LG G Vista VS880 for Verizon is a 5.7″ mid-range phablet: Rumor

We know that LG is working on multiple versions of its G3 flagship and amongst them is the LG G Vista VS880 that’s most likely going to be an exclusive to Verizon in the US. The handset will also be launched internationally, but under the G3 Vista branding. While we’ve seen the device in question popup multiple times in leaks, we now have specs and press renders.

The LG G Vista VS880 looks identical to the G3 smartphone in design and size, but it’s going to be slightly larger. While the latter has a 5.5-inch display, the former phone will carry a 5.7-inch panel. If you look at both handsets closely (skip to the second image below), you’ll be able to make out the difference in the screen size.

The panel on the upcoming phone will be of 720p which is a downer. A previous report suggested that the VS880 could be the G Pro 2 Lite model and the specs indicate the same as well. At 9.1mm thick, the handset will be powered by the Snapdragon 400 MSM8926 processor which offers quad core and a 1.2GHz clock speed with Cat 4 LTE support.

Additionally, it will feature 1.5GB of DDR2 RAM and 8GB of storage, but there’s no word on whether memory expansion will be possible. Battery life should be pretty good with the 3200mAh cell and phone won’t be too heavy despite its size.

Here’s an overview of the LG G Vista VS880 specs:

– Android 4.4 KitKat

There’s a high chance that the LG G Vista VS880 will reach Verizon in the first week of August if the date shown on the phone’s UI is to be believed. @evleaks has also leaked information on the G3 mini.
