    AT&T chose to unveil the mid-range LG G Vista 2 smartphone in fairly unorthodox fashion a couple of weeks back, uploading a detailed product video on YouTube, but neglecting to provide a commercial launch date or pricing structure. Today, we find out what the mystery was all about. Presumably, the second largest wireless service operator stateside aimed to build hype before revealing the G Vista 2 would cost a prohibitive $448.99 off-contract. Granted, the 5.7-incher’s subsidized tag sounds much better, at $50 with two-year pacts, and you can also choose to split the outright costs ...

    We can’t say we’re too surprised to see the LG G Vista 2 for AT&T break cover, as the first-gen mid-range phablet was getting a bit long in the tooth, having debuted on the GSM carrier, as well as Verizon back in summer of 2014. But it’s definitely unusual for a phone to go official via YouTube, with an “overview and specs” video clocking in at over three minutes, and no mention on Ma Bell’s website of a release date or MSRP. The original is still available for sale at America’s second largest wireless service provider, costing $375 off-contract, or $0 with 24-month ...

    In case you still doubted LG has plans to go after the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and Apple iPhone 6s Plus this fall with something other than the rapidly aging G4, the company’s preparations for a no doubt glamorous October 1 New York event should clear the air once and for all regarding the V10. But the Snapdragon 808 big guy, fitted with an auxiliary “ticker” display and cited as G4 Pro or G4 Note by a slew of tipsters, may be chaperoned to the NYC introductory ceremony by a stylus-capable G4 Graphy or G4 Script. That’s obviously pure, unfounded speculation at the moment, though a ...

    Right now, if you mention “LG” and “phablet,” we're liable to start thinking about that G3 Stylus LG seems to have accidentally outed earlier this week. At least, it's going to have an integrated stylus, but the jury's still out on a number of other hardware specs, including a precise screen size. But wind the clock back just a little further, and we had a much more straightforward LG phablet on our mind, the 5.7-inch G Vista that launched last month. Right from the start, rumors identified the phone as a Verizon model, and by the time it was finally read to go official at the end ...

    There was no shortage of leaks regarding the LG G Vista, and, while some of them were a miss, others were spot on regarding its availability date and upcoming specifications. As predicted, the phone is available today, July 31, online, from Verizon Wireless, and it goes for $99.99 with a two-year contract (or $19.99/month on Verizon Edge, or $399 outright). The Verizon LG G Vista specs, as expected, include a 5.7–inch qHD display (that's 940x560, unfortunately not Quad HD, like the G3), a resolution that is rather small for such a large display form factor. Also in is a 1.2 GHz ...

    This past weekend we brought you an exclusive leak concerning Verizon's plans for the LG G Vista. We got an updated launch date, with it looking like VZW would get the G Vista out by the end of the month, and also got to see some detailed descriptions of the phone's hardware. The odd thing was, some of this new data didn't agree with previous rumors – would the phone arrive with a qHD or a 720p 5.9-inch display? As we get closer to the G Vista's launch, a new leak attempts to set the record straight, and despite what we got from our source, it's looking like the phone might be 720p, ...

    We've heard a lot about the LG G Vista in the recent past, with leaks, reports and rumors mentioning the device as being on its way to Verizon. Rumors about a July 18 release date clearly have not panned out, but is a launch still on its way? And if those rumors were wrong about that date, could they be wrong about other details, as well? Verizon hasn't made anything official just yet, but we've received new information from one of our tipsters which, as you can see below, attempts to clarify a few specifics about the G Vista's hardware, while also giving us a new launch date of Thursday, ...

    It looks like LG's G3-look-alike G Vista smartphone could be ready to go for launch. The phone, which has seen itself leaked in photos and a spec list recently, isn't exactly the highest-end piece of hardware, but that doesn't mean it could be a compelling mid-range package for some. If information obtained by @evleaks is to be believed, the Verizon LG G Vista release date could come this week. The leaked specs pegged the phone as a decent candidate in the 2014 smartphone market, as it allegedly features a Qualcomm MSM8926 (Snapdragon 400?) with an unknown clock speed, a 5.7-inch 720p ...

    A phone that's been confusing many as of late is the LG G Vista, the not-so-G3 that's allegedly on its way to the Verizon Wireless network. This possibly-rebranded G Pro 2 Lite has shown up in a multitude of renders so far, though we haven't seen specs... until now. Courtesy of @evleaks, we're taking a look at a list of alleged G Vista specs alongside a brand new image of the phone. The phone (with model number VS880) will allegedly have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926), a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280x720 (720p), 1.5 GB of DDR2 RAM, and 8GB of EMMC flash storage. Its ...

    A couple of weeks ago we assumed that the LG G Vista renders that emerged belonged to the LG variant of its flagship, the G3. As it turns out, these are two different phones, and you can notice the subtle differences in their designs when you compare the placement of the Verizon logo, among other minor details. More renders emerge of the G Vista today, though now that we can see the back of the phone, this just becomes more confusing. Since the rumors point to this LG G Vista being a tad wider than the LG G3, it could be that this is the Verizon G Pro 2 Lite that was recently rumored. ...

    Verizon's LG situation has been a bit murky lately, with the G3 and a similar G Vista phone in the pipeline for alleged releases soon. Before, we speculated that "G Vista" may just be a rebranded name for the G3's Verizon launch, but now, through new G3 and G Vista pictures, it seems that they are two entirely separate phones. The G Vista (pictured to the right) bears a very similar software skin to the G3, but it is a bit wider and has what look to be smaller LG and Verizon logos on the front. This leads us to believe this is actually the Verizon G Pro 2 Lite that leaked a few weeks ...

    One week back we heard about LG's model VS880, supposedly destined to find a home at Verizon as the G Vista. Fair enough - Verizon certainly has a penchant for assigning new names to the phones it picks up – but just which device would the G Vista be? Well, the G3 on Verizon is expected to be VS985, and the G2 last year was VS980. We've heard suggestions that the G Vista VS880 could be something like a G Pro 2 or a Mini version of an LG phone, but we lack model numbers for Verizon-specific variants to compare this to, and LG's numbering scheme makes it difficult to extrapolate numbers ...

    While we still look toward July 17 as a possible launch date for LG's newest flagship, the G3, on Verizon Wireless, we have yet another phone to look out for -- the G Vista. According to @evleaks, the G Vista will be coming to Big Red soon. The phone will reportedly carry the model number VS880, which leads us to believe this could be a G2 Mini (pictured above) variant for the carrier's 4G LTE network. The G2 of yesteryear was the VS980 on Verizon, as reference. While this report does not provide any sort of a time-frame in terms of when to expect to see the G Vista, we can speculate a ...
