We've seen 5G smartphones get more and more affordable as 2020 has gone on, and today LG is launching one of the cheapest 5G devices we've seen to date.
The LG K92 5G is launching at AT&T, Cricket, and US Cellular. Both AT&T and Cricket will begin selling the LG K92 5G on November 6, with Cricket asking just $359 for the new phone.
Meanwhile, AT&T will price the K92 at $395, but for a limited time new and existing customers can get it for $5 per month for 30 months or free with eligible trade-in. To get this deal you'll need to buy the LG K92 5G with installments and be on an unlimited plan.
US Cellular will launch the LG K92 5G on November 19 for $350. New customers can get the K92 for free via bill credits when they switch to US Cellular, while existing customers can get the phone for $150 after $200 in bill credits.
The LG K92 5G's spec list includes a quad rear camera array with a 64MP main cam that has an f/1.78 aperture and 0.7 μm pixel size. There's a 5MP ultra wide camera with 115-degree field of view, too, plus a 2MP depth camera for portrait mode shots and a 2MP macro cam for close-ups.
The display on the LG K92 5G is a 6.7-inch 2400x1080 panel with 16MP hole-punch selfie camera. Inside, there's a 2.0GHz octa-core Snapdragon 690 processor paired with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 4000mAh battery. LG has included a side-monuted fingerprint reder, too, plus NFC, USB-C charging, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and Android 10.
LG's new K92 looks like it could be a great option for people looking to try 5G on the cheap. Sometimes lower-cost phones can have boring designs, but the K92 offers an interesting look with a rectangular rear camera housing and an edge-to-edge design. It's also got a big battery, a headphone jack, a decent amount of RAM for an affordable phone, and a microSD slot, all of which are nice features to have.
