Two possible LG G3 variants appear at the FCC

Two possible LG G3 variants appear at the FCC
Two new LG phones have just been added to the FCC's database – models D850 and D851. Enigmatic at a glance, the two model names are believed to belong to the highly-anticipated LG G3 smartphone. The former has made several appearances already. Back in March, an LG D850 was seen in a UA profile, with a 1440 by 2560 pixel display at that, then a benchmark result from the very same handset came up, confirming the QHD resolution of its screen. As for the D851, this appears to be a G3 variant with support for a different set of radio bands. It might even be a carrier-specific model. 

Speaking of which, it is stated in the FCC papers that the LG D850 can run on LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7, and 17. The D851 supports LTE bands 2, 4, 7, and 17, according to its filing. Furthermore, both models have removable batteries, unlike the international LG G2. The D850 and the D851 are 5.76 inches (146.3 millimeters) tall by 2.94 inches (74.6 millimeters) wide, which pretty much confirms that they are two variants of the same device.  

The LG G3 is expected to be announced on May 27 at an official press event, which we will be attending to. Until then, you can keep an eye on our LG G3 rumor round-up for all the latest on LG's upcoming flagship.

I do because i thought it would have been smaller than M8 but bigger than S5. I hate this big phones so much.... Gonna wait for Sony Z2 compact instead.

Remember this G3 has a 5.5" display compared to the M8's 5" so still a good screen to phone ratio

There's still a chance of that... GSM arena has the size nearly identical to the s5

People judge the phone before we even know what the size is going to be lol. 5.5 is a fine screen size. It's all about how compact lg is going to make the overall phone which I'm sure we will see proof of on the 27th
