Verizon's first LTE global handsets?
LG's Spectrum and HTC's Fireball handsets may be the first of Verizon's 4G LTE devices to offer global roaming capabilities. A leaked screenshot from Verizon's internal systems, which was posted on Droid-Life, suggests both devices have received the "global phone" designation that would allow users to take advantage of GSM networks while travelling.
Recent leaks suggest the Spectrum represents the second-generation Revolution, featuring a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 720p-capable display, and an eight-megapixel primary camera capable of shooting 1080p video. The device is said to run Android 2.3, rather than the latest Ice Cream Sandwich edition of Google's mobile OS.
Additional details surrounding the Fireball have yet to surface.
