    If you've been following the most recent developments in the rumors surrounding the Nexus 5, you've no doubt heard about the mysterious device spotted in a video on Google's campus, as well as how that handset appeared to match some hardware depicted in the FCC paperwork for LG's model D820. Since then, there had been a little uncertainty surrounding that identification, though more recently it had looked like we were back on track. Now some new imagery has hit the FCC's database, apparently showing us more of the same hardware. First up: this discovery's a little weird; it all shows up ...

    We started off the month with a spate of developments concerning the next Nexus smartphone, presumed to launch as the Nexus 5. We saw some hardware in a Google video, and then an FCC filing for the LG D820 sure appeared to nicely align with that find. All the pieces of evidence was seeming to reinforce each other, until @evleaks came forward with a leak identifying the LG D821 as a CDMA G2 variant, implying that the D820 might just be more of the same. A new development at the FCC helps to set all this straight, with the publication of the docs for the D821 itself. The big news here? The ...

    Motorola has its Moto X out right now, and there's also the three new Droid Ultra-series models over at Verizon. Beyond that, we've been following rumors of the so-called DVX, tipped to emerge as a more affordable alternative to the Moto X, and one that may see broader global availability. Beyond that, though, we haven't had a great sense of where the company's headed next. Today we get an answer in the form of another mystery that's been going around, with the paperwork for a new Motorola device showing up at the FCC. At first glance this seems like a smartphone, but the paperwork ...

    Beyond the IFA, and all the new hardware that brought to light, last week also marked the arrival of some new information possibly pertaining to the release of the next Nexus smartphone, with the publication of some FCC certification paperwork that might just be for an LG-made Nexus 5. While that Nexus name itself didn't pop up, there was a whole lot of circumstantial evidence, not the least of which were some case images that sure seemed to match the camera placement we saw in the image of the possible Nexus 5 candidate from a video shot on Google's campus. This week, however, we hearing ...

For the moment, nothing's yet official, but based on all the info to date, one Android fan assembled the above image, ...

    We've been kicking around the name Motorola DVX for a while now, first hearing about it back in June as the name for hardware that might be a lower-cost version of the Moto X. Since then, we've heard a few details about the handset, such as unlike how the Moto X's custom backplates are factory-set, the DVX might allow the user to pop them out at his or her convenience. Today we find a whole lot of new DVX info to sort through, including FCC documentation and some early retailer spottings. The FCC just published the certification docs for Motorola models XT1032, XT1033, and XT1035, noting ...

    Intel is doing better and better at getting its SoCs into mobile devices. After a slow start, we began to see the pack pick up a little this year, with Intel scoring some wins like getting its chips into new Samsung tablets. We fully expect to see Intel continue to push for the use of its silicon in such models, but now a new FCC regulatory filing has us thinking about Intel building its own hardware from the ground up, with the appearance of paperwork for Intel model CZ120. The docs are unambiguous about the nature of this device, plainly identifying it as an Intel smartphone. There's no ...

    For the better part of the summer, we've been fielding rumors suggesting that LG was about to make an overdue return to the tablet game, releasing a new Android model. We've heard a possible name, seeing S Pad show up in some trademark filings, as well as came across a likely model number, with the LG-V500/LG-V507L surfacing on the Bluetooth SIG site. We still don't have the whole picture, but today things really start coming together, with the discovery of the tablet's FCC paperwork. We've got LG model LG-V500 here, and as the schematics make crystal clear, we're looking at a tablet. This ...

    With all the leaks we've been seeing in recent weeks, it's sure felt like Nokia's first 41-megapixel Windows Phone model, so far known by codename EOS, was nearly ready to launch. Last week, we learned of invitations going out for a July 11 Nokia event that sure seemed to hint that it could mark the announcement of the EOS. Today we add some more fuel to that launch fire, with an unknown Nokia handset passing through the FCC that sure could be the EOS. Nokia model RM-877 includes support for HSPA+ on the 850, 1700, and 1900MHz bands, as well as LTE on bands 2, 4, 5, and 17. Bands 4 and 17 ...

    Ready to add a little diversity to your smartphone choices? We're starting to see a new breed of platforms get ready for commercial launches this year, and Mozilla's Firefox OS sure sounds like one of the more ambitious. It's already attracted interest from a number of OEMs, and quite a few handsets have been formally announced. Today, one of those early ones sees the publication of its FCC paperwork as it gets ready to go up for sale. ZTE announced its Open back at the Mobile World Congress, and while – like so many of these first-round Firefox OS phones – it's a bit underpowered ...

    The rumored HTC Tiara Windows Phone handset first popped-up back in February. Later, we heard from Sprint that it would get a late start on Windows Phone 8 with a pair of smartphones, and a rumor suggested one would be the Tiara. Eventually, we caught wind of a phone identifying itself as "HTCP0881_Sprint" and wondered if it this was the Tiara we were looking at. Now that same model's back, getting its FCC certification and preparing to launch on Sprint. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to match up the HTC model PO88100 which just saw its FCC paperwork go public with that HTCP0881_Sprint ...

    A couple weeks back, NVIDIA made with the details of how its Shield Android gaming handset would arrive. The system will ship next month, and pre-orders are already open, letting you secure one of the $350 devices. It sure looks like everything's going smoothly with preparing for Shield's retail availability, as we just saw the handheld console pick up its FCC certification. Don't let that FCC business confuse you – even without cellular data connectivity, Shield still needs to stop by the FCC in order to clear its WiFi operation. We're excited to see Shield finally arrive for a number ...
