Ok, some light to shed on why there were two phones mentioned in the test report:
It seems as though they are making the phone with two different LCD panels. The first thing that came to mind is that they will have an option for OLED vs. lower priced LCD but I don't think that is the intention. I believe there will be only one phone with one price but that they are using two different OLED suppliers due to shortages. They have to test the phone with both panels to measure the emissions. Strange that they list two cameras as well though. Who knows.
p.s. If T-mobile is getting this phone, which the frequencies support, it will be pretty crazy. They will have the two 4.3" smartphones on the market, the HD2 running WinMo and Supersonic running Android
Those "ROAMING" and "NO SERVICE" messages ought to look great on those high resolution displays.
Looks like HTC is pop'n them out this quarter. My question though, how is this information located manually? When I go to the FCC website and do a search for the model numbers (N1, new N1 and whatever else just came up, I get nothing)
Hold up, couldn't this just be the HD2 for T-mobile (U.S.)?
Go to https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfm
enter NM8 under Grantee code (thats HTC's code) and "show 500 searches" and "start search". It will list all HTC devices in the USA. Then click "grant date" to sort by date. At the top will be the lastest device
Isnt the Supersonic a Wimax device which would mean Sprint? The HD2 is great, if you dont have to use any of the unmodded Winmo parts of it.
Thank you very much.
Here fcc label for nexusone(pb99100), pb99110(1/29/2010), and the pb81120(2/4/2010
looks like the PB81120 has no marking for sd card or sim. The label is smaller 51mm v 57mm
Well, It's not a Verizon phone :-(
HTC PB81120 flies through the FCC with support for the AWS band (Phone Arena News)
Read post 47 through 50. We knew that yesterday am. The phone arena news was posted today. The phone could be a hd2 with windows or maybe the bravo with android
Here we go again: NM8PB31200
And this one has CDMA and EV-DO support so, Hello Big Red!
Any clue on which phone this is?
The usual suspects: Incredible / Legend / N1 / Bravo. The first two being more likely.
Great find wonderbread! Thanks
1300 battery = Eris sized...probably not Incredible/Bravo/N1. Legend?
Yeah, actually reports are pegging the Legend battery at 1300mAh, so this could be the Legend. On the other hand, N1 battery is only 1400mAh so 1300 doesn't necessarily rule out a beefier phone like the Incredible.
As I was just reminded in another forum, the specs for Legend that we've seen so far aren't for VZW...so....what the heck is this thing then? Maybe a CDMA Legend-like phone we haven't seen?
Anyone have a link to the Sprint Hero FCC filing? I am wondering if Sprint uses CDMA and EV-DO. If so, it would make sense that Sprint gets the new Hero since they were among the first to get the original Hero.
Evidence to the contrary of that theory is that Sprint ONLY uses the 1900 band where as VZW uses 1900 AND 800-900. PB31200 supports 1900 and 850 so I'd say this is evidence for it being a VZW phone.
Edit: Sprint hero FCC filing tests the 850 band also so they can't be distinguished by which one tests that band.
look how big the label is Nexus one at 54.35 length and this new one at 64.8
I don't think FCC label size really means very much.
But I guess it's fun to speculate the angle from the grassy knoll.
Found the sprint hero fcc filing: https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/ViewExhibitReport.cfm?mode=Exhibits&RequestTimeout=500&calledFromFrame=N&application_id=744248&fcc_id=%27NM8HERO200%27
Mentions CDMA2000 and EVDO only. don't see 850 and 1900 bands.
Confirmation of verizon?
Nice work.....so.....something is definitely coming to Verizon in the not too distant future w/a smallish battery.
It's longer but not wider. The N1 is 47 across while the new on is 39 which actually amounts to about the same surface area for each.
Well, maybe not the actual size but these labels almost always go under the battery so if you can match the shape of the label to the back of a new phone you might be able to deduce which phone the filing is for. The Incredible certainly has a unique back to it. Also worthy to note, that if the pictures we see of the final product do NOT have the FCC label on them, then it is under the battery which means the battery is removable.
Good find. The "Report DTS" (page 6) does test the 850 and 1900 bands so we can't confirm VZW. Also, if you look at the operating frequency listed in that Sprint Hero filing and the operating frequency listed in the PB31200 filing, they are the same: 842.7MHz - 848.3MHz. The Eris on the other hand had multiple operating frequencies. Not sure if that is enough to confirm Sprint. I'm sure there's something conclusive in that test report that reveals the carrier but it might take a carrier tech to recognize it.
The Eris tests were done with CDMA2000. I am leaning towards it going to Sprint. I looked closer and 2 different labs did the testing. Maybe this is the difference. Hopefully going to Verizon
So far the only phone rumored for Sprint is the Supersonic right? I hope there's still a chance that this could be for Verizon, but knowing my luck and the luck of everyone on this forum who has been waiting, don't want to get my hopes up just to be crushed again.
