It’s been a while since Motorola pulled out a Droid from its magic hat of smartphones - but a press invite has confirmed the existence of the Motorola Droid Turbo.
And leaked specs suggest that it could be one of Motorola’s most powerful devices. The Droid Turbo is said to come with a 5.2-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) touch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset with a 2.65 GHz quad-core CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a massive 3900mAh battery.
But top of the spec sheet is the Droid Turbo's camera – it’s said to have a whopping 21 MP rear camera with dual-LED flash, meaning all your pictures should turn out pin-sharp.
The Droid Turbo is also set to be one tough cookie, reportedly packing a scratch-resistant "metallised glass fiber" body, along with a Gorilla Glass 3 screen and a Kevlar-reinforced back panel – perfect for those with butterfingers. It’s also reported that the Droid Turbo will be splash proof – meaning it’ll be able to survive up to 20 minutes of downpour.
Pleasing to the eye and touch
The Droid Turbo is expected to come with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box when it launches and will be available in a choice of black or red hues, with different textures to distinguish them apart.
Verizon has been sending out press invites for a Droid-branded handset reveal on 28 October, so it is almost set in stone that the device will be unveiled in the coming days - but whether the handset makes it to anywhere else in the world is still in question.
Stay tuned – we’ll update this space with more information should the smartphone make its way to our shores.
