HTC 8X and Nokia RM-878 pass through FCC

HTC 8XNokia RM-878

The FCC is a productive source of news today.

First the HTC 8X PM23300 variant has passed through FCC with North American LTE support. (via Engadget) The device support both AT&T and Canada’s LTE bands, but not T-Mobile or Verizon’s.

More interesting is the Nokia RM-878 which is a GSM device which  has just passed through the FCC with NFC and AWS but no LTE support. The outline of the device, as seen in the FCC label documentation, does not fit either the Nokia Lumia 820 or 920, but other clues still suggest a slightly different looking Nokia Lumia 820.

The device will also be compatible with a wireless charger, which appears to be via a removable cover, and Nokia is only asking for confidentiality until November 12th however, suggesting that the handset will not be a secret device coming next year.

Ultimately, based on the 3G (1700,2100) frequencies used, and the lack of LTE or CDMA support, the device is likely to be T-Mobile USA’s Nokia Lumia 820. The device has not been announced yet for the network, but based on these findings it should not be long.

Thanks A2J for the tip.
