HTC Fireball LG Spectrum world phone support

Earlier this week, we first got wind of a Verizon-bound handset dubbed the HTC Fireball. There wasn't a ton of information about the Fireball to be had when it first leaked, save for the fact that it's a 4G LTE device, but today we can add one more feature to its rumored spec list. According to a screenshot sent to Droid-Life, the Fireball will be global-ready when it lands, which just so happens to be something that we've yet to see out of an LTE Verizon smartphone. A separate leaked image has shown that the LG Spectrum will also pack in world phone capabilities, a rumor that's backed by the presence of GSM/HSPA support in the device's FCC filing.

So it looks like Verizon may soon be getting itself a pair of global LTE handsets. Cool! Unfortunately, we still don't know much about what makes the Fireball tick. The Spectrum, on the other hand, we know quite a bit about, like that it'll feature a 4.5-inch 720p display and 1.5GHz dual-core processor. There's still no word on the most important aspect of either device — the release date — but you can bet that we'll let you know more when we do.
