While some sources are confident that the LG G Vista will get a US release, a few blogs caution that the G Vista might never launch. Pocketnow writes:
“It’s entirely possible that this phone will never see the light, but given the track record of @evleaks [who shared leaked images of the G Vista online], it’s looking to be fairly likely.”
5. G Vista Specs Up in the Air
Looking for some insight on past LG smartphones? Listen to this report about the critically-acclaimed G2 above.
PhoneDog has some thoughts about the possible specs of the G Vista, which are still something of a mystery:
“The rumor mill suggests that the LG G Vista could be the Verizon version of a device known as the LG G Pro 2 Lite. As that name suggests, the G Pro 2 Lite would likely be a toned down version of the G Pro 2, which includes a 5.9-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM and a 2.26GHz quad-core processor.”
Chances are, the coming weeks will do a lot to clear up any lingering questions about this cool new phone.
