Motorola DROID MAXX image leaked
An intriguing picture of a new Motorola handset has been tweeted by evleaks, and according to the serial leaker, this is the Motorola DROID MAXX. There is some speculation that it is the extended battery version of the Motorola DROID Ultra (XT-1080) that popped up on Motorola's website last week, confirming a thin, Kevlar body for the handset. Even more interesting is that a look at the bottom of the phone shows the same design as seen on the back of that mystery Motorola device pictured the other day with the Ferrari logo.

There have been some nay-sayers who have called that picture photoshopped, pointing out that the Ferrari insignia had an incorrect color scheme. Instead, it could very well be a real photograph showing us the back of the phone that evleaks just outed. Our source has said that besides the Motorola Moto X, the wholly owned Google subsidiary has three more models on the way. Two are believed to be the Motorola DROID Ultra and the Motorola DROID Ultra M (XT-1030).

It is possible that we could be close to an official announcement from Motorola. A recent full page ad that the company took out in some of the nation's most widely circulated papers for the Moto X showed the image of two people that formed the roman numeral "X I" or 11. Some took that to mean that July 11th will be the unveiling date for the Moto X and possibly other Motorola phones as well. We also wonder if the "X" formed in the picture was for the Moto X and the "I" indicated that it is the first generation model in the series. Or perhaps the "X" was representing the X used as the logo for Nexus models and the "I" meant that it will be Motorola's first such phone.

UPDATE: It looks like the mystery Motorola device spotted the other day was the Motorola Primus, released in January and exclusive to Peru. The model number is XT-621. The device carries a 4 inch screen, is powered by a single core 1.2GHz processor and is equipped with a 5MP camera on back. It also runs Android 2.3. So there is one mystery solved. It still doesn't take away from the image of the Motorola DROID MAXX, which tells us that Motorola is planning on offering extended battery versions of its new phones.

Why would anyone do that? That's the point of Kevlar... No case needed much less a cheap one.

Yeah I would've thought any new Moto would go with on screen buttons like stock. Unless this is some sort of phablet device.

once you say 1080p,its understood that it has 400+ ppi on normal sized screens
so no need to say it seperately to downgrade motorola

First, the XT-1080 was not on Verizon's website. If you follow the link, you go to Motorola's website.

Second, this is apparently not the same phone as the "Ferrari Motorola". The phone has been outed as a Motorola Primus with the logo added. Here's the link to that story:

http://www.droid-life.com/2013/07/05/stop-the-hypebeasting-ferrari-motorola-phone-is-nothing-more-than-the-primus/

I don't get where you make the connection that these two are the same phone. Almost every phone Motorola has released in the last 2 years had a Kevlar back. So what besides the fact that two stories came out the same week leads you to believe that these are the same phone?

Motorola is now Google.. This makes Moto X an awesome contender in the world of android. I've always been a fan of Razr designs. Can't wait for this sweet piece of kevlar engineering to be unveiled.

Com on enough of this Verizon exclusive. What bout the rest of us who don't have Verizon

To be blunt: either switch to Verizon or don't bother with Motorola. I see you post this comment on nearly every Droid article, and I will again reiterate: Motorola made a deal with Verizon in 2009, and they will continue selling exclusively through Verizon until said contract is finished.

So what about all of the phones that everyone BUT Verizon gets. Let's look at a few, the Nexus 1, HTC One X, S, or V, HTC Sensation series, Samsung Nexus S, Galaxy S2, Note1, LG Optimus & Nexus4, any Sony Xperia phone. For all of the phones that Verizon doesn't get, you're ticked that you're not able to get a few Moto phones without switching to Verizon? Cry me a river. The reason I'm with Verizon is because up until earlier this year it was the only game in town. Now we have AT&T, but those are the only two. There is StraightTalk, but that runs off Verizon's network here and has crap for phone selection. Usually if Verizon gets a phone that everyone else has, it's 6 months later, only has a passing resemblance to comparable phones on other carriers, and is either loaded with bloat or missing features available on other carriers (Wallet, HTC's ringtones, wallpapers, & apps).

I figure that it would be a good Idea to come into Trolls territory and call him out.. As some if you Android fans may already know Troll has serious issues with the Windows Phone platform, and hardware.. He has blatantly let it be know that he hates WP, and thinks that anyone who uses it is uninformed, stupid, and crazy.. He intentionally makes his way into WP related topics just to bash WP, and insult its users.. This is a multi platform community, and he refuses to be a part of it, which makes me question why he is even here.. He never has any helpful information to contribute to any discussions on any topic ever. Instead he chooses to pathetically display his personal emotional issues here where this is not the correct time or place.. I'm just letting you Android fans know what kind of idiot you have going around bashing other platforms, and giving Android users a bad name.. I'm a Windowsphone fan, and from time to time I've had disagreements with users from other platforms, but for the most part its just fun and games.. Troll is just plain disrespectful, and immature. If you don't believe me just go to any recent WP related article and look for him in the comments.. He's sure to be there EVERYTIME bashing, and disrespecting everyone.. I just don't understand why he wants to change users viewpoint on the platform they like. If Troll doesn't like WP, and thinks the users are stupid, then what does it make him to continuously try and convince WP users to switch to Android.. I'm sure WP users here are aware of what Android has to offer, but obviously aren't interested, and aren't interested for good reasons of their own.. Has anyone else witnessed such a lack of disrespect from other community member?.. Have you been annoyed, or offended, by Troll?

The problem with WP from day one was an average user couldn't figure it out.. It was to much to deal... As much as it got greater and simpler it continues to fight. It won't surpass Icrap let alone Android that's great if they are in the market to survive and slowly grow. NOKIA is the only one really keep them alive because of the brand and Nokia needs them just as bad Although they have great phones regardless what Troll think but again an average user will choose Android or Icrap before WP look at BB I give them 2-5 they will either sell or crash they have a hard time fighting and there phones are a lot more popular than WP but no one is buying them very few loyal customers WP will always be there but your like a ring in desert no one can find you or see you good luck may be u should team up with BB hey it worked for AT&T and Cingular

You're calling out one person for the stuff he's done? There are literally tons of people who do the same from every OS, except for BlackBerry. There are countless comments calling people stupid or fanboys for using Apple & Android, along with Windows Phone. If you're going to go into someone's "territory" and call them out, you best do it for everyone, otherwise you're saying it's okay for others to do it, but not him.

Personally I think use what works for you. You know yourself better than anyone else. The only time I get irritated is when people talk down to others (like say calling everyone kid for instance), or when these companies take measures that will ultimately limit my and other consumers choices. If everyone (companies included) worried about their own business and not everyone else's, they'd be more productive.

Hey, so in order to get any of these phones, other than the X PHONE, you'll have to sell your ass to VERIZON...who will immediately turn around and sell your info to the NSA! No thanks, I'll wait for the X PHONE and take it to a T-MOBILE MVNO....
