FCC visit by LG G2 hints at which U.S. carriers will get the phone
The LG G2 is going to be introduced by LG on August 7th, but an FCC visit made by the phone might have already given us a clue as to which U.S. carriers the phone will call home. Using the code name D801, the eagerly anticipated top-shelf model that visited the FCC offers LTE and HSPA connectivity that matches the networks owned by T-Mobile, and AT&T in the U.S., as well as the major Canadian carriers.

We have already seen the phone in various pictures and video and a unique placement of the volume rocker has it on the back along with other buttons. It leaves the phone sans buttons on front. Interestingly, one of the units that we saw pictured earlier was running on Sprint's pipeline, and considering that the LG Optimus G, the predecessor of the LG G2, was offered by the mobile operator, we'd be very surprised to see Sprint bypassed for the sequel.

The LG G2 will have a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD) which presents a pixel density of 424ppi pixel density. A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is under the hood with 3GB of RAM on board. The phone has a 13MP rear-facing shooter.

Love my Optimus G, might have to pony up for this in a few months if Sprint lands it again...LG is forcing customers to take notice with these specs

Those specs you're referring to are outdated, announced back in January 2013 so it goes to reason that it's been changed and updated to the G2 since LG has also officially announced dropping the " Optimus " name out of their lineup of Smartphone devices.
