Before a device can be sold, it needs to be approved by the FCC. When rumored devices show up in FCC filings, we get an idea of what they might look like and how soon will they become available in the market. There is already a lot of hype surrounding LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the G2. LG has sent out invites for an event on August 7th where it will formally announce this device. The FCC has approved a new LG smartphone today named D801, it is believed that this is the variant that will be available from AT&T in the U.S.
FCC filings don’t give everything away about an unreleased device, but the sketches let us match the filing with purported leaked images of the device. Take the sketch posted above for example, it clearly shows volume buttons on the back of the device underneath the camera. In a host of leaked images we have seen that G2’s volume buttons are likely to be underneath its camera. Furthermore, the sketch resembles the device that LG has teased in an official video. The LG G2 is said to have a 5.2 inch full HD display, a Snapdragon 800 processor with presumably 3GB of RAM. [Image via UnwiredView]
