A new filing has appeared with the US FCC for a previously unheard of handset from Motorola.
Sadly, the filing doesn’t reveal a name for the device, it just ha a model number of 5137 as well as some dimension. The handset measures 153,6 x 75.3mm and has a diagonal measurement across of 161.8mm – which should be around 6.3in by our reckoning; a pretty sizeable beast, however, that’s not the display size, which will be smaller, meaning it may fit the description of the rumoured 5.5in Motorola “Kinzie” (codename). That device is believed to pack a QHD resolution.
In terms of the spec, the phone has a massive range of LTE bands supported – virtually all of the major ones – and it also supports MIMO Wi-Fi and LTE-Advanced, which would suggest a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series chip, likely the Snapdragon 808 or Snapdragon 810. Droid Life has also spotted evidence that suggests the phone was tested with a Motorola Turbo Charger and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, and it may have microSD support too.
The interesting thing here is there’s no talk whatsoever of this being the new Moto X 2015. There is a lot of chatter about it being another DROID branded phone for use with US carrier networks, but it is being considered a Motorola “flagship” device which could mean it’s also destined for a rollout elsewhere. This remains unclear. Naturally if we hear any more we’ll update here.
