The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be available on Sprints 5G network starting on June 21st, with preorders opening today. The 5G network launched last month in Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, and Kansas City, and will be coming to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, and Washington, DC in the coming weeks. Full coverage information is available on Sprints 5G site. The Galaxy S10 5G joins the LG V50 and HTC 5G hub as Sprints first 5G devices.

Sprints 5G network was not first to launch for consumers in the US, nor is it hitting the gigabit download speeds that Verizons network is capable of, but when we tried it for ourselves we found that it offered far more consistent speeds, and broader coverage than its competitor. Unlike Verizons network, it was able to penetrate into buildings, meaning that we were able to actually benefit from its faster speeds while we worked inside a coffee shop.

A June 21st launch for the Galaxy S10 5G is a little later that AT&Ts June 17th launch. However, on Sprint the phone will be available to everyone, and not just to business customers or developers. Samsungs 5G handset has been available on Verizons 5G network since mid-May.

Preorders for Sprints latest 5G device are open starting today on Sprints website. The phone is available on Sprints $80 unlimited plan, which also includes a subscription to Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Tidal.
