DROID Turbo/Moto X Play passes through FCC

DROID Turbo/Moto X Play passes through FCC
Because of the rash of leaks that we got about the Nexus 6 and the Moto S back in August, word has it that Motorola has changed their policies to only push devices through the FCC about two days before the device is set to be announced. Today, what appears to be the DROID Turbo has just gone through FCC regulations.

The FCC filing is for a  Motorola device with the model number XT1254, which matches the leaked DROID Turbo model number we've seen before. The odd thing is that the filing lists support for LTE Bands 2, 4, 5, and 17, and GSM and WCDMA frequencies at 850MHz, 1700MHz, and 1900MHz. Those bands match up with AT&T and T-Mobile; but, the DROID Turbo would be a Verizon device. Of course, we did also hear that there could be a variant of the DROID Turbo released for AT&T, possibly under the name Moto X Play. The dimensions of the device here also match what is expected by the DROID Turbo.

We'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one as it develops, because the announcement of new DROID devices is expected, though we don't know when it might be.

Which just confuses me further, because that model number was leaked to be the 5.2" Droid Turbo. Which I believe will be announced any day now.

Not a Verizon device because of the bands but probably Att version of Droid Turbo

That I could believe. Verizon is due for a new Droid flagship, but it won't be 5.9". Let AT&T have the Moto phablet. Same hardware, different sizes.

This is almost identical to the Droid Turbo except for the carrier bands. All the relevant info points to the Turbo (and this device as well) being a 5.2" screened device. The measurements on the FCC is the total size, not just the screen. So these won't be phablets.

Wow I can't believe people are actually going with this report. It's NOT the Nexus. Look at the dimensions and all the bands it support.

Well I have no problem with the people responding, but I do have a problem with the editors who only seem to care about pageviews instead of doing some f*ing research.

Exactly! This will just confuse people even more.

Phonearena is talking about the mobile device carrying FCC ID IHDT56PK2 which was approved by the FCC today! The mobile device carrying FCC ID IHDT56PK2 is electrically equivalent to the certified device carrying FCC ID IHDT56PK1. The device under FCC ID IHDT56PK1 comes with code name "Quark" and model number "XT1254". It is headed to Verizon. The mobile device carrying FCC ID IHDT56PK2 is the ATT/T-mobile verison of the XT1254.

So we've seen leaks of two similar Motorola devices. 5.2" Droid Turbo with Snapdragon 805 and quad HD 5.9" Moto S with Snapdragon 805 and quad HD Why are we so eager for the latter to be a Nexus? The Nexus 5 isn't even a year old. If Google waits a couple more months, y'all could have an even more kickass Nexus.

It's an established, annual thing. Google IS releasing a new Nexus phone alongside Android L this year. Unfortunately there literally isn't ANY way around it.

I was thinking of comments here on PA that since L is 64-bit capable, Google should ship the new Nexus phone with a 64-bit processor. Obviously if the N6 is a Moto S clone, that won't be the case.

I know, I wish they'd do it too but there's no way it's happening this early. The Nexus 9 will be the only stock 64 bit experience for a while unless Google surprises us this summer with a S810 nexus. They'll probably wait until fall though.

what's the point of a Nexus smartphone released by Motorola (Nexus 6) which looks just like another Motorola phone released about the same time (S)? Both are cheap (in the US), unlocked and runs stock android Google should've gone with Sony or Lenovo this time tbh

Errr to make money, duh. Moto isn't owned by Lenovo til 2015 so Google wants to make as much money as they can from it...

If your answer is "to make money duh" You obviously dont know what you're talking about. How many devices use Android?.......Google will continue to make money from motorola even after they've left.

So once an item has went through the FCC how long before it's released? What the average time frame for MOTO phones?

I think those wanting to buy an AT&T or T-Mobile versions are out of luck for a GSM version of the Verizon Droid Turbo. Verizon has an exclusive on this model - worldwide it seems. Motorola just not to smart! Verizon is going to the same thing it done to the Nokia Icon.

Motorola needs to hurry up if they are going to make a AT&T and Tmobile version because I'm about to make a purchase on a phone. At least make an announcement.
