LG’s first 5G smartphone leaked

LG’s first 5G smartphone leaked

Of course, Sprint makes sure that everyone knows the phone is 5G-capable between the status bar, the unsightly yellow logo on the back, and the very over-the-top wallpaper. According to the render, the LG V50 ThinQ is most likely to go official on the 24th of February.

Separately, ZDNet reports that LG will try to fill the foldable phone void by launching a new flip-cover attachable display for the V50 ThinQ smartphone. On the front, the device has a dual selfie camera setup, which is again similar to the LG V40 ThinQ with a standard RGB sensor and a super wide angle lens.

Leaker Evan Blass has released an image of the LG V50 ThinQ smartphone, which is expected to be LG's first 5G smartphone.

We've known for a little while now that LG would be debuting its first 5G phone this year.

LG's G8 ThinQ smartphone will have the company's Crystal Sound OLED tech it first applied in its TVs, that uses the screen as a speaker. That should allow the extra heat to dissipate without making the handset too warm.


Furthermore, in a report, an LG executive has confirmed that the LG V50 ThinQ will support 5G, while the LG G8 ThinQ will remain loyal to the LTE band. Speaking of Sprint, back in October, the Vice President of 5G development at Sprint Business, Mishka Dehghan, made some intriguing comments about the phone.

The smartphone is expected to feature a 6.3 or 6.4-inch POLED display with QHD+ resolution, protected by 2.5D curved tempered glass.

The same press release conveniently provided some of the device specs - a Snapdragon 855 processor, 4,000mAH battery and a largher vapor chamber cooling system.

5G networks will offer data speeds that could be as much as 20 times faster than 4G, opening up a whole new word of capabilities for mobile devices.
