Codenames are weird. Motorola’s codenames are weirder than most we’ve seen before. The company is apparently working on three new devices that will launch in the United States. The first two are codenamed the Yeti and the Sasquatch, and Droid-Life said it has learned those phones will launch on AT&T. A third device, the “Ghost” will reportedly launch on all four major U.S. wireless carriers.
The Sasquatch will apparently run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean but Droid-Life has no idea what sort of specs it offers. Based on the Jelly Bean operating system, however, we’re pretty confident this isn’t the highly-rumored Motorola X/Motorola NXT we’ve heard will run Key Lime Pie. Likewise, there aren’t any known specs for the Yeti but that it will also run Android 4.2.
The Ghost, meanwhile, is apparently the Motorola XT912A that leaked last week. It’s also not the Motorola X, Droid-Life said, noting that it will have “somewhat older” hardware, which suggests it’s going to be an entry-level or mid-range smartphone. Still, benchmarks have suggested high-end hardware, including a 1.7GHz quad-core processor and a 720p display.
This is a rumor for now, especially since we have very little to go off of other than specs. We’ll keep you in the loop if anything changes.
