“Apple is updating its Apple TV ever so slightly… soon,” 9to5Mac reports.

“Today, the Federal Communications Commission released the dimensions of this new Apple TV product (via Engadget) in its labeling documentation,” 9to5Mac reports. “The 3,2 is 93.78mm square compared to the 98mm of the current model, but we’re not quite sure why Apple would go through the trouble of making it just a little smaller.”

9to5Mac reports, “AnandTech says the new device might also sport an A5X processor.”

Brian Klug reports for AnandTech, “From what we can glean from the FCC documents there’s no longer a two antenna solution for the BCM4330 WiFi+BT combo, but rather a single antenna solution with different gain and utilizing a BCM4334 combo instead.”

“This is the same WLAN+BT combo as used in the iPhone 5 and basically all of the newly refreshed iDevices, and is built on a 40nm RF CMOS process,” Klug reports. “Since the previous antennas were a part of the Apple TV PCB, and the FCC disclosure notes that the new Apple TV uses a single PIFA (Planar Inverted F Antenna), it’s highly likely we’re looking at a completely different PCB.”

Klug reports, “This is an interesting silent update and development for the Apple TV. Given the IPSW release onto the web before an actual hardware announcement, I originally suspected this was a silent upgrade of the Apple TV platform to newer hardware, however the presence of an A5X SoC inside makes things a bit more curious. Hopefully we will see an official announcement in the next few days.”
