The LG G3 will apparently become available at Verizon on July 17, following quite a long wait after itsofficial unveiling in late May.

The release date has surfaced thanks to a leaked screenshot purportedly showing an internal message from Verizon's systems.

LG G3 to land at Verizon on July 17 after a week of pre-orders-86DIGI

The smartphone is expected to go up for pre-order on July 10, exactly one week before it officially becomes available.

There's no word right now about when other carriers might get the smartphone, as this is the first launch-related bit of info for the LG G3 in the US. However, the handset will eventually be offered by all of the 'big four' - so expect to see it at AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint too.

The LG G3 is the first device from a well known manufacturer to sport a touchscreen with 2560x1440 resolution, and this will probably prove to be its main selling point (at least for spec fanatics).
