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.
What do you think of the device? Would you be interested in a mid-range large-screened device from LG?
