Samsung Electronics Australia today announced that the highly anticipated Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be available in Australia from May 28 through Telstra and Samsung Experience Stores. The Galaxy S10 5G is the first product of its kind for Samsung that introduces new features to the Galaxy S10 range including a larger screen, incredible camera functionality for photography and videos and a bigger battery¹.

Telstra customers who purchased the Galaxy S10+ during the eligibility period earlier this year will be able to upgrade to the Galaxy S10 5G at no additional cost. These customers will have 21 days from May 28 to redeem the offer.²

The Galaxy S10 5G builds on the most popular features of the Galaxy S10 range which celebrates a decade since the launch of the first Galaxy smartphone. It has been designed for users who want access to the ultimate Samsung device performance and combines 5G and 4GX network capabilities to help provide customers with high-speed mobile wherever 5G and 4GX is available³. It also delivers the richest feature set ever offered in a Galaxy smartphone, including a 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display⁴, 4,500mAh battery with Super Fast charging capability, ⁵ and an incredible camera experience.

Featuring six cameras enhanced with intelligence so users can take incredible photos and video. The 16MP Ultra Wide Camera captures a 123 degree field of vision so users can photograph a stunning range of content from expansive landscapes, to fun social settings. The camera also offers Live Focus video which helps to focus and create bokeh effects to make the subject stand out. With a new 3D Depth Camera, users can also detect depth, distance, height and length of objects within in the camera’s vision using Quick Measure.

The Galaxy S10 5G rear camera capabilities received an overall DxOMark of 112, with a score of 117 for its amazing still camera performance, as well as being the first smartphone to receive a DxOMark of 100 for its video camera capabilities⁶. The front selfie camera scored 97.⁷

Garry McGregor, Vice President of IT and Mobile, Samsung Electronics Australia said: "The Galaxy S10 5G is designed to perform at a level that we have never before seen in a Samsung device. From its 3D Depth Camera to 5G network capability, we’re delivering the ultimate in terms of innovation, design, and experience."

"This is the most anticipated device Samsung has ever launched in Australia as it combines additions to our amazing Galaxy range but also opens the door to the opportunities that 5G experiences will bring people in future."

"With this upcoming launch, we are delivering on years of collaboration with Telstra to help break new ground in device and network performance." McGregor added.

Telstra Consumer Segment Executive Kevin Teoh said the launch of Australia’s first 5G-enabled smartphone would mark the beginning of a new mobile era.

"This will be a game-changing moment for our customers. Telstra has been building Australia’s first 5G technology for some time, and now our customers are ready to be the first in Australia to experience this technology in the areas where 5G is now available," Mr Teoh said.

"5G-enabled devices are the next step towards customers experiencing the potential of this revolutionary network technology. Faster downloads, high resolution video streaming with less buffering and better mobile gaming on the go are just the start of the network technology’s possibilities. 5G also has the potential to transform the way we all live and work."

Out-of-the-box, the Galaxy S10 5G will also unlock new experiences for customers thanks to high speed download speeds made possible through the 5G network.3 For example, the ability to download a full-length feature movie to your mobile device in seconds and enhancing applications that demand high volumes of data like AR, VR, gaming and video conferencing.

The device will be available with 256GB or 512GB memory variants. Two colour options will also be available, these being Crown Silver for the 256GB variant, or Majestic Black for the 256GB and 512GB variants.

Mobile plans will be announced closer to the local on-sale date of May 28.

Telstra initially is deploying 5G into its mobile network in the major capital city CBDs and other select high traffic areas and will be progressively rolling out to other areas. Find out more about Telstra’s 5G at www.telstra.com.au/coverage-networks/5G.
