Yeah, I know that, but there are sellers on Ebay and Amazon saying they are selling the "international" version, is there a way to check what version I have?

It's marked on the back of the phone below the LG logo.

Thank you for your answer! Is there any identification in Android showing the version?

The person would have to reboot the phone into the bootloader (aka fastboot). on the 3rd line it'll say "VARIANT- hammerhead D820(h) 32GB" for me. I would guess that it would say D821 for international version, but I wonder if someone else can confirm for us.

To reboot into the bootloader just hold down the volume down button as your device powers on.
