Moto X+1/Moto X Play passes through the FCC

Moto X+1/Moto X Play passes through the FCC
A mystery Motorola device has just passed through the FCC today. We're not exactly sure what it is, but the evidence available limits the possibilities of what it could be to just two devices: the smaller Moto S (aka X Play) or the Moto X+1. Both devices need to pass through the FCC before release, but only one is expected to be released anytime soon.

The fact that it is a Motorola device is pretty easy to note, because the filing is directly attributed to Motorola. The reason why we believe it to be either the Moto X+1 or Moto X Play is because of the dimensions listed in the filing, which show the device height to be 140 mm (5.51-inches), the width is 72.6 mm (2.86-inches), which are dimensions a bit smaller than the LG G2, which is a 5.2-inch device. Given that, we can't imagine this device is any larger than 5.2-inches, meaning it has to either be the Moto X+1 or the Moto X Play. The X+1 is expected to be announced next week, so that makes the most sense. 

The FCC filing only covers the AT&T and T-Mobile cellular spectrum, so there are still a couple more variants of the Moto X+1 to expect in regulatory filings.

What? That can't be right or it must have no bezel. I mean that would be a good bit smaller than the G3, and it would have a screen that's .4 inches bigger? Something's fishy

I hope it's not. About time LG had some competition with slim bezels :)

I did the math using this website (prinds(dot)com/tools/screenDimensions.htm)and discovered the dimensions are impossible. A 5.87 inch display with zero bezel is a bit over 73mm wide, and 130mm tall. So unless Google found out a way to warp space and time, this phone's screen is smaller than it appears to be.

But it doesn't mention screen size though

It did before they changed the article.

Actually, it's not impossible. They wouldn't necessarily need to warp space and time. But they could wrap the display around the sides like the Samsung's YOUM concept. But of course I don't expect that to happen.

As the commenter before me mentioned, there is no way that this phone is smaller than the G3 and has a much bigger display. It just isn't possible...

It actually has a 5.2" display. But let's not spoil the fun.

That sounds a lot more reasonable...

Maybe the "X" is for eXpandable :)

The dimensions can't possibly be right. The Note 3 is 151.2mm tall and the Galaxy S5 is 142mm tall. The G2 is 138.5mm tall though and has a 5.2" screen. Either the screen size is wrong or the height is wrong.

I wonder why Google finally decided to use Moto to make their Nexus flagship. Right before Lenovo ownership at that.

So as not to make other manufacturers angry, I suppose. It's rumored that Samsung had a big role in the reason Google is selling Moto.
