Not only will LG offer the G3, which we believe is among the best devices currently available. But the carrier is also going to introduce something known as the LG G Vista, which looks identical to the G3. That’s the word coming down the pipeline from Evleaks, though it’s not really clear how the two devices will differ. From what we can tell, it appears as though the G Vista will sport a screen that’s slightly larger than the 5.5-inch screen on the G3—not only does it seem a tad wider, but a bit taller, too. If that’s the case, that will add to the illusion that the device is even more screen than the G3 already is, as you can plainly see in the side-by-side picture above. But are these screens the same resolution? It’s hard to tell from a press image.
It looks like Verizon will have two new LG handsets on offer, as a leak earlier today revealed that in addition to the G3, the carrier will also stock a device by the name of LG G Vista, which is claimed to be a “Lite” variant of the G Pro 2. There aren’t any details as to what the hardware G Vista might feature, but if the image above is any indication, it looks like the device sports the same 5.9-inch display as the original G Pro 2, considering that it is wider . The front camera and sensors positions are also identical to that of the G Pro 2, so it is possible that the device retains the design as the standard variant with slightly trimmed down hardware to make it more accessible to a wider audience. As far as the user interface is concerned, it looks like the G Vista will feature the redesigned flatter UI first seen on the G3. LG’s move with the G Pro 2 Lite would be similar to what Samsung has already done with the Galaxy Note 3 Neo. By offering a device with mid-range hardware in a chassis that is identical to that of the Note 3, Samsung has managed to attract interest from a broader selection of smartphone users. As for the launch of the G Vista, while there is no concrete confirmation, rumors allege that LG is set to announce the device sometime next month.
