If you’re shopping about for a second smartphone but don’t want to spend too much money, or a phone for your kid that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, then you might be interested to learn that LG has recently announced a new smartphone in the form of the LG Zone 4 that will be launched on Verizon.

As you can see based purely on the design, this is clearly not a high-end smartphone. It will feature a 5-inch 720p HD display and under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Not the most powerful smartphone that we’ve come across, but we reckon it should be more than capable of getting the job done, at least if you’re not planning on doing much with it.

There will also be an accompany 8MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing camera, a fingerprint sensor (a nice surprise for a budget handset), and a 2,500mAh battery to top it off. Unfortunately for some reason the handset only comes loaded with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, which considering the fact that Android P’s developer preview has already been released makes us wonder why it did not come with Android 8.0 Oreo at the very least.

However if this sounds like a phone you wouldn’t mind getting, the LG Zone 4 is priced at $114.99 and you can get your hands on it via Verizon’s website.
