The recently 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
Sprint’s current pre-order LG V50 price tag is $24 per month with $0 down with a Sprint Flex 24-month lease plan. This is just for a limited time, and the carrier says that is half of its normal lease price. That would put the normal, non-contract price, of the phone at $1,152.
LG V50 release date and availability in the U.S.
The LG V50 will be available first in the U.S. on Sprint, where the phone will use the carrier’s 2.5GHz spectrum. Pre-orders are now live, but you can only purchase the phone in Sprint’s first four 5G cities of Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City, with more cities to be added later in 2019. The phone will officially go on sale May 31 via Sprint.
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.
