Range-topping 5G Galaxy S10 model to be Verizon exclusive at first

Range-topping 5G Galaxy S10 model to be Verizon exclusive at first
This is what the device could look like

Rumors of a Galaxy S10 model with 5G support first emerged way back in September. Since then, the expectation has been that it will land on all major carriers upon release. But it turns out that this may not entirely be the case.

According to Max Weinbach, the top-of-the-line 5G Galaxy S10 which is rumored to come complete with a whopping 1TB of internal storage and 12GB of RAM will be available as a Verizon exclusive for the first few months.

Reportedly, Big Red won a “bidding war” with Samsung against the other major carriers for exclusive rights to the model. However, the cheaper variants are not included in the deal. As a result, the expected 8/256GB and 8/512GB versions should be available to purchase at T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T, in addition to Verizon.

Aside from the impressive storage configurations, the 5G Galaxy S10 is expected to make its debut with a huge 6.7-inch curved AMOLED display, a whopping four rear cameras on the rear, and two selfie sensors up front. The smartphone will also come powered by the Snapdragon 855 in the US along with the 5G Snapdragon X50 modem.

Like the regular models, Android 9 Pie straight out of the box complete with the One UI overlay will be present. This is rumored to be backed up by a humongous 5,000mAh battery. The 3.5mm headphone jack is also expected.

According to rumors, the 5G Galaxy S10 won’t make an appearance at Samsung’s Unpacked event on February 20. Instead, the device will make its debut sometime during the second quarter ahead of its release.

5G isn't even a thing yet so why bring this out and make it exclusive? Hopefully when the beast drops in September all this exclusive mess will be finished.

Well said man. Samsung should’ve learned from this a while ago. I hope it’s just a rumor that doesn’t pan out.
