LG has launched a new android phablet- with the mid-end specs: LG G Vista. This new smartphone by the Korean tech giant, is however, a CDMA device and will not work on GSM network anywhere. Though the other specs are strictly mid range, the battery and display of this device are quite appreciable. It looks similar to this year’s LG’s flagship LG G3, but lacks the power.
The phone has a 5.7 inches capacitive display of 720 X 1280 pixels, giving a pixel density of 258 ppi, and has the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Physically, the phone measures 152.2 x 79.3 x 9.1 mm and has the weight of 168.1 grams, which is not so decent but not much bad too. The phone will have 8 GB of internal memory, which can be extended by a microSD card upto 64 GB. It has 1.5 GB RAM, and for the processing power, there will be a quad core 1.2 GHz CPU, and the GPU is not yet specified. For the photography and videography options, this smartphone will have a 8 MP primary camera with autofocus and LED Flash which can capture videos upto 1080p @ 30 fps, and a 1.3 MP secondary camera for video calls and selfies. The juice will be provided by a Li-Ion 3200 mAh battery, which is claimed to give a talktime of upto 15 hours in 3G. For the connectivity options, there will be LTE support (EV-DO Rev. A, up to 3.1 Mbps), microUSB v2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi and NFC. The phone will run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, and since LG is pretty good with the updates, it will also most probably get at least a major update in the future. The phone will be available only in metallic black color.
The phone, strictly targeted to the mid-range big screen mobile lovers, is good enough if priced properly. As lately LG is doing good with the sales after a long time of hardships, we can expect the LG G Vista to be a hit. The mobile is first released and already available for the Verizon carrier users in the US, and is hoped to have a global launch very soon.
