After the successful launch of the LG G3 smartphone last May, it now appears that the South Korean device maker is heavily involved in other variants of the said flagship. According to the latest leak by EVLeaks, a device named LG G Vista is set to go on sale beginning July 18 via U.S carrier Verizon.
Prior to this leak, it was previously reported that Verizon is in line to get two new models from LG namely the LG G3 and the LG G Vista, which are intended to be launched on a dedicated event on July 17. Now with this fresh leak, that earlier rumor is somewhat confirmed as the new model is supposedly coming out the next day.
Furthermore, it seems that the LG G Vista is not the only G3 variant that the company has in the works. Talking in reference to LG?s previous USPTO trademark filing, four names have been suggested to be included in the company?s licensed trademarks: the G3 Lite, G3 Vigor, G3 Best, and the G3 Vista. Of these four, the LG Beat has ?debuted in China and is touted as the mini version of the flagship G3 model.
The LG G Vista is seen as a variation to the LG G Pro 2 model and will feature a bigger screen. Aside from this, all other features appear to be on the lower end compared to the G3 and G Pro. This upcoming handset has model number VS880 and is reportedly set to cater to the users who want the Galaxy Note 3?s display size but do not need the up-market specs and hefty price that come with it.
The LG G Vista phablet will allegedly sport a 3,200 mAh battery, an 8-megapixel, full HD rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter. As you can see in the image above, the models design and form factor is also reminiscent of the LG G3 as evidenced by its power button and volume keys placed on the rear side.
So far, here is what we already know about the supposed specifications of the LG G Vista (VS880):
- 5.5-inch (1280 ? 720 pixels) HD IPS display
- Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926) processor with Adreno 305 GPU
