Verizon Wireless has been heavily rumoured to be launching an LG device now known as the LG G Vista or by model number LG-VS880. Just yesterday, a new image showed up courtesy of @evleaks comparing it to the LG G3. The differences are subtle but they are there nonetheless, assuming that the images are at scale to one another. If on the other hand the LG G Vista is a somewhat less powerful LG G Pro 2 variant for Verizon as some believe, it will likely be a larger device.
According to a UAProf file first discovered by MyLGPhones, the LG G Vista will sport an HD (720×1280) display, likely of a very similar size to the LG G3’s own 5.5-inch display, LTE connectivity (confirmed by the image as well) and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Other specifications reportedly include a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, support for microSD cards up to 32GB, an 8MP rear camera, a 1.3MP front camera and a removeable 3,200mAh battery.
We’ve now received word that an entire tutorial video for the LG G Vista has landed on YouTube. The introductory video helps users get the most out of their new smartphone. Giving credibility to the video is the fact that images published by MyLGPhones appear to have come from the same source. Unfortunately, it does little to confirm the rumoured specifications.
Verizon Wireless is expected to launch the LG G Vista later this summer. It would appear that it will be a cheaper and larger alternative to the LG G3.
Update: The original video is now set to Private. Fortunately, our tipster was kind enough to provide us with a copy of the video. Enjoy!
