After revealing a total of four variants of the Galaxy S10 in February, Samsung launched just three weeks later, waiting until April to start selling a completely inflexible, removable, 5G-enabled model with 6.7 inches and six cameras in tow.
While numerous reports described in detail the initial success of the main line of S10, including the “e” version of standard size and respectful of the budget, we have not heard much of the overall popularity of the 5G power of any of the Two Samsung directly or market research companies. It turns out that this does not mean that the phone is a failure since it has sold more than 1 million units in 80 days of commercial availability only in South Korea.
A big hit than LG V50 ThinQ 5G
Although LG was the first of these two arch-rivals that boasted the number of their efforts to support the 5G rookie, it seems that Samsung will have the last laugh … as always. According to the Yonhap News Agency, the LG V50 ThinQ has barely reached sales of 280,000 units since its national debut on May 10, despite having apparently started off.
The company claims that the first users acquired 100,000 units in the first week, which resulted in a sales rate of over 14,000 devices a day. But if this is true and LG managed to sell 180,000 additional units in the following month, the time could be quickly reduced to 6,000 orders a day. In comparison, Samsung would have had an average of 15,000 sales of Galaxy S10 5G, which seems like a really impressive figure for such an expensive phone.
Obviously, the subsidies of the big local operators have probably played a crucial role in the success of the super-high ender, which also suggests that Samsung’s US sales figures could be considerably lower. After all, the Galaxy S10 5G is far from convenient to Verizon and Sprint, even after exchange discounts or monthly installments.
Ultimately, 5G Will Make A Change In The Mobile Industry
It’s no big secret that Samsung is working on several variants of Galaxy Note 10, including one or two widely compatible with 5G connectivity. It is interesting to note that today’s Korean media report suggests that the company could only release Note 10 and Note 5 Pro enabled for 5G in its home country, which basically tells you everything you need to know about rapid deployment and expansion of the new cellular standard around those parts.
Obviously, this will not happen in the U.S. where 5G coverage is still extremely scarce, but at some point, in the coming years, only 4G phones will be in the minority. The transition to a 5G-first sector could take more than a decade, according to some reports, but the market will get a little boost from this super-advanced technology very soon.
One million sales may not seem like much in the big scheme of things, but in addition to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10, Samsung plans to launch other devices with 5G support later this year. This includes an average ranger who may or may not be called Galaxy A90, which of course would cost much less than the Galaxy S10 5G, which would suddenly increase the attractiveness of the cell’s advancement.
In general, we have every reason to expect a small increase in global smartphone shipments in 2019 compared to 2018, followed by incremental increases over the next few years, as 5G networks will be increasingly easily accessible at all levels on lower budgets.
