All three might arrive as X Phones, part of the new Google-Motorola lineup
Mobile phone maker Motorola Mobility has been recently rumored to plan more than one device in the X Phone project, and it seems that at least two handsets in the series will arrive on shelves at AT&T.Newly spotted device codenames hint at two new smartphones for this United States-based wireless carrier, while also unveiling a third smartphone, supposedly set to hit shelves at all other carriers in the country.
According to a recent post on Droid-life, these phones are known internally as Ghost, Sasquatch and Yeti, with the last two of them expected to arrive on shelves at AT&T at some point in the future.
Ghost is said to be the previously leaked XT912A, which was said several days ago to be an X Phone prototype, and which should head to the market at an affordable price tag.
The smartphone is said to feature a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro (MSM8960) processor inside, a 720p HD display, on-screen navigation buttons, and the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform loaded on top.
Rumor has it that the device might arrive on the market through Google’s Play Store, the same as Nexus devices are sold at the moment, yet it remains to be seen if this will pan out or not.
In the meantime, you might want to know that both Sasquatch and Yeti will arrive on shelves at AT&T with the Android 4.2.2 platform loaded on top, although no other details on them have been provided as of now.
Interestingly enough though, it appears that Motorola is currently testing Ghost on AT&T’s network as well (this GLBenchmark page confirms this), so it might make it available through this carrier as well.
All three smartphones are expected to arrive on the market with Google branding on them, being the first devices that will be developed under the supervision of the Internet giant, which bought Motorola in early 2012.
However, we might still have a few good months to wait before these smartphones are made official, so keep an eye on this space for further details on them.
