Verizon release schedule: Droid Ultra/Maxx coming August 20, Droid Mini, HTC One and more August 29
We always assumed August was to be a hectic month for Verizon, with America’s number one wireless network receiving three new Droid family members, plus the Moto X and HTC One, but it turns out the final ten days of this month will be much more crowded than expected.
Specifically, Big Red is said to be currently prepping no less than eight launches, all of which should take place between August 20 and 29. First up, we have the Motorola Droid Ultra and Maxx dropping on the 20th, according to Phone Arena’s tipsters.
That falls in line with Verizon’s own claims from a while ago, so you’d better get ready for Moto’s most impressive two smartphones to date. Three days later, it will be Moto X’s turn to join Big Red, though rumor has it the carrier will not get any preferential treatment from its old partner… for a change.
Three handhelds down, five to go, but surprise, surprise, you only have one more date to squeeze into your busy schedules. August 29 will thus be a big day for the most popular telecommunication provider in the States.
The most glamorous device to see daylight exactly three weeks from now is tipped to be the HTC One, even if at this point the 4.7-incher is old news. Released by AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile a good four months back, the Full HD phone should land on Verizon in an exclusive blue variant and replace the Droid DNA.
Given this fellow is likely to be ignored by the masses, the Droid Mini could rise to the opportunity and bathe in the spotlight. Sporting a tiny (by 2013 standards) 4.3-inch display, the thing doesn’t skimp on hardware, packing the same CPU and RAM as the larger Ultra and Maxx.
Also coming on the 29th, the LG Exalt, LG Enact and Kyocera Hydro Elite are definitely set to play second fiddle to the HTC One and Droid Mini. The first is rumored to be a large feature flip phone, the second may run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and rock a vintage side-sliding physical keyboard, while the Elite should be your mid-range, run-of-the-mill rugged handheld.
