Sprint And LG To Deliver 5G Smartphone During First Half Of 2019

It is 100 percent a truly integrated smartphone that we think will be the first of its kind. According to a joint press release issued today, LG will be delivering its first 5G smartphone in 2019 with the help of Sprint.

Sprint Chief Technology Officer, Dr John Saw, affirms LG's well-crafted handsets will position the carrier as one of the world's first movers in mobile 5G.

As global mobile carriers scramble to commercialize the next generation 5G network by early next year, smartphone makers are preparing to launch phones that run on 5G.

LG will announce device specifications and exact timing later. Users will be able to download large files and movies in seconds, and online gaming would be lag-free and super smooth. It'll be interesting to see if it can make good on those claims in 2019 - and what sort of hardware the LG-made device gets. Samsung said its first 5G phone will not be the upcoming flagship Galaxy S10. That's on paper, at least, and theoretically available in a handful of cities first, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Kansas, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, and Washington, D.C.

Sprint and T-Mobile are now working to persuade antitrust regulators to approve their merger, which would combine the nation's fourth-largest and third-largest wireless carriers, respectively.

"Sprint customers will be among the first in the world to experience the incredible speed, reliability and mobility of 5G on this innovative handset built for the country's first mobile 5G network when it launches in first half of next year", the USA mobile carrier said.

The race to enable 5G networks is on among carriers and manufacturers, as the technology is a huge step toward the future of the internet. It released the Moto Z3, which comes with a 5G Moto Mod.
