Another Possible LG G4 Model Number for Verizon Spotted

February 6, 2015 - Written By Phil Bourget


We have all been eagerly awaiting the release of this year’s spring flagship lineup from manufacturers like Samsung and HTC, but LG has some special intensity this year, with two devices coming out with big implications.  The LG G Flex 2, which we saw at CES in January was the first real device with the latest processors from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon family, the 810.  The 810, with its 64-bit architecture and octa-core capabilities, looks to be a big name processor this year just as the 801 was in 2013, finding itself in the HTC, Samsung, and LG flagship.  But what of the G4 possibility?

The G4 is the device many of us know nothing about, and all of us want to.  Its soon-to-be older sibling the G3 featured the United States’ first ‘native’ QuadHD display experience.  Now, LG looks to refine the experience with better hardware and software to make that 2K experience even better.  The big deal with LG’s G family of phones has been the availability of them across all the major U.S. carriers as well as globally.

We got a glimpse of what was labelled the LG VS999, with a supposed 3K display, which is both ridiculous and unnecessary if you ask most people.  And now, we bring you another look at yet another model number which could very well be the G4 for 2015, the LG VS986.

Last year, Verizon’s G3 was model VS985, so this is a very minor change which often isnt seen between model year iterations of devices.  And from an update on the original sighting of the listing, it seems that this could be part of the P1s program, which could be an LG G4 Mini or G4 Stylus for Verizon.

Regardless of what the device actually turns out to be (or whether the VS999 actually is a real device or an attention-grabbing fake listing, especially with no voice input capabilities…), it will be a great new handset for Verizon courtesy of the smaller but still giant South Korean manufacturer LG.  Which device do you hope that the VS986 is: G4 Mini, G4 Stylus, G Flex 2 perhaps, or the standard G4?  Would you consider us ready (specifically with battery technology in mind) ready for something ridiculous like a 3K display (that’s 1620 by 2880 pixels folks)?  Let us know down below.
