LG launches first 5G phone in South Africa

The LG V50 ThinQ 5G is the first 5G handset available in South Africa, and will connect to the new Internet standard when it becomes available.

The LG V50 ThinQ 5G device is leading a mobile revolution as the first 5G device in South Africa. The device will give consumers the ability to enjoy all 5G has to offer as soon as service becomes available to mobile connectivity, as existing 5G connectivity in South Africa is currently fixed. LG’s first 5G handset is expected to deliver up to 20 times the speed of 4G.

With its award-winning LG OLED TV technology, the device lets users enjoy films with sharp clarity, beautiful contrast, and vibrant colour. Enjoy various contents including movies, photos, and live streaming videos more vividly with a large 6.4” 19.5:9 QHD+ OLED display.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform is purpose-built to fuel next-gen mobile experiences, providing a leap in performance and power efficiency. A smart-world of apps requires an intelligent supervisor and the 6 GB RAM will efficiently manage power-intensive applications so users can maximise on multitasking.

The LG V50ThinQ supports 4K video recording, which has double the resolution of 2K so users can experience clearer content in vivid ultra high definition video.

It has also passed 14 categories of the military standard testing including high temperature, low temperature, impact, and dust, making it IP68 certified.

The LG V50ThinQ is available in South Africa with a RRP R13,599, R549/m x 36 month tariff plan, or R699 x 24 month tariff plan – this device is exclusive to Vodacom.
