full retail price is set at $1,299.99 for the 256GB option, or $54.16 per month for 24 months.
If you want to upgrade to the Galaxy S10 5G with 512GB of built-in storage, you’ll need to fork over $58.33 per month for 24 months, or $1,399.99 total.
Samsung and Verizon are throwing in a pretty nice gift package for those who pre-order the handset. In this kit, you’ll find a pair of Samsung’s totally wireless Galaxy Buds earphones, a water bottle, and a wireless charging battery pack. Verizon’s offering a trade-in deal, with eligible handsets getting up to $450 off the Galaxy S10 5G’s price tag. And if you switch to Verizon to get the handset, you can get an additional $200 in a prepaid Mastercard.
Here’s the fine print: You will need to be on an Above Unlimited or Beyond Unlimited plan from Verizon to be eligible for any of this. And you will need to pay an additional $10 per month to access 5G. Verizon does say it will be waiving that $10 fee for a “limited time”, though.
So, do you plan on pre-ordering the Galaxy S10 5G?
