Sony Xperia Z3 Passes Through FCC En Route to North America

As you all may be aware, it’s not every day we see a Sony flagship device pass through the FCC on its way to America. Most of the time, even if a Sony device does hit our shores, it is months after Europe and Asia has access, and carrier exclusivity takes its tole on most people who are even interested to begin with.

This week, it appears that the Xperia Z3 from Sony has already hit the FCC, en route to an unknown carrier here in the US. Curiously, the Xperia Z3 has yet to be made official from Sony, with previous signs pointing to the device being announced at IFA in September.  (more…)

Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime (SM-G906) Stops by FCC?

A Samsung device under the model number SM-G906 stopped by the FCC within the last few days, with support for LTE bands 17 and 5. As you may recall, the SM-G906 has long been rumored to be the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, or the premium version of Samsung’s 2014 flagship with a Quad HD display. The listing doesn’t tell us much, but does give us three potential models of G906K, G906S, and G906L to keep an eye on.  (more…)

LG G3 for Verizon Stops by FCC

Back in May, we saw LG G3 models that looked destined for AT&T stop through the FCC for approval. Yesterday, the Verizon variant joined them as the LG-VS985.

The FCC documents don’t necessarily provide anything new, since the device is 100% official, including specs and carrier availability (sort of). Instead, we get confirmation on things like LTE support on bands 4 and 13, plus roaming on GSM bands 850 and 1900.  (more…)

“All New HTC One” on Its Way to Verizon Stops by FCC, Model HTC6525LVW

An FCC listing for the “All New HTC One” or HTC One (2014) on AT&T showed up ever-so-briefly last week before being pulled. That listing has now returned, along with a somewhat similar listing that also shows AT&T LTE bands (could be unlocked or T-Mo variant) and another for Verizon. You may recall last year when HTC failed to launch their flagship on Verizon, leaving it as the only major carrier in the U.S. without it for months. I don’t think we’ll see the same misstep this time around.  (more…)
