LG G Vista 2 unveiled by AT&T, stylus and large screen in tow
AT&T will soon start selling a new smartphone manufactured by LG. Called LG G Vista 2, the new device is, obviously, succeeding the LG G Vista from last year (which was launched not just by AT&T, but also by Verizon).

The Vista 2 is about the same size as last year's model, but it comes with various upgraded features. For example, its 5.7-inch screen is a 1080p one, instead of just 720p, while its processor is an octa-core one (possibly a Snapdragon 615), instead of the quad-core Snapdragon 400 that's powering the old Vista.

The G Vista 2 further features a new stylus pen, a 1 W speaker, 5 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus and manual mode, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The handset seems to be running Android Lollipop, but we assume it's going to be updated to Marshmallow at some point.

AT&T didn't announce when, and neither for what price it's planning to sell the LG G Vista 2. However, the phone's official promo video (embedded below) suggests that this will be an affordable device. Any takers?

No other phone uses the Wacom digitizer so yeah it certainly is Sammy's S-Pen.

No other pickup uses the Cummins diesel. That don't make it Dodge's.

This will probably flop harder than the other Vista we know of...

Small tipped capacitive stylus. No palm rejection or optimized apps. Samsung's Wacom-based offerings have nothing to worry about. This is a rehash of the "Rubberdium" stylus from the Intuition of a few years ago.

My gf may like this as she has a Vista...probably in another 2 years! She's a thrifty one, and won't upgrade unnecessarily. I still gotta root and debloat her current one.

I have a vista on verizon currently and enjoy it much more than I thought I would. It was an emergency replacement after the headphone jack on my g2 took a crap on me. Will be watching to see if this comes to vzw

I guess this phone is for those who only care about a large screen and not much else. The specs on this are so low end I cannot see any serious phone user wanting it.
