galaxy_note_tablet_FCC_12

Trying to satisfy consumers of all tastes, Samsung is likely producing a new tablet part of their Galaxy Note line. And in true Note fashion, the screen is going to be… bigger. This tablet is rumored to have a 12.2-inch screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600. Powering it would be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz with 3GB of RAM. As you can see in the image above, LTE Band 5 is supported, pointing to Korean carriers; therefore, it is unknown if it will make it to U.S. shores. Keep your eyes open for this device. Then again, it’s so large it would be hard not to notice.

The Nokia tablet just got a little closer to reality as the FCC posted a SAR report for the RX-114 made by Nokia. RX-114 is the a name we’ve heard before – a Windows RT tablet powered by Snapdragon 800 – but the device seems to prefer being called Lumia 2520 these days.

Nexus 5 camera could sport Optical Image Stabilization

Nexus_5_FCC_Leak_42_4892

Now that we know that the Nexus 5 is made by LG and is probably based on the G2, it’s likely to sport Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The phone is shown in all its glory via the FCC, and it appears it has the same camera module found on the LG G2.

A great camera is one feature that never found its way onto a Nexus device. The Galaxy Nexus had a terrible camera, and although the Nexus 4 was much better, it was nothing to write home about. If you remember, back in February, Senior Vice President of Engineering, Vic Gundotra said the following about Nexus phones…..“We are committed to making Nexus phones with insanely great cameras. Just you wait and see.” Well it appears that we just might see pretty soon. I’m looking forward to a Nexus device that can take amazing pictures, how about your guys?

ZTE Nubia Z5 NX501 passes through FCC, could launch in United States relatively soon

ZTE_Nubia

A device going by the name “SRQ-NX501″ recently passed through the halls of the FCC, which is more than likely the ZTE Nubia Z5 NX501.

The device will work on both GSM and WCDMA networks, and is Bluetooth and WLAN capable.

The China version of the device comes with a 5-inch display, a full HD 1080p resolution, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, has 2GB RAM, features a 13MP camera, and ships with 4.1.2 Jelly Bean.

Rumors say that the American variant will feature an upgraded processor, the Snapdragon 800. This is quite the surprise, since in the past, Chinese devices making their way over to the United States normally have downgraded specs, including RAM and processor speed.

FCC docs out likely Nexus successor from LG

Newly discovered documents from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are providing a clear look at what may ultimately prove to be the Nexus 4 successor. The device, which comes from LG, resembles the Verizon G2 and looks an awful lot like the mystery smartphone from the Google video. With design cues that don’t stray much from the LG Nexus 4, it could be the so-called Nexus 5. Assuming, that is, the name of the phone.

We might look for this device to show up in the coming weeks with a brand new flavor of Android. The 4.4 KitKat release was announced however we don’t know what the features or details are yet.

With the $100 price cut and selling through of the 8GB model we get the sense that Google is clearing the shelves for a new device. Toss in the recent string of rumors, refutations, and back-tracking, and you can see why the Nexus 5 chatter is heating up!

Nvidia Tegra TAB spotted at FCC with Tegra 4 and Stylus


nvidia-tegra-tab-p1640-2013-09-09-02

Who needs leaks when we have the lovely fellows at the FCC revealing unknown devices to the public? In this case, a 7″ Nvidia tablet was reviewed by the FCC, packing an unknown variant of the Tegra 4 and a stylus with apps to back it up. Not convinced yet? The 1280×800 resolution will most certainly not do the trick but a stock version of Jelly Bean, front HD camera and HDMI might turn this device into a very viable option for all the folks looking to buy a new mid-range tablet. Also, this baby brings us a pretty sizable 4100 mAh battery, which is quite sufficient for a 7″ device.

It is not clear if Nvidia will sell this device through another OEM or add it to its own portfolio but what we do know is that Google’s latest Nexus 7 will soon have serious competition.

Alleged Nexus 5 spotted at FCC


nexus5fcc_leak

The next-gen Nexus smartphone may have just been found at the FCC. According to details in the federal listing, the LG D820 is an LTE handset with support for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Additional specs look to include a 4.96-inch display, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Looking at the firmware and OS info, we learn that the LG smartphone is running Key Lime Pie, which is now officially known as Android 4.4 KitKat.

Factor in that the pictures match up with the phone found in Google’s KitKat video and the recent Nexus 4 price drop, we’re totally on board with a so-called Nexus 5 in the near term. We are getting ahead of ourselves, of course, as it’s presumptuous to say that LG or Google will name the phone the Nexus 5. Remember the lessons from saying that Key Lime Pie is Android 5.0?
