Late last month, rumors arrived claiming that Motorola was preparing a new Droid Ultra line of Androids, seemingly mirroring the sort of selection offered through the company’s Droid RAZR family. More recently, some evidence on Motorola’s website itself appeared to give credence to the Droid Ultra name. Today, we get to check out the first purported image of one of these handsets.
While this doesn’t show us much, it certainly does seem to be a Motorola Android, what with that iconic Kevlar weave and all. At first glance, it might easily be mistaken for any number of existing Motorola phones, but look closely at that design. The phone appears to taper-off near its edges, reminiscent of the construction of the HTC One (albeit less gradually). We don’t recall seeing any existing Motorola that has quite this look.
As for that Ferrari branding, there is indeed a Ferrari race event scheduled to take place in New Orleans this fall, so this very well could be some sort of high-end promotional tie-in being prepared in advance.
Then again, maybe this isn’t the Droid Ultra after all, but just one of those unusual boutique phones that pop up from time to time, and all too often are powered by the guts of an existing handset. Right now, we need more info to say with any certainty either way.
Update: Like reader Pedro pointed out in the comments, this looks a bit like a flat sleeve, and that thick bit in the middle could be the phone itself. After looking at existing cases that have similar designs (below), we have to wonder if this find is being misrepresented.
