AT & T launches its first true 5G phone, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, on June 17th. Although do not be too excited; You will only be able to get one if you are part of the AT & T Development Program or AT & T Business Client.
The 5G compatible phone, which debuted last month for Verizon subscribers who live in cities that support their 5G servicewill cost $ 999 to business users. It will also be made freely available to developers at the AT & T Shape Conference in Los Angeles on June 22. Today's announcement makes no mention of when consumers will be able to get their hands on Samsung's phone, nor how much will it cost when or if this will will. It is possible that the Galaxy Note 10 is the first publicly available 5G compatible device for all AT & T customers, as it is supposed to support the mmWave and sub-6 frequency bands.
In an unusual moment when expectations are precise, AT & T mentions in its version that professional users and developers will only be able to experience 5G in "very limited parts" of the first group of AT & T cities. As we have seen during our hands with the S10 5G in ChicagoThe mmWave spectrum on the Verizon network is quite limited, although it is also very powerful under certain circumstances. Apparently, AT & T only needs a few beta testers to make sure everything is on the right track.
