After appearing in severalleaks earlier in July, today the LG G Vista has been totally revealed as it begins to make its way into Verizon stores.
New images of the LG G Vista and its packaging in the wild have leaked out. The back of the G Vista’s box also show most of the device’s specs:
5.7-inch 1280x720 IPS display
1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor
8-megapixel rear camera with Laser Auto Focus
8GB storage (3.76GB available to the user)
microSD slot with support ford cards up to 64GB
1.5GB of RAM
4G LTE connectivity
Android 4.4 KitKat
While the LG G Vista shares many design features with its flagship LG G3 sibling — including its rear-mounted buttons — the G Vista is more of a mid-range offering with its 720p screen and Snapdragon 400 chip. With its rumored $99 on-contract and $499 off-contract pricing, though, at least LG and Verizon could end up pricing it accordingly and giving consumers a big red phablet at an affordable price.
The G Vista is expected to officially launch at Verizon this Thursday, July 31, so stay tuned for more details on this Big Red phablet as I get ‘em.
