Latest Motorola DROID Ultra leak shows both sides of eagerly awaited handset

Latest Motorola DROID Ultra leak shows both sides of eagerly awaited handset
Following up on its tweet revealing an image of the Motorola DROID MAXX (XT-1080M), evleaks has disseminated a new picture on Monday, revealing a render of both sides of the Motorola DROID Ultra (XT-1080). The Kevlar build remains a hallmark of the recent DROID line and the Ultra is definitely going to to live up to its name specs-wise. We anticipate seeing the phone launch with a 5 inch screen featuring resolution of 1080 x 1920, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM. With the Motorola Moto X already pegged as offering a mid-range experience, this might be the highest spec'd DROID model for now.

A couple of comments about the cosmetics of the device. The Motorola DROID Ultra is thinner than the 'MAXX' version that evleaks outed the other day. This makes sense because of the thicker cell used for the extended battery. Also, the phone will be available in black, white (XT-1080W) and red (XT-1080R). We should also point out the lack of any branding on the front of the phone save for a small Motorola bat wings logo on the front corner of the phone.

While we are told not to expect the Motorola Moto X at the manufacturer's July 11th event, no one said anything about the new DROID models.

Model number XT-1080M gives hope that this device is coming with FHD 1080p display.... Lets wait and see...

Well, I don't really need all 1080 lines. I'll take the 1060p XT-1060. :)

It feels like Motorola should discontinue the Droid branding because its goodwill has been put to shame by Verizon.

Or, Verizon (which actually owns the Droid name) should cut the brand down to the 1-2 really solid Motorola devices it needs. Which is pretty much exactly what they're doing with the Ultra and Ultra M.

You could say the same of the Galaxy S3 and S4, the iPhone 4 and 5, the Lumia 800, 900, 920... It's called design language.

So why give Verizon full hd screen when the X phone only 720p hd?

Depends on the screen size of the X. If it's less than 4.7", 720 is sufficient for most people, especially at the rumored low price.

Because the Moto X isn't Motorola's flagship, the Ultra is.

i dont really see the "small Motorola bat wings logo on the front corner of the phone" anywhere in the picture!! also prefer having the lock and volume rocker buttons on different sides of any device..

One of the reasons I liked the RAZR was the angular design. I'll need to hold this new phone...

Droid is Verizon's brand, yes. Hopefully there will be an international version too, but the rest of the US is out of luck.

'While we are told not to expect the Motorola Moto X at the manufacturer's July 11th event, no one said anything about the new DROID models." Has anyone considered.... 11.11.11 was the DROID Razr. Anyone who bought the Razr at release will be due for their 20 month upgrade this week. Maybe this is just wishful thinking, but with leaks coming fast and furious, the Ultra could arrive this month.

No, I preordered my RAZR got it 11/10/11 and used my upgrade on it, Verizon won't let me upgrade until November no more early upgrades, I cannot upgrade anyway, unlimited data

Are you sure? I upgraded on 11/20/11 and am eligible for the 20 month early upgrade on 7/20. They didn't end the early upgrade deal until this year.

Yep, November for me, Upgrades are useless to me anyway, unlimited data....

if you have a line with a basic feature phone you can use your upgrades and retain your unlimited data.

Not me. I'm a good boy, I only buy when Verizon lets me upgrade. So I'm eagerly awaiting what will be my sole device for the next 2 years.

Design is not exciting, pretty sad and corny

mmm, I never realized how much I've missed smexy Moto designs. o: this may very well be a phone for me.

I like how rounded and streamlined the Ultra is. Finally moving away from the identifiably awkward octagonal Razr look. And forget about side bezels - check out the trim top.

you're right. I hadn't noticed that. that may be the Chemical X for the design of this thing.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Motorola-X-phone-to-have-a-smaller-M-version-Droid-Blast-sharing-feature-leaks_id42862 Remember this post, and how people were wondering where the on screen buttons were, well the Droid Ultra doesn't have on screen buttons apparently. Mystery solved.

I'm kind of hoping the Ultra doesn't have on-screen buttons because it's an LCD, not AMOLED.
