Is it a 1080p screen?

bergeronjc says:

Found it on GSM Arena. It is only 720. Why did they go with such a low pixel density? If someone in the store puts it next to a One or a S4 they will immediately forget about the Droid Ultra.

Linebarrel86 says:

Doubt it.

To be honest I can hardly tell the difference between the S3 and S4 screen.

Smaller screen density means smaller battery with same life.

Smaller battery means smaller body. Honestly I'd sacrifice screen resolution for battery life, I have am S3 and, while a 1920x1080 screen would be nice, I can barely tell it apart from a 1280x720 screen.

I think they should split the difference, just go with 1600x900 :)

With 16GB of storage, I sure hope it's got an SD card slot.

Note to Editor:
Official Motorola specs say 32GB built-in to Maxx.

What's the screen size?

Ry says:

5" Super AMOLED, 720x1280

popezaphod says:

How quickly will Cyanogen be available for it? :P

RaiderWill says:

Great Joke!
Cause.. We just know the Master's (Moto & Verizon) would NEVER allow Unlocked Bootloaders on their Mainstream Devices.. Oh My God! That would be considered a Blasphemous Act!

Do we know yet whether this will be running Vanilla Android, or at least something very close to it?

Ry says:

Check the Hands-On posts.

In the hands on it looked verrryyy close to stock.

What you are also seeing here friends are the same specs that will be in the Google X phone.

Ry says:

The MOTO X will likely have a screen smaller than the 5" you see here on the ULTRA and MAXX.

Google's definitely trying to end the specs race. 720p screen because you literally can't tell unless you do a side by side. Dual core apps processor because Android runs fine on two cores. No SD card slot because Apple sells millions of phones without them. I think this a great move. Stoked to order my Ultra on the 25th.

That seems like really weak reasoning... Apple sells millions??? They also sell millions of phones with a 4 inch screen and a proprietary connector....they also sell millions of phones with a closed OS that has no widgets and lacks the ability to use third-party keyboards (don't make me keep going). Apple does it is exactly NOT the reason to do something that TAKES AWAY functionality. The whole point of Android is that it is NOT Apple or iOS.

Furthermore, the best selling Android phone (that sells in the millions) in the US DOES have an sd card slot and a removable battery.....and a 1080p screen and a quad core processor.

You may have a point about ending the spec race, but going BACKWARDS is not the way to do that.

I totally agree! If you are pushing technology then PUSH! 1080 screens are key to future products and apps. Sd card slots don't stop the use of cloud storage, it enhances the user experience. I have a Nexus 4 for the obvious reason of breaking my privious phone on a week when nothing better was avialable! I feel so robbed of the Google/Motorola merger. They aren't even using Android 4.3! they gave that away to Samsung for the Google version of the S$. I thought Nexus phones got updates first?

My point is that none of it matters. The iPhone and Windows Phone 8 run beautifully on dual core. My 8X runs circles around my RAZR M. Same RAM and processor. Specs are important but goodness gracious. Optimization and a well designed OS are important as well.

WELL SAID TOES!

Another piece of shit, 16gb internal memory. That leaves the user with a total of about 10 or 11gb of memory. How the fuck can anyone call this a good phone??? I am getting very pissed off at just about every so called Android high end device, they have no memory that means no balls. You can keep this piece of shit. The new iphone is coming out with an option to buy a device with 128gb of int memory. What is the problem with Android, why are they so negative about internal memory. The size of the new apps and games are huge. Just completely bull shit.
