It was only this morning we showed you guys a glimpse at the front of the upcoming Motorola DROID Maxx for Verizon Wireless, and now @evleaks is back with its slimmer sibling, the Motorola DROID Ultra. The sequel to last year’s Motorola Droid Razr, the Droid Ultra (XT1080) features a super slim frame, the trademark carbon fiber looking backplate, and thankfully, Verizon branding only on the back of the device (we’re looking at you, Verizon Galaxy Note 2).

While not many of the device’s specs have been confirmed, Motorola’s alleged new camera tech will be a big focus for the Ultra. Using a 10MP RBGC sensor, that extra “C” is said to help the Ultra handle white balance and exposure more efficiently, for more dynamic and quicker shots. Of course, we’ve heard promises like these before and so please understand if we remain… skeptical.

For those still interested in the Moto X, this same camera tech is rumored to be coming inside that device as well, but if those early leaked test shots of the camera’s jpegs were any indication, doesn’t appear to help much.

We expect to learn more about the Motorola Droid Ultra, Motorola Droid Maxx, and the Motorola DROID Mini during Motorola’s unveiling event, rumored to take place on July 11th, just don’t expect the Moto X to make an appearance.
