Sprint and LG Confirm 5G Smartphone in 2019, Sparse on Details

Sprint and LG say they'll offer the first 5G phone in the first half of 2019

According to the mobile network company, the 5G rollout will bring faster and more reliable internet speeds to its customers.

Analyst reports earlier suggested that smartphone makers will be offering 5G smartphones at exorbitant prices in the initial phase of 5G launches.

LG Q8+ With Snapdragon 625 Spotted On Geekbench: Launch Imminent? . It did say that more details would be announced later this year.

Incidentally, Sprint is considering a $26 billion merger with rival T-Mobile US as part of its strategy to win in the 5G space.

Hours later, Aquarius 116 people, including 67 children, from what organisers called an "overcrowded wooden boat". It is the only rescue ship in the area of the Mediterranean where migrants' vessels are known to capsize.

Sprint affirms its customers will be among the world's first to access 5G mobile connectivity, with specifications for the accompanying LG handset set to be announced later.

LG and Sprint have been working with each other for a very long time now. LG's partnership with Sprint seems to be in line with the release. One thing's for sure though, 5G smartphones are just around the corner! Users will be able to download large files and movies in seconds, and online gaming would be lag-free and super smooth. LG is in charge of manufacturing this unnamed device, thus throwing its own hat in a ring already populated by the likes of Motorola, Huawei, and Lenovo. The device is scheduled to land on the market in the first half of 2019. Samsung said its first 5G phone will not be the upcoming flagship Galaxy S10.

"LG has been working side-by-side with Sprint for almost 20 years, and we are looking forward to expanding this partnership with 5G", said William Cho, CEO and president of LG Electronics North America.

"Today's announcement brings us one step closer to putting a beautifully-designed 5G smartphone in our customer's hands", John Saw, chief technology officer of Sprint said in a statement. Meanwhile, Huawei and Lenovo are unlikely to gain support from major U.S. carriers, Samsung may skip 5G capabilities as far as the Galaxy S10 is concerned, and Apple will naturally only join the party in the fall of 2019.
