Gone are the days when Palm devices were heavily relied upon for productivity on the go. The smartphone market has changed considerably over the past decade and Palm has been left behind. Its brand name still exists, though, which was acquired by TCL last year. The Chinese company had said that it would start selling Palm-branded smartphones and it appears that the first device could be out later this year.

TCL is no stranger to using iconic brands that were once very popular in the mobile industry but have since faded to black. It exclusively manufacturers and sells BlackBerry-branded handsets as well ever since the Canadian company decided to get out of the hardware game.

A device bearing code name “PVG100” has been spotted at the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance for its relevant certifications. The listings don’t reveal much about the device except its model number and Wi-Fi bands. It doesn’t support 5GHz bands which suggests that it won’t be a flagship device.

The device will be running Android 8.1 Oreo when it does arrive. No further information is available at this point in time about its features and specifications. It’s unlikely that TCL will reveal more about it prior to the launch. The company hasn’t even confirmed when we can expect this device but the listings are a good indication that a launch may be around the corner.
