Motorola Photon Q makes a stop at the FCC


Another device has made a glorious stop at the FCC, and this time it appears to have been the Motorola Photon Q. Judging by the listing, it looks like this one’s bound for Sprint as it has LTE bands compatible with their network set to go live July 15th.

The device appears to have NFC radios as well. That alone could mean this will be a high-end device to look forward to, but it’s hard to get excited when we don’t know much about the device.

We know it’ll have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and there’s a possibility it’ll come with an S4 processor. Its rumored qHD resolution could also hint to a screen size between 4 and 4.3 inches.

In any case, it looks like we might have a Motorola phone to look forward  to after what feels like a long drought without much this year. Head to the FCC if you want to take a look for yourself.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    Assimilation has begun!

  4. Motorola used to use the Q after there model numbers yeas ago.

  5. qHD and S4… rage, lets get the HD quad cores going y’all.

  6. I’ll put money on that being at least a 4.3″ display. Looking at my Droid 4, the screen is 90% of the keyboard width (the screen covers the width of the 1-9 number keys, but no the 0). This of course assumes the key pitch remains the same as the Droid4, but it’s likely given that the keyboard has an identical layout/aesthetic to the Droid4 item. Due to the screen rendered permanent Android buttons, it will likely have roughly equivalent usable area to the Droid4.

    Really hope they make this a 720p display rather than qHD.
