LG V50 ThinQ 5G release date will be later than we thought

We were expecting to see the LG V50 ThinQ
5G
phone release on April 19, after its
MWC 2019
launch, but it seems problems with the handset’s 5G
functionality have pushed that date back.

In a post on its Newsroom,
LG has announced that the LG V50 ThinQ 5G’s release date is going
to be later, and there’s no news of when we could see it –
unfortunate for anyone looking forward for LG’s first 5G phone.

Why was the release date pushed back?

In its announcement post, LG says it “has been working with
Qualcomm and domestic mobile operators to improve 5G service”,
which implies the phone’s 5G connection wasn’t working as
intended.

However when we got hands-on with the LG V50 ThinQ
5G
, we found it had quite a few software issues, especially in
the camera, so we’d hope LG is also working hard on straightening
out this software before the phone launches.

For now we don’t know when the LG V50 ThinQ 5G will be released,
as LG didn’t announce an amended date, but since it opened up
pre-orders in Korea in early April we’d expect it isn’t going to be
pushing the date back by too long. 

We’ll keep you updated when LG announces a new release date, so
stay tuned to TechRadar for updates to the situation.
