"We are proud of the work we've accomplished to bring our the first 5G smartphone to market and look forward to bringing it to everyone around the world in the coming year," said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G variant has already been confirmed - the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G 256GB variant will be priced at KRW 1,390,000 (roughly Rs. 84,600), and the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G 512GB variant will be priced at KRW 1,550,000 (roughly Rs.94,400).

As one of the only companies with an end-to-end 5G solution from chipsets, network core, radio solutions and user devices, Samsung is uniquely positioned to deliver a next-generation smartphone and network.
In South Korea, the 5G commercial network has been on air since December by all mobile operators using Samsung's 5G network core and radio solutions.
"With speeds up to roughly 20 times faster than 4G networks, consumers on a 5G network can download a full season of a TV show in minutes, play graphics-rich cloud games, stream 4K video with virtually no lag and enjoy enhanced VR and AR experiences," Samsung said in a statement.
