Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Plus Line Could Include 5G, As Leaked Code Suggests

Code first discovered hidden in an upcoming Galaxy S9 Plus update suggesting that Samsung, the South Korean firm is planning to release a 5G variant of the Galaxy S10 next year. As reports surfaced and claimed by the source XDA-Developers echoing previous rumors on Samsung’s upcoming connectivity in one variant of its 2019 flagship handset.

Fortunately, there would be four new models of the next-generation phones that seem to be in production. The code today uploaded refers to them as “beyond 0” (expected to be an entry-level model), “beyond 1” (the standard S10), “beyond 2” (likely be the S10 Plus), and finally, “beyond 2 5G” where “beyond” is the rumored codename for the S10 lineup.

In fact, at the beginning of 2018, Samsung successfully revealed some of the manufacturers of Galaxy lineup for this year. Similarly, it did, and the codenames also include “q” variants running Qualcomm Snapdragon chips refers to as opposed to Samsung’s own Exynos chipset, says XDA.

All that means, there should be both a Qualcomm and an Exynos version of the 5G S10 coming, although it’s likely to be the Qualcomm model that makes its way to the US.

According to Samsung’s release schedule appears to mirror the state 5G will be in by mid-2019 when the S10 is expected to be released. Each of the majority of operators aiming to have launched 5G services in some form by the end of 2019, for example, HMD Global model Nokia 9. They are unlikely to offer exhaustive coverage, and the actual utility of a 5G handset is likely to be low.

While Samsung is rumored to be planning to produce 5G versions of the S10 in more limited quantities, according to The Bell.

If Samsung does so, then S10 to be the first 5G handset, and this latest news suggests that’s because another handset might beat it to the punch rather than because the technology won’t be ready in time for its next flagships.
