A placeholder page hosted by Motorola touts the Droid Ultra's body as thin and tough.

Motorola's upcoming Droid Ultra will be thin and still as "tough as steel." At least, that's how the company is teasing it.

A page on Motorola's Web site displays a small gray box with a tidbit of promotional copy for the Droid Ultra: "Available in a bunch of glossy colors, this high-grade DuPont Kevlar body proves you can be even thinner and still be tough as steel."

The rest of the page is filled with lots of technical specs. But as noticed by blog site Droid Life, the specs are the exact same ones for Motorola's Droid Razr M . So unless the Droid Ultra will be identical to the Razr M, which wouldn't make a whole lot of sense, those specs are likely just filling up space until the real ones arrive.

Little is known about the Droid Ultra at this point. However, Twitter account @evleaks and Droid Life have both picked up tips about a new Motorola Ultra lineup that will be carried by Verizon Wireless in the coming months. Beyond the Droid Ultra, also reportedly in the works are a Droid Ultra Maxx, Droid Razr Ultra, Droid Razr M Ultra, and Droid Ultra Mini.
