At MWC 2019, LG announced the LG V50 ThinQ. This would be LG’s first 5G smartphone and there is without a doubt a lot of pressure on the company, especially with Samsung also having launched their own 5G smartphone. The handset was initially pegged for a launch in April but was later delayed, and now it looks like we have a launch date to look forward to.
LG has confirmed that the LG V50 is set to launch on the 10th of May, but we should point out that the launch of the handset is for the South Korean market. LG has yet to confirm when the phone will be released in the US, but the launch in South Korea does seem to suggest that a US launch might not be too far behind.
It was also previously reported that the handset would be launched on both Sprint and Verizon where it might be coming in the summer of 2019, but we’ll have to wait for LG to confirm the dates. For those who are learning about the LG V50 for the first time, here’s a quick recap on what the phone will be packing in terms of features.
As expected of a flagship, the LG V50 will be equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. LG had also boasted that the phone will come with a new cooling system, and it will also pack a 6.4-inch QHD+ OLED FullVision Display along with DTS:X audio technology and a triple camera setup on the back.
LG will also be selling an optional accessory that turns the handset into a pseudo foldable phone with a secondary display. There is no word on pricing for now.
