The FCC today approved Sprint's version of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S 4 phone. The approval documents show support for GSM and WCDMA, in additional to Sprint's CDMA and LTE networks, indicating that the phone is intended to have global roaming capability. Last year's Galaxy S III for Sprint was the only Galaxy S III for a top-tier carrier without global roaming. The FCC also approved the Galaxy S 4 variant for U.S. Cellular (and, most likely, Cricket); it does not appear to support overseas networks.

embedded sim?

I hope not
That would really be a buzz kill.
International roaming rates are a real bankrupt to ones wallet.
Better off to get an international SIM or purchase one in the country of travel.

This looks like Verizon's variant, not Sprint's

Looking at the docs for FCC ID A3LSCHR970, it has LTE on bands 12, 5, 4 and 2. That's definitely a Verizon unit, not Sprint.
