New Nexus Player? Nope, definitely the same at FCC

The last markdowns are in place for the Nexus Player at many retail stores. ASUS isn’t making a device anymore that used to be sold at the Google Store. Now what?

Apparently, it’s due for a software update.

Liliputing first reported its findings of another application at the FCC for a device looking like another Nexus Player. But don’t get your hopes up. The thing is that this application retains the same FCC ID code as the original product that was approved on October 19, 2014. Why would ASUS submit a new FCC application for an old product?

Well, the FCC currently requires that if a manufacturer decides to make changes that would cut the performance of a device, it needs what’s called a Class II Permissive Change. And indeed, we see that the records don’t reflect an “Original Equipment” application on June 1, 2016.

Which means that Nexus Players might be getting a software update soon or have already gotten it in the intervening days. But hey, if you want a new Nexus Player, you can hope.
