New HTC phones pass through FCC on way to Verizon


Some new devices from HTC showed up in the FCC database apparently heading to Verizon. According to the filings, both devices are listed as smartphones and they appear to have support for Verizon’s CDMA and LTE bands. The lack of support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi may point to them being budget-oriented devices.

Besides the lack of 802.11ac support, the FCC filing also reveals that one of the devices has two possible configurations for both the LCD screen and the battery, which caused additional testing. HTC also plans to put the FCC label on the battery along with markings for inserting the SIM card implying at least one of the devices will have a removable back cover and likely a removable battery.

No information regarding the operating system was included, so it is not clear whether these will be Android-powered smartphones. They could be destined to become part of Verizon’s Windows phone portfolio.
