Sprint is offering a limited time pricing for the inaugural 5G devices. LG V50 ThinQ 5G is $24 per month with $0 down with Sprint Flex lease and 1HTC 5G Hub is $12.50 per month. Activate HTC 5G Hub with 100GB of high-speed data for just $60 per month.

Both devices offer fully integrated mobile 5G and will deliver blazing-fast speeds when Sprint begins launching 5G service in the coming weeks. Sprint expects to launch the largest initial 5G coverage footprint in the U.S. across all nine market areas. Using a key 5G technology, dual-connectivity (EN-DC), Sprint will deliver LTE and 5G simultaneously to customers' devices, enabling faster speeds and a better overall experience.
