There has been reports that Motorola will release the DROID ULTRA series new devices, but now it seems rumors have been confirmed by Motorola officially, on the latest “DROID ULTRA” exclusive page, Motorola uses “Think Thin” to describe the new model is more slim.

Although it is unclear what this new device look like, Motorola still marks related features on the “DROID ULTRA” page, for example, this new smartphone will have a variety of colors, Motorola also uses “Think Thin” to describe the new machine has slim enough frame, but as it’s with top grade Dupont KEVLAR fiber surface, the protection performance is as tough as steel.

Of course, it’s not the first time for Motorola to use Kevlar material on the smart phone, its light weight, good toughness and high strength main features, allow the phone to have enough toughness while with a slim frame, which will largely enhance the phone’s protective performance and durability.

Interestingly, Motorola also lists part of the hardware specifications of the DROID ULTRA series new devices on the dedicated page, including 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8 MP main camera and a 300,000 pixel front camera, with LED flash and 8GB of storage space, it supports up to 32GB micro-SD memory card expansion, and also it has a 2000mAh battery.

At the same time this new device is equipped with Android4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system and supports Wi-Fi wireless Internet access and Bluetooth, GPS, NFC and 4G network capabilities. Its size is 60.9*122.5*8.3mm, and it weights 126 grams. However, since these configurations are identical with the current Motorola RAZR M. Therefore, the industry believes that these hardware parameters may not be true, true functional specifications of DROID ULTRA series new devices needs to wait till its release.

Although it’s still unknown what features Motorola DROID ULTRA series new device has, but according to the droid-life website report, @evleaks disclosed on Twitter that Motorola would have a series of new devices launched for the U.S. operator Verizon, they are the black, white and red Motorola DROID ULTRA, black and white DROID Mini as well as the DROID MAXX which may be the X Phone and so on.

Therefore, if the DROID MAXX is the legendary X Phone, then it means that it will be released on August 1, so it’s naturally reasonable for the series theme pages appearing in the official website.

And another report thinks that, the phone may use AMOLED and LCD displays according to different market. And there are rumors that Samsung is not ready to use flexible display in Note 3 device, although they did consider this option.

And now, South Korean media MT Media reports said, Galaxy Note 3 with flexible display will be put into mass production in August, and officially released in September. However, the authenticity of this statement is difficult to trace.

This report gives several reasons why Samsung Note 3 will use flexible displays, including the Galaxy S4 sales lower than expected, as well as the threat from LG. LG has previously publicly stated that they are making a phone with flexible display, which is scheduled to release in Q4 of this year.

In addition, Sony and HTC these two competitors will compete with Samsung in the giant screen mobile phone market. Sony has officially released the first giant-screen phone Xperia Z Ultra a few days ago, and HTC is also reported to launch a One Max (T6). Both phones are strong competitors of the Galaxy Note 3.

This South Korean media also said that apparently Samsung wants to show the world that it is still with the innovative strength to develop this product. If they launch the Note 3 with flexible display, thent this phone will be the first flexible screen phone available in the market.
