AT&T’s LG G2 unveiled by the FCC as the D801?

Today the FCC has approved a new and mysterious LG D801 smartphone. Which might turn out to be the G2 flagship that the South Korean company will officially announce on August 7.

The FCC doesn’t usually reveal much about important devices while approving them, but now it posted a sketch of the D801. And this certainly looks like the G2 teased by LG in an official video yesterday. Check out the two images below.

The LG G2 has volume buttons on the back. And we can also see them on the D801, just under the rear camera.

According to the FCC, the D801 comes with AT&T-friendly LTE connectivity (bands 4 and 17). The second largest US carrier is already selling the LG Optimus G Pro (since May), and it will most likely want the G2 as well. Could this D801 be the G2 for AT&T? I’d say yes.

Apart from the unusual buttons on the back, the G2 features a 5.2 inch Full HD display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,700 mAh battery.

Update: info regarding the D801 has been around since the end of March, when the handset was tipped to have a Full HD screen, Qualcomm MSM8974 CPU (which, of course, is the Snapdragon 800), and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. It definitely looks like the G2 to me.
