Verizon roadmap to include LG Cayman, Droid Fighter

Two new smartphones have surfaced for Verizon's spring lineup, but which models will they be?

A pair of upcoming handsets have appeared in a Verizon Wireless document, offering clues of two new Android handsets that could debut in the coming months.

Droid Life has obtained a screenshot of the document, which shows a Droid Fighter and LG Cayman listed for release later this spring. Which particular handsets we'll actually get, however, remains to be seen.

LG has been on a tear these last few days, announcing an entire lineup of Android devices ahead of next week's Mobile World Congress. It stands to reason that the Cayman could be any one of these newly revealed models. While enthusiasts will be eyeing the Optimus 4X HD and hoping for a Verizon iteration, I suspect it will ultimately end up at T-Mobile as a G2X successor.

An Optimus Vu, on the other hand, could make for a decent alternative to AT&T's Samsung Galaxy Note. There's also the Optimus 3D Max, though AT&T seems a better fit for a Thrill 4G successor.

With so many Droid models belonging to Motorola, the company is the likely source for the Droid Fighter. Then again, there have been Droid products from Samsung, LG, and HTC over the past few years so it's tough to be absolutely certain.

Some readers may recall a rumored HTC Fireball handset set to arrive at Verizon in the coming weeks. Expected to offer 4G LTE connectivity, it's possible that it is the recently leaked Incredible-esque device. On the contrary, it makes more sense to name it a Droid Incredible 3 than to introduce a new product name. Things may get even muddier with Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, approaching in a matter of days. We could be in for a host of new smartphone announcements that have yet to be leaked online. Any one of these new superphones would sound good with a Droid Fighter moniker.
