Here is the Front and Back of the Motorola DROID ULTRA, Verizon’s Next DROID


The Motorola leaks continue to pour in today after seeing their new DROID lineup leak for the first time over the holiday weekend. This time, we’ve got the front and back press render of the DROID ULTRA, once again courtesy of @evleaks. We had previously seen the ULTRA in white, but earlier reports indicated that the phone would also come in red, black (pictured above), and as a MAXX variant, with what we would assume to be a bigger battery. In this new render, we are getting the first look at the kevlar wrapped back, camera, and branding. 

The first thing that stands out is the subtle Motorola logo, along with the words “DROID” and “Verizon.” It doesn’t actually say “Motorola” or “4G LTE” anywhere, though it’s guaranteed to work on Big Red’s LTE network. The camera housing shows a top-centered lens with flash set to the left. The camera may also be surrounded by a speaker, however, it’s tough to tell from this photo.

The camera may end up as a 10MP shooter with an extra “C” sensor that should help “establish white balance and exposure” to create better photos no matter what your environment is, at least according to @evleaks. He also guesses that the phone will sport a 5″ 1080p display and run a Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM.

On the front, we get a third confirmation that these new DROID phones (not the Moto X) will use hardware capacitive navigation buttons rather than on-screen keys.

I have to admit that it seems a bit odd that Verizon is going to release an entire new DROID line of phones made by Motorola (DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini), but also bring us the Moto X sans DROID branding. Why does Verizon need four Motorola phones in its lineup at the same time?

For those keeping track, here are the model numbers of Moto’s new Verizon phones:

  • XT1080 – DROID ULTRA
  • XT1080W – DROID ULTRA (in white)
  • XT1080R – DROID ULTRA (in red)
  • XT1080M – DROID MAXX
  • XT1060 – Moto X
  • XT1030 – DROID Mini

    Why’s there no menu or search button? Looks like a lot of wasted space down there at the bottom.

    f**k verizon and there late phone arrivals and updates.

  • chris420o

    i actually like how it looks…but more excited for the x

  • Kanaga Deepan N

    That model number XT-1080M gives good hope for a FullHD 1080p display in them (except X and Mini)…

    Gah, I know I sound like a broken record but this company and its hideous phones is worrisome.

    It’s so odd that we can’t get a company that produces quality materials/radios like Moto along with some great design cues from HTC/Samsung. It’s like some sick joke that fks us over, is it that much to ask to have solid quality with great design?

    • KDC

      design cues from HTC I agree but Samsung hell no all their phones look the same.

  • chimp98

    It’s the SAME design year after year for these Droid, Kevlar back, Verizon phones! I don’t see any innovations from Motorola but the same rehashed look! Whoever said this looks better than the HTC One is smoking something!

    • chimp98

      Oh and don’t forget that they’re always 6 months behind on the technology curve! 1080 screen?!? 5″ screen? You’re a little late to the game Moto & Verizon.

      • deadpenguins

        So, by that logic, you want phones to increase in size and resolution FOREVER? Soon to be announced in 2020: 13″ 4k resolution phones! /s

        • chimp98

          That’s not my point! Moto is always behind the curve on the latest innovations and brings nothing new to their ‘latest’ hardware. What’s being offered on this handset that’s not on the current flagships that’s already on the market for the last 3 months?!? A new Kevlar pattern?

          • KDC

            umm late to the game I agree on that cause the Droid Razr HD came with the same specs as the S3 which came out and may and the HD came out in October.But the Droid ultra is expected to come out with the snapdragon 800 which neither the s4 or the HTC one is using so they kinda are ahead of the game if it comes out at the same time as the Moto X

    • Liderc

      No kidding, this kevlar has to go. PLEASE VERIZON/MOTO IF YOU’RE LISTENING, LOSE THE KEVLAR. I’m screaming in caps for christ sakes.

  • bananatroll

    i wonder if it will have motoblur

  • Interesting. Lots of choices coming and I’m not sure any of them matter.

    Motorola has me so lost these days. I’m usually on track with new phones coming out, but this has gotten crazy. They all look the same and they have very similar names. How many new “Droids” do we have coming? Just tell me when the new “Hero” phone or the new Nexus comes out. Otherwise, I can’t keep track of all this.
