The LG V50, which is basically an upgraded LG V40 with a Snapdragon 855 and 5G on board, arrives at Verizon this Thursday, June 20. The V50 is the 2nd 5G phone to be sold by Verizon, following May’s launch of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G.
This new LG V50 ThinQ from Verizon starts at $41.66/mo for 24 months or can be purchased for $999.99 without a contract. Don’t want to pay that much? Verizon is offering up to $450-off with trade-ins for new and existing customers, plus they’ll slash $200 off if you switch over from another carrier.
For specs, the V50 features a 6.4″ OLED display, Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, 4000mAh battery, triple rear camera, IP68 water and dust resistance, Quad DAC, and stereo speakers (full specs). It also runs Android 9 Pie with LG’s skin on top.
As a reminder, Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network is only in small portions of Chicago and Minneapolis at this time. If you buy the LG V50, the chances of you ever attaching it to a 5G network are slim. However, Verizon plans to bring 5G to 30 cities this year, including these 20. Just know that even as they rollout to 30 cities, it’ll be patchy, likely only available in downtown, highly-trafficked areas, and not anywhere near your home.
