Motorola prepping new DROID with larger screen for Q4 delivery
posted by Alan F. / Mar 27, 2014, 8:55 AM
There are a couple of ways that this can be accomplished. One way, obviously, is to increase the size of the screen. Another way would be for Motorola to reduce the size of the bezels on the phone. Most manufacturers are doing both with their high-end models. With the larger screen ratio rumored for the device, we wonder if this will end up being the recently rumored 6.3 inch phablet that Motorola is supposedly working on.
While the tipster didn't have any other information to pass along, we would assume that Verizon customers will remain the beneficiaries of Motorola's hard work. The name of the device is up in the air, but we think that a Motorola DROID Quantum would sound just fine.
Thanks for the tip, Vlad!

This, a better camera & infrared. The latter I could do without but definitely a better camera & SD expansion. Those two are the reasons I went from the DROID Maxx to the Note 3. I miss Moto's UI though.

"Another way would be for Motorola to reduce the size of the bezels on the phone. Most manufacturers are doing both with their high-end models." Huh... You might want to send the M8 and Z2 that memo...

Ummm why would you wonder if the sequel to the Ultra be a 6.3 inch phablet? The "Quantum" and the moto phablet are two different phones. One is the follow up to the Droid line and the other is part of the moto x and g line. Stop trying to create confusion for your readers. Thanks.

thats bizarre, I agree, but they do need to do something to differentiate it from the moto x. But, making a 6.3 inch phablet is probably not the answer.
