Description

The Motorola Droid Ultra comes with a 5-inch HD display. The device is both thinner and more durable than earlier devices thanks to a new unibody kevlar construction. Thickness comes at the slim 7.18mm making this the thinnest 4G LTE phone out there. A brand new dual-core X8 Mobile Computing system is powering the device allowing exciting new features like ‘Touchless control’ that has your phone listening to you at all times, something we saw on the Moto X leaks. There's also the 'active display' technology that only lights up a part of the screen to conserve battery. Technically, a dual-core processor is what's under the hood, don't get fooled by the '8-core' talk in the event. The Droid Ultra features an f/2.4 10-megapixel camera and chances are this is the same unit we'll see on the Motorola Moto X.
