Update: After announcing the arrival of the Galaxy S10 5G a few weeks ago, Samsung has now said the device is available for pre-order ahead of its June 7 release date.
You can now order the 5G device through EE on a variety of contract plans or direct from Samsung for £1099. EE also today announced its 5G network will begin rolling out to six cities and the S10 5G will be one of the first phones to be able to access the new network.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G has finally been given a UK release date and if you’re eager to jump on the next-gen data service you won’t have to wait long.
Samsung has just announced the Galaxy S10 5G will be available from June 7 in the UK.
Initially, the 5G-toting device will be available on EE and Vodafone, both of which are ramping up their 5G push in the run-up to the networks finally going live in the next few months.
Announced alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10e, the Galaxy S10 5G is the biggest and beefiest iteration of the S10 series.
It has a 6.7-inch, QHD+ Super AMOLED display paired with a Snapdragon 855 chipset and 25w fast charging. There’s also a big 4500mAh battery inside.
One of the biggest unknowns about 5G so far is how it will affect a phone’s battery life, so hopefully Samsung is counteracting this by putting in the biggest possible cell.
Another bonus of the 5G version is the ToF (time of flight) camera on the back, which joins a standard, ultra wide and a telephoto camera. We’re expecting camera quality to be very similar to the other members of the S10 family.
The Galaxy S10 5G comes in Majestic Black and Crown Silver and you can pre-order it from May 22. It will go on sale on June 7 via Samsung directly, the brand’s Experience Stores plus EE and Vodafone.
