Three new Motorola phones surface online- the Yeti, Sasquatch and...

Its been sometime since we’ve heard anything from Motorola about any new products. Yes, there’s the mythic ‘X-Phone’ that’s touted to be the first offspring of the Google-Motorola partnership, but even that phone just exists as nothing more than speculation and rumours right now. However, this week, details of three new Motorola devices have made their way to the surface thanks to some benchmark figures spotted by Droid Life. These devices carry the codenames ‘Ghost’, ‘Yeti’ and ‘Sasquatch’ and could just be a fresh lineup of Android phones from the company that was once the harbinger of the Android monolith.

The ‘Ghost’ (which bears the model number XT912A) is the only phone from the above three that has actually been seen in the flesh. Last week, a photo of the device was posted online along with its rumored specs that include a 4-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, an Adreno 320 GPU and Android 4.2.1. These specs show that the ‘Ghost’ may not be a high-end device but rather one that can compete with the likes of the Sony Xperia SP or the Samsung Galaxy S III and should be priced around the Rs. 25,000 mark.

Unfortunately, there’s very little information about the other two Motorola phones apart from their codenames. Benchmark data shows that the ‘Yeti’ may be seeing a U.S. launch through AT&T and will probably run Android 4.2. The ‘Sasquatch’ has also been linked with AT&T and will most probably be released with Android 4.2.2.

We hope these devices mark the beginning of a total resurrection of Motorola culminating in the launch of the X-Phone.
