What LTE bands does the Droid Turbo 2 support?

I'm planning a trip to Japan next summer, and I was leaning toward the Turbo 2 because of its battery life (I expect to be away from the hotel for many hours at at a time). However, the list of supported LTE bands is quite limited and looks like it would have limited support on the Japanese LTE network.

The international version of this phone (the Moto X Force) supports a much longer list of LTE bands. I'm just wondering if anybody knows whether the Turbo 2 is really limited to such a small list of supported LTE bands, or whether there might be unofficial support for others. Probably not, but I figured I'd ask. Otherwise I think I'm going to have to (reluctantly) pass on this phone and look elsewhere.

  • CDMA:
    • 800, 1900 MHz
  • GSM:
    • 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
  • UMTS:
    • 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz
  • FDD LTE:
    • 700 (band 13), 850 (band 5), 1700/2100 (band 4), 1800 (band 3), 1900 (band 2), 2600 (band 7) MHz
  • Data:
    • LTE Cat 4 (150/50 Mbit/s), HSPA (unspecified), HSUPA, UMTS, EDGE, EV-DO Rev.A


That's the list.  Remember, this is a Verizon-branded phone.  There is some global compatibility, but in the end, it might as well be a Verizon-only phone.
