Even though the Moto X is the most anticipated handset of the Chicago-based phone maker, the rumor mill took some time to reveal the Motorola Droid Ultra specs and its press photo.
Samsung has recently transformed the Galaxy S4 brand into a full line-up of smartphones, by introducing the Galaxy S4 Mini (a mid-ranger with the looks of a shrunken Galaxy S4), Galaxy S4 Active (the water and dust proof version of the flagship smartphone), Galaxy S4 Zoom (a camera phone with 16 megapixel sensor and 10x optical zoom) and the Galaxy S4 Google Edition (which brings the pure Android experience in a Galaxy S4′s body).
Rumor has it that HTC will have a similar approach, as after the HTC One and the HTC One Google Edition were officially introduced, the Taiwan-based company is preparing to launch a HTC One Mini and HTC One Max, the later one being a phablet that aims at Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3.
Motorola will reportedly join the two aforementioned phone makers, as the company aims to take the most out of the Droid brand and make it a family of three: Motorola Droid Maxx, Motorolad Droid Mini, and Motorola Droid Ultra. Today we will be talking about the later one, a smartphone that will take on Apple’s iPhone 5S, Samsung’s Galaxy S4, and HTC’s One.
The guys at The Unlocker got their hands on the first leaked Motorola Droid press photo, courtesy of the infamous leaker @evleaks, who guest posted on their website. The leaked Droid Ultra photo reveals that the smartphone will have a kevlar body and three capacitive buttons below the display, while the Verizon logo confirms that the handset will go on sale at the US-based carrier.
Rumor has it that the Motorola Droid Ultra will pack a primary 10 megapixel camera RGBC, which “will apparently contain an extra sensor (the “C”) that helps establish white balance and exposure,” writes The Unlocker. Sources say that the Droid Ultra will sport a 5-inch full HD display while being powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor helped by 2 GB of RAM.
To me, it’s a bit confusing. Which will be Motorola’s flagship smartphone for this year? The Moto X or the Droid Ultra? Rumor has it that the first one will have a dual-core Snapdragon 400 chipset and HD display, which will make a mid-ranger of the 2013 smartphone market. If so, why all the fuss about the Moto X and not about the Droid Ultra? Any thoughts?
