After months of waiting, Motorola and Verizon have announced the Droid Turbo smartphone. The newly launched Motorola Droid Turbo is official, featuring a 5.2-inch QHD display and a Snapdragon 805 chipset. The device is now available for pre-order in the U.S.
Motorola's latest flagship handset, the Droid Turbo, have been leaked multiple times ahead of its official unveiling. Just as all leaks, images and rumors have suggested, the Motorola-made Droid Turbo is a supersized Moto X (2014), with an all-together different branding.
In fact the Motorola Droid Turbo is similar to the new Moto X (2014), in respect of software, but everything else has been revamped.
Sporting a 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display, the new phone can easily triumph the Apple iPhone 6 or the Galaxy S5 for that matter. The display has the highest pixels density seen on any phone to date.
Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, paired with 3GB of RAM, either 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage and microSD card support.
The forward looking handset also comes with a 21-megapixel camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter. Motorola has yet to reveal if the phone's rear-facing camera supports Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The rear-facing camera is capable enough of recording 4K videos.
What's unique about the Droid Turbo is the fitted massive battery. There's a whooping 3,900mAh battery that's pretty large. At the same time, the battery does support wireless charging.
In addition to that, the Motorola Droid Turbo comes in two finishes - fibreglass and nylon. Moreover, the Droid Turbo runs on Android 4.4 (KitKat), though the company does promise an upgrade to the latest Android release.
Price and Availability
Motorola Droid Turbo will go on sale in the U.S, starting October 30, at $199 (Rs. 12,220) and $249 (Rs. 15,189) for 32 and 64GB models respectively, both on two year contracts. The Droid Turbo is exclusive to Verizon.
