Sprint promised in August of last year that its first 5G smartphone will be built by LG Electronics, set to arrive in the first half of 2019. Today, a render showing off the supposed LG V50 ThinQ device with Sprint's 5G branding on the back has surfaced online, courtesy of long-time leaker Evan Blass (@evleaks).
No additional details were provided by the leak except for an overview of the upcoming phone's design and camera specs. Based on the image, the V50 ThinQ will likely have a triple camera on the back and a dual lens setup on the front in line with its predecessor that was announced in October 2018. Additionally, the device may also feature a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor like the V40 ThinQ.
Also, the rear panel of the V50 ThinQ doesn't seem to differ by a long shot from the V40 ThinQ in terms of design at least. While not much is known from the leak, more official details about the upcoming phone are likely to surface later this month at the Mobile World Congress along with the G8 ThinQ, if a recent announcement from the company is any indication. That press release revealed information about an unnamed LG smartphone that will provide 5G support, plus a bunch of other key specs including Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC and a 4,000mAh battery.
