Earlier today Verizon shared a news that they’re expanding their lineup by another two phones. Although both freshly added smartphones, the LG K20 V and the Samsung Galaxy J7 V, target at prepaid subscribers, they’re also available for customers on postpaid plans. Priced at $168 and $240 the handsets may be also bought on Verizon Edge and paid off in monthly installments.
Verizon has just added two more phablets to its portfolio. Both the LG K20 V and the Samsung Galaxy J7 V are available for pre- and post-paid customers.
LG K20 V
To begin with the LG K20 V, this 5.3-inch handset offers HD quality viewing experience and works on a quad-core Snapdragon 425 processor clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 1GB RAM. Such processing parameters surely deliver smooth Android 7.0 Nougat performance. Storage is represented by 16GB. However, this pretty basic amount of storage space may be expanded up to 2TB via microSD cards. As for optics, they include a 13MP primary snapper and a 5MP selfie camera on the front. Meanwhile, the whole thing is kept alive by a 2,800 mAh battery that should provide us with a full day of moderate usage. Surprisingly enough, the battery is a removable cell.
What’s more Verizon has just launched the first firmware update to the phablet, which is now being spreading to the carrier’s dedicated handsets over the air. Known as software version VS50111A the first OTA update for the LG K20 offers better video call performance, in particular during Wi-Fi and cellular network transition. Although of minor-character, the update is important as it also introduces regular bug fixes. Before downloading the update make sure that the battery is fully charged and that you’re using Wi-Fi connection to avoid extra charges.
Samsung Galaxy J7 V
When purchasing the Samsung Galaxy J7 V, you will get a 5.5-inch phablet with a HD screen panel that comes powered by the octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor coupled with 2GB RAM. Despite of more powerful computing parameters the phone packs amount of ROM identical to this offered by the LG K20 V and also allows for expansion. The same with OS as both phones run Android 7.0 Nougat. Powered by a quite generous 3,300 mAh non-removable battery, the device packs a combination of 8MP and 5MP rear and front camera sensors. Since Verizon is marketing the handset as a “world phone”, claiming that it should work in over 220 countries, the Galaxy J7 V is undoubtedly a great option for those who travel a lot.

The former is sold for $168 (or $99 with a 2-year activation), or for $0 down and $7 per month if you go the Verizon Edge route, whereas the letter costs $240 or nothing down and $10 each of the 24 months of the installment plan.
