T-Mobile and Sprint are seeking regulatory approval for their would-be merger. Sprint is about to take the plunge on its first speedy 5G-capable smartphone, announcing plans on the very day Verizon started selling Samsung's first 5G phone in the U.S. The No. 4 wireless carrier in the U.S. said on Thursday that the LG V50 ThinQ 5G will available May 31, initially to customers in Sprint's first four 5G markets – Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Kansas City, Missouri. The availability date suggests that the end of May is when Sprint will flip on the switch in those 5G markets. Sprint also announced that the HTC 5G Hub for home broadband will also be available on that date. Customers can start preordering both devices Friday.
