A couple new entries in the FCC database for LG devices suggests the LG G4 has cleared regulatory approval on the way to market from Verizon and Sprint. The new entries are for devices with model numbers VS986 and LS991, although the entries do not mention “LG G4″ specifically as the phone model. However, sources note that the LG G3 on Verizon has the model number VS985 and on Sprint it gets model number LS990. So the new devices have had their model number increased by one relative to the LG G3, which suggests the new devices are the LG G4 for each of the carriers.
Neither carrier has released information about availability of the LG G4. However, sources think Sprint will hit the market in June and they do have a pre-registration page already setup. Meanwhile, no date has been set for Verizon
