The LG G Vista is a device we have been waiting to see for some time and now Verizon has confirmed that the smartphone will land on July 31st. The handset is also due to land on AT&T eventually too and will likely travel around the world, but for the time being Verizon is the only game in town if you want the G Vista.In a way, the device is a phablet version of the LG G3 flagship, but oddly it lacks some of the high end specs that come with that handset. Under the hood there will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, while the screen will be a 5.7-inch 720p panel (the G3 boasts a Snapdragon 801 chipset and a 5.5-inch Quad HD display). Also arriving with the LG G Vista will be an 8 megapixel rear camera lens, 8GB of on board storage, and the option to expand with a MicroSD card slot. Of course, those are some pretty mid-range specs, but then that is actually what the G Vista is so in the respect it seems a solid smartphone. Its price point will also match its modest hardware as it will cost $99 on contract with Verizon (likely to be the same deal when it lands on AT&T), while off contract the handset will retail at $499. source: Droid Life
