Telstra customers who purchased the Galaxy S10+ during the eligibility period will be able to upgrade to the Galaxy S10 5G at no additional cost. These customers will have 21 days from May 28 to redeem the offer.
The Galaxy S10 5G is the first product of its kind for Samsung with new features including a larger 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display screen, a larger 4,500mAh battery with Super-Fast charging capability and advanced camera functionality.
Featuring six cameras enhanced with intelligence, the 16MP ultra-wide camera captures a 123 degree field of vision. Live Focus video helps to focus and create bokeh effects, while the new 3D depth camera detects depth, distance, height and length of objects within in the camera’s vision using Quick Measure.
Samsung Electronics Australia vice president of IT and mobile, Garry McGregor said, “The Galaxy S10 5G is designed to perform at a level that we have never before seen in a Samsung device. From its 3D Depth Camera to 5G network capability, we’re delivering the ultimate in terms of innovation, design, and experience.
”This is the most anticipated device Samsung has ever launched in Australia as it combines additions to our amazing Galaxy range but also opens the door to the opportunities that 5G experiences will bring people in future.
“With this upcoming launch, we are delivering on years of collaboration with Telstra to help break new ground in device and network performance.”
Telstra consumer segment executive, Kevin Teoh said the launch of Australia’s first 5G-enabled smartphone would mark the beginning of a new mobile era.
“This will be a game-changing moment for our customers. Telstra has been building Australia’s first 5G technology for some time, and now our customers are ready to be the first in Australia to experience this technology in the areas where 5G is now available,” he said.
“5G-enabled devices are the next step towards customers experiencing the potential of this revolutionary network technology. Faster downloads, high resolution video streaming with less buffering and better mobile gaming on the go are just the start of the network technology’s possibilities. 5G also has the potential to transform the way we all live and work.”
