The problem is that there are several different types of 5G networks, like "sub-6GHz" and "millimeter wave," and Qualcomm's X50 modem only supports the millimeter wave 5G spectrum.That's actually fine for some of the mobile 5G networks that currently exist and are rolling out in 2019, but carriers will start using the sub-6GHz 5G spectrum over time as they expand their 5G networks. That means Galaxy S10 5G users will be able to enjoy some earlier 5G networks from their carriers, but as carriers expand their 5G networks starting in 2020, Galaxy S10 5G owners will be left in the past.
Check out which cities feature - or will feature - a 5G network that are compatible with the Galaxy S10 5G:
Real quick: What you're looking for with the Galaxy S10 5G is "millimeter wave," not "sub-6GHz" 5G.
5G really shouldn't be the main attraction for those interested in the Galaxy S10 5G.
