LG Nexus 4 Benchmark Shows Codenames of Mako and Occam, Hates All Over the Motorola Rumor

A purported benchmark for the LG Nexus 4 appeared at GLBenchmark this week, showing us some of the dirty details that we were still hoping to get clarification on before the product is unveiled next Monday.

First off, you’ll notice that we have a device name of “mako” which has been known as the codename for some time now. Second, you’ll notice the word “occam” in the build fingerprint and product, another name that has been tossed around. In fact, a couple of weeks ago, the tin foil hats came out, and a group of Android enthusiasts jumped to the wild conclusion that there was a better-than-average chance that this was going to be a separate Nexus, probably built by Motorola. You see, because if you Google the term “occam,” you’ll find “Occam’s Razor.” Apparently, that should mean that occam equals RAZR, which equals Motorola phone. Wild, I know. This benchmark, if legit, debunks the hell out of that.  (more…)

“Occam” and “Manta” Appear in AnTuTu Benchmarks, Quad-core Snapdragon S4 in the “Occam”?

On Friday, we were introduced to two new devices that could turn into the next Nexus phone and tablet, the “occam” and “manta” respectively. We have no idea who is making these devices, even if some are jumping to the wild conclusion that they are made by Motorola. While we would love to see a Motorola Nexus, a codename is just not enough to go on to assume that this is made by them. For all we know, the “occam” is the oft-rumored LG Nexus phone and the “manta” is the Nexus 10 made by Samsung.  (more…)

Tin Foil Hat Time: Server Logs Hint at Motorola Nexus Tablet and Phone?

Oh boy, Nexus fever has gotten so out of control these days, that we’re spending nights in our parents’ basements digging through server logs to find clues. Brace yourselves, because if the wild conclusion jumping that you are about to experience is correct, we could have two Motorola Nexus devices on our hands. Try to follow along with the madness after the break. Hypebeast in full effect.  (more…)
