Samsung's Galaxy S10 5G is one of the world's first devices with built-in support for the new network, but for nearly a month, U.S. customers could only get it on Verizon. Earlier this week, AT&T started selling the device as well, but only to developers and businesses, meaning that the average user was still very limited in terms of options.

Luckily, Sprint is stepping up and has now announced that the Galaxy S10 5G is now available for pre-order from its online store, with shipping expected by June 21. Sprint's variant comes in a single color option, Crown Silver, and with 256GB of storage. The standard pricing will be $1299.99, but Sprint says you can save $250 by pre-ordering. Also, if you're a new Sprint customer, you'll need to subscribe to the Unlimited Premium plan, which will cost you $80 per month.

Sprint recently launched its 5G service in four initial cities - Atlanta, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and Kansas City - and unlike Verizon and AT&T, it's betting on sub-6GHz waves, specifically 2.5GHz. This means that bandwidth may not be quite as high, but coverage should be much better than the mmWave technology of the two bigger companies. The Galaxy S10 5G will launch in those four markets at first and then come to Sprint's upcoming 5G areas in the next few weeks.

If you want to get your hands on a 5G phone and can't afford to wait, for some reason, then you can pre-order Sprint's Galaxy S10 5G here.
