Rumor: Motorola Droid RAZR Ultra and RAZR M Ultra coming to Verizon

It’s been a big day for Motorola-related news so far. Not only have we seen what is allegedly the Sprint version of the Moto X, we also got our first peak at Motorola’s new Google-influenced logo.

The day isn’t over yet, and now we bring word of the Motorola Droid RAZR Ultra and Razr M Ultra. The latest news comes to us from the well-known and highly accurate @evleaks.

It seems to be a little odd that Motorola would continue pushing its Droid RAZR line with Google guiding the company towards a “new direction” – but considering the Droid RAZR’s past success, we can’t say we are totally surprised to hear that Verizon and Motorola are teaming up once again for new DROID branded devices.


As you see in the tweet above, we don’t receive any real information besides a simple ‘confirmation’ that new Motorola Droid RAZR handsets are on their way. This leaves us rather curious as to what exactly we should expect with the new Ultra handsets.

Are the Razr Ultra and Razr M Ultra the Verizon versions of the Moto X project? Or will their still be a completely separate Moto X Verizon handset?

Current rumors suggest that the Moto X’s launch could be imminent, so it’s possible that the cross-carrier Motorola handset could still be coming to Verizon, with the Razr Ultra and RAZR Ultra M sticking to the traditional fall release schedule.

Unfortunately, @evleaks hint of what is to come leaves us with more questions than answers. The good news is that once these kinds of ‘leaks’ start surfacing, we can expect plenty more in the days and weeks to come.

What do you think, would you like to see a refreshed Droid RAZR series from Verizon or not?

    if the droid razr series had completely stock android i would have bought it

  • John Linden

    Stock Android or no reason to buy this over Galaxy series

    • Cal Rankin

      Motorola has probably one of the closest resemblances to the vanilla android of any. then again, the Galaxies, have more features…

      • Terry

        stock is overrated and boring, sorry, prefer to have sense 5 than stock.

        • Brian Farrell

          my last phone was a Rezound and I loved the Sense skin. There icons are better than Vanilla in my opinion. To bad the battery sucked on that and the extended made it a brick. I enjoyed but it took almost a year to get ICS and Jelly Bean was pipe dream.

        • Jillxz

          I do agree.

          • Cal Rankin

            I’m sorry boys, but vanilla has good features, too, and it’s actually what I prefer, and apparently, that’s what John wanted, too.

      • KDC

        yea but most of their features are gimmicky or you just don’t use them. stock looks way cleaner but their are some stuff on the galaxy series that are useful like the reader mode.I have a galaxy s3 now and i love that feature and the battery percentage and notification toggles that’s what they need to put in stock more manufacturers are doing that like on htc one and the sony z they have the battery percentage and notification toggles running on 4.2.2

    • Jillxz

      Every reason to buy this over the Galaxy series without stock Android.

      • Brian Farrell

        No Doubt. I believe Moto under Google is going back to the top. Build quality, batteries and radios are top the line. Love my Razr HD

        • Jillxz

          But the mid-range specs won’t be high end , so I doubt Moto will go back to the top. It’s a shame that Google is going to destroy that Moto. But mark my words they will definitely do so.

  • Brian Farrell

    That logo indicate a Nexus Razr, which pisses my of because I upgraded to a Razr HD last Xmas.. I love the phone, the battery last me a day and half (not MAXX) and it is close to pure Android. I actually liked Touchwiz when I played with my buddies S3, but I chose the Razr HD because of the batter life and awesome Moto build quality…

  • KDC

    if this phone comes with a snapdragon 600 or 800,1080p screen,4000mah battery they can take my money plus motorola build quality and radios and a better camera since google is backing them now would be a awesome phone.
