New Apple TV with smaller dimensions makes an appearance via FCC filing

A new Apple TV with model number A1469 just made an appearance in an FCC filing. The only noticeable difference that can be confirmed is the size which looks to be about 5mm smaller than the current generation Apple TV. This could be the Apple TV 3,2 that appeared in the most recent update to the Apple TV.

The FCC filing doesn't show much else other than the fact that the Wi-Fi standards are the same as the current generation Apple TV. Many were speculating that the Apple TV 3,2 could simply be an international model but if the dimensions are indeed different, that may not be the case. FCC filings usually are pretty accurate when it comes to device dimensions and we aren't sure why Apple wouldn't use the same casing to just add support internationally.

Any guesses on what Apple TV 3,2 could be or whether it's different from the A1469 model in the FCC filing?
