FCC Phone Approvals

Hello all,

For a while now I've been interested in what new devices will come landing in the US and one way to try and determine that is to see what pops up at the good ol' FCC. Every electronic device needs to file approval with the FCC before it can be released in the US. Now, not every device that gets approval is always released by the manufacturer, but this gives us a good feel for when a device might be released as it's not usually too long after it shows up that you can buy it. It can be tricky to determine what the device is, as only code names typically show up here. But what is also included is the 4G LTE bands on the device, which is great info for us. You can guess which carrier or MVNO is behind the device, to help guess where it's landing. All updates are provided via Phone Scoop. I will try to keep this blog entry updated with new info as it becomes available.  Comments are always welcome of course!

  • Great Post!  I was a bit concerned about band coverage in North America. I have found the following that may indicate more coverage and matches the FCC applications at https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=oqEHOTatyFqDMO%2BcOZ%2BELA%3D%3D&fcc_id=SRQ-ZTEA2017U

    The flagship Axon phone for 2016 sports top-end specs in a stylish unibody metal design. Key features include a 5.5-inch, Quad-HD, OLED display, 20-megapixel camera with OIS, Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB of RAM, NFC, fingerprint sensor, extensive support for U.S. LTE networks, memory card slot, and USB Type-C connector with fast charging.

    Great find, ​!

  • All this stuff looks great. Just wish I knew what you are talking about. Sorry clueless nontechy. Yeah i can learn as long as you're not talking over my head. I think that's why many get frustrated because we have no chance in acquiring knowledge or being close to competitive if this is a group to recognize zte and what we as the public can use and find interesting enough to share then I don't get all the technical talk. Many,many times you all are way over my head. I just like the stuff this company makes. But I'm not techy and I can't stay on hear limitlessly perusing all of the above the board jargon. Not saying I'm gone.am SAYIN ur losing me. Hope I'm the only one. If so no loss. Please take no offense. Just confused where ur goin here. Maybe I should have joined the knitting blog. Possibly more my level of comprehension.

  • hollaphollap United States Posts: 8,369 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    ​, many of the things that are on this site are also new to me. But as a Techy, I like to research the things I don't understand so that I can learn from them.  In my post above, I will try to explain it more in regular terms vs. Techy talk. In order for for electronic devices to be sold in the US, the Federal Communications Commission has to approve the signals the devices give off to the airwaves. When new mobile devices get approved by the FCC, we have an idea what the device is and when it will be available in the US.  The first column above lists the Manufacturer and codename for the device. Sometimes they list the actual name, like the AXON 7 and the Moto G4 Plus. Sometimes they just leave a codename which you can search and find make and model on forums typically.  The second column is when the device passed the FCC.  Third column is the 4G LTE bands the phone has enabled so we can determine which carrier it will work on. For example, Verizon usually uses bands 2,4, and 13 for its 4G speed networks. If 2,4, and 13 aren't listed for a device chances are 4g will not work on that device for Verizon. The Samsung SM-S120 listed above is definitely a device made for the Verizon Network. The more bands that are listed, the more 4G networks the device will work on. The last column are the radios that are listed to be in the device.

    I hope this helps with the post.  I know the information on this community can be overwhelming, but continue to look for the threads that can help you!

  • Thank you for doing that. I appreciate your going out of you way to help me understand. I love to learn but when people speak at me in a foreign language I have no clue as to is he asking for a drink or does he want to know where the restroom is. Your clarification was completely understood. Again thanks!

  • hollaphollap United States Posts: 8,369 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    No problem ​! I'm around techy people all day so it's easy for me to continue that way all the time.  My wife hates all the acronyms I know! Glad I could help!

  • Thirty one years happy wife, happy life.

    Don't torment yourself. Speak her language.

    I can remember saying to co-workers in my first year of programming ('81), "I'd like to get the guy that started all these acronyms and punch him right in the mouth."

  • mobilegeezermobilegeezer Chattanooga, Tennessee AreaPosts: 1,204 ✭✭✭✭✭✭

    29 years. But, with a Jersey girl, just let here talk (try and stop her) and do what she says. My wife freely admits the talking part.

  • fzrrichfzrrich United States Posts: 4,124 mod

    Sometimes we all need things "dummied down" like a tech book for dummies. I hate being a dummy lol I am not a super intellectual full of tech specs etc., but it does interest the hell out of me and I love to read and learn all about. Whenever I try to explain something techy to someone I try to do it like ​ as well. Great job!!  and thank you for helping us all understand something a little bit better.
