Stepping up the rollout of the 5G smartphone in the global market, Samsung said its Galaxy S10 5G is now selling in the US markets to run on Verizon’s network in Chicago and Minneapolis.

The South Korean giant launched its first 5G smartphone on home turf early in April and has introduced the device in the US with Verizon at a starting price of $1,300.


Verizon has been selling the Moto Z3, a 4G smartphone that can connect to 5G with an attachment, since April, but the latest Galaxy series is the first dedicated 5G phone in the US with an embedded modem and chipset for the new network standard, Yonhap news agency reported on Friday.

Samsung launched three variants of the Galaxy S10 in the US in March, and the 5G model completes the flagship series in the major market.

The world’s largest smartphone vendor is also set to release its 5G device in seven countries in Europe with major telecoms, starting from Britain on June 7.

Samsung is expected to launch its 5G smartphone in China later in 2019 in partnership with a local carrier, according to industry officials.

The company has promoted its “end-to-end 5G solution”, stressing its commercialization expertise in South Korea and the US to lead the 5G network market.

The South Korean giant claims a competitive edge with its own network solutions, including the Exynos line of 5G modems and radio frequency (RF) chips for 5G smartphones.

Samsung’s bid to highlight its 5G solutions also comes at a time when Huawei has been under heavy attack from the US government, which is raising security concerns over its 5G equipment.

“With the advent of 4G, speed was the only key improvement, but it is different with 5G,” Choi Won-joon, head of the flagship R&D team, said.

“We consider 5G technology to be a key underlying technology that can enable a truly new, non-mobile-exclusive broadband market.” (IANS)

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
