Update, June 18, 2019 (12:40 PM ET): We now have a confirmed date for the launch of the LG V50 ThinQ 5G on the Verizon network: June 20. Read below for more info on how to get it!
Original article, May 13, 2019 (12:00 AM ET): 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.
Verizon will carry the LG V50 starting on Thursday, June 20. You can pay $41.66 per month for 24 months on a Verizon Device Payment plan if you wish, or you can pay for the phone outright at a price of $1,000. You can save up to $450 off the V50 by trading in your current phone and, if you switch to Verizon from another carrier to get the V50, you will earn a $200 prepaid Mastercard. To get the Mastercard, you must switch to Verizon from another carrier, buy an LG V50 on a Verizon Device Payment plan, and subscribe to Verizon Unlimited.
You do not need to live in a 5G-enabled city to buy the LG V50 from Verizon and the phone will work on 4G LTE networks.
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.
Verizon will sell the V50 ThinQ starting on June 20. Unlike with Sprint, you will not need to live in a 5G-enabled location to buy the phone.
LG V50 price, release date, and availability in the U.K.
EE announced it will be the exclusive carrier to sell the LG V50 ThinQ 5G. There’s no word in pricing or availability, except that it will launch on EE’s 5G network “later this year.”
