Sprint announces the LG G3 Vigor, a rebranded Beat

LG G3 Beat (2)

Why carriers choose to rebrand devices is a mystery. Verizon rebranded the HTC One mini 2, calling it the HTC One Remix earlier this year. Does this make the device any more appealing? I don’t think so. Sprint’s rebranding is even weirder, as the company has announced that it will be selling the LG G3 Vigor later this week.

The LG G3 Vigor is a rebranded LG G3 Beat, but unlike with Verizon, Sprint has┬áchanged an undescriptive word to an equally undescriptive word. We don’t know why they do it, but it’s not a big deal. The LG G3 Vigor features a 5-inch 720p IPS display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, a 2,540 mAh battery and an 8-megapixel camera with Laser Auto Focus.

While the G3 Vigor┬ádevice isn’t a powerhouse, it’ll be pretty speedy thanks to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Plus, with a $299.99 off contract price, it’s a pretty good deal. The device launches September 19, so if you’re interested, you can buy it then. How many of you plan to buy this device?

    Well, I have standard version of LG G3 from last 1 month and like its 5.5 inch QHD screen, higher resolution, 32GB internal storage with micro SD support, 3GB of RAM for smooth operation of app, and 3000mAh battery that once fully charged on qi wireless charger for LG G3 enable me to explore more apps and features.
