Another Motorola X-Phone variant, model XT1060 has passed through the FCC recently. The XT1060 version sports CDMA frequencies, LTE Band 4, Band 13 and GSM capabilities. We know that the XT1060 is the Verizon Wireless variant because radio frequencies 850 MHz and 1900 MHz just happen to be used by Verizon Wireless for CDMA capabilities, LTE Band 13 is be used by Verizon, and they have future plans for Band 4. Like most current Verizon smartphones, you’ll be able to take the X-Phone overseas or use it here in the US on GSM networks due to ‘Global’ support. Sadly, FCC filings don’t reveal all too much when it comes to internal hardware specifications, leaving much to the unknown.
While we don’t know a lot about the X-Phone, as we’ve seen some conflicting reports, it is rumored to be a mid-range phone that’s affordable to the masses. Whether that’s true or not is yet to be seen. What we do know is that the X-Phone is said to run stock Android, thanks in part to a Google’s Motorola acquisition. We’ve also seen evidence of this time and time again, such as the image above from Tinhte.vn and other leaks.
Besides Verizon, we’ve seen Sprint and AT&T variants pass through the FCC. This would be new territory for Motorola, launching a major device across multiple carriers. When do we think we’ll see the X-Phone? I was told sometime next month by an anonymous source. Who knows?
