The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S10, the next flagship phone of the South Korean multinational, would be imminent. That is why every new rumor about him arouses the immediate interest of all the fans of the brand. In recent days we learned new features that would come with its launch, as its possible design and, in addition, the different variants in which it would be presented.
In context, the Asian giant would present four variants and one of them with the particularity of having as a special feature the incorporation of 5G wireless technology. Much was said about this new model, whose key name was identified as Bolt, since it would be one of the first terminals that this mobile technology would use, a few years after its final deployment.
However, as XDA-developers has been able to tell after a short investigation, the Samsung Galaxy S10 “Bolt” would not be a smartphone of the company, but a Wi-Fi modem compatible with this wireless 5G connectivity technology.
The Samsung Galaxy S10 with 5G is actually a Wi-Fi modem with that technology
At the time, the news that one of the variants of the Samsung Galaxy S10 would come with the support for 5G technology aroused the interest of many fans and specialists who echoed the novelty. This generated uncertainty and, of course, the need to know much more about the matter.
That’s why the portal tracked the model number SM-V570V in the Wi-Fi Alliance (the certification body of this technology) and found a real surprise: Samsung registered this identifier and also the SM-V570N, but associated with two Wi-Fi modems with 5G connectivity, Android 9.0 Foot, battery and a specific processor, depending on the region (Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 for the United States and an Exynoss for the global version).
One of the curious data that emerges from the research is that the final letter of each identifier (the N and the V) have never been used to designate a model number corresponding to a smart mobile phone. But, Samsung has previously registered with these characters to a 5G modem presented in August last year, which reinforces the hypothesis.
The company wants to present the models of the Samsung Galaxy S10 in the prelude of the Mobile World Congress 2019, to be held in Barcelona. But, surely, we will have to wait a little longer so that we can really count on a Samsung terminal fully compatible with 5G technology.
