A recap: the DROID family - MAXX, Ultra and Mini, launching today

0. phoneArena 23 Jul 2013, 08:28 posted on

We don't see it as any kind of stretch to come out and say it outright – it's a pretty exciting time of the year, if you're a tech enthusiast. With some highly-anticipated (to put it very lightly) already out of the shadows, we now turn our attention to the next in line – the upcoming Motorola DROID trio – the Ultra, MAXX and Mini...

If the maxx comes without the moto blur I might be sold on it

So the New Mini battery is slightly smaller and yet it has the same size battery as before.....am i missing something or is this a typo?? Maxx looks good but if the specs are correct it seems like Motorola intentionally made the Ultra considerably smaller relative to the Maxx and the RAZR HD to push people to it. Personally i would get the Maxx but it all depends on the bloatware, camera quality, software tweeks and if they offer a developer version.

The DROID Mini is expected to come with a slightly smaller, 2,000mAh battery – a jump from the RAZR M's 2,000mAh one.

nice jump

Haha, i spotted that too, still not bad for mid-range, better than the One Mini. I'm just waiting on international (namely UK) availability.

I hope the 2,130 mAh battery leak isn't right. Not only is it actually smaller than the Razr HD's, but it's going to be powering a 1080p display and Snapdragon 800 processor. I would hope for at least 2,600 mAh from the Ultra.

I really don't think we will see a Snapdragon 800... More like a S4 Pro or maybe a 600... I just can't see motorola bringing top of the line specs... sorry

I was just going based on rumors. I honestly don't expect a Snapdragon 800 either, but I haven't seen anything that disproves it, so I'm being optimistic.

I agree with Kjayhawk. Unless they decide to start a new precedent here, I highly doubt these devices will feature the Snap 800. Motorola's year end devices always seem to sport the same processors as the mid-year flagships. S4 Pro or Snap 600 definitely.
