Verizon gets another 5G phone for its fledging network: LG's V50 ThinQ, launched June 20 through Android Police .
V50 released in the United States last month as Sprint's first 5G phone, and while we've known when it was first announced that it was going to Verizon at some point in the summer, today's announcement has finally given us official release date.
The Verizon model seems to be almost identical to the Sprint version, although it seems that Verizon has switched in its specific 5G logo on the back of the unit (no word on whether it will also brighten up as the Sprint model logo.)
This means you get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB RAM, a 4,000 mAh battery, a 6.4-inch OLED monitor, a headphone jack, and five cameras: two front-facing and three rear.
The V50 is Verizon's fourth 5G-compatible phone that joins the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Moto Z3 and Z4 (both of which can access the Next-Gen network using a 5G Moto accessory).
V50 will cost $ 41.66 per. Month for 24 months at Verizon's unit payment plan or $ 999.99 retail launches on the 20th – by comparison, Sprint sells the unit for $ 1,152.
