Leaked LG G Vista combines massive display with midrange specifications


LG has a new smartphone up its sleeve that combines a super-sized display with midrange specifications. The 5.7-inch device, dubbed the G Vista, is headed for Verizon Wireless with a Snapdragon 400 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, and LG’s latest Android software.

The G Vista won’t be looking to take on Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4, but it could launch an attack against the South Korean firm’s more affordable phablet devices, such as the Galaxy Mega series. LG will be hoping its size and attractive design will attract those with a desire for larger smartphones that don’t break the bank.

The G Vista looks a lot like the flagship G3 or last year’s G2 — only bigger — and is expected to pack a 5.7-inch display with a 720p resolution, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1.5GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. It’s also likely to have a rear-facing camera on its back, a 1.3-megapixel camera on its front, and a 3,200mAh battery.

We can see from the leaked press render above, which comes from the ever-reliable @Evleaks, that the device will also run LG’s latest Android interface, which first made its debut on the G3 in late May. It will be overlaid above the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system.

It’s unclear at this point when the G Vista will be available, or how much it will cost, but we expect to see official confirmation of these details from LG or Verizon in the coming weeks.
