The Galaxy S10 5G is now available to order from Vodafone as well as EE and Samsung direct. It'll go on full sale from 7 June in both Majestic Black and Crown Silver options (get the silver, we would).

It's available in a single configuration aside from colour, with 256GB of storage and 8GB of memory.

Vodafone's 5G launch is pegged for 3 July and EE's is already live in the UK's biggest cities. You can also order the S10 5G handset SIM-free from Samsung direct, although both EE and Vodafone have yet to announce their SIM-only tariffs so there's no current way to get it working on 5G in the UK, though that will change over the coming months. 

We've already been up close and personal with Samsung's first 5G phone - in our initial review we said it's "a lovely looking handset with a premium build quality and a luxurious finish. It's big, but if you like a large phone and you want a 5G capable device then the S10 5G is worth waiting for".

Although the handset has a very similar design to the Galaxy S10+, we expect it will be quite different inside - several vendors have remarked how they have had to redesign the internals of these new 5G phones quite significantly to cope with the increased cooling requirements.

It will be interesting to see if there's increased battery drain when they're in full flight on a 5G network.
