New Motorola devices surface under “Yeti,” “Sasquatch,” and “Ghost” codenames

Call Matt Moneymaker, Bobo, and the rest of the Finding Bigfoot crew, there’s been another Sasquatch sighting. This time, however, it’s not the elusive creature of legend. No, it’s a new Motorola handset, one potentially falling under the X Phone brand. Also popping up are devices codenamed “Yeti” and “Ghost.”

The codenames all show up via various benchmarks, and in all cases are tied to AT&T. The Yeti and Sasquatch are the two with the least amount of details to go along with their names. Both devices will run at least Android 4.2, the Sasquatch registering Android 4.2.2. In terms of hardware, there is little to go off of.

The Ghost, however, seems to be the Motorola XT912A, a recently leaked smartphone that speculation says gives us our first look at Google’s influence on the handset maker. The Ghost/XT912A isn’t expected to be the actual flagship X Phone model. Its specs are more akin to last year’s top tier of devices, but it should provide a good mix of power and affordability.

While the devices are all tied to AT&T’s network, this is likely just for testing purposes. Most rumors point to Motorola’s next generation of phones being targeted at all four major US carriers. And unlike the real thing, this Sasquatch has a much better chance of getting caught on camera soon enough, blurry or not.

      nah too much hype, google is not really the greatest device launcher, they can make software but when it comes to physical product launches its been pretty bad with Nexus 4 and lets not forget the accessories.

      • Manbo

        That’s why they’ll use Motorola’s distribution partners to get the product out.
        Buuuuuuut… I also think there’s too much hype about nothing right now.

      To do that they’ll need to stop treating customers outside the US with utter contempt.

        They do that to customers within the US as well.

    Maybe ghost has clear casings and frames so you can see the insides.

    Funny code name choices… does this mean they are mythical? Possibly don’t exist?
    Just make a solid device with a big battery and quality screen with lots of storage.
    Stock Android with unlocked bootloader also, please.

    I’ve always wondered, if a device is running 4.2 will it have the December bub? My birthday is in December and I want my contacts to know this. =.P

    Or is it a bug with the stock contacts app and anything running non-stock Android won’t have this issue? And if the Motorola X phone is stock Android, doesn’t that mean it will have the December bug?

    • Matt W.

      they fixed december bug

      • No_Nickname90

        Yea, they fixed the December bug with 4.2.1. So if a phone has 4.2, won’t it have the December bug? That’s what I’m asking.
