South Korean electronics company LG announced today that they would release V50 ThinQ 5G on April 19, 2019, and the price of the phone has been settled at KRW 1,199,000 (around $1050).

The price of the LG Dual Screen is set at KRW 219,000 (approximately $190). But LG Electronics said that anyone who purchases the phone by the end of May would get a dual screen accessory at no additional cost.
