DROID Mini, Ultra and MAXX pose for a lineup; ready for an August 8 launch


Motorola’s plans for the second half of the year remain a bit mysterious with all of their marketing attention going toward the Moto X for the time being. That device seems to be the more Googley future of Motorola, but they are not completely forgetting their past with these additions to the DROID line that has been nearly synonymous with Motorola and often Android itself in the U.S. for the last few years.

We know even less about these devices than the Moto X. Obviously the design language for the line hasn’t undergone any serious changes and the familiar carbon fiber patterned Kevlar is present across all three. The MAXX as we just saw this morning will apparently offer a somewhat mind bending 48 hours of battery. According to leaked photos the Ultra will sport a 10MP camera. The Mini, hold onto your seat, will be smaller than the others, but exact dimensions are unknown. Assuming this lineup is to scale it’s safe to assume it’s in 4.3-4.5-inch range with the other two closer to the increasingly common 5-inch mark.

Finally based on the earlier MAXX leak we also know that it should be arriving on August 8 with presumably both of its siblings debuting along with it. Busy times for Verizon with their One also due any time now.

So which of Motorola’s offering are you most interested in? The Moto X with it’s Google DNA, but perhaps less than flagship specs or is one of these DROIDs more up your alley?

    The choice will be made when moneys to be paid…

    The MAXX interests me if it is otherwise the same as the Ultra besides the battery and the camera doesn’t suck like in a lot if Moto phones. If only HTC would release the Butterfly S here on Verizon (or if Nexus hardware came to Verizon which we know won’t happen).

      Based on the last couple rounds of Droids from Motorola I would guess that this is precisely what the MAXX will be and if it can really manage 48 hours of battery life that’s awfully tempting.

        OK, I didn’t want to make any assumptions, but historically it seems to be the case. I’ll be happy with getting to 25% at the end of the day with HEAVY usage.

    that red circle thing is so 2000′s CGI – and ugly…

      They used to at least change it up from one device to the next, they’ve all looked pretty much the same for the last few that I can recall.
