Motorola Droid RAZR M Ultra. WOW what a mouth full. Hopefully 4.5 720P screen, quad core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2 gig ram, 16GB storage, Micro SD and a 2700-3000 mAh battery

Ultra implies a screen bigger than 4.7 inches, maybe 5 or a bigger 1080p Moto Phablet?

I can see why you would say that but the M in the name leads me to beliave that the Motorola Droid RAZR M Ultra, that just like the RAZR M and RAZR HD, will be a smaller device than Motorola Droid RAZR Ultra. If the Motorola Droid RAZR Ultra is 5" screen or bigger then the M varrient should be smaller.

Just like I, MIstB probably didn't read closely enough to see you were talking about the M. Considering it's Motorola & they tend to be a little behind the curve with processors usually, I think a Snap 600 in their mid-range device might be wishful thinking. I think the high-end Razr will use that processor & the M will be more than likely use the Snap 400 or the Pro. Also, considering that the original M had a 2,000 mAh battery, 2,700-3,000 mAh probably won't happen. I'm thinking 2,400 or 2,500. Everything else sounds about right, though.

I know. I was just wishfully thanking of what I would like in a phone. I do have to say that the RAZR M had the same processor as the RAZR HD which is where I am basing my assumptions that the RAZR M Ultra will have atleast a SD600 in it. I would aslo wonder if the RAZR M Ultra might have an SD600 and the RAZR Ultra may have a SD800 in it? Just a thought though.

Moto X seems like it's supposed to be the star of Motorola's lineup, so I highly doubt your specs are correct. I'd also think that battery capacity would maybe be around 2500 mAh, especially considering there isn't MAXX in the name. It'd be strange if they dropped the MAXX name but not RAZR.

The Moto X is the Motorola/Google phone of Moto's lineup. There will still be other phones that Google has little to no input on, as google has already said that Moto will be run as a seperate company. Also while these phones will carry a larger price tag the Moto X will follow the Nexus pricing points making the X a better phone to buy for those who do not want to extend thier contract but not pay an arm/leg for a phone.

How are you so sure the Moto X will have subsidized pricing? That doesn't make sense. It's not a part of the Nexus program -- the Moto X is made for profit. It's still using similar parts as the Nexus 4, but production/material costs don't just rocket down in a few months.

The specs that I have seen for the moto X would have made it a flagship phone back in 2012. if you need further evidence then look at the specs of the Samsung GS3. I am not saying that the X wont be worth having but as I have seen it has the same basic specs as my Motorola Droid RAZR M (with the eception of a 720P screen and 2 gigs of ram) which in this day and age is no where near being on par with flagship models from Samsung, HTC or LG that are being put out. The Moto X screems to me upper mid-range.

But I can agree with you on the battery. I was just wishfully thanking that would be nice.

I'm betting the following: Snapdragon 600 or 800 (crossing my fingers for a future-proof 800) 5" SAMOLED FHD from Samsung 2 GB RAM 32 GB storage with or without microSD 3000+ mAh battery (so no Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX Ultra for the keyboardists out there :) Available early Q4.

If those would be the specs for the RAZR Ultra that would be awsome for those who want it. I on the other hand would be more interested in the RAZR M Ultra. I still would not count out a micro SD card reader on them though.

It would certainly pique my interest! I've had problems with Samsung and HTC, so my eyes are on Moto, LG, and Nokia (in that order). Everyone previously complaining about Motorola failing on the X specs will only be able to complain about Verizon exclusivity in the US.

Motorola's slow product development gets me old waiting for them. They are behind the competition and would not think they are going to stir up the market as HTC, Nokia, Samsung, or Sony does.

Hmm, these names are starting to get a little long...

Any chance one of them is a flip phone? :-)

In this day and age of smart phones....... Smart money would be on no. But I still know plenty of people who would gladly buy a "dumb" phone over ever looking at a smart phone. It is a shame that so many companys have moved away from making quality basic phones

Little chance of one of them being a slider qwerty, either (to the disappointment of several here).

If it were me I'd have to say that theres no chance of any of them being a qwerty slider

Y Verizon keeps getting exclusive from Motorola not fair for the other carriers.

They must have signed a long-term agreement dating back to the OG Droid. A 5 year contract would have sounded pretty reasonable to Motorola, who really had nothing to lose at the time. Remember that was back in the days of the purported 5 year AT&T iPhone contract, and pre-Galaxy S.

Wow, Ultra is starting to look like the new phone naming trend. Like Pro, S, Plus, and Mini.

I actually thought they would just call it the Droid Razr X, but I guess Motorola already played that out with the Droid X line, and the Moto X is a smaller device. So what comes next year? Droid Razr Über?

Verizon is cheapening the Razr name with all the different versions. Just make up some new names for goodness sakes! Following right into the disappearing footsteps of the HTC Evo 4g LTE... Motorola Droid Razr Ultra, Razr M Ultra, next the Motorola Droid Razr Ultra Maxx?
