• Customers can get 5G ready1 with the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G now available from O2
  • Available on O2 custom plans, including £54.64 per month for 20GB data with a £30 upfront payment2
  • O2 will switch-on its 5G network in October 2019, going live in 20 towns and cities this year and a total of 50 by summer 2020

O2 has brought forward the date that customers can get 5G ready with the new flagship device from Samsung, the Galaxy S10 5G, now available from today online and in-store on O2 custom plans.

The Galaxy S10 5G features the largest-ever display on a Galaxy S series device, a 6.7-inch Infinity-O Display; 6 cameras with incredible low-light capability, 3D Depth Cameras on both sides and an Ultra-wide lens for capturing professional-looking shots; and an impressive 4,500mAh (typical)3 battery with Super-Fast Charging.

With O2’s custom plans, customers can choose how much they want to pay upfront, the length of their Device Plan, selecting anywhere between three and 36 months (in one-month increments), as well as having the option to flex their data allowance up or down every month to suit their needs.

A selection of 4G tariffs will be available from O2 for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, including £54.64 per month for 20GB of data with a £30 upfront payment.

O2 customers will benefit from 5G connectivity from October this year. Britain’s best network for coverage4 will initially switch on across key hubs in areas of Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh, London, Slough and Leeds, ensuring 5G is available where customers need it most. O2’s 5G switch-on will see faster speeds and new opportunities reaching customers in 20 towns and cities by the end of the year and 50 by summer 2020.

Once launched, customers need only move to a new 5G tariff, swap to a 5G sim and update their phones software. They’ll then be able to jump on 5G everywhere there’s coverage.

Customers who want to upgrade early from another handset need only pay off the remaining balance of their Device Plan to stay bang-up-to-date. Customers who want to keep their phone after their custom plan finishes will only pay for their monthly Airtime Plan from that point. Terms and conditions apply, visit o2.co.uk/terms for full details.

What’s more, by recycling an old device through O2 Recycle, customers can receive a cash payment which can be used toward their upgrade. This could be up to £180 for the Samsung Galaxy S9 64GB. Customers can recycle in-store or online at www.o2.co.uk/recycle.5
