A Motorola “Touch Computer” Hits the FCC with Two Battery Options, Android 4.1.2 and 4G LTE

Here’s something interesting. There’s a new Motorola device hitting the FCC today. It’s known as a “touch computer” whatever that actually means. The device passed through the FCC with 2 battery options. There’s an option for a 2940mAh battery and another for a 4410mAh battery. I’ll take the 4410mAh battery.

Some of the other specifics include LTE along with GSM radios. The LTE bands that are supported are 2, 4, 5, and 17 along with 850 and 1900 GSM bands. So that makes us believe that it’s headed to AT&T, and possibly T-Mobile. The FCC filing also tells us there’s a rear camera, Bluetooth, NFC, and WiFi on this one as well. Along with Android 4.1.2, which is rather surprising to see.

As far as the dimensions go, we’re looking at 138x70mm. So that’s about the same size as the LG G2. What’s interesting about this is the two battery sizes. Perhaps we might see another version of the Ultra and Maxx in the GSM variety. We’ve also heard that Motorola will be making a Nexus device for the fall, so maybe we’ll see a Motorola Nexus and a Nexus Maxx, that would be cool and would give Google a few price points aside from the storage options. And since it supports GSM only, it could very well be a Nexus, but remember that’s my own speculation.

We don’t know exactly what this device is yet, but it’s definitely got our attention. I’ve always loved the idea of the Droid Maxx, Droid Razr Maxx HD and the Droid Razr Maxx. Especially since I love devices with great battery life like the Note 2 and Galaxy Mega. I’ve long wanted a GSM version of the Maxx, since it’s a Verizon exclusive. Perhaps this could be the device I’ve been waiting for. The only thing that would make this even better is if Motorola did an Ultra and Maxx for Google and made them Nexus devices. Of course, with a better build quality. Anyone else agree? You can check out all the information from the FCC here.
