The chimerical Moto X (aka Google X Phone) has been a star of the rumor mill for so long that we almost can’t believe we’re finally nearing its official unveiling. What’s even more extraordinary is it doesn’t appear to be flying solo, with a Droid Ultra and M Ultra likely escorting it.
The Verizon-bound mystery duo has had a much shorter life in the rumor mix, popping up for the first time just last week. Since then, the Droid Ultra has appeared on Motorola’s website, with very slim details attached to its name, and has got FCC’s stamp of approval under a different moniker.
XT1080 is the model number of the apparently mysterious Motorola phone spotted at the FCC, but through simple deduction we can infer this is the exact same thing as the Ultra. Its little brother, which should be branded as the Droid Razr M Ultra, has itself paid FCC a visit, under the XT1030 name.
Of course, we can’t be 100% sure that the XT1030 is the M Ultra either, but it certainly fits the bill. Just like its sibling, it comes with 4G LTE support on Verizon-friendly frequencies and WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100 connectivity.
Other features revealed by the FCC include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 ac support. The question now is whether we’ll be seeing the two gadgets seek approval in “international” flavors as well or they’ll remain Big Red exclusives. Hard to say at this point, but gun to my head I’d go for the former.
Expected out in a matter of weeks, the Ultra is tipped to sport a Full HD screen of unknown size, while the M Ultra should boast a more modest 720p panel. All the other specs are sadly in a haze, but be sure to check back to us for soon to come updates. For now, are you or are you not excited about Motorola’s first smartphone efforts under Google’s leadership?
