As if the LG G3 smartphone family wasn’t convoluted and confusing enough already, yet another variation of the top-shelf G3 is tipped for an imminent release, likely exclusive to Sprint. Before getting to “G3 Vigor” business though, a quick recap.
In the beginning was the G3, and everything was so much simpler to understand. But then came the G3 Cat. 6, aka G3 LTE-A, aka G3 Prime came, and although it didn’t change a whole lot, it muddied the waters quite a bit.
The G3 s, the flagship’s compressed flavor, shouldn’t have disoriented us that much, but just for kicks, LG decided to launch it under two monikers: G3 s and G3 Beat. All while most of us would end up calling it G3 mini anyway.
The G3 Stylus, though certainly unexpected, at least carries a suggestive and straightforward name, but alas, the G3 A for Korea doesn’t. And neither does the G3 Vigor, unless it’s not a carbon copy of the G3 s, as rumors suggest, but rather an extra-vigorous, beefed-up midrange take on LG’s base flagship.
Yeah, you better not get your hopes up, as credible moles have leaked out to the press a preliminary G3 Vigor spec sheet that reads exactly like G3 Beat’s list of features.
The middling 5-inch 1,280 x 720 pix res display is on there, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of internal storage space too, and even the same 2,540 mAh battery. Also, up-to-date, chocolaty Android 4.4 KitKat, a quad-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, and microSD support.
Sprint ETA? Later this month. Earlier in September, worst case scenario.
