Palm PVG100 phone with Android 8.1 Oreo gets certified

Palm PVG100 phone with Android 8.1 Oreo gets certified
Disclaimer: The phone in the picture above is NOT the new Palm PVG100, but the old Palm Pre 2.

TCL purchased Palm more than three years ago, but the Chinese company decided to keep the brand buried rather than reviving it. TCL owns the license to manufacture and sell BlackBerry smartphones, which seems to be what it's been focusing on in the last couple of years.

The good news is Palm's time might have come, as a new device tagged with model number PVG100 has just received its FCC (Federal Communications Commission) and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications.

Unfortunately, nothing about the phone's specs has transpired from the official documents filed at these regulatory agencies. However, we do know that the Palm PVG100 is a smartphone that runs Android 8.1 Oreo, which means that TCL will most likely launch it this year.

We've heard about a mysterious Palm smartphone that could be headed to Verizon back in March. Combining that rumor with today's data, we wouldn't be surprised to see Palm being revived at some point this year.
