Verizon on Thursday began offering its 5G-enabled version of the Samsung Galaxy S10 smartphone.
Available in Majestic Black and Crown Silver options, the phone packs a 6.7-inch display and runs Android 9 Pie. The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G comes in two storage options: 256GB and 512GB. As a refresher, this version of the device does not have a microSD expansion card slot.
The phone costs a pretty penny, to be sure, with prices starting at $1,300. And, when you consider its 5G tech only works in select markets, it doesn’t make sense to pick this one up yet. Nevertheless, if you live in one of the cities with Verizon 5G support, and must have the newest and best from Samsung, here’s what you can expect to spend.

- 512GB Galaxy S10 5G – $1,400, or $58.33 per month for 24 months on Verizon Device Payment
