We thought that TCL had hit rock bottom -- at least with regards to pricing -- with its new 10 5G UW smartphone that is exclusive to Verizon Wireless. Not only does the phone support sub-6GHz, but it also supports mmWave 5G for a mere $399. However, LG must have been sitting back and grinning, because it knew that it was about to release a bombshell with its new K92 5G.

Now, Qualcomm is looking to go further down-market to bring 5G connectivity to the masses with the Snapdragon 690 SoC.
