Rumor has it that there will be more than a 5G version of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S10, and that makes sense because it seems that the new technology initially requires an individualized model for each 5G carrier. This is a pretty big step back from 4G's current level, but remember that LTE started like that.

Anyway, one of these 5G iterations of the next flagship from Samsung to Sprint will be conducted, said the carrier today in a press release proudly. Well, the company stopped naming the device, but revealed that "an innovative, standards-based 5G smartphone" is expected to be launched by Samsung in the summer of 2019. The obvious candidate is the S10, so we do not play the sprint game and just call it.

Of course, the Sprint S10 also works in the operator's 4G LTE network, supporting the 1.9GHz (Band 25) and 800MHz (Band 26) and other LTE bands for roaming.

In the first half of this year, Sprint will launch its 5G mobile network in nine cities: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.

Sprint is also working with LG to build a 5G phone that companies say could be the first company to hit the US market. In November, Sprint announced that it is working with HTC on a 5G mobile hub.
