Verizon is apparently getting ready to launch another mid-range Android phablet on Thursday, July 31, with the LG G Vista.

It's not the first time that information has leaked regarding this purported LG G Vista, but the latest report comes with new images showing both the front and the back of the device, and claims to reveal the smartphone's "real specs."

According to the new report from Droid-Life, the LG G Vista is set to land on Verizon Wireless' network on Thursday, July 31, sporting a $99.99 price tag with a two-year service agreement. Interested buyers who don't want to commit to a lengthy contract can also get the smartphone outright, but will have to shell out $499.

The purported LG G Vista looks like another smartphone joining the mid-range segment of the market, as the pricing itself suggests. This means that it will not pack any top-notch specs and features on board, but it will come with decent internals.

More specifically, the LG G Vista will reportedly sport a massive 5.7-inch display with an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Under the hood, the handset will pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, paired with 1.5GHz of RAM, one of the newly-leaked images reveals. Other specs include 8GB of internal storage capacity, a microSD card slot for additional memory, an 8-megapixel rear camera with the same laser auto focus found on the flagship LG G3, and a 2-megapixel front shooter for selfies and video calls. The smartphone is reportedly LTE-enabled and will come with Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. A 3,200 mAh battery will keep things up and running.

Verizon has yet to make an official announcement, but if it does indeed plan to release the LG G Vista as soon as Thursday, July 31, we'll know all there is to know about this new smartphone straight from the source in no time. We'll keep an eye out for any new Verizon unveiling and keep you up to date as soon as more information becomes available, so stay tuned. In the meantime, take everything with a grain of salt, including this latest leak.
