Yes, Verizon’s LG G3 has a Removable Battery

Shortly after Verizon’s variant of the LG G3 went up for pre-order last Thursday, just as we said it would, potential owners of the device grew concerned over the idea that it may not feature a removable battery.

He also Tweeted it, in case you don’t believe us.
