It was not too long ago that Beats Electronics picked up the collective nod of approval from the folks over at the FCC approval, where this particular beat is meant for a spanking new version of the Beatbox Portable. The Beatbox Portable is basically a compact and highly portable Bluetooth-enabled speaker. This new version of the Beatbox Portable would have gotten its picture in as part of the FCC filings that you can see above, and in terms of its hardware design, it more or less resembles the original. It seems that Beats Electronics is about to do away with the iPhone dock on the Beatbox Portable, and those who are more detailed would have realized that the dock locked on the top of the previous Beatbox Portable is no longer there.

Not only that, the new Beatbox Portable will also come with a USB charging port located on its rear, which is just above the device’s 3.5mm jack input. Not only that, one of Beats Electronic’s more interesting bit in the FCC filing includes approval for use of the 13MHz spectrum, which is a band that normally sees action for NFC, meaning the upcoming Beatbox Portable will soon boast of NFC-enabled pairing options. There is no word on pricing or availability just yet though.
