Motorola Toys with Kevlar on Upcoming Droid Ultra

Motorola and sleek mobile phone designs go a long way back, and the company is never shy of experimenting with cutting-edge materials. Take for instance, the upcoming Droid Ultra, which has a product-page of its own, ahead of its launch. Motorola will take advantage of the rigidity that Kevlar (yes, the same Kevlar that goes into making bulletproof vests) bring to the table, in achieving slimmer, yet rugged body panels. DuPont's revolutionary material, Kevlar, will give the Droid Ultra panels that can be thinner than ABS, yet "tough as steel." The material shouldn't come in the way of aesthetics, either, as the company promises the device will be available in "a bunch of glossy colors."

The incomplete product page revealed a few specs, including dimensions of 60.9(x) 122.5(y) 8.3 (z) mm, and 126 g weight. It features a 4.3-inch qHD (960 x 540 pixels) screen, a body with an diamond-cut aluminum frame, Corning Gorilla Glass 2 front panel, and a Kevlar back-panel. In the imaging department, you can expect an 8-megapixel shooter. Under the hood are an unknown 1.50 GHz dual-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage, and Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean."
