If you're interested in Verizon's LG V50 ThinQ 5G but not interested in its price, you can save some cash when buying one. New and existing Verizon customers can save up to $450 when trading in an eligible smartphone, and new customers can save another $200 when they switch to Verizon, sign up for a Verizon Unlimited plan, and buy an LG V50 ThinQ 5G.
In order to get 5G connectivity, you'll need to be on Verizon's Above Unlimited or Beyond Unlimited plans. It normally costs $10 per month to add 5G connectivity to these plans, but for a limited time, Verizon is waiving that fee.
Verizon's 5G network is currently available in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis. It'll expand to more than 30 cities in 2019, including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Des Moines, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Phoenix, Providence, San Diego, Salt Lake City, and Washington, D.C.
LG's V50 ThinQ 5G is equipped with five total cameras. There are 12MP standard, 16MP super wide, and 12MP telephoto zoom cameras on the back of the phone as well as 8MP standard and 5MP wide angle cameras on its front. LG has also equipped the V50 ThinQ with optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization to help you capture sharper images, a Super Bright Camera that'll capture brighter photos in low light, and a manual mode that will let you adjust the shutter speed, ISO, exposure, and white balance and enable you to save photos in RAW (DNG) format.
The LG V50 ThinQ runs Android on a 6.4-inch 3120x1440 OLED screen and includes a Snapdragon 855 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. There's 128GB of storage built in and a microSD card slot if you want additional storage. LG has included a dedicated Google Assistant button, too, along with IP68 water and dust resistance, a 32-bit Hi-Fi quad DAC for improved sound using wired headphones, and a 4000mAh battery.
After launching on Sprint last month, it's nice to see the LG V50 ThinQ 5G expanding to another U.S. carrier, complete with 5G connectivity. And while Verizon's mobile 5G network is still young and only available in a couple of markets right now, you can still buy the LG V50 ThinQ and use it on 4G LTE if you're interested in it.
