Picture of Motorola DROID Ultra in white makes droolworthy appearance
An XDA member has obtained a picture of a white Motorola DROID Ultra, although details about the phone are sketchy. The handset that you are drooling over right now is believed to be the XT-1080. Conspiracy theorists take note: this is the XDA member's first post ever on that site. The new Motorola logo adorns the device, which is marked as being confidential property belonging to Motorola.

Just the other day, we showed you an image tweeted by reliable source evleaks. That phone was said to be the XT-1080M, the Motorola DROID MAXX which is the same phone as the XT-1080, but with an extended life battery. The Motorola DROID Ultra has already been spotted on Motorola's website which mentioned the thinness of the device and its Kevlar body. Judging from the photo, it looks like the Motorola DROID Ultra will feature a very thin bezel and a large screen that takes up most of the front body.

While the XT-1080 and the XT-1080M covers the Motorola DROID Ultra and the extended battery version of the phone, the XT-1030 is the Motorola DROID Ultra M. This is expected to be a smaller-screened version of the DROID Ultra.

It's drool worthy because of Kevlar

Nope, still don't like white phones, other than the Lumia series in white. They're pretty hot. (One might say white hot even?) Most white phones just look tacky... this one looks hideous.

Never too many Droid phones(or should I say Android phones) in the mix. Beats seeing different colored iPhone rear cases that are made for the low end market or leaked iPhone 5s internal parts that basically do the same thing. Oh look; the circuit board is 3mm smaller!!! Oh look; the ribbon cable on the camera module is pointing left instead of right!!!

Agreed. The Droid name has lost pretty much all of its luster. Verizon needs to either get rid of it or make it more of an exclusive brand, making sure only a couple premium devices get launched with the name a year.

Really, there are 5, 6 if you count the maxx which amounts to a battery pack for the HD, that's way too many?

Yes. One per OEM is enough. Moto>Samsung>HTC. I'm not throwing LG in there because they or Verizon pretty much have decided to have them EOL when it comes to OS updates out the box.

I disagree kinda, it may be enough, but 2 each isn't too many especially they way they're doing it. May not matter, the success of the S4 and One seem to be implying an end to carrier specific variations of the same phones.

What do you mean Google took over? Motorola is still a company that makes its own independent products, separate from those made in collaboration with Google. If anything, Motorola is taking a step away from Google, because in this picture it has capacitive buttons instead of the on screen ones like Google has been pushing since the Galaxy Nexus.

Motorola issues started first with the encrypted bootloader on the Droid X. Way before Google bought the company. The only device that had legendary status was the Droid OG. If this phone at least matches or exceeds the S4 and HTC One it may be back in the game. It must have a 1080p display, Snapdragon 600 (800 would be fantastic) and IR port (my personal want). A maxx edition with SD card and unlockable bootloader with stock Android would make this phone a legend. If not Note 3 here I come.

Legendary status? to the modding community I assume? That's a small segment of the market. I don't think in the grand scheme it made a difference. Mainly because Motorola never actually had trouble selling devices in the US, and they never really had a big market presence in other large markets. And I don't know how well it's going to do if it's just another top-end smartphone. I personally am anxious, I'm due for an upgrade pretty soon.

Not on screen button = fake

this should be the hero device woodside was talking about. Motorola released an entry level low end smartphone in southamerican markets called the razr d1 that hasn't got on-screen buttons and has got stock android, pure, just with a launcher, a widget and smart actions, that's all. I think this was an old design, from the same team that made the new razr's and they either photographed an old prototype or maybe my theory is that since the razr hd and razr m had a design "flaw" with the chin making the on-screen keyboard difficult to use on the left most used rotation with the space of the on-screen buttons making the chin bigger and not proportional. Maybe motorola is planning to go for everything with the moto x for the masses, killing trends like the iphone and with the moto ultra for the hero device.

well this just went into the running for my next device. HTC One vs. Moto X vs. New Moto Droids, FIGHT!

Two questions for PhoneArena: 1. Why aren't all these Droid leaks tagged in the Verizon category? 2. Why aren't the new Droids listed under upcoming Verizon and Motorola devices?
