New Droid Ultra confirmed by Motorola’s website
Motorola’s official US website now has a page that lists a smartphone called Droid Ultra. This, of course, has to be one of the Ultra handsets that we heard about last week. There’s no mention of the Razr branding on the page, so that may have been left out.
The complete list of specs currently shown at the Droid Ultra page is exactly the one for the older Razr M – so it’s probably there just as a placeholder. However, there is one paragraph that clearly talks about the real Droid Ultra: “Available in a bunch of glossy colors, this high-grade DuPont Kevlar body proves you can be even thinner and still be tough as steel.”
Unfortunately, an actual photo of the Droid Ultra isn’t provided. Moreover, we don’t know when Motorola and Verizon are going to announce the new family of handsets. It could happen this fall – or earlier – since the new Droids are probably related to Motorola’s X phones that have been confirmed for later this year.
The last Motorola Droid handset introduced by Verizon is the Droid Razr Maxx HD, which is available since November 2012. This is also the last smartphone introduced by Motorola in the US – so it’s about time for new products, isn’t it?
