Verizon to unleash new DROID phones at July 23 event


Verizon is getting straight down to business with the announcement of its new DROID line-up. Last night, Verizon sent out short invites for an event in New York City that will take place next Tuesday, July 23. We’re not sure if the company could have been any more open about the devices it’s planning to announce.Verizon_DROID_Event

As you can see, the invitation makes it obvious that new DROID devices will be announced (What else could “most popular family of devices” mean?). You can see the rumored phones below. From left to right, these devices will be called the DROID Mini, DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX. We’re also hoping that Verizon might finally give an official release date for the HTC One at this event.

What do you guys want to see out of the new DROID line?

    Verizon is all like, “Let’s get down to business! To unveil! The DROIDs!”

      And Motorola is all, “Whatever here comes Moto (Weapon) X.”

  • breckdroid

    Exciting times. I’m stoked to see the final specs on these devices. We’ll get to see if Moto has stepped up to Samsung and HTC challenge. I have a feeling they will not disappoint.

      A constructive comment rather than an animated gif? Shocking abuse of the comment system. ;)

      I agree, while I’m very interested in the Moto X for it’s Googley DNA, Motorola has been building solid hardware for the last couple years and if they really deliver anything close to 48 hours of battery life on the new Maxx that thing should do really well with certain segments.

        I can’t get behind the DROID branding. And Verizon costs a million dollars. Also, I’ve held a grudge against Motorola ever since 2006, when my RAZR dive-bombed out of my locker and broke in half.

        • http://www.technogasms.com Sean Riley

          They all kind’ve suck at branding, if I got hung up on that I’d be out of options. And agreed Verizon is either tied or at least only slightly better than AT&T for charging ungodly sums, but I’ve got LTE in locations that don’t even have reliable 3G on AT&T, Tmo or Sprint so at least they are doing something with all that extra cash.

          • http://technicquill.com Jess Blanchard

            Yeah, but at least the other subpar branding campaigns didn’t result in people confusing a handset with an OS.

            I’m just going to leave this here.

      • breckdroid

        I agree. The “Googley DNA”, IMO, is the most intriguing part of the whole package. It’s also the most variable. If Moto brings an increase to there already stellar battery specs and continues to produce sturdy hardware coupled with Google genes, we are in for a treat.

    Sliding QWERTY Keyboard, please?? I’m really missing the Droid 4, and was hoping for a Droid 5. I can’t seem to get used to the software keyboard on the newer Razr and am even contemplating moving to Sprint for their Photon Q.

    Im switching in October so I would like to see EPICNESS PLEASE! Its been awhile since I was wowed by a phone. I’d have to say the last phone to truely wow was the NEXUS ONE. Anyone care to weigh in?

  • Kent

    I think I’ll just keep my awesomeness, that is the Galaxy Nexus.

  • pj

    What do I want to see in the new Droid lineup? How about the hTc One, minus the Droid. Another lineup of mediocre phones. Meh….

  • 660R

    A large number of people prefer a QWERTY keyboard and have clamored for a Droid 5 for years! Nobody at Motorola seems to listen! Touchscreens drive me crazy. They are so sensitive that when you touch them you can end up in “never-never land” and most people who type on them produce messages that look like they can’t spell!
