While we already have plenty of upcoming Motorola smartphones on our radar, sometimes one still manages to sneak up on us, not spotted early-on via some blurrycam leaks. That’s the case with the Motorola i940, which just put in an unexpected FCC appearance, offering us a nice series of images of the handset.

The Android smartphone is a bit reminiscent of the Photon/Electrify with its angled corners, but featuring a much smaller display. That clears room for begin/end call buttons, an oddity on modern Androids. Even more unusual: according to the FCC certification, the i940 is an iDEN-only model at a time when even Sprint is transitioning to CDMA for its PTT devices. The phone supports iDEN connectivity on the 800MHz and 900MHz bands.

The documentation available for the i940 is surprisingly comprehensive, including a pair of user manuals. Though they’re marked as drafts, the accompanying cover letters attest to them both being a “final production-intended version”. Unfortunately, they lack any detailed listing of the phone’s tech specs. We can see that the handset will have a five-megapixel camera, but that’s about it. We’ll be looking out for more on the i940 now that we’re aware of its existence, including a proper name for the smartphone, and information on what carrier will pick it up.
