Motorola Occam and Manta running Android 4.2 with benchmarks
We have recently informed you that we had spotted the Android Police logs featuring Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for two new Motorola devices, called the Occam and Manta.
Since then things have quickly become more ‘official’, and now the Occam (think Occam’s Razor – or RAZR) smartphone has appeared listed in the AnTuTu Benchmark database of tested devices. It has received an overall score of 9817, but shows a CPU frequency of 1512 MHz. It may be that it could be using a quad-core processor to achieve this score, as well as a CPU Integer rating of 3670, or it could still be using the current Snapdragon S4 processor that is in the Motorola DROID RAZR M, and those higher scores show how much faster Android 4.2 JB is over the current Android 4.1 JB and 4.0 ICS.
The AnTuTu Benchmark also shows results for the Manta tablet – score of 8077 and uses a 1.7 GHz processor. Motorola’s XOOM tablet had the code name of Stingray for Verizon, and Wingray for the Wi-Fi model.
All this ‘adds fuel to the fire’ that there will be a new Motorola smartphone and tablet released pretty soon. And we can be pretty sure these are to run Android 4.2 out of the box.
Yet to become known are the specs and features of the new devices and which carriers will offer them and of course under what terms.
