Verizon announcing Droid Ultra smartphone line in about a week?


Rumors addressing upcoming Motorola smartphones have lately been split into two camps: it seems like the bulk of the info we’ve been dealing with has concerned the Moto X, but recently there’s been a flurry of activity dealing with a few new Droid models for Verizon. Picking up where the RAZR HD and its kin left off, it’s been looking like we could be about to see the launch of a Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini. Leaked advertising material has been pointing towards an early August launch, but now it looks like the carrier wants to make things official even earlier still, sending out invites to a July 23 press event.

That’s seriously short notice, and we can’t help but wonder if all these leaks might be motivating Verizon to get things started so soon. While the invite doesn’t name any of these rumored handsets directly, nor drop any cheeky hints like LG’s been doing, the carrier’s claim that it will “unveil the next generation of one of [its] most popular family of devices” leaves little to the imagination.

Hopefully, that means we’re just a week away from getting answers to many of our questions about this lineup, including whether or not we can really believe those reports of a 48-hour battery life from the Droid Maxx.
