The LG G Vista – if the leaks were to be believed – was supposed to be a “mini” version of one of LG’s higher tier phones, and that’s what it’s actually turning out to be as the confirmations are streaming in. The new LG phone has now been semi-confirmed for Verizon and AT&T via internal product leaks. Let’s see what it looks like.
Verizon’s leak was in the form of an internal (or at least, unreleased) product description document that highlighted some of the product’s specs without going into much specifics. According to the document, the phone will have a pretty large screen at 5.7 inches, but people will be slightly disappointed with the declared qHD resolution (that is, 960 x 540 pixels). An unnamed 1.2GHz quad-core processor is also declared in the slide, and it will most likely be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with an Adreno 305 GPU.
AT&T has also let out an internal user’s manual of what it calls the G Vista (see the source link). The specs are pretty much the same, but the Verizon version has been rumored to pack 1.5GB of RAM rather than the 1GB rumored for the AT&T version. There is a possibility that the companies could put out different models, but there is very little logic in doing that. Both have also confirmed the 3200mAh battery that the phone will come with, a very strong feature that will see users of the LG G Vista last the whole day without charging.
From the looks of it, Verizon and AT&T users may not have long to wait before this new LG mid-tier smartphone is unleashed upon them, with the sources pointing to a very near date in July 31, 2014 as the date of launch. The phone – while not really packing powerful specs – has LG’s innovative UI approach to bank on, and the G Vista is sure to have that rear-key design that’s found on LG’s premium phones, as well as multi-window capabilities for multitasking.
