Two new midrange phones are making their way to Verizon. The carrier has announced that it’s now offering the LG K20 V and the Samsung Galaxy J7 V, a pair of phones that come with a relatively decent price tag.

The phones are available on both Verizon’s prepaid and postpaid plans, with the LG K20 priced at $168, while the Galaxy J7 costs a little more at $240.

So what kind of specs do the two new phones have to offer? Let’s start with the Samsung J7 V. The phone has a relatively large 5.5-inch display, along with an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 3,300mAh battery that should provide at least a full day of use. Powering the phone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. The phone comes with 16GB of storage, but it has a microSD card slot so you can expand the storage up to an additional 256GB. It’s not a bad deal for the price — although there are definitely more powerful phones out there.

Then there’s the cheaper LG K20 V, which is a little smaller with its 5.3-inch display. This device offers a 13MP rear-facing camera, along with a 5MP front-facing device. You’ll also get a 2,800mAh battery and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor. The phone comes with 16GB of storage, but again, you’ll get a microSD card slot for expanding storage.

Both of the devices come with Android 7.0 out of the box, so if you’re looking for a cheap way to get the latest and greatest version of Android, then either one of the devices might be a good one to get.

You can get the Samsung Galaxy S7 V and the LG K20 V for yourself from the Verizon website.
