The LG G4 was announced at the end of last month, and the device is already available in LG’s homeland, South Korea. A number of other areas all around the world will follow soon, including the US. A number of US-based carriers have already announced that they’ll carry the G4, soon after the device was announced actually, though that was to be expected. Anyhow, it seems like the device will launch in the US really soon considering the two variants of the device were just certified by the FCC, read on.
Verizon’s and Sprint’s variants of the LG G4 were just certified by the FCC, the ‘VS986’ and ‘LS991’ models, respectively. The FCC listing doesn’t exactly mention the device itself, but considering that the ‘VS985’ was Verizon’s variant of the G3, and ‘LS990’ was Sprint’s variant of that very same device last year, it’s quite obvious that we’re looking at the G4 this time around. Unfortunately, we still don’t know when will either of these carriers launch the G4, though Sprint has already launched the pre-registration page for the device. Judging by these FCC listing, Sprint’s and Verizon’s variants of the G4 will roll out first, and other US-based carriers will follow soon probably.
The LG G4 comes sporting a 5.5-inch IPS ‘Quantum’ display along with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (expandable via microSD card). This handset is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core SoC which ships with an Adreno 418 GPU for graphics. The 16-megapixel OIS shooter is located on the back of LG’s flagship, and an 8-megapixel snapper is available up front. The 3,000mAh battery is located on the inside of this device and is removable. Android 5.1 Lollipop comes pre-installed on the G4 along with LG’s very own UX 4.0 UI. The G4 measures 148.9 x 76.1 x 9.8mm, weighs 155 grams and ships with 4G LTE connectivity, of course.
This handset is slightly curved, and will be available in a number of different back cover options. The G4 has launched in leather, ceramic and plastic back cover variants, and it is still unknown which variants will the US carriers offers once the device launches. Stay tuned, we’ll report back soon.
