Motorola is getting ready to launch two new smartphones for Verizon. The Motorola XT1080 and XT1030 have just passed through the FCC, which are believed to possibly be the Moto X and DROID RAZR Ultra.

Things have been quiet for Motorola when it comes to bringing new smartphones to the market. The last major devices the company launched were the DROID RAZR AND DROID RAZR MAXX HD in October 2012. Things appear to be picking up for Motorola as it has just kicked off a new ad campaign centered on the Moto X and two new smartphones have just passed through the FCC.

The FCC filing lists the smartphones as the Motorola XT1080 and XT1030 and both devices are headed to Verizon. The smartphones are believed to be the Moto X and DROID RAZR Ultra. The FCC filing reveals that both smartphones include a 4G LTE radio that works on bands 4 and 13, which are the bands Verizon's 4G network use. The devices also include Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.

During the AllThingsD conference in May, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside confirmed the Moto X and said it would be available later this summer. He also revealed that the Moto X would be one of a handful of devices Motorola would release from now through October.

Just a few months ago Google confirmed that when it acquired Motorola it also acquired a pipeline of products Motorola already had in development. It is believed that the XT1030 is one of those smartphones and is likely to be the DROID RAZR Ultra. Verizon usually keeps its smartphones in a yearly rotation and it's about time for the RAZR series to see an update.

For now, we'll have to wait to see what these actual smartphones will turn out to be, but with the Moto X expected to be released later this summer, we don't have too long a wait.
