South Korea’s communications industry revealed that the Samsung flagship mobile phone Galaxy Note10, which will be available in South Korea in August, will only launch the 5G version.
Yonhap News reported on the 18th that for manufacturers, the price of 5G mobile phones is higher than that of LTE mobile phones, which helps to increase sales. For communication operators, more 5G users can be attracted to the network in the short term. The industry said that mobile phones have been used for more than two years on average, and consumers do not have to stick to the LTE version when they buy new phones at high prices.
However, at present, South Korea’s 5G network coverage and communication quality are still not perfect. It takes at least one or two years to reach the current LTE level. Only the introduction of 5G mobile phones will limit consumers’ choice.
According to reports, some consumers said that 5G network has a false name, and it is unreasonable to sell only 5G mobile phones.
