Galaxy S7 Edge Will Have a 3600mAh Battery, According to FCC

Yesterday, a new batch of FCC filings popped up for new models of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. These appear to be the Korean and international variants (FCC ID is A3LSMG935KOR), which likely only differ slightly (like in band support) from the batch of US models that cruised through last week. We typically wouldn’t take a second look through new filings, but depending on who is doing the testing, we often see minor differences in how things are reported. Because of those differences, there tend to be slip-ups that reveal new information.

In the new Galaxy S7 Edge listings, the FCC label document has confirmed to us the battery size for Samsung’s new curved edge phone. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the regular S7.  (more…)

AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Hit FCC

Once Samsung announce the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge in Barcelona on February 21, the world will be anxiously awaiting their arrival for purchase at local retailers and carriers. Early reports suggest that March 11 could be the day that Samsung’s new flagships arrive in stores, but before that happens, we need to see pieces fall into place – like each stop off at the FCC for approval. Today, that happened.

According to FCC documents for Samsung devices under model numbers SM-G930 and SM-G935, we should be all set for launch. As a reminder, the Galaxy S7 is SM-G930 and the S7 Edge is SM-G935. The FCC IDs for each are A3LSMG930US and A3LSMG935US, respectively.  (more…)

Nexus 6P Hits FCC as Well With Support for All US Carriers, Including Verizon

Following the Nexus 5X’s appearance at the FCC on Friday, the bigger, more premium brother has done the same in preparation for tomorrow’s event. Yep, the Nexus 6P has arrived. Not that this FCC document is giving us much in the way of new information, thanks to that mega leak that showed up over the weekend, but still, it’s nice to see the phone become official and ready for launch.

So what do we know now? A couple of things.  (more…)

Nexus 5X Hits FCC With All US Carrier Bands, Including Verizon

The LG Nexus 5X stopped off at the FCC today, which is a good sign since Google is preparing to unveil the phone publicly next Tuesday. We know that it’s the Nexus 5X because the model numbers mentioned throughout (LG-H790 and LG-H791) match up to the Amazon listing we saw earlier in the week. The phones also show support for all sorts of wireless bands, even Verizon, just like Nexus phones have for the past couple of years.  (more…)

Motorola “Smart Watch” Hits FCC, Presumably the Next Moto 360

According to a published filing on the FCC website, it appears a possible sequel to last year’s Moto 360 smartwatch from Motorola just went through its paces. With test reports filed for Bluetooth and WiFi (802.11b/g/n), and the details stating that testing took place on a “smart watch” for Motorola Mobility, evidence suggests we may not be too far away from the company’s followup wearable.  (more…)
