Verizon, in collaboration with Motorola Mobility, unveiled a brand new series of DROIDs: the Maxx, Ultra and Mini.
Motorola launched a new family of phones for use on Verizon’s network.
Motorola’s three new phones are made out of Kevlar, a material five times stronger than steel and as light as plastic. Motorola also chose to include Corning Gorilla Glass to ensure the phones have maximum durability and endurance.
The flagship of the family, the Maxx, packs a 5 inch 720p screen, 2GB RAM, along with a 3500 mAh battery, giving 48 hours of continuous usage. It also features wireless charging and a 32GB of onboard memory. The back of the device is equipped with 10 MP camera. The Maxx is priced at $299 on a 2-year contract, available in soft touch black.
The Ultra is similar to Maxx with the same 5 inch 720p screen, 2GB RAM and 10 MP camera. However, the 2130 mAh battery is pale in comparison to Maxx. It will be priced at $199 on a 2-year contract, available in glossy black, white and red.
The Mini has a much smaller footprint, featuring a 4.3 inch edge to edge 720p screen, along with 2GB RAM and 10 MP camera. It is priced at $99 with a 2-year contract, available only in glossy black.
All DROIDs will be powered by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a newly developed Motorola X8 SoC. The SoC is a heavily customized Qualcomm Snapdragon with a 1.7 GHz dual-core application processor, 400 MHz quad-core GPU, a natural language processor core, and a contextual computing core.
