Whether or not Sprint will ultimately be allowed to merge with T-Mobile
, the "Now Network" certainly doesn't want to be left behind when it comes to the nation's 5G revolution, rapidly following in Verizon's footsteps
with a limited rollout of the next-gen cellular technology in parts of four cities
If you're a Sprint subscriber (technically) covered by this initial 5G deployment, you'll obviously also need a certain super-advanced device to take advantage of the upgraded speeds and reduced network latency. While the Galaxy S10 5G
has yet to expand from Big Red
, Sprint exclusively carries the HTC 5G Hub
and LG V50 ThinQ
in the US.
Offered right off the bat at a massive discount
with 18-month Flex Lease arrangements, the 5G-enabled V50 ThinQ
smartphone is now on sale at a substantially reduced price on standard installment plans as well if you don't have a problem visiting a brick and mortar Best Buy store in your vicinity. You'll probably want to check the handset's in-store availability beforehand on the retailer's official website, where the relatively straightforward terms and conditions of the new deal are listed in short.
Normally available for $1,152 outright, the LG V50 ThinQ 5G powerhouse can be purchased at $100 off if you insist on paying the entire sum in one go. Alternatively, you're looking at total savings of $696 with a two-year device payment plan, which means you'll be coughing up a measly $19 a month instead of a whopping 48 bucks. All in all, the Snapdragon 855-packing phone with a beautiful 6.4-inch OLED display, versatile triple rear camera arrangement, dual selfie shooters, and a hefty 4,000 mAh battery will be yours for just $456.
Although the $696 savings only include a $120 Best Buy "instant" discount, as well as additional $24 monthly credits applied to your bill for the entirety of the two-year contract installment plan, this still feels like a killer deal... for the tiny portion of Sprint's customer base that can currently access 5G speeds on the fly.
