LG’s V50 ThinQ, which is likely to be announced on 24th of February, may become the world’s first 5G phone. Evan Blass @evleaks recently leaked an image of LG V50 ThinQ and affirmed that the smartphone would come equipped with three rear cameras, a status bar on the front, and a yellow 5G logo on back. OnePlus and Samsung will also be introducing their 5G smartphones in 2019, according to reports.
As LG’s V50 is based on V40 ThinQ, it will have a regular wide-angle lens, telephoto lens, and ultra-wide lens. However, these cameras won’t be protruding the body. The dual front cameras will be like V40 ThinQ’s selfie and ultra wide selfie cameras.
The LG phone will have a fingerprint reader at the rear unlike its competitors OnePlus, Huawei and Samsung who follow the trend to put together the in display fingerprint reader at the front. A report says that Samsung will be unpacking Galaxy S10 on Feb. 20 in San Fransisco.
V50 ThinQ will be sporting a 4,000 mAh battery to manage the 5G functionality, and it will be an increase of over 21 percent over V40’s 3300 mAh battery. Sprint, the fourth largest US carrier shall be introducing V50 ThinQ in its network. Sprint has sued AT&T for making consumers think that it has 5G technology under the garb of its fake 5GE brand.
LG will unveil full specifications of V50 ThinQ at the Mobile World Congress that is going to be held next week in San Francisco. But there is a good chance that this information may be leaked even before that. Now, the big question remains about the probable price. The price will depend on the fact that 5G phones could cost about $300 more than 4G LTE phones. The cost would also include the cost of 5G data plans. It does not seem that they will come cheap.
