Right now is an exciting time for Motorola. The company is finally shedding its past, throwing on a new Google-centric logo and pushing its way towards a new direction. While a large part of that direction centers around the much-hyped Moto X, let’s not forget that there are other phones in the pipeline as well.

With that in mind, two new Motorola handsets have now surfaced by way of the FCC, the XT1030 and XT1080. What do we know about these handsets based on the FCC listings? Not a whole lot, other then the phones are packing a ton different of wireless technologies such as Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac, WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100, LTE bands 4 and 13 and EVDO Rev A.

Considering the presence of the LTE bands supported by the two devices, we can make a pretty safe bet that these phones will be making their way to Verizon Wireless. But what the heck are they? First, let’s remember that this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Motorola XT10x0 numbered phone.

Back in May we reported on the XT1060, which at the time was believed to be associated with the XFON (aka Moto X). So that’s three phones, all of which are heading to Verizon.

This makes us wonder, could these three devices all be different versions of the Droid Ultra that we’ve been hearing about? Perhaps the Droid Ultra M, Droid Ultra and Droid Ultra MAXX? That certainly sounds like a reasonable theory, though take it with a grain of salt.

Keep in mind that if one of these models proves to be the Verizon Moto X, it won’t be arriving with Droid branding – at least according to the most recent rumors.

No matter what the phones are named, we know that plenty of new devices are inbound from Motorola. Let’s just hope that the company’s latest efforts can live up to all the hype.
