5G speed with Sunrise or Swisscom
Today, up to 2 Gbit/s can be achieved with 5G - up to 10 Gbit/s are planned in the future. This also has an impact on response time, which drop from 25-35 milliseconds to just a few milliseconds. This means, more devices can transmit more data simultaneously in a 5G network. The advantage for you is that you’ll have a better reception at large events. The new 5G standard will thus offer a more powerful communication option that can go hand in hand with the growing data traffic of users and industry.
With the Samsung 5G smartphone, you have the choice between Sunrise and Swisscom as provider. Their subscriptions allow you to unlock the 5G package. Theoretically, the phone can also be used with 4G. If you're using 4G, any provider is possible.
5G with Sunrise
Interested in a Sunrise subscription? You have the choice between a Freedom or Freedom Young unlimited subscription. The 5G option is automatically activated and costs CHF 10.– extra. More details?

The Galaxy S10 5G and its camera power
The S10 5G is equipped with several lenses. The triple cam features an ultra-wide angle, a wide angle and a telephoto lens, allowing you to zoom, capture panoramas (with up to 123° viewing angle) and take great night shots thanks to the variable-aperture lens, which supports F1.5 and F2.4 modes. Samsung makes photographing easier: the live focus and built-in AI allow you to recognise and stage pictures and videos of people, etc. more effectively – and to post-edit content. Here are four versions of the same picture to illustrate the available effects: blur, spin, zoom and colour point.
While the list of features ends here with the Galaxy S10+, the S10 5G also boasts the latest 3D camera with ToF. This technology makes it possible to measure depth and distance, adding even more dimensions to photos and videos. ToF is comparable to laser scanning technology, but is able to capture an entire scene. Technically, ToF illuminates objects with an artificial light signal and the camera measures how long it takes for this signal to be reflected.
