Samsung unveils 5G phone

Samsung launched a 5G smartphone in Beijing yesterday, the first foreign brand to release a 5G model in China.

The 7,999 yuan (US$1,132) Samsung 5G Galaxy Note 10 Plus will be available next month.

“Samsung will rise up with 5G technology (in China),” said Kwon Gye-Hyun, Samsung Electronics China president.

Domestic brands Huawei and ZTE have already launched 5G smartphones in China.

In June, the country issued long-awaited 5G licenses, triggering a new market for telecommunications devices and smartphone vendors.

Samsung has already sold 2 million 5G models in South Korea, which gives it an advantage in 5G deployment, according to the company yesterday.

In 2020, more than 160 million 5G smartphones are expected to be sold, mainly fueled by demand in China, said researcher Strategy Analytics.

Samsung leads the global 5G market but Huawei will dominate in China, it said.
