The line of leaks surrounding the Motorola DROID TURBO from Verizon got a little longer today with another image and details about the device surfacing. You may recall the name of the new device is rooted in a desire for the smartphone to charge quickly and it appears Motorola may have succeeded. Despite having a large 3,900mAh battery that should last two days, users should be able to juice up the device for eight hours of use with only 15 minutes of charging.
Externally, the device appears to most closely resemble the DROID MAXX from last year. Red and black versions will be available and the back panel will have a distinctive pattern thanks to Kevlar reinforcement. Although not certified as water resistant, the DROID TURBO should be able to survive “everyday spills and 20 minutes in a downpour.”
Other hardware includes a 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 32GB of internal memory, 3GB of RAM, and a display that measures 5.2-inches with a quad HD resolution resulting in 565 ppi. The smartphone will come with a 21MP camera and will be capable of recording 4K video.
It appears the DROID TURBO will ship with Android KitKat 4.4, although sources did not specifically include operating system information in the leaked marketing materials. Despite being a Verizon exclusive, it appears buyers will have to wait 1-3 months for support for Wireless Calling 1.0 to be available on the device. The DROID TURBO is also slated to get a variety of Moto X type features like Moto Voice, Moto Actions and others along with some Droid model line specific apps and features like Zap Zone for local sharing.
The DROID TURBO is shaping up to be a high-end phone for Verizon and at least from a specs standpoint, able to hold its own against anything else on the market.
Anyone out there planning to check out the DROID TURBO when it is released later this month?
