Mysterious LG Zone 4 reportedly headed to Verizon
Verizon Wireless is reportedly getting ready to release a new Android smartphone made by LG. According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), this upcoming Verizon-bound handset is called LG Zone 4.
Unfortunately, at the moment, there are no details on the new phone's features, design, or launch date. Nevertheless, we know that the handset will succeed Verizon's LG Optimus Zone (2013), Optimus Zone 2 (2014), and Optimus Zone 3 (early 2016; pictured above). But the new device will drop "Optimus" from its name. As you may know, Optimus is a name that's been in LG's portfolio since the company launched its very first Android phones, way back in 2010, though it hasn't been used on flagship models since 2013.
Since all its predecessors are entry-level handsets, it's likely that the Verizon LG Zone 4 won't amaze anyone with its specs. But this means it should be sold at a low price, so customers on a budget have something to look forward to.
Verizon already released a pretty affordable LG smartphone this year - the K20 V, which currently costs $168 and offers features like a 5.3-inch 720p screen, fingerprint scanner, and a Snapdragon 425 processor. It remains to be seen if the LG Zone 4 will be cheaper than the K20 V.
