Verizon reportedly has a bunch of new phone plans coming this Friday, with the carrier focusing on unlimited offerings. The announcement will follow an episode a few weeks ago, when Verizon's website mentioned phone plans that didn't yet exist, Droid Life said on Thursday.

Verizon will introduce four new plans, Droid Life said, citing what it called a reliable source. The plans will be called Get More Unlimited, Play More Unlimited, Do More Unlimited and Start Unlimited. They'll be launched by Aug. 5, the report said.

According to Droid Life, all four plans will come with free 5G access for a limited time, and all include Apple Music subscriptions and Verizon Cloud storage, as well as unlimited talk and text and international texting.

Unlimited hotspot is included for up to 30GB of data on 4G LTE on the Get More plan; up to 15GB of 4G LTE data on Play More and Do More; and isn't included on Start Unlimited, according to Droid Life.

Verizon didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
