Verizon has officially announced one of the latest additions to its DROID line. It’s the Motorola DROID Ultra, and unlike what our source told us before, this thing will be available with full red glossy Kevlar back-coating for all customers.

The 5-inch device features Motorola’s 1.7GHz “X8 computing system” which gives us two application processing cores, 4 graphics processing cores, a contextual computing core and a natural language processor core (whatever that means). It’s all said to come together to create a faster mobile computing experience.

Other specs include 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, Motorola’s 10 megapixel RGBC camera sensor, Android 4.2, LTE, WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0, aGPS and more.

That aside, let’s jump right into some of the new software features being touted:

  • “Touchless control” for eyes-free / hands-free operation of the device
  • “Active Display” will only light up a certain portion of the screen to show advanced notifications while the device is sleeping
  • Quick photo capture
  • DROID Zap, a feature to share photos to anyone with a DROID within 300 feet using a two-finger swipe gesture

The Kevlar pattern has a sort of 3-dimensional effect to it. The device will be available August 20th for $200. Those interest can pre-order starting today over at Verizon’s website.
