Verizon has just announced that two more budget-friendly Android handsets made by HTC are coming to the carrier sometime soon. The HTC Desire 526 and 626 were both announced back in July, each boasting decent specifications, solid build quality and some great software enhancements for a cheap price point.

For starters, the Verizon-exclusive Desire 526 has a 4.7-inch qHD display, a 1.1 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of on-board storage and microSD card expansion. It also comes with an 8MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front camera, a 2,000mAh battery, and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. The 526 will be available on Thursday, August 13th for $120 off-contract or for $5 per month for 24 months on Verizon’s prepaid network.
