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…)
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.

A new Moto 360 smartwatch has yet to surface in any capacity, but I think it’s safe to say that we all expect Motorola to release one at some point within the next few months. If an FCC filing for a wireless charger that charges a “Motorola smart watch” of theirs is any indicator, maybe we’ll see the new watch at tomorrow’s event, or at the very least, within the next few weeks.

Last week, we saw almost every single US carrier variant of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ stop off at the FCC outside of those headed to Sprint. Who knows why America’s 4th largest carrier was left out, but all is good in the world now. This morning, both phones showed up at the FCC under model numbers SM-N920P (Note 5) and SM-G928P (S6 Edge+).
Information in the documents attached to the filings didn’t give us anything new in our brief scans, other than these are indeed headed for Sprint. Then again, the model numbers ending in “P” gave that away. (more…)
You know that report about Samsung moving up the launch date of the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ to give them some breathing room ahead of Apple’s next iPhone unveiling? I wouldn’t be shocked at this point if Samsung really has decided to release these two new phones earlier than originally anticipated. Yesterday, a Samsung phone under model number SM-N920 showed up at the FCC for almost every single major US carrier. We’ve got listing for T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T, just not Sprint (UPDATE: Sprint is live). If that wasn’t enough, we are also seeing listings for another model number of SM-G928 that is largely thought to be the Galaxy S6 Edge+, a bigger version of the original S6 Edge. (more…)
The last time we heard about the Huawei Watch, one of the best looking Android Wear devices to date, we were told to not expect it until September or October. For a device first unveiled on March 1, that late of a release seems like a massive delay or push-back.
This weekend, the Huawei Watch stopped by the FCC, which could be a sign that the smartwatch is finally ready, maybe even a bit earlier than anticipated. (more…)
Last week, we told you about a new Motorola device that had stopped off at the FCC looking like the company’s next unlocked flagship phone. It featured a body bigger than the DROID Turbo, supported turbo charging, 802.11ac MiMo WiFi, LTE Advanced, and almost all of the US LTE bands outside of Verizon’s. We speculated that it is the rumored 5.5-inch QHD device currently hiding under codename “Kinzie.”
This morning, after looking through a couple of other recent Motorola FCC filings that could be new Moto G, E, or DROID line variants, we’re pretty sure we found the Verizon equivalent to the phone above. Well, it may be even better than that.
Let’s talk briefly about them all. (more…)
A couple of weeks ago, we noticed two new HTC smartphones that had stopped off at the FCC on their way to Verizon. Today, another revealed itself, and yes, it’s also on its way to Big Red. What Verizon and HTC are doing with three new phones is beyond me, but that is the scenario here. (more…)
