Multiple Motorola Android Codenames Uncovered
Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 launch sort of wrapped-up the early-year Android announcements, leaving all the major players with new hardware with the exception of Motorola. Where are Moto’s new models? The X phone rumors continue on, though it could still be months before we’re able to work out the truth in those, and in the meantime we’ve seen some leaks of other devices, like that XT912A from last week (above). Now we’ve got a few additions to bring to the mystery of Motorola’s upcoming lineup, with the discovery of several codenames.
That XT912A shows up again in a GLBenchmark result, revealing the codename Ghost. We don’t get much else here, but the specs do match up with what we already heard. There is one new tidbit, though, revealing that the Ghost appears to be getting ready for AT&T. Beyond AT&T, rumors suggest that this one could also make it to other carriers.
Beyond that, there’s a decidedly Bigfoot theme to these other Motorola codenames, with evidence emerging for both the Yeti and the Sasquatch.
Sasquatch makes its presence known on 0xbench, where it too appears to be preparing for an AT&T launch. It reports that it’s running Android 4.2.2, but we’re at a loss for any detailed specs. The case isn’t too much different with the Yeti; again, it looks like AT&T is in its future, and it will run Jelly Bean, but beyond the code name, details on the phone are still unknown.
While that doesn’t paint a very complete picture of what to expect from Motorola in the near future, at least it looks like there are a number of different models in the works, and hopefully we’ll be learning more about all of them soon.
