Sprint Product Ambassador: LG V50 ThinQ 5G!

Sprint Product Ambassador

So the fanciest thing about the LG V50 ThinQ is that it is 5G enabled. It's a fine phone even on 4G, and now I'll to experience what 5G is all about. As it was announced today - 5G is turned on in Chicago! 


But first, what is 5G? From our press release: "Using a key 5G technology, dual-connectivity (EN-DC), Sprint can deliver 4G LTE and 5G simultaneously to customers’ devices, enabling download faster speeds than before and a better overall experience on capable devices." 


And it is now in Chicago: "True Mobile 5G from Sprint is available from the historic IL-64 in the north to Stevenson Expressway in the south, and as far as California Avenue in the west to the periphery of Lake Michigan in the east. Sprint 5G covers popular destinations such as Magnificent Mile, River North, Millennium Park, River Front, The Loop and Grant Park, as well as the neighborhoods of Gold Coast, Old Town, West Loop, Ukrainian Village, Medical Village, University of Illinois at Chicago, South Loop and more." 


And the LG V50 ThinQ is ready for it! And if you are in Chicago, you will be able to get one. "Tomorrow, Friday, July 12, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, HTC 5G Hub and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will be available in select Sprint retail stores in Chicago. In addition to select retail stores, customers in all Sprint 5G markets can also order 5G-capable products by visiting or calling 1-800-SPRINT1. Visit for more information on Sprint 5G coverage. Sprint will expand LG V50 ThinQ 5G and Samsung Galaxy S10 5G availability nationwide to Sprint stores beginning on July 19." 


Look for my tests and speeds over the next few weeks! Let's light it up Chicago! 


The Product Ambassadors are Sprint employees from many different parts of the company that love technology. They volunteer to test out all sorts of Sprint devices and offer opinions freely to the Community. Each Product Ambassador shares their own opinions of these devices, therefore the information in this post does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Sprint. The PA's do not represent the company in an official way, and should not be expected to respond to Community members in an official capacity. #sprintemployee
