Motorola Droid Ultra Preview

The Motorola Droid Ultra is an mid-tier Android smartphone that works on the Verizon cellular network. It boasts a large 5.0-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, but at a 1280 x 720 resolution, the 294 pixel-per-inch density is a little low. The Droid Ultra also features a 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB RAM, 4G LTE data speeds, and 16GB of internal storage (but you can add more via the microSD card slot).

The Droid Ultra's camera is akin to an entry-to-mid level point-and-shoot digicam. The 10MP CMOS image sensor can record Full HD 1080p videos. It also has an f/2.4 aperture, touch focus, autofocus, and LED flash, geotagging (thanks to built-in GPS), and face detection. In terms of connectivity, there is also Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, and even an FM Radio.
