South Korea's LG Electronics Inc launched a revamped version of its flagship G3 high-end smartphone at a discount to its predecessor model on Wednesday and said it would ship more than 10 million units to improve its ailing handset business.
The LG G Pro 2 Lite is a budget-friendly variant of the original LG G Pro 2, which was released in April 2014. The G Vista will reportedly feature a whopping 5.7-inches display with 1,280 x 720 pixels screen resolution and 258 ppi pixel density.
The handset will be powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 400) Cortex-A7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz and Adreno 305 GPU. The device will run on Android v4.4.2 (KitKat) out of the box. Also, the phone will house a 1.5 GB of RAM, according to GSM Arena.
The LG G Vista will come with a whopping 3200 mAh battery unit. When it comes to camera specifications, the handset will house an 8 MP rear-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera unit.
In addition, the G Vista will reportedly support LTE Bands 4 and 13 along with Bluetooth 4.0 LE and other standard connections. The handset will come equipped with 8 GB of internal storage capacity. The aforementioned specifications belong to the model number VS880 of LG G Vista.
It is worth mentioning that earlier leaks showcased a rear-panel case for the upcoming LG G Vista on Verizon's official website confirming the existence of the device. Nevertheless, the first leak came to light during the month of May, when the new LG device was spotted in FCC site, says Android Headlines.
Meanwhile, the price details of this 5.7-inches phablet is yet to be announced. The only other phablet that is expected to come with the same, gigantic 5.7-inches display is the rumoured Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The 2014 flagship of LG, the G3, features only a 5.5-inches display.
