After having recently been spotted in reportedly leaked photos, the Motorola Droid Ultra is now the star of a purported press image.

Unsurprisingly, the picture comes from known leakster @evleaks (image below), who presented a similar press photo for the new Motorola Droid Maxx just a few days ago. As you can see, the image is fairly similar to the white Droid Ultra leak we saw the other days, and chances are it’s showing the real thing, although we won’t be able to confirm that just yet.

Apparently having model number XT1080 / XT1080W (white) / XT1080R (red), the Droid Ultra is expected to be unveiled in the very near future alongside two other new Android handsets (not counting the Moto X) including the aforementioned Droid Maxx (XT1080M) and the Droid Mini (XT1030).

While the Droid Ultra product name has been inadvertently confirmed by Motorola on its website, its specs and features are still missing in action. The Unlockr speculates that the phone would pack an almost 5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, which are high-end specs by this year’s expectations.

However, such a phone would trump the Moto X phone, which is expected to be the company’s flagship smartphone, and which is rumored to equip a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 processor – and that would certainly be a little surprising.

That said, we’re going to remind you that neither phone is official, and these are just rumors and speculations.

More interestingly though, the Droid Ultra is said to have a 10-megapixel camera that would pack some new abilities:

[quote qtext=”One nice feature that should be a warm welcome for Motorola fans accustomed to sub-par imaging from the company’s handsets: the camera is said to be a so-called 10-megapixel RGBC model, which will apparently contain an extra sensor (the “C”) that helps establish white balance and exposure. The end result is faster captures and, more importantly, better-looking shots in more diverse environments.” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

Coincidently, the Moto X is also rumored to have a 10-megapixel camera, with a recent report hinting that the handset would feature a Clear Pixel camera that would make “‘dark, blurry pics and lack of details” will be things of the past,” at least according to Taylor Wimberly, a source of mostly-accurate Moto X rumors.

Is it possible that the new Motorola Android smartphones will all come with improved camera features? After all, not too long ago, Google did hint it’s focusing on improving the camera phone experience.

Motorola is expected to hold a special press event in the coming days, and the Moto X is rumored not to be the star of it. That means the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini could be officially announced later this week.
