Motorola’s next-gen Moto X for AT&T appears in FCC filing ahead of launch?

Droid-Life points us to a new FCC filing for a mysterious Motorola device that is likely the rumoured Moto X+1 headed for AT&T.

The report notes that the device supports AT&T connectivity and also shares some details on size that would line up with leaks of a 5.2-inch display expected for the next-gen Moto X: The FCC measurements indicate that this Motorola phone is 140×72.6mm – the Galaxy S5 is 142×72.5mm. The new Moto X is expected to sport a 5.2-inch display, with much less bezel than the GS5, which would certainly put them around the same size, even with a slightly larger display on the new Moto.

We’ve seen several leaks of the next-gen Moto X that many are referring to as the Moto X+1. That latest leak came earlier this month when press renders from Verizon appeared online giving us a clear look at the yet to be announced device.

We know the Droid Bionic has a big battery, unfortunately, the images that had previously surfaced didn’t give us a good view of the device’s profile, which we now know appears to be rather thick (to put it nicely). These new images from GottaBeMobile give us a whole new perspective.

Yesterday FCC filings for the Motorola Droid Bionic started popping up and confirmed it would be a 4G LTE capable device sporting a 4.3 inch qHD display, 1GHz dual core TI Omap processor, a front-facing VGA camera, and an 8 megapixel rear camera with 1080p HD video recording. Judging by the image below, it should have good battery life too. expand full story

While most apps size up well on most of Android’s tablets and larger smartphones, the Android team has announced a new feature that will allow users to size apps that won’t quite fit their screen. Any Android app on the Market that doesn’t target a larger screen through code will get this new feature.

To enable this functionality, developers need to add one line of code:  android:xlargeScreens=”true”.

If a larger screen target can’t be found, Android will enable the feature in the bottom right of the device. Users can either select “stretch to fill screen” or “zoom to fill screen”. Since larger 1080P Google TVs run Android, this is a great feature to have. Also, does this  help or hurt Android fragmentation? expand full story
