LG G3 release date tipped for July 17 on Verizon

Pre-orders could start July 10


Verizon may start selling the LG's new flagship, the LG G3, starting on July 17.

The ever-reliable Twitter tipster Evleaks posted an image of an internal Verizon document noting that pre-orders for LG's latest are to begin on July 10.

Following the online reservations, the faux-metal handsets will supposedly start shipping exactly one week later.

So far the big four US carriers have only announced potential plans

LG's best phone yet?

Although we've only had a short amount of time with the LG G3, it already has us impressed with a hot, albeit plastic, body. The handset also has one of the mobile's industry's first 2560 x 1440 QHD resolution screens.

On paper the handset has checked off almost all the standards for high-end Android phones, including a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage.

Users that pony up for the top-end 32GB model will also have 3GB of RAM and an Adreno 330 GPU at their disposal to use.

Around the back users will find a 13MP camera with an optical image stabilized lens that should help reduce any camera shaking while taking photos. The smartphone also has a 2.1MP front snapper that's not very high-resolution but selfie takers will be able to trigger the shutter by making a fist with their hand.
