LG V50 ThinQ 5G Reaches Verizon Shelves on June 20

Back at MWC 2019, LG took the wraps off the V50 ThinQ, an attractive thin-bezel smartphone with high-end specs and 5G connectivity built-in. Well, this device is now reaching Verizon’s shelves tomorrow i.e. June 20. The revelation was made by Verizon’s “Up to Speed” video from June 18 and subsequently by the carrier’s official media release. It is important to note that Sprint is already selling the handset since the end of May.

This launch makes the V50 ThinQ one of the few devices on Verizon’s networks to feature 5G connectivity by default. Undoubtedly, this is also one of the most expensive phones available right now, barring Apple and Samsung flagships. Surprisingly, despite the $999.99 price tag, this is one of the cheapest 5G handsets available in the market. So what else are you getting for that price tag?

The V50 ThinQ comes with a 6.4-inch P-OLED display with a resolution of 3120 x 1440 backed by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5. In the CPU department, the V50 ThinQ is packing the octa-core 7nm Snapdragon 855 SoC, coupled with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.

The camera setup here is slightly elaborate and involves three sensors on the back including a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, a 12MP telephoto lens, and a 12MP standard lens. On the front, there’s a standard 8MP camera and a 5MP wide angle sensor with 21mm lens.

LG is using LG UX 8.0 with this smartphone which runs on top of Android 9.0 Pie. A massive 4,000 mAh battery makes sure your phone stays juiced up for long intervals. The battery supports 18W fast charging (Quick Charge 3.0) by default, letting you charge up to 50% of its capacity in only 36 minutes. It’s certainly an interesting smartphone and makes no compromises in the hardware department.

Any takers?
