The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G comes to T-Mobile in Q4
Both new models support all of the tricks that T-Mobile has up its sleeve for its Advanced-LTE network. That includes 4X4 MIMO, increasing the number of data connections between cell sites and the phone. With carrier aggregation, different data channels are put together to increase the capacity and dataspeed. And 256QAM means that more data is carried on each LTE waveform. Sure, it all sounds complex-and it is. All you need to know is that your Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ will run fast and far, especially on the carrier's 600MHz spectrum. Lower-band airwaves, like the latter, run farther and penetrate buildings better than higher-band spectrum. T-Mobile says its Extended Range LTE signals travel twice as far and penetrate structures four times better than mid-band spectrum.
Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ start tonight at T-Mobile
Speaking of T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is coming to T-Mobile in the fourth quarter. Now you might recall that the wireless provider has recently had success testing 5G data sessions over its 600MHz airwaves
. And the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G will support the carrier's low band frequencies thanks to the Snapdragon X55 5G modem that is inside. This modem chip supports both sub-6GHz and ultra-high mmWave band 5G signals.
"We’re all about giving our customers options, and if you want the latest and greatest from Samsung, T-Mobile’s the place to get it. And our exclusive version of the Galaxy Note10+ 5G that will tap into both low and mid-band 5G spectrum will break 5G from the confines of urban centers and help unlock 5G for All with New T-Mobile."-John Legere, CEO, T-Mobile
T"-Mobile is still the adult in the room when it comes to bringing a real, meaningful 5G experience to America. The cracks in Verizon’s millimeter wave-only strategy are showing – and they’ll be forced to take capacity from their existing customers if they want to deliver broad 5G. Only the Un-carrier has a way to harness a full range of clear spectrum for 5G, should regulators approve our merger with Sprint. It’s taken years of dogged determination, meticulous planning, innovation on a global scale and ridiculously hard work from a ridiculously talented team... and we’re just getting started. With the Galaxy Note10+ 5G and many more devices to come, we’ll get to see it all pay off."-Neville Ray, CTO, T-Mobile
