Samsung-branded 5G smartphones will arrive on Sprint this summer

One month after both Verizon and AT&T confirmed their partnerships with Samsung, today Sprint has announced that it will be bringing 5G smartphones from the brand to consumers starting this summer.

So far, the fourth-largest carrier hasn’t specified which models are in the works. However, one of the most anticipated models is the upcoming 5G Galaxy S10. This device, for those unaware, will sport a huge 6.7-inch display along with a quadruple-camera setup on the rear and a dual-sensor layout up front. The device should also sport a number of premium internals such as the Snapdragon 855 by Qualcomm.

In addition to the Samsung-branded models, consumers will soon see the release of an LG-branded 5G device on Sprint. Details of this model are yet to be provided but the carrier has so far confirmed that it’ll sport a “shiny” and “distinct” design. Essentially, this means that it won’t be a special version of the LG V40 ThinQ or any other LG smartphone.

Completing Sprint’s current 5G plans is its partnership with HTC. Unlike the previous two brands which are creating smartphones, though, HTC is producing a 5G mobile smart hub exclusively for Sprint. Samsung is also creating a similar product, but its alternative is rumored to be Verizon-bound.

Uh, will Sprint even have a 5g tower up at that point? I doubt it. They STILL haven't rolled out VoLTE to but a select few. They really have very little interest in being a truly competitive carrier.

VoLTE? Lol they can barely do LTE correctly let alone get everyone covered. They struggled with 4G by going with wimax instead of LTE when 4G was first announced. I don't see them doing much different with 5G.
