Everything suggests that Motorola in partnership with Verizon are on the point of releasing the Droid Turbo soon. The device has been the subject of countless rumors. Just last week we got the leak concerning picks of the back side of the device’s body, then the phone occurred in the FCC documentation and just right now the complete list of its tech parameters has leaked out via GFXBench.
Motorola Droid Turbo specs revealed
According to what we see in the GFXBench specs listing, the Motorola Droid Turbo appears to be a pretty beasty device. It will feature a large 5.2-inch full HD touch screen with the resolution of 2560x1440p. Going deeper, the Droid Turbo will be powered by a Qualcomm quad-core 2.65GHz Snapdragon 805 processor supported by the Adreno 420 GPU. There will probably be also a quite massive amount of free space under the hood, since the phone is reported to house 32GB of the built-in storage (though the device spotted in the benchmark has something of 21GB of internal storage).
Speaking of the optics, the new Droid Turbo is said to go on sale with a high-quality 19-megapixel rear camera with Sony-made sensor which is accompanied by a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. Furthermore, the device is said to run Android 4.4.4 out of box and support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS. Other additional functions include for instance, a gyroscope and a compass. Some of us will be surely delighted to see some of these specs in the recently unveiled Moto X.
Although the benchmark doesn’t mention anything about the Droid Turbo’s battery capacity, thanks to information found in the device’s FCC documentation, we can be pretty certain that the phone will house a battery similar to what we got in the Droid Maxx, perhaps it will support Motorola’s Turbo Charger or even wireless charging.
In terms of design the new Droid Turbo is going to be reportedly a bit larger device than the Moto X 2014, due to its powerful battery and capacitive navigation buttons. Additionally, it will feature a KEVLAR pattern on its back. The premium look and high-quality tech parameters will make the phone stand out from the crowd, and perhaps the fact that the Droid Turbo will be an exclusive offer of Verizon will help the carrier to gain masses of new customers.
The Droid lineup has recently passed into oblivion. Some time ago, we got even ten devices of this lineup per year, then the number decreased to only three. Last members of the Droid family, the Droid Ultra, Mini and Max were launched in July 2013, and now after more than a year without the new Droid phone, we are close to get the new Droid Turbo. Will the smartphone save the almost forgotten line of smartphones from extinction?
At this point, we sadly know nothing more about the device. Its launch date and availability are still something of a mystery, though taking into account all the leaks that popped the net lately, the Droid Turbo is highly probable to debut by the end of this year.
