LG is expected to release a version of the LG G Pro 2 Lite specifically for the US. According to a new leak from @evleaks, the device will be released Friday July 18th.
The LG G Pro 2 Lite, while rich with words in the name, is a budget friendly version of the LG G Pro 2. The device has been rumored to come to the US though under a different name-the LG G Vista. Since early June we have known that the G Vista would be coming to Verizon thanks to a leak by the very same @evleaks.
The original leak showed off a case for the device on Verizon's product website. However, that wasn't the first time we saw the device. It was in May 2014 when we first heard of the device as it passed through the FCC. That's when we learned that the G Vista would have a 5.7-inch 1280 x 720 display. Other specs include a quad-core 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 CPU, a 3200mAh battery, 8MP camera on the back and a 1.3MP camera on the front. The G Vista is also expected to have support for LTE Bands 4 and 13 and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. It will more than likely run Android 4.4.2 out of the box. All of this information was included in earlier leaks and FCC documents, but what wasn't known was an exact release date-until now.
According to the most recent leak from @evleaks, the LG G Vista will be released by Verizon on Friday July 18th. While there hasn't been any information as to pricing, it's clear that the device is aimed to be a budget friendly device. The leak that was in regards to the release date, had no other information handy, it was straight to the point. There also has been no word from Verizon mentioning the device which makes this still a rumor. Although @evleaks has had quite a bit of information about this device so far. We will still have to wait for official word from Verizon, at least as far as pricing is concerned. Though it should be made official very soon.
