A new Motorola device has hit the FC bearing model ID IHDT56MJ1, but thanks to a confidentiality request on behalf of Moto tracking down the identity of the handset might be a problem. Aside from the naming convention matching that seen on recent Motorola handsets like the Atrix 4G, what we do know about this mystery device is that it will get CDMA, EVDO, and 802.11n Wi-Fi. The CDMA radio suggests it might be headed to Verizon, but it is unlikely we are looking at the Droid Bionic.

A 180 day short term confidentiality request might hint at when the device will be released, right around mid to late summer. This would be a year from the release of the Motorola Droid X. Could we be looking at an early filing for the Droid X 2? The details of that handset remain a mystery themselves, but it is expected the phone will carry a mix of newer innards such as a dual-core processor and a possible 4G LTE radio with the stylings and size of the original.
