Verizon Offers 5G Phone for $1,300
April 25, 2019
The 5G revolution continues. Starting
today, April 25, Verizon consumer and business customers can preorder
the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G — Samsung’s first 5G smartphone in the U.S. —
available exclusively on Verizon for a limited time. In addition,
Verizon revealed the names of 20 additional cities where customers will
get access to its 5G Ultra Wideband network in 2019, with more to come
throughout the year. These cities join Chicago and Minneapolis, the
world’s first cities to get Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband mobility
Verizon 5G: Be first to real time
Verizon, today, unveiled the names of 20 U.S. cities that will get 5G
Ultra Wideband service in 2019. They are: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte,
Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit,
Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix,
Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City and Washington DC.
Verizon previously announced it would deploy 5G in select areas of more
than 30 U.S. cities in 2019, and will roll out its 5G Home broadband
internet service in some of these markets, as well. Additional 5G Ultra
Wideband cities will be announced later this year.
5G Ultra Wideband technology uses new radio technology and device
hardware to deliver advanced capabilities to consumers and businesses.
When customers move outside Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband coverage area,
the Galaxy S10 5G hands off the signal to Verizon’s 4G LTE network, the
nation’s largest 4G LTE network.
“The Galaxy S10 5G on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network will give our
customers access to incredible speeds and the latest and greatest
streaming, augmented-reality, gaming, and consumer and business
applications that bring us into a future powered by 5G,” said Ronan
Dunne, executive vice president and president of Verizon’s consumer
group. “With the rollout of 5G in more than 30 markets by the end of
2019 and the upcoming launch of Samsung’s first 5G Galaxy smartphone, we
are pulling further ahead of the competition in 5G.”
The most powerful Galaxy S10 on Verizon 5G
Available exclusively on Verizon for a limited time, the Samsung Galaxy
S10 5G smartphone puts the power, speed and connectivity of Verizon’s 5G
Ultra Wideband network directly into the hands of consumers and
businesses. Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network provides download speeds
that are significantly faster than 4G LTE with increased bandwidth
capacity meaning more users are able to use more data in the same
location. That means access to speeds previously unheard of from a
mobile network that will change the way you use your smartphone for
work, play and everything in between2.
“5G speeds will unlock a new world of possibilities for consumers and
businesses — they’ll be able to stream, download, browse, and share like
they never have before,” said YH Eom, president and CEO, Samsung
Electronics America. “From the display, to the cameras, to the speed,
the Galaxy S10 5G is the most powerful Galaxy S series device we’ve ever
made, and it’s designed and engineered for consumers to get the very
best from their wireless network.”
The Galaxy S10 5G features a stunning 6.7” cinematic Dynamic AMOLED
display, so you can immerse yourself in a whole new way. It also
features the Galaxy S series’ most advanced, pro-grade camera system —
six lenses, including a 3D Depth Sensing camera which uses Time of
Flight technology to let you capture video with a stunning blur effect.
A powerful 4,500 mAh all day intelligent battery3 optimizes usage based
on how you live, to deliver intuitive peak performance throughout the
day. And the Galaxy S10 5G comes with two storage options — 256GB and
512GB — so you can download movies, TV and photos at hyperfast speeds
and store them all at your fingertips.
5G plans, pricing and availability
Verizon has two great deals to make it easier to upgrade to 5G. New and
existing customers can trade in an eligible smartphone and save up to
$450. What’s more, you can get an additional $200 prepaid Mastercard if
you switch to Verizon, purchase a Galaxy S10 5G on device payment plan
and sign up for Verizon Unlimited4. Finally, customers that preorder a
Galaxy S10 5G are eligible for a free VIP Kit that includes a pair of
Samsung Galaxy Buds and a Samsung Wireless Charging Battery Pack5.
5G Ultra Wideband is available only on Above and Beyond Unlimited plans
with a 5G phone. For a limited time, the Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband $10
access fee is waived — a savings of $10 a month6. Both plans include
unlimited 5G Ultra Wideband data, hotspot and 4K HD video streaming (on
4K-capable devices) when you are in 5G Ultra Wideband coverage areas7.
Business customers are also eligible to preorder the Galaxy S10 5G.
