Mystery LG VS986 could be the LG G4s or LG G4 Stylus for Verizon

A database entry on the Verizon website Thursday revealed a mystery model number LG VS986. The number is so close to the LG G3's LG VS985, that most would probably think that the phone is the LG G4 for Verizon. Recently, a number of mysterious LG models have gone public and any of them could be LG's next flagship model including the LG VS999 which we saw at the end of last month. That phone is rumored to carry a display with a resolution of 1620 x 2880.

On Wednesday, we showed you a Wi-Fi Alliance certification for the LG-H811. This device runs on Android 5.0. What makes this leak interesting is that the LG-H810 was already rumored to be the LG G4 for AT&T.

Then, there are the three mystery LG models allegedly heading for the three major South Korean carriers. The trio are the F500L (for LG Telecom), F500K (for Korea Telecom), and F500S (for SK Telecom). Each of these three variants carries a 1440 x 2560 display.

There is some talk that the LG VS986 belongs to the P1S project, similar to the LG H631 for AT&T that we told you about the other day. That would make the Verizon model the LG G4s (similar to a LG G4 mini) or the LG G4 Stylus. Eventually, we will get to the bottom of all of these model numbers as the year progresses.

We should point out that other model numbers seen on the database entry include the Verizon LG G3 (LG VS986), the LG GizmoPal (LG VC100) and the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE (LG VK410). The black lines cover up information that could reveal the source of the image.

Thanks for the tip!

Just saying 1080p/FHD is 2K 1440p/QHD is 2.5K But I usually dont say 2K or 2.5K, since I'm use to saying 1080p/1440p or FHD/QHD

lol 2K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 2,000 pixels 4K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels Basically anything K means having roughly _K amount of horizontal resolution (horizontal x vertical) 720p (1280x720) = HD 1080p (1920x1080) = 2K, Full HD 1440p (2560x1440) = 2.5K, Quad HD, its 4x 720p (i.e. 2x wide) 2160p (3840x2160) = 4K, Ultra HD, its 4x 1080p (i.e. 2x wide, 2*2K=4K) 2880p (5120x2880) = 5K, its 4x 1440p (i.e. 2x wide, 2*2.5K=5K) There's not really any 1K or 3K Usually people would call 1800p (3200x1800) 3K But 1620p would also be 3K I guess 1K would be 540p (960x540), quarter of 1080p/2K (i.e. wide/2, 2K/2=1K)

1440p QHD is part of 2K, QHD is 4 times 720p, thus a width of 2560 pixels. It will only be a QHD display if it reaches this resolution. 2K, however, is supposed to have somewhere around 2000 pixels (the K stands for kilo meaning "times 1000"). The 2K, 4K and 8K terms are more generic than QHD, UHD (3840 pixels × 2160) and FUHD (7680 × 4320). So QHD has an exact definition of the resolution, while 2K doesn't, still QHD is in the range of 2,000 pixels (it certainly is not 4K). Manufacters of hardware use both terms interchangebly to sell their hardware. For example LG and Samsung do. So QHD is part of 2K, but it is not the same (a 2048p resolution is 2K, but not QHD).
