Since 2011, Motorola and Verizon have partnered to merge its popular Android "DROID branding" with the sharp and thin connotations of its storied RAZR brand. The two companies look set to make more changes by launching the DROID Ultra, a possible variant of the Moto X.
Reports have surfaced claiming that Verizon and Motorola will launch a series of Android smartphones similar to the DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, and DROID RAZR M released in 2012. However, the two companies will put the "RAZR" to rest and launch a DROID Ultra line of products that may be Verizon's variant of the Moto X smartphone Motorola promises will be a game-changing Android phone. The "Ultra" name appears to have been confirmed by an unfinished landing page on Motorola.com that says, "DROID ULTRA - THINK THIN."
Motorola has a history of letting details slip on its website before devices are officially announced, and the DROID Ultra is the latest device to prematurely pop-up on the radar. The landing page says that the phone will be available in "a bunch of glossy colors" and will feature the DuPont Kevlar body that adds durability but maintains thinness. The page also includes a long list of hardware specifications, but they are not related to the DROID Ultra. The specs mirror the DROID RAZR M released last year and the accompanying accessories page has items made for the RAZR M, so the specs listed on the page are just placeholders until Motorola adds the updated information. One can only assume that information will arrive soon given that Moto X is expected to launch this summer.source: Motorola, via: Droid Life
