A few weeks ago Verizon’s all new Droid lineup was announced, the smartphones are manufactured by Motorola and are now exclusive to the Big Red. Verizon said that it would release both devices on August 20th. It appears that there is a delay in the release of both Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx smartphones. The carrier’s website indicates that the smartphones will be shipped “by August 27th.” Verizon hasn’t officially confirmed the reason behind this apparent one week delay.
The new Droid lineup actually has three models, the Droid Ultra Mini being the entry level offering. Verizon said that it would be released on August 29th and right now there appears to be no delay. As previously mentioned, it is not immediately clear what’s causing the delay for Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx. Verizon is expected to launch a couple of other premium Android smartphones in the last few days of August. The Verizon Moto X is expected to be released on or shortly after August 23rd, the same goes for HTC One as well. No official release date has been provided as yet for these two smartphones, so it can’t be said right now if a similar delay will be experienced by HTC One and Moto X on Verizon. If and when Verizon makes an official statement regarding this, we’ll update you right away.
