There have been rumors that Motorola is getting ready to launch a new powerful handset for Verizon Wireless and its USP will be its quick-charging battery. The device will be called Motorola Droid Turbo and is supposed to be launched next month.
We have now got the first leaked picture of the device. HelloMotoHK has posted images of the backside of a Moto handset on its Facebook page which is supposedly the Droid Turbo. The handset has Motorola’s typical woven surface with the camera on the upper side and dual LED flash one on each side of the camera. At the bottom is the Droid logo with the Verizon logo just above it. Verizon wireless has been the exclusive supplier of Motorola’s Droid phones in the US.
Rumored specs of the Droid Turbo are quite impressive and include a 5.2 inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 20MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing one. The device is expected to have front-facing speakers and will offer fast battery charging. The leak also suggests that the new Droid Turbo will resemble Motorola’s Moto X rather than the previous Motorola Droid handset.
There is another leaked image that shows the back panel supposedly that of Motorola’s Moto S. Looks like it will be a phablet because it seems much bigger compared to the 5.2-inch Moto X Gen 2 beside it, but the design of the back panel looks similar in both the phones. This Moto S could be the big 5.9-inch“Shamu” smartphone that Motorola was supposed to be working on for Google as its Nexus 6.
Of course the two smartphones might be entirely different but if this is the Moto S, it can’t be the next Nexus. There is also a possibility that the images are fake.
Let us see how things turn out. Stay tuned…..
