Motorola XT1058 Passes Through the FCC, Headed to AT&T

An actual Motorola device, right now known as XT1058, might hit AT&T relatively soonish, finally ending the company’s unusually long dry spell. Thanks to the accidentally reliable FCC, we’re getting a small glimpse of said device before any official announcement has been made. However, it’s still difficult to discern what the larger picture entails.

Here’s what the FCC document tell us: the device will have Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, 802/11ac Wi-Fi and support for AT&T’s LTE. AndroidCentral suggests the handset is the one we’ve seen pop up on a few different occasions; that device has been labeled as XFON. Right now, it’s difficult to know if this is a big Motorola flagship, or just something that’ll slot into the mid-tier.

We haven’t heard of any upcoming Motorola announcements, though Google does have I/O next week. Previous reports suggested Google’s event will be light on smartphone launches but, who knows, maybe this device will make an appearance with the timing lining up as it is. If it is I/O, we’ll find out what this mysterious Motorola device is all about very soon.
