The newly announced LG V50 ThinQ 5G is basically a souped-up version of last fall’s LG V40, complete with the same design and much of the same hardware. However, the LG V50 adds the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and, more importantly, it will be LG’s first 5G phone.
What’s the LG V50’s price, when will it be released, and when can you buy it? We’ve rounded up all the LG V50 availability details we could find.
LG V50 price
Unfortunately, we don’t have a specific price tag for the LG V50 at this time. The phone’s predecessor, the LG V40, launched last fall for the price of $899, but that also wasn’t a 5G-compatible phone. The price of the LG V50 could be well north of $1,000, but that’s just speculation for now.
That north-of-$1,000 price point may only be for the unlocked model though, if an unlocked model is even available for purchase. It’s also possible carriers will set their own price points for the LG V50.
LG V50 release date and availability
The LG V50 might be here before the end of June 2019, though we don’t have an exact date. It all depends on when 5G networks actually start rolling out.
The LG V50 will be available first in the U.S. on Sprint, where the phone will use the carrier’s 2.5GHz spectrum. In addition, Verizon has confirmed that it will also sell a version of the LG V50, which will work on its Ultra Wideband network. Verizon will launch its mobile 5G network in as many as 30 U.S. cities later this summer.
