Samsung's S10 5G phone sits in a cupholder at U.S. Bank Stadium as a speed test is displayed on the screen. The phone downloaded data at the rate of 800 megabits per second. That's more than 10 times the 60 megabits per second speed that is typical on 4G phones.

Next-generation wireless technology took another step forward Thursday as the first smartphone with built-in 5G technology arrived in stores - and Minneapolis was one of the few places to test it out.

Samsung Electronics Co. introduced its model S10 5G around the U.S. But for the moment, the phone, which has a base price of $1,299, can achieve 5G speeds only in Minneapolis and Chicago.
