Two new Motorola made smartphones have been caught lingering at the FCC bearing the model number XT1030 and XT1080. These don’t appear to be top of the line Moto smartphones, so don’t get your hopes up. With all the talk about the Moto X, it can be a little difficult to get excited about a potential mid-ranged offering.
The FCC listing hardly tells us anything about the two smartphones, but reveals that the XT1080 is larger than the XT1030. We also have an idea about the network frequencies supported by the smartphones. The two devices support LTE bands 4, 13 and EVDO Rev A along with WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100. There also appears to be an NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 chip inside. Needless to say, the two devices look to be tailor made for Verizon in the U.S. So expect to see a new range of Droid series of smartphones from the carrier in the coming days.
It’s very unlikely that these are the yet to be launched Moto X or the rumored Droid Ultra, but we can’t say anything for sure just yet. For now, all the focus will be firmly placed on the Moto X, at least until the device is made official.
