Motorola inadvertently reveals details about upcoming Droid Ultra handset

We know something is happening at Motorola, Google’s beleaguered handset manufacturer it purchased in 2011 for $12.5 billion. First, we got confirmation of the rumoured X Phone, Motorola’s foray into next-generation smartphone. Next we saw the redesigned, simplified and be-Googled  Motorola logo.

And now we’re seeing hints of a device called the Droid Ultra, leaked briefly on Motorola’s own website. The device is expected to be fairly mid-range, with a 1.5Ghz dual-core processor, a 4.3-inch qHD display, 8GB of internal storage, an 8MP camera and  2000mAh battery.

The landing page paints the Droid Ultra as “available in a bunch of glossy colours,” with a “high-grade DuPont Kevlar body” that’s “even thinner and…tough as steel.” At 122.5 x 60.9 x 8.3 mm, the Droid Ultra should be a very compact device, seemingly a follow-up to the RAZR M that was released last year.

The CDMA device will likely come to Canada as something else — the Droid name is a product of Verizon — but it shows that Moto is still working the line and running the gamut of demographics. Unfortunately, there is little to differentiate the Droid Ultra from the rest of the market at this point, so unless Motorola pulls something drastic from its hat, this will be just another mid-range Android.

    Am I the only one that

    Think Battery Life………………….

    • Savbers

      Motorola used to do that… I don’t know about now.

      2000 mAh is s**t. Frankly i doubt many cares about how “thin” it is. I would rather trade in a few useless mms for extra battery juice.

      The way that users have made android nowadays doesnt require as much power, the new android platform + new hardware, lets this phone get away with a sleeker battery, you cant judge a phone by its battery size. gotta wait till it comes out to tell

  • casey

    8GB storage and 2000mAh how about nope.

  • Lukeiphone

    what a waste of production by putting a 2000 MAH battery

  • JeffNet

    If the Kevlar body means it is tough and it is inexpensive it might get some traction from kids or parents that have a kid that has already destroyed a phone.

  • Accophox

    8GB and 2000mAh is perfectly fine, if the cost of the device is in line…

  • J,K

    I have been waiting for this form quite sometime. Want to see how Google does with hardware.

    Did not our wireless providers stop selling CDMA phones over a year ago?
