FCC docs could reveal Sprint Motorola X phone


Earlier this month, we finally started to see all the rumors surrounding Motorola’s X phone come together to take physical form, upon the discovery of imagery of an “XFON” apparently getting ready for AT&T. Then we saw what appeared to be the same handset hit the FCC as Motorola model XT1058, again showing support for AT&T’s network. Since then, there have been signs that the XFON might also be in the works for other carriers, like a CDMA version arriving as model XT1060. Today, we’ve got yet another XFON contender to look at, with a Motorola model XT1056 for Sprint making its own FCC showing.

That model number alone suggests a relationship to these other models; perhaps the CDMA XT1060 is the version for Verizon, with Sprint getting this XT1056. Unfortunately, the line rendering of the handset in the document showing label placement isn’t nearly as detailed as the XT1058’s, so we can’t make a direct visual comparison.

Beyond the standard bands for Sprint’s network, the XT1056 appears to have hardware support for global roaming on HSPA+ networks.
