Samsung Galaxy S105G Mobile Visual Chinese Data Map
Samsungs Galaxy S105G mobile phone has been sold by Verizon, the largest mobile operator in the United States, more than a month after its appearance in Korea, according to the Korean Central Daily. Sprint, the fourth-largest U.S. carrier, also announced that it would begin selling LGs 5G V50ThinQ later this month.
Verizon customers can buy S105G phones with 256 gigabytes of storage for $1299, although 5G services are available only in parts of Minneapolis and Chicago, and when users are not in those areas, the signal will be converted to 4GLTE.
Verizon launched its 5G service in the United States last month, along with Motorolas Motoz 35G mobile phone. But Samsungs Galaxy S105G will be the first smartphone in the United States to receive 5G signals independently without additional modems and other devices.
According to a CNBC report, to use 5G, Verizon customers have to sign up for a special plan of $85 to $95 a month -- much more expensive than the lowest price of 5G services offered by mobile operators in Korea, where the lowest price of 5G services is $50 a month.
Meanwhile, Sprint, the fourth largest mobile operator in the United States, announced that it would start selling LGs V50ThinQ and HTCs 5GHub 5G phones on May 31. Sprint began accepting orders for both devices on May 17.
According to a report by VentureBeat, the US technology media, Sprint has already offered 5G services in four cities and says it will add five more cities in the coming weeks, including Los Angeles and New York. AT&T, another major U.S. mobile operator, says its 5G network has covered 19 cities, although it has not yet started selling 5G mobile phones.
Verizon said it would achieve 5G network coverage in 30 cities in the United States by the end of this year.
