Galaxy S10 5G: The most advanced Galaxy S10 model, but not sold in Vietnam
Besides the models that users are familiar with such as Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 + and Galaxy S10e, this year, Samsung also released a special version of this model is Galaxy S10 5G.
Galaxy S10 5G is the most advanced model in Samsung's Galaxy S10 series. This model is equipped with many features that the Galaxy S10 + does not have, such as the depth sensor camera (ToF), which supports the recording of AR fonts, and the 6.7-inch screen with a huge 4500mAh battery with 25W fast charging capability and Of course, support 5G network.

With such outstanding features, Galaxy S10 5G is priced higher than Samsung Galaxy S10 +. In the US, if the Galaxy S10 + is priced at 1000 USD, then Galaxy S10 5G is up to 1300 USD (30.3 million) for 256GB version. Similarly in Korea, the S10 5G is also priced at 1.39 million won (VND 27.3 million).
In Vietnam, users cannot buy Galaxy S10 5G at major dealers because Samsung does not sell the device in Vietnam. In fact, the Galaxy S10 5G is limited to a few countries around the world that have been deploying 5G networks.
Not sold genuine, but Galaxy S10 5G is still available in the market with cheap price
Although not officially distributed, however, going through small phone shops or technology trade forums, it is not difficult for users to buy a Galaxy S10 5G. The 5G Galaxy S10 in Vietnam is mostly portable from Korea.
The irony is that the price of portable Galaxy S10 5G in Vietnam is significantly lower than the foreign market. With about 14-16 million dong, users can own Samsung's top super product in Vietnam, half cheaper than the price in the US or South Korea. Compared to the two lower models Galaxy S10 and S10 + are sold by Samsung genuine in Vietnam for about 16-20 million VND, Galaxy S10 5G is also cheaper.

On a technology trade exchange forum, the Galaxy S10 5G is even cheaper
Many people are concerned that the Galaxy S10 5G will not be able to operate in Vietnam because our country has not implemented 5G network, but in fact, this machine is capable of backward compatibility with 4G / 3G / 2G networks earlier, so So users can still use completely normal.
Such cheap price, whether Galaxy S10 5G has any disadvantages?
Despite the terrible configuration and cheap price, the portable Galaxy S10 5G still has some problems that users need to keep in mind.
First, the Galaxy S10 5G does not support 2 SIM and memory cards. The lack of memory card support is acceptable because Samsung has built in this device with a minimum of 256GB internal memory. However, the device does not support 2 SIM may be a weakness of this machine for some people.
The SIM card of S10 5G can only contain 1 SIM card, which means that it does not support 2 SIM or memory card
Secondly, 5G Galaxy S10 will not receive some incentives of genuine machines: Galaxy Gift and Galaxy Elite (merchant waiting room). In addition, users will also have difficulty using the Samsung Pay payment feature.
Thirdly, it is also the thing that we think is the biggest: because it is portable, so the quality and warranty of the machine depends very much on the seller. The smaller the size of the seller, the more warranty is not guaranteed. Some small individuals only "spend" for about 1 week, while the stores only provide warranty for about 6 months. Some units also require users to purchase a "gold warranty" package to secure the source and monitor.
