The Motorola Droid Turbo was mentioned for the first time in August, only it was referred to as Quark or XT1254. Back then details were scarce, to say the least, but as time went by more information became available and a few days ago we got tipped of a new report revealing quite a lot about the new Droid device. Fast forward to today and we got pictures to go with rumored specs as the Droid Turbo shows off in all its glory in live photos.
Motorola Droid Turbo Pictures Leak Out
The images posted on Google+ by HeloMotoHK show the back of the Motorola Droid Turbo in great detail and also give us a glimpse on the back panel. Even if the Droid logo wasn’t present, we still wouldn’t have a hard time guessing what phone it is, since Motorola decided to stick to the characteristic Droid design language, for the most part anyway. It’s not identical to the Droids we know, though, as Motorola also added a few refreshing touches.
The Droid Turbo still has textured back most likely made of Kevlar, but the shape of the phone brings to mind the new Moto X. Compared to last year’s model, the Turbo appears to have a more rounded body with curved back. Motorola logo is now right below the camera, while Droid branding is at the very bottom. The photo of the front is blurry but clear enough to reveal capacitive keys.
Earlier rumors mentioned a 4.6-inch screen with 1440 x 2560 resolution, but now it looks like the Turbo will come with a much bigger 5.2-inch display. The QHD screen clearly hints at premium handset and the rest of rumored specs seems to confirm that. The phone is expected to pack a 2.65GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 20-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing shooter as well as dual LED flash, front-facing speakers and, as teased by Motorola itself, fast charging technology.
Like other members of the Droid family, the Turbo will be headed to Verizon and according to several reports, it will be the only Droid device that Motorola will make this year. It’s unclear when exactly the Turbo will hit the stores, but October release seems pretty feasible.
