Just as expected, this afternoon Verizon has just announced three brand new smartphones to grace their lineup for the rest of the year. That being the new Motorola DROID smartphones to continue with that successful line. Just like last year we have three brand new models, with one being the DROID Mini, a regular DROID ULTRA, and of course the massive 3,500 mAh battery packing DROID MAXX. More details below.

Verizon just announced all the details live on stage in New York City, and they’re still busy talking up the DROID brand, the new smartphones, and of course, Verizon Wireless and their 4G LTE networks. Looking at the images that have been provided the new DROID lineup is impressive to say the least, and extremely thin, but we don’t have final specs quite yet.

Just like all the leaks the new DROIDs have a beautiful Kevlar shell protecting them, and this time it even curves around to the front fascia of the devices. Verizon is also touting a new 8-core “X8 Mobile Computing” system in which these devices use the regular quad-core processors, then a few more cores for contextual processing and natural language cores. We have a feeling there will be plenty of gesture and voice controls on board.


It appears we’ll be enjoying Android 4.2 Jelly Bean here, and the devices rock the same hands-free camera features and new UI we’ve seen in the latest Motorola X leaks. We’re expecting at least a Snapdragon 600 and 2GB of RAM in both the ULTRA and MAXX, but Verizon’s taking their sweet time with all the details. And instead talking up the Kevlar coating and new features.

Stay tuned for pricing and a full rundown of all the specs regarding the three new DROID smartphones.
