Sprint has said that it plans to begin deploying its 5G network in select U.S. cities in the first half of 2019, and now the carrier is talking about the first device that'll access that network.

Sprint is working with LG to launch its first 5G smartphone. Details on the device are light, but we do know that it'll launch in the first half of 2019.

With Sprint's 5G network arriving in the first half of 2019, it's good to hear that it'll have a 5G smartphone launching around that same time. A 5G network doesn't do Sprint customers much good if they can't use it, and there will likely be some early adopters that are eager to get onto Sprint's 5G network to see what kind of speeds it can offer.
