Sooner or later Motorola will get around to announcing its 2013 smartphone lineup. Until then, we’ll have to rely on leaks about the upcoming Moto X and next-gen Motorola Droid family.
Fortunately the leaks keep coming. Today @evleaks has posted images of the upcoming Droid Mini, Droid Ultra, and Droid MAXX, all headed for Verizon. And Android Central scored some more info about one of those models.
The Motorola Droid MAXX is said to have a whopping 48-hour battery. That’s up from the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX which gets around 21 hours of talk time.
While it’s tough to say if you’ll actually get 2 full days of battery life under real-world conditions, at a time when many smartphones hardly last from morning to night, it’s nice to see Motorola continuing to push battery life as a feature.
Meanwhile the Droid Ultra is expected to have a thin, sturdy case made of kevler, and the Droid Mini is expected to have a 4.3 inch display. There was a time when that was considered huge for a smartphone, but the times are a-changing.
It’s too bad Verizon’s pricing is pushing us to find a new carrier or I would really be into this phone.
Put it a slider keyboard on it and I’m in! Otherwise, I’ll continue to use my Droid 4 for local terminal and SSH tasks.
Too bad Google/Motrola has been removing keyboard shortcuts in the OS and apps with each update on my Droid 4.
