This year, LG showed the new, 5G-compatible V50 ThinQ on MWC 2019, but there was no word about the price or the release date at that time. Now the LG V50 has release date and price in Korea, as the LG press has announced.
The confirmed price for the LG V50 is 1,199,000, which is approximately $ 1,060 (£ 805, AU $ 1,485). The release date is April 19 and customers can get LG's Dual-Screen accessory for free with their purchase until May.
The price of the LG V50 should not be that surprising. The earlier LG V40 cost $ 900 (around £ 690 / AU $ 1260) at launch and the LG V50 is an unmistakable upgrade.
What it packaged
The Snapdragon 855 chipset of the LG V50 promises to offer fast speeds in the device, coupled with a 5G modem for faster connectivity with external providers. In addition to the brain, it has a 6.4-inch OLED display, a three-camera system at the rear, a dual-camera system at the front, an IP68 classification against dust and water, and military-grade fall protection.
As painful as a price tag of more than $ 1,000 can be, it is not surprising to see a new flagship in the last year, especially when the extra costs for the rapid introduction of 5G are taken into account.
However, the price for the LG V50 is still below the Korean price of the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. Although the news about Korean prices and release dates for each phone gives us some insight into the story of when they can be released elsewhere and for how much, the only thing that is really clear now is that neither will be cheap.
