FCC certifies the LG G5 for Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint
The LG G5  has finally received FCC certification in the U.S. LG's new flagship (with its modular design) has been approved for Verizon (LG VS987), AT&T (LG H820), T-Mobile (LG H830) and Sprint (LG LS992). The device is expected to be launched in the U.S. in early April. One U.S. carrier that has not had its LG G5 variant approved is U.S. Cellular. The fifth largest wireless operator in the states, U.S. Cellular will reportedly release the new handset as model number LG US992 on April 1st, with pre-orders starting on March 28th.

The LG G5 features a 5.3-inch display with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a pixel density of 554ppi. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 820 SoC, featuring a quad-core 2.2GHz and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of native storage (23GB available to the end user). A 16MP rear-facing camera comes with an aperture of f/1.8, and OIS is on board. An 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. The removable 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 6.0 is pre-installed. The LG G5 comes with a fingerprint sensor, and is just 7.3mm thick. Its metal clad body comes in Gray, Pink or Gold.

With the FCC certification out of the way, LG can now concentrate on important matters, such as launching the handset in the U.S. where it will take on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung's new high-end models already have a head start. But LG is offering a modular design with the LG G5 that allows users to add features and functions by simply sliding in a new "Friend." These accessories offer users of the phone the ability to quickly upgrade the camera, upgrade audio capabilities, and pop in a freshly charged battery.
