Verizon will introduce a new Device Payment Plan for “some devices” starting April 21, the carrier announced on Friday. Following the elimination of Verizon’s 20 month early upgrades, the plans will be similar in vein to the carrier’s tablet programs.

Still, it gives consumers the option to upgrade their device a little earlier, and break up the cost throughout the year.
