FCC filing does not necessarily mean a release is coming soon, it does imply that a release is coming.

FCC Chairman since June 2009, however as of this morning we are learning that will soon be coming to an end. Chairman Genachowski has officially announced plans to step down.

FCC filing does not specifically mention the Optimus G Pro, however it does mention the LG E980. The key here though, the LG E980 is believed to be the AT&T version of the Optimus G Pro. Given we have already seen an official announcement, not to mention, spent some hands-on time with the handset -- lets get into the parts about this being a model for AT&T.
FCC filing and the GALAXY S 4 is no exception to that rule. It seems that while Samsung was busy unveiling the GALAXY S 4 in New York City, the FCC was busy putting the final touches on the filing. This particular filing is for the international version of the handset, which really just goes to say that we should be seeing another in the not to distant future.
Sony previously announced plans to release the Xperia ZL for those in the US. That bit came back in early-March. The catch is that the handset will be available unlocked and contract-free.

Enter a carrier subsidized model which looks like it will be coming by way of AT&T.

Galaxy S IV announcement, which will be happening on March 14. But while we wait for that to happen, it looks like one US carrier still has some plans with the Galaxy S III. That carrier is T-Mobile and it is looking like the LTE capable Galaxy S III is indeed going to be released soon.
Google has begun a 45-day FCC trial in an effort to become certified as a TV White Spaces Database Administrator. Basically, this means Google will be working to make more spectrum available. As part of this trial, Google has launched a Spectrum Database website that offers a look at everything from telling us what spectrum is, to talking about how it is restricted but also shared. In fact, Google's database will allow people to share spectrum.
Verizon Wireless or Samsung, it looks like the Stratosphere III has recently made an appearance with the FCC. Of course, we should point out that calling it the Stratosphere III is a bit of speculation. What we do know is that this handset is sporting a model number of SCH-I425 and a codename of Godiva. The FCC filing suggests an announcement is coming soon.
