Sprint's first 5G devices get a release date
« on: May 17, 2019, 12:12:06 AM »

Mere hours after Verizon kicked off actual Galaxy S10 5G sales and more than a month after Big Red flipped the 5G switch in parts of two markets for the Moto Z3 only, Sprint is finally following suit with a number of exciting related announcements.

The "Now Network" will begin to take pre-orders for its first two 5G-enabled devices tomorrow, May 17, with commercial availability then set for May 31 in four major cities. A slew of other early 5G markets are vaguely scheduled to join the ultra-high-speed party in the "next few weeks", but let us first focus on the 5G products Sprint is throwing in the arena against the (temporarily) Verizon-exclusive Galaxy S10 5G.
As expected, the V50 ThinQ 5G that recently made its debut in Korea following a short "optimization" delay is slightly cheaper than Samsung's first 5G-capable smartphone, at a recommended retail price of $1,152. If that still feels a little rich for your blood, Sprint can hook you up with a massive "limited time" discount, letting you have this Snapdragon 855 beast at only $24 a month without needing to pay a dime upfront as long as you don't mind signing an 18-month lease.
