Entire New DROID Family Poses Together: ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini

droid ultra and mini

Thanks once again to @evleaks, we now have the pictures of the entire new Motorola DROID family that is headed to Verizon. From left to right you are looking at the DROID Mini (first picture of it), DROID ULTRA, and the battery beast known as the DROID MAXX. As we sort of expected, this whole new family really just looks like a remake of last year’s DROID line that featured the RAZR HD and RAZR M. 

In terms of specs for each, it’s all still a mystery, though we have a feeling that could change at any moment. The ULTRA and MAXX are rumored to have 5-inch 1080p displays and 10MP cameras, but the Mini details have yet to surface.

Newly leaked story boards from a marketing agency who likely has the contract on these new Motorola devices show the MAXX as having 2-day battery life and the ULTRA potentially launching on August 8.

    Hey Kellex, are you hearing anything about these phones being the first VoLTE for Verizon? My brother is a VW employee and he says that they are rolling the new voice services in the 4th Q.

  • KewlDawg

    Do these have wireless charging? At least optional?
    Is a removable battery back?

  • RoadsterHD1

    Do these have Mini HDMI out? I hope so.

  • DrSneaky

    Motorola has the best Android experience: Professional, smart actions, lapdocks (amazing after ICS updgrade but useless if you have a laptop – got mine for $50 new) and good phones. I am a Droid Bionic owner, and I LOVE MY BIONIC. My stock unaltered Bionic beats Droid Razr Maxx and Samsung Galaxy S3 in speedtest off Wifi router (4G is different story). Samsung makes inferior Wifi, and I don’t know what the Razr Maxx user excuse was when I beat his phone on his own router, oh yeah… he said the case slowed the wifi down… w/e

    I wonder if any of the people who have complained about their Bionic have taken the time to reformat/factory reset or learn how to use a computer device. (If you had a pc with only 512 mb of ram would you leave multiple apps open or use live wallpapers?) I almost guarantee if you get the extended battery (from Motorola brand new) and reformat your phone and learn how to swype close your apps you would be able to “get by” until your dream phone arrives since everyone knows what they hate, they should be able to figure out what they love.

    Motorola really made a mistake in releasing 2 versions of the full size Razr line. (Razr and Razr Maxx, and Razr HD and HD Max), We are seriously talking about less than millimeters in differences in thickness. Moto should only sell the Maxx line and Mini lines of their phone. Other than Blur overlay (which in my opinion makes the interface professional instead of child like with stock Android and HTC/Samsung default themes.

    I am a release day buyer (Sept 8 2010/ my birthday present to myself) going from a regular flip phone to a smart phone after having an iTouch 16gb I new the iOS ecosystem was not for me. I do regret having heard about a Razr/Razr Maxx being announced days later. BUT I still use my phone more productively than people I know with S3 and S4.

    I am really looking forward to the final announcement of the Moto X phone specs and this Droid Maxx is looking like a winner to me as well, the Razr Mini has no place in my life and same goes for Razr Ultra. I would like to see a megapixel push from Motorola (at least 16+ megapixel) and possibly a Motorola Zoom with an optical zoom lenses instead of digital zoom which deteriorates quality, kind of like S4 Zoom, I really think

    • RoadsterHD1

      I’m with you I love my Bionic too. Since ICS and now JB My Bionic works flawlessly. Better faster and more productive than my wife’s Droid-4 and my friends RAZR, and RAZR MAXX. I know what you mean about the memory and background processes. It make a huge difference when you know your phone. The DROID MAXX looks like a worthy upgrade. I think it’s going to redefine power…

    • Dirtdawg57

      The Bionic is hands down the best electronic I have ever bought. With the HD dock lapdock and Web top, I think it is the most versatile phone made. It replaces my desk top, laptop and sometimes even Xbox. With a blue tooth control it can be a gaming console on the TV or a portable gaming device on the lapdock. Unlike other phones it isn’t limited to what you can do on a 5 inch screen. Webtop makes a better than Windows desktop experience. It is a shame that it got such a bad rap,mine has almalmost flflawless from day one and every time I look into upgrading I feel like I am downgrading.

  • Aaron

    So now it seems that Motorola has moved away from their practice of making a different device for every carrier, and now will just be releasing one mediocre device to all the carriers, and will still only sell their best phones on Verizon. I’m becoming a bigger fan of Samsung all the time. Galaxy S4 on every carrier, DROID Ultra a Verizon exclusive. Sorry Bionic, but the new Motorola is the same as the old Motorola.

  • anezarati

    i dont understand why anyone would want to by an ultra if it has similar specs to the maxx and the maxx has a 2 day battery life.

  • Knlegend1

    This is stupid as hell. Why the hell would someone choose the regular over the Maxx? Don’t say size because its still small/thin.

  • Knlegend1

    What an ugly family!

  • Kanaga Deepan N

    Looks like Ultra-Mini is NOT as mini as Razr-M… 4.5″ screen, may be…

  • C-Law

    Verizon is so stupid. I hope these phones fail miserably

  • jh123416

    Where’s Bionic? I’ve got a question for him!

    • Bionic

      ?

      • jh123416

        2 questions

        1) What’s the processor that’s going to be in the Moto X?
        2) With the bigger hero device, why would they announce the Moto X this month (or whenever) and then hold a whole different event in say two months for the hero?

        • Bionic

          1. Unconfirmed snapdragon 600

          2. Don’t know

          • jh123416

            Why more VERY important Q:

            When the hell is this thing going to get announced??

      • RoadsterHD1

        Do these phone (Droid MAXX) have mini HDMI out?

        • Bionic

          no idea

          • RoadsterHD1

            ok, thanks.

    • Bionic

      I’m at work so might not respond quickly

  • fish1552

    Why not call them what they really are: DROID LOCKED Mini, DROID LOCKED U or DROID LOCKED X.

    • Detonation

      Because everyone outside of the android enthusiast community couldn’t care less about that.

      • Knlegend1

        Its still funny.

      • fish1552

        Boy, you REALLY understand sarcasm don’t you?

  • David Benson

    These phones look great. I would pick up the MAXX for sure… BUT not going to because I want to keep my unlimited plan.

    • riley2cool

      Thank you! I’m still pissed as well with this no more unlimited crap. I’m still on this crappy Bionic with unlimited waiting to buy either the MAXX or HTC One at retail price. Good to know someone else feels my pain.

      • David Benson

        I was about to go on Swappa and buy a phone, but the Moto X sounds like it could be around the same price new off contract

  • BroChaos

    am i the only one who sees the same phone three times in a row?

    • David Benson

      Well the two on the right are the same phone, just one is MAXX so it will be thicker with a bigger battery.

      • BroChaos

        well yeah, but i mean for all we know, they made that whole image with just one phone and a little resizing. the only thing that i notice that is different is the location of the mic on the M?

        • David Benson

          Is that bad that they did that? You will find out what the phones look like soon.

  • Kanaga Deepan N

    LG has started using OnScreen keys (G2).. Moto has started using Capacitive keys.. Am I dreaming???

  • Daniel Russell

    What’s the difference between the ULTRA and MAXX? They seem to be exactly the same…

    • Kanaga Deepan N

      Bigger BATTERY…
      Bigger PRICE…

      • steve30x

        so who has the bigger battery the MAxx or Ultra since both names sound like it could be one or the other now. Is that the only difference? There has to be more to it, I hope. they should’ve just left at mini, maxx imo.

    • Josh C

      Battery and $50 on-contract price difference.

      • Daniel Russell

        They should have just stuck with the naming convention from before. Droid ULTRA and Droid ULTRA MAXX. Either way. Both are horrible names.

  • Trueblue711

    I’m kinda sad to say this, but I’m more excited for this phone than the Moto X. Better specs, battery, and even design.

    • michael arazan

      Moto x is still all rumors, nothing confirmed yet except that the frequencies have been approved by the FCC. They could still change up some of the hardware if needed

      • Emily

        Sounds like me. Haha. Earlier this year I was actually trying to get a second hand Razr M to replace my Nexus. I liked that my mom’s was so small and ran very smoothly.

  • JonathonFlores

    One word: Innovative

    • cancerous_it

      They are. They are finding newer ways to lock down the bootloader.

  • vOc627

    In all seriousness, I’m sure a lot of people fell in love with the Original Droid just like I did. It felt like an unbreakable beast with endless dev support.

    I bought into what Motorola was cooking. I went on to buying the Droid X, and lastly the Bionic. I cannot begin to tell you how disillusioned I felt with the Bionic. Complete buyers remorse. And although the battery life was terrible; that Galaxy Nexus I bought soon after felt pretty sweet.

    Since then it’s been all about Samsung and I haven’t looked back. I can’t speak for everyone else but it’s going to take something amazing from the Moto camp to get me to even look their way.

    A serious flagship phone that competes and excels past Samsung/HTC’s offerings. And no locked bootloaders damn it.

    • Kevin

      i can barely even use my bionic at this point in time, i’m desperately waiting for a new phone i want on verizon, and while these look nice, i’m not sure i want to fall for the moto/bionic trick again.

      • vOc627

        Just don’t. This smells of Bionic. Wait for something with a Snap 800 that tickles your fancy. I wouldn’t even jump on an S4/One if you haven’t already.

        • Kevin

          those were the two i’ve been pondering, but at this point, i think it will be worth my while to see what comes beyond that. the LG G2 has me intrigued as of now.

          • vOc627

            Personally I’m not a fan of the One. Primarily because of the button layout. I’ve got an S4 running CM, and its been fantastic but to each his/her own. The LG is looking promising and after the Nexus 4 my opinion of them has certainly gotten better.

          • Kevin

            yeah, sounds like the next couple months will be pretty revealing. i just need something soon, i keep coming closer to smashing my bionic with all of its lag and force closing.

          • vOc627

            You could always look into selling your phone and buying an S3 as a stop gap. Take a look at Swappa,com

          • Kevin

            i’ll probably just stick it out for another month or so and hopefully be able to decide by then.

        • ROB

          I agree 1000%. I am waiting till November to see what all new phones are out with the new processor. The new Samsung s4 is supposed to be LTA compatible and the Verizon version will be voice over LTE also.

          Sounds like the same old verizon/motorola scam…

      • Mark Schleupner

        Geez… all this hate towards the Bionic! I still use mine and it works great – of course, I am still using rooted ICS overclocked at 1.25GHz, but it’s the best phone I’ve ever owned. I love the lapdock too – great for watching videos. I do, however, think it really sucks that the Razr update blocks the bootloader exploit, but then again, I don’t think Verizon is going to update the Bionic again…

        • TylerCameron

          ICS?
          You’re behind. The Bionic has had 4.1 for a while.

          • Kevin

            based on my experience with that upgrade, he probably shouldn’t update.

          • TylerCameron

            Why?
            4.1 makes everything better o_O
            Higher version numbers almost always equate to better experiences.

          • Kevin

            my phone has more lag and more apps freeze/force close than they ever used to after that upgrade.

          • Justtyn Hutcheson

            I have a Razr and a Bionic, and the only thing I’ve seen with either one since I’ve had them since launch day is that on 4.0+, restarting (turning off and back on, not a factory reset) every week or so really really helps. Not sure if its a small cache, a Dalvik VM thing, or what, but I haven’t seen a single problem with either one.

            On the topic of these devices, I’m sticking with Motorola for my next upgrade as well, provided they are on-par with the S4/One. I like where Motorola is headed, and as long as they deliver what I know they’re capable of, I know I’ll be happy for another 2+ years.

          • Mark Schleupner

            I read somewhere that the 4.1.2 that was released was version .22 and that there was a version .23 that was less buggy and better, but Verizon released the .22 version instead. I’ve looked, but I couldn’t find version .23 on the internet anywhere.

          • ROB

            If your looking for the .23 version google House of Bionic and start reading. I got it. Just off the upgrade path now.

          • Mark Schleupner

            I had 4.1.2 for two months and it stuttered and froze. The volume control had issues as well. I called Verizon to complain and they sent me out a “new” phone that was supposed to have the factory install of 4.1.2, but to my surprise and delight, they sent me one with 4.0.4!

    • Trueblue711

      In all fairness, the Bionic was an exceptionally bad case on both of VZ and Moto’s end. Moto still has a bad track record to clear up. I’m still feeling the burns of my Droid X and the issues I’ve seen on friends’ Droid 2/3/others.

          I think I’m going to include the Palm Pre for VZ marketing the phone only as a female smartphone, specifically for moms.

          • normmcgarry

            Palm Pre was a female smartphone that should have only appealed to Moms.

          • TylerCameron

            But think back to when the Pre just came out.
            Android was like beta software, Blackberry was dying, and WebOS was something new and truly innovative.

        • Raven

          Umm, what was wrong with the Droid 4 other than being the first Droid with a non replaceable battery? Mine is running stock 4.1.2 rooted and I still love it. My battery life is a bit less than I would like, but it is worth it to me to have the best physical keyboard phone ever made. My wife still loves hers as well. I know it wasn’t the most popular phone ever, but it hardly deserves to be on a Wall of Shame.

          • dhinged

            The screen sucked and there was no spell-check/auto-correct or suggestions while the keyboard was open.

          • thelolotov

            There is on Cyanogenmod! Which you’d have to be crazy not to use.

          • dhinged

            You know, I think rooting is a good reason to get that phone, since it’s the perfect work device for a Linux admin.

          • Raven

            Which is one of the reasons I love it. It is far easier to ssh and modify shell scripts from a physical keyboard.

          • Raven

            The screen is not the greatest, but it is not that bad either. It could certainly have had a little less bezzle. As for the keyboard, I am not sure what you are talking about. Both the stock Moto keyboard and Swiftkey worked fine with auto-correct and suggestions. Swype, perhaps, did not, but who needs Swype with Swiftkey 3 Flow.

          • dhinged

            When you type in portrait mode in the virtual stock Android keyboard, spell-check suggestions pop up. When you open the keyboard in landscape, they don’t, and auto-correct doesn’t work. I’ve tried it on multiple Droid 4′s, and it happened on the original Droid and the Droid 2. Motorola disables it for some reason.

    • Dave

      My thoughts exactly. But now I notice there are very few differences between a mid-range phone and a flagship phone, only ones an Android extremist would care about. The average Joe can get by totally fine on a mid range device, and do everything they need to.

    • Jared Krinsky

      Likewise. I loved my OG Droid and as soon as I got the Bionic it all went to hell. Broke out of the box and then the replacement broke a week later, so did the one after that. They eventually gave me a Rezound instead which I loved until it started kicking the bucket with poor battery life and cooking my leg on multiple occasions. I have my Galaxy S4 now and love practically everything about it.

    • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

      The one thing that is going to hold me back from getting a Motorola made phone is the accessories. It seems Samsung has sewed up just about every case, accessory and dock maker and for some reason their devices seem to be the most compatible with bluetooth devices, etc. Now if only Samsung would make a webtop like competitor!

      • Aaron

        I think you nailed it. I don’t know about the Webtop part, but accessories are a must for a top tier device.

        • https://www.facebook.com/aaron.williams.125 Champion1229

          Webtop is basically just a desktop dock that you can put your phone into and on the back of the dock is full sized USB ports, a mini HDMI port, AUX output and power in. It’s mainly used to hook up your phone to say an entertainment system to play YouTube videos and Motorola even made a special dock mode that could make the phone turn into essentially a full sized computer with a mouse and keyboard.

          • Aaron

            I’m familiar with what Webtop is, I just don’t think it is a must have. Maybe at some point in the future it will be the way we all handle our computing needs. But for now it just never caught on and was only minimally productive. And I think Asus has done it better with their padfone and transformer series than Motorola ever has.

  • thebigmann

    I’ll never buy another Moto phone until they prove to me their camera is a true contender.

    • http://BGR.COM/ riggs

      definitely agree, but you’ll probably get flamed hard for that comment. “Go get a dedicated camera if you care about photos!”

      • thebigmann

        That was my thought originally. I have a dedicated camera, so I figured I’d be fine.

        Looking back, though, too many of the things I’d really like to have good photos of have been random, brief events when I didn’t have my dedicated shooter. To me anyway, having a respectably performing camera in my pocket at all times would make a big difference.

      • TylerCameron

        Motorola phones have historically been poor performers in the camera department.
        Who makes the image sensors for Motorola phones?

  • Sirx

    Say what you want, but I’ll vote with my wallet for the few manufacturers who aren’t too stuck-on-stupid to put a really good battery in a phone. Top contender to replace with GNex right here.

  • BRIM

    I don’t get the logic behind Verizon & Moto releasing a phone and releasing the EXACT phone but with a much better battery as a premium feature.

    Why not JUST release the Maxx Only as the one phone to get?

    • EC8CH

      No kidding, do people really carry about a mm of thickness more than better battery life.

      • Trueblue711

        I think it’s more about cost. The battery is one of the most expensive components of the phone. Why make everyone pay for something they might not want?

      • Dave

        It’s so dumb. In general nowadays all phones are “sleek” or “thin” enough.

    • TomStieger

      Because, this gives consumers a choice: “Do I want to be a cheap skate and regret my decision? Or do I go all out and buy the $300 MAXX version?” This is a deliberate marketing attempt to make the choice between $100, $200, or $300 to spend vs just $300 or nothing. I believe there is research out there that shows these things work on consumers.

      I’m not convinced this will work against the Samsung choices out there, but it is worth a shot! :-)

      • Justtyn Hutcheson

        Motorola is looking like the only company who gives a damn about people who like smaller-screen devices. The Razr M last year was the best mid-size (not mid-range) device made, and the XFON and Mini this year look to follow that trend of not skimping on the rest of the internals just because the screen if smaller.

        As for the battery, for many buyers the battery in the Razr HD was plenty large enough for an average day’s use, with the added bonus of being smaller than the Maxx. The Maxx is purpose-built for heavy users as well as those who can’t be reliably near a charger at any given time. Different purposes, different devices. Makes sense to me /shrug

      • BCoils

        Exactly. People would complain if they released 1 phone just as they’re complaining about multiple options being released. Sad state of human nature.

      • Flat_Stanley

        If you give people 2 choice, they will choose the second one. If you give people 3 choices, they will choose the middle one. Typically the middle one has the highest profit margin.

    • JonathonFlores

      I Agree with Tom.
      It’s like popcorn at the movies. $3 for a small or $7 for a large (with free refills). Studies show more people will buy the small bc $7 is waaay too much for popcorn. You put a medium for $6 and suddenly the vaule of large popcorn is increased. The Droid Ultra isnt meant to be bought. They dont want you to buy it. It’s simply there to convince you that the Droid Maxx is a value. A few million people shell out an extra $50-$100 and you’re instantly in the black.

    • Kanaga Deepan N

      It is still better than releasing small battery one first and releasing bigger battery one after 6 months…

  • Ninjak

    Considering i was looking to replace my Rezound with a RAZR Maxx HD at one point anyhow, I’m really not bothered by the chin and capacitive buttons on the Ultra and Maxx here at all. On-screen buttons are nice and all, but I care more about the features and battery life than niggles like that. Still, it’s not as if Moto has the only new devices in the pipeline. While I’d love to get something as good for Verizon directly from the Google Play store, i don’t envision a hero device for Verizon appearing via that avenue soon. Even if these phones are considered part of the “old guard”, it’s nice for users to have options.

  • kixofmyg0t

    I’m gonna go ahead and say that I think that these phones will have the same specs as X under the hood. Dual core S4 Pro with multiple other specialized chips inside.

    48 hour battery life? Has to have a bigger battery than Vanquish did.

    • LiterofCola

      But if the X has that rumored 720p screen…….nah.

      • Justtyn Hutcheson

        XFON Mini, Ultra Moto X (rumored) flagship. releasing a completely better specced phone on Verizon only would be a terrible idea.

      • kixofmyg0t

        Well we know it has a 5″ 1080p screen(well it’s rumored at least) I’m saying other than battery and screen they’re the same. Like the RAZR Hd and M were.

        I don’t see how they could get 48 hour battery life with a 5″ screen and a rumored Snapdragon 800.

        I do think X will have a 4.8″ 720p AMOLED screen, A bunch of cores other than the S4 Pro inside like Ultra does.

        I’m really waiting to see the kernel on these things. I wanna know how the heck they managed to get all those cores to work together.

      • TylerCameron

        What’s wrong with 720p?

        1080p is a bad idea for anything under 5.5″ because there are no android apps optimized for such a high pixel density. What this means is apps will scale and it will look like ass. Like when the iPhone 4 first came out and there were hardly any retina display optimized apps? Same thing will happen here.

  • Weber

    Check out all that innovation!

    Here’s hoping Moto takes the components from the Maxx and makes the fabled Moto X “Hero” device late 2013 or early 2014.

    can we please stop with the “MAXX” names. there are becoming like 4912343415 million phones with the name MAXX, think of something new.

    • vOc627

      How about MAXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXxxxxxxxxxx

      • DanSan

        MAXXZZZXXXXX ULTRAZ

        • vOc627

          Super MaXXXXXXXXX 2 Turbo Championship Edition

    • Joseph Pojunis

      There’s only two right now, and this would be the third. That’s close to 4912343415 million though. Either way, I agree, it’s kind of annoying.

    • Guest

      Actually, there are 3.

  • LiterofCola

    I know there’s a lot of haters out there regarding these phones, but if the rumored specs are true, to include the Snapdragon 800 quad, then these look pretty solid. Remember that most consumers don’t flash their phones and want a good reliable phone with up to date specs. These phones fit the bill

      Was told yesterday that it won’t be the Snapdragon 800, but that Motorola is doing some other innovative things with cores.

      • MichaelFranz

        and you kill our dreams….thanks Kellex :p

        • LiterofCola

          lmao, yeah…well let’s see what those “interesting things” will be.

            Dedicated processor for VZ Navigator and Backup Assistant for super fast Verizon fuckery

            You are in the Verizon ZONE!

        LULZ!!!!

        …okay, time to lay off the coffee

        Specs =! experience. Hoping that these new Moto devices finally put that to rest.

      • Sam_K

        Really? No Snapdragon 800. How disappointing. Is this Motorola repeating the same mistakes as before? When they released the Razr HD/Razr Maxx HD on Verizon 3 months after the Galaxy S3, it had the same Snapdragon S4 processor with less RAM than the S3 so other than the large battery in the Razr Maxx HD, there was no reason to select Razr HD/Razr Maxx HD over the Galaxy S3. If they release the Droid Ultra/Maxx with the same Snapdragon 600 processor that’s in the Galaxy S4 then it will be the same thing all over again. If the Droid Ultra/Maxx come out in August, it will be 3 months after the Galaxy S4 was released on Verizon and no reason to get either one over the Galaxy S4.

      • Greyhame

        With 3 new DROID phones, will Verizon still release the X Phone?

  • vOc627

    Can’t wait!

  • Dan

    Oh

  • chris125

    More mediocre droid phones. Woohoo /s

    Whoah! Never seen anything like that before.

  • Dee Mann

    such a waist of a product

    • andrew

      waste of a comment

        waste of a reply

        • TylerCameron

          Waste of internets.

    • fish1552

      Only if you eat them.

  • Justin Scarano

    why with the physical buttons???

    • vOc627

      Removing on screen keys provided them with the extra day of battery life. ^_^

      • http://meatcastle.com/ Youre My Boy Bloo

        Wut?

        • vOc627

          Sarcasm….sshhhhh….

    • MichaelFranz

      this is the only question i have….other then that they seem pretty legit, especially if they do have a snapdragon 800….

    • EC8CH

      I blame Verizon.

      • lgreg64

        agreed. the only reason these phones exist is for Verizon.

      • Verizon

        What the hell did I do?

    • LiterofCola

      I agree, should have stayed with the on-screen buttons

    • http://BGR.COM/ riggs

      All I see is capacitive keys.

      • fish1552

        The people who down voted this must be blind. They are capacitive even if printed/etched on the glass portion of the display. NOT physical 3D buttons.

    • http://www.linkedin.com/in/PhilHamlin Phil Hamlin

      Pretty soon, all verizon phones will have 3 physical buttons across the bottom:

      “V” “Z” “W”

      • Kanaga Deepan N

        But “W”, “T”, “F” will be better than “V”, “Z”, “W” that, imho…

    • Sirx

      Which is the more compelling feature here: Extraordinary battery life, or the style of the buttons? Priorities, dude. Priorities.

    • sonicyoof

      And the carbon fiber, yuck.

  • vOc627

    WHAT AN AMAZING LINE UP OF PHONES!!!!! STAND BACK….GAME CHANGER ON ITS WAY!
