Filings of a new Palm smartphone with model number PVG100 have made it to the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications. The specifications of the Palm PVG100 are still unclear but from the Wi-Fi Alliance's certification, it can be seen that the phone supports only the 2.4 GHz band implying either a budget or mid-range device.

A few months back, there were whispers that TCL, the company now home to iconic brands such as BlackBerry and Palm, would be introducing a new Palm phone this year. We haven't heard much about the fabled Palm device after that given TCL's increasing focus on releasing new BlackBerry devices. Now, we are seeing that a Palm device is indeed in the works and has, in fact, passed through FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance certifications. 

The model number of the Palm device is listed as PVG100 but nothing much is revealed about the device itself. OEMs generally request these agencies to obfuscate specifications and pictures of their devices and this time it is no different. However, from the Wi-Fi Alliance's certification, we do get to know that the Palm PVG100 will run on Android 8.1 Oreo, dashing any hopes of a webOS revival. The phone is listed to support only the 2.4 GHz band, which means no high-speed 5 GHz band support. It could be that TCL is targeting this phone to a budget/mid-range audience just for nostalgia's sake so ticking all boxes spec-wise is not a high priority at this stage.

The appearance of the device in certifications does signal an impending launch. We just hope that it is not too far away, though.
