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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
