Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G selling faster than any other 5G phone

Looks like the $1,299 price tag has not been a deterrent for mobile customers to purchase the Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G after all. Sales of the premium, 5G-capable smartphone represented one-third of all Galaxy Note 10 sales at Verizon in August, Cliff Maldonado, principal analyst and founder of BayStreet Research, told CNET sister site TechRepublic.

Verizon sold 40,000 Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G devices in August, according to Maldonado, outselling all other 5G-capable phones with Verizon and other carriers, including the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the LG V50 Think-Q. This is very impressive, given this phone has only become available on Aug. 23, along with the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus (without 5G).
