Although South Korea's 5G network has been technical since December 1, mobile operators delayed an official launch as there were no compatible devices ready for sale. Disagreements over pricing with the South Korean government further added the delay. South Korean regulators finally approved price plans Monday for 5G units, according to VentureBeat .
But if you are outside South Korea, wait; Samsung has not confirmed release dates in other countries for the S1
0 5G. However, if everything goes as planned, US and UK customers will be able to buy the phones later this year. Verizon, who will be the first to wear them in the United States, plans to launch 5G in Chicago and Minneapolis on April 11 and expand to more than 30 other cities by the end of 2019. Britain's customers have to wait a little longer. EE, which partnered with Samsung to sell the phones, is planning to launch 5G in London, Cardiff, Birmingham, Belfast, Edinburgh and Manchester this summer.
