Google’s big September 29th media event is almost upon us. and thanks to the FCC, we’re learning a little more about a probable new Nexus phone, the Nexus 5X.

According to Android Police, the FCC recently published documents pertaining to the LG-H790 and LG-H791, which onlookers believe are two variants of the new manufactured Nexus 5X. Based on the cellular radios in each model, Android Police concludes that the H790 is the “the carrier-agnostic version for the United States,” while the H791 is the international version of the phone.

Android Police goes on to note that the US version of the 5X is expected to work on AT&T, Sprint, Version, and T-Mobile.

While the FCC database doesn’t provide much else in the way of specifics regarding the new devices, it does give us an idea of how large the 5X will be. According to DroidLife, the FCC docs peg the phone’s dimensions at 146.9mm by 72.5mm, or about 5.8 by 2.9 inches. The FCC doesn’t specify how thick the phone will be, but it does say that the screen measures 133mm diagonally—about 5.2 inches. According to Android Police, the dimensions provided by the FCC are pretty much in line with specs leaked by Amazon India earlier this week.

Android Police previously published leaked press images of the Nexus 5X, which show white, black, and light blue variations of the device. In addition to the 5X, rumors point to a new, Huawei-build Nexus phone called the Nexus 6P that will come in gold, white, black, and aluminum finishes.

So far, we’ve had to rely on rumors, leaks, and innuendo for what to expect out of Google, but we won’t have to wait much longer—we’ll see you on Tuesday.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
