LG G Pro 2 Lite Bound for Verizon (LG-VS880) Passes Through FCC

LG-logo_jpg__1000×665_

The last we heard of LG’s mid-range G Pro Lite smartphone was at a foreign launch event in December. Despite LG’s silence on the G Pro Lite’s sales performance thus far, the phone must have sold well enough to justify a follow-up. Thanks to a leak, it appears the company is expanding the reach of the phone’s successor, the G Pro 2 Lite, to American shores. 

Recently filed FCC documents point to a variant with model number LG-VS880, compatible with Verizon’s LTE bands and CDMA network. The AT&T (LG-D631) version was spotted on LG’s website several weeks ago, and a Sprint (LG-LS885) model was accidentally posted on the carrier’s website in March before promptly being removed.

The phone carries the “lite” designation for a reason. Rumored specifications of the G Pro 2 Lite include a 5.7-inch 720p display, an 8MP rear camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. Needless to say, the phone is not going to break benchmark records anytime soon.

There is one exception to the  middling components; a 3200 mAh capacity battery. Considering the low power draw of the Snapdragon 400 and 720p display, that would provide hours upon hours of charge, should the rumors prove accurate.

No clue as to when LG plans to launch these devices, but when more information pops up, we will be there.

    How is this “mid-range”? A Snapdragon 400 is a low end SoC. The “mid-range” is the Snapdragon 600. 720p might be “mid-range” on a < 5" display but it's low end on a huge 5.7" screen. There is nothing about this phone that is "mid-range" in Q2 2014. Where are the real "mid-range" phones anyway… everything seems to be Snapdragon 800 "flagship" devices or low end 400's. I haven't seen a new device announcement for a mid range Snapdragon 600 based phone for a while… maybe I've just missed them though.

    I love this idea, and what LG is doing. A Note 3 at a budget price. Sure 720p might sound awful on a screen that size, but as long as the ppi is above 300 it shouldn’t be too bad. Kind of a shame there’s only 1 gig of RAM. But with an older processor I guess they can get away with it. Internal storage is low too but they should have an SD card slot so not too big a deal. The big selling point as mentioned though is dat battery life. With those specs you’re looking at 2 days easy with normal use. It’s not for me, but I can think of a lot of people that would love this device.

    I’ll wait 6 weeks for the Prime version.

  • aQuickBit

    Well that’s a name and a half.

  • Danmheadache

    Sould have gone with snap 600 and 720p and 2GB ram..

    • The Narrator

      Or not at all.

      • hoosiercub88

        This one ^^^ Not at all. There’s no need for half-ass phones. Verizon is giving away iPhone 5Cs..

    • Vanquishgc

      I think that processor was used just as a battery enhancer. I agree with the RAM though. It really should have 2 gigs. 8gb internal is pushing it too.

    “G Pro 2 Lite include a 5.7-inch 720p display” —Gag

    • The Narrator

      Sick of all these lite and mini devices.

      • Big EZ

        Yeah it sure sucks that someone who may not be able to afford a Note 3 or G Pro 2 can finally afford a larger device. This sucks so bad because now they are going to be able to have phones as big as the rest of us. Top that with the Moto E, and even poor people can have a smart phone now. What is this world coming to?

        How do low/mid range phones affect our top tier phones? These are not marketed for you, me, or most people on this site.

        • The Narrator

          If you’re on Verizon, you can afford the flagship phones. If not, get those priorities straight.

          • Vanquishgc

            Not necessarily. You know how many customers I get looking for free or close to free phones? Lots. They don’t grasp the concept that I can’t just hand over a Note 3 for nothing. Makes me facepalm every time….

          • Big EZ

            Some people may want the best for free, but some just don’t care whether they have the latest and greatest or not.

          • Vanquishgc

            This is very true. I get a lot of these types of customers mostly because of the market I work in. Harrisburg PA isn’t a high income area. We move a lot of Moto X’s, Lucid 2’s (really) and believe it or not, GS3’s. I’d say that’s about 75% of our clientele. We only move G2’s and M8’s and the like when the big ass rebates come out. So I get the hate on this phone in the community, but on my end, I’m excited because it’s an option many of our customers haven’t had before. These customers don’t care about processors, and ppi, but you give them a big ass screen and killer battery life at a good price, and they’re happy. It’s all perspective.

          • Big EZ

            So people who don’t care enough about phones to spend as much as we do, or people who are poor but need cell signal shouldn’t have options? The majority of these Lite and mini devices don’t come to Verizon anyway.

  • Keyan X

    Dat Nexus 4 back thoooo

  • Guy Pierce

    Lite? Might as well say “Mini”!

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Well it’s still 5.7. I bet she would think it’s mini, but not for a phone.

      • Guy Pierce

        HAHA Your right. I should have specified more towards the internal specs rather than the screen size. The internal specs scream “mini”!

  • droidify

    Isn’t using “Pro and Lite” basically cancelling each other out?

    • Rashad

      Yeah. Pro because of screen size and battery but lite because of everything else.

    • JD_26

      yeah .. so .. LG G 2 !!!! lol
