Unknown Motorola Obake for Verizon discovered in AnTuTu; device could be the XT1055

Unknown Motorola Obake for Verizon discovered in AnTuTu; device could be the XT1055
An unknown Motorola handset codenamed obake_verizon has appeared on the AnTuTu benchmark site with a score and specs similar to another unknown Motorola phone seen on the site last week. Back then, we told you about the Motorola XT1055, which also appeared on the AnTuTu site. Both models had similar scores with the obake_verizon model tallying 18,218 and the Motorola XT1055 ringing up a score of 18,252. And both units have a quad-core 1.7GHz processor and are powered by Android 4.2.2.

While not giving us the 100% definitive answer, it sure would seem like the Motorola XT1055 and the obake_verizon model are both one and the same. It should be pointed out that the so-called Google X scored a lower 15,479 and sported Android 5.0.1. Benchmark scores can be faked, so we have to take all of this in with a healthy dollop of skepticism.

What makes this all so important is that the Motorola X is going to be the first phone produced by Motorola with input from Google. Expectations are high. But even if the obake_Verizon model is the same phone as the Motorola XT1055, there is no evidence that this is the phone codenamed Ghost.

"Obake" is a word used in Japanese folklore, commonly translated as "ghost". I think that's enough evidence to make a connection...at least, enough to increase speculation that this may indeed be that phone. You never know...but it will definitely catch more eyes as time goes by. Motorola may very well have the next big thing on their hands...

I'm definitely more interested in the new 5.0 (if real) software and futuristic innovations this phone brings out over the specs, benchmarks mean little in real world performance anyway.

The same reason why At&t receives phones like the new LG Optimus G Pro. I wish verizon would get it too! :/

Well since AT&T and Verizon are pretty much confirmed to get it, I'm sure T-Mobile and Sprint are to follow. We'll see at I/O if Motorola makes an announcement.

Even if they made carrier-specific versions, they should at least be equally capable, like the NA Galaxy SII.

I'm just hoping that the next vzw Moto phone has the snapdragon 800, a 5" 1080p display, a Maxx like battery and the overall size of the G-Nexus...
