While LG did announce the LG G6 last weekend, and Verizon did announce that they would be selling the device in the future, there has been no word about availability for the device. In fact, it looks like the LG G6 hadn't even gone through the FCC, at least for Verizon. And this is something that has to happen before the smartphone can be sold by Verizon. But it looks like that variant has now been approved by the FCC. The LG H870V appeared at the FCC on Thursday, on its way to a public release on Big Red fairly soon.
The LG G6 has the model number H870, and the "V" at the end of it typically means "Verizon". Like Samsung and most other manufacturers, LG uses the letter of the carrier it is destined for at the end of their model number. Making it easy to figure out which carrier is getting which variant. Especially since the variants are mostly the same, other than the bands they support, this is a pretty important thing. Now that the FCC has approved the H870V, we should be seeing it coming to Verizon in the very near future.
As far as specs go, the LG G6 has some of the best specs on the market right now. LG has included a 5.7-inch QHD display which has a resolution of 2880x1440. It's a bit of a weird resolution due to the fact that the screen is 18:9 this time around instead of 16:9, making it a bit taller. Inside, there is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor running the show with 4GB of RAM. LG has also thrown in 32GB of storage with a micro SD card slot for expansion and there is a 3300mAh battery as well. This battery, unfortunately, is not removable this time around, and that's due to the fact that the LG G6 is made of metal and glass. Making it pretty tough to fit in a removable back for the ability to remove the battery. There's still no word on when the LG G6 will be available globally, but most are pointing towards an April release.
