FCC documents for the Pixel 3 and 3 XL become public, confirm Band 12/71 support and wireless charging

In case you somehow needed more evidence that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL are happening (and that there is not a mythical 'backup' 3 XL with no notch), both devices have now been certified by the FCC. The online documents don't reveal much that hasn't already been spoiled, but there are a few interesting details that appear to be new.

This week, a group of 23 attorneys general from across the U.S., led by New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood, published a new brief reaffirming its dedication to the cause.

FCC docs confirm BlackBerry KEY2 LE name for rumored sibling phone

The BlackBerry KEY2, much like its predecessor, is an odd phone. It doesn't look like most other Android devices out there, with its hardware keyboard and square-ish 3:2 screen. We had a lot of little issues with the phone when reviewing it, but if this unusual form factor really speaks to you, it's easy to overlook a lot of those foibles. What was trickier to live with was the $650 price tag. Thankfully, it's looking like we're about to get a more affordable alternative, as some newly published FCC docs reveal the BlackBerry KEY2 LE.

Report: US to block China Mobile's application to enter US market

The US government has been growing increasingly critical (perhaps even paranoid) when it comes to the operation of Chinese companies in the US. Between the on-again-off-again ZTE snafu and Huawei's allegedly government-influenced issues with its US carrier deals, Chinese tech companies are running into progressively more problems doing business in the United States. This is just the start, though, as according to a recent report by Bloomberg, the FCC is set to deny China Mobile's application to provide telecommunications services in the US.

Ever since its introduction, the S Pen has been the defining feature of the Galaxy Note series. Some users are so devoted to that stylus they won't even consider buying another phone. The S Pen hasn't changed much over the years, other than no longer getting stuck in the phone. Samsung seems to have something big planned for the Note 9, though. A new FCC report lists the S Pen as a Bluetooth device.

A much more powerful Samsung fast wireless charger just passed through the FCC

Wireless charging had always been dog-slow - that is, until Samsung introduced fast wireless charging alongside the Galaxy Note5 and Galaxy S6 edge+. The same tech is still being used in Samsung flagships nearly three years later, but it's still noticeably slower than wired fast charging. That might be about to change, though; a new Samsung fast wireless charger has just passed through the FCC, and it's a lot more powerful than the current ones.
