    Reading my flipboard came across this and wonder if believable. Posted here because... will 5G phones have own section like 10e??

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonk.../#4730e8eb11b0

    Just being massively bigger with 6.7" screen is pretty much a deal breaker for me... but 5G, faster gen ram, 4 cameras and 4500mah battery for $1200?? I'd jump at a 4500mah S10+ but in the smaller + form (I can't believe I'm calling the + "smaller" )

    Agreed, too early, especially in my rural area.

    Yeah I don't see 5G being fully rolled out across nation to be noticeable for another year or two. I'm thinking the Note 10 could be packing 5G. If they include it without making you pay extra for it I'm fine with it.

    But love that we have now entered an era of battery war finally! Rumored Huawei P30 gonna have 4200ma. We are getting into solid 24-36 hour phones here.

    Waiting on Note 9 info. with 4500 in 5G, I'm optimistic on a 4200 in the Note 10 (to make room for the pen) and not make it ridiculously bigger than the current Note 9. If so then I'd have to check with my AT&T rep corp pricing on it

    I know Forbes gets criticized a lot too and never sure about them but I was just searching and they are probably regurgitating same info but other tech outlets are saying the same/similar even though i think one said 3 cameras on the 5G :/

    Unless you live in a major city, 5G is not needed, even if you do, not sure it's worth a premium. Then 6.7 inch screen is just crazy. I suppose Samsung has gotten some crazy formula with ratio to ratio to technically call it 6.7 inch. Either way, getting stupid big. I came to the 10+ from the note 9, one reason was smaller. I enjoy the smaller S10+.

    Exactly. If 5G is in my future this year it will be the folding phone or I'll wait for the note 10. I'm not even concerned about having a 5G phone for a year or two , 5G isn't going to be Nationwide for awhile, I live in a rural area, so I have time, I'm not even sure I want 5G from some of the things I've been hearing about it

    Samsung never releases prices until a day or so before they go on sale. No one knows this will be $1200. I'm going to go with $1249.99.

    I work in a major city and I'm not sure I need it....lol
    I'm all for faster speeds but don't have an issue with the way things work now.

    That is going to be Verizon. Samsung, and cell companies biggest problem. Everyone has all ready bought the S10 who wants one. Should've release the 5G version when the rest of the S10's were released (I would've gotten the 5G one). Unless they have a deal of trade in your S10+ in for the 5G version and get a certain amount off or something like that. Plus, on Verizon if you want 5G you have to pay an extra $10 a month.

    I agree , it would be nice if they allow you to trade your existing s10 for that but I'm not sure they will.
    10.00 extra not bad at all for 5g

    $10 is right now when it's so limited. I wouldn't pay for it now.

    Might want jump on that though , who knows what the price will be when it's fully rolled out and be grandfathered in at that price.
    But who knows maybe I'm thinking too far ahead lol.

    I wouldn't worry about it. The first gen 5G chips being used have a few drawbacks that are to be corrected by the gen 2 chips in devices later this year, early next year. Qualcomm has already talked about this. Just enjoy your S10's. Everyone is hyping 5G, but it's really not quite ready yet. Gen 2 5G chips will consume less battery, take up much less space inside the phone, and will not be forever tied to the carrier who sells you the device. Honestly, these first generation chips sound like a dog, and Qualcomm has all but admitted that already.

    Now I'm confused, because I've been noticing on certain cities I frequent I've already been on 5G but edge? Assuming it's edge as it's got the e after 5G? I'm on AT&T fwiw

    Just saw another thread after asking where it was brought up. I was mostly confused as I felt pretty confident it hasn't been released yet. And it's slow as balls anyway
