Samsung, Verizon to Launch 5G Smartphone in First Half of 2019

Samsung Galaxy S10+ Leaks In Highest-Resolution Renders Yet

Up front, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus is said to feature a 6.4-inch dual-curved edge AMOLED display with a quad HD screen resolution.

An illustration depicted in the patent filing shows a Galaxy device with a fingerprint sensor on the back of the display. The renders also show the device as having a gradient-style color scheme, which is something that's been popularized by Huawei, as per Android Authority. Instead, the author of the unofficial renders is understood to have been inspired by the Ice Blue variants of the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ which Samsung brought to China less than a month ago. Thanks to that, the company's CEO Park Jung-ho was even able to use a Samsung 5G phone prototype mobile phone to make the first 5G video call.

The Galaxy S10 line is expected to do away with the front-facing iris scanner of Samsung's recent flagships as several sources already claimed it will instead be positioning an ultrasonic fingerprint reader as its primary screen-unlock method, though it's still likely to feature some form of facial recognition support.

LetsGoDigital recently outed patent applications that suggested Samsung is working on a number of different design ideas for the Galaxy S10.

"We're proud to work alongside innovative partners like Verizon and Qualcomm Technologies to deliver a smartphone that will fundamentally transform how people work and play", said Justin Denison, Senior Vice President, Mobile Product Strategy and Marketing at Samsung Electronics America.

Verizon will start offering its first 5G smartphones in the first half of next year after announcing a new partnership with Samsung.

Verizon has worked closely with Samsung on its 5G rollout, making use of the Korean manufacturer's networking equipment in its deployment and device testing. Let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.

The big question is whether the 5G upgrade will matter in the smartphone market.
