DROID TURBO Will Have a 3,900mAh Battery

droid turbo

An image in a listing posted up at TaoBao, a Chinese shopping website like eBay or Amazon, just gave us the official size of the battery in the yet-be-announced-but-all-sorts-of-leaked DROID TURBO. We pointed out through an FCC listing that the battery in the device fell under model number EQ40, which we assumed meant it would be large like last year’s DROID MAXX, a device that used a 3,500mAh battery under the model number EU40.

Assuming this listing is correct and this is the EQ40 that will be featured in the DROID TURBO, you are looking at a device with a 3,900mAh battery. That, my friends, is huge. With a battery that size, you should have no trouble getting through two days of use. 

Couple that massive battery with its 5.2-inch UHD (or QHD?) display, 3GB RAM, 21MP camera, Moto suite of services, and (hopefully) mostly stock Android, and you may have the best DROID in years.

The DROID TURBO has not been announced yet, but sources of ours told us to expect it by October 30, with an announcement on the 28th or 29th.

    Only thing I still dislike on the previous Droid Maxx was the capacitive buttons. WHY?! Was hoping they’d be onscreen. 😛

    This is the reason motorola won’t be a leading manufacturer. They make a better phone for 1 carrier than they do for the rest the world. I will NEVER switch carriers to get a phone again. Especially not to Verizon

    If this has 64GB internal, and/or and SD slot, the Z3v will have some competition. Looking forward to seeing which one screws up the least.

    I don’t know whether to sell my M7 and buy this off-contract or wait until i’m eligible for an upgrade and get the M9…ffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

    HALP ME.

    I want to know more about those “microphones”. Are they stereo? Are they good enough to make decent live music recordings? Android still lags behind iOS in quality audio recording. I would think that the only reason to have plural “microphones” would be so we could make good stereo field recordings. I sure hope so.

      The DROID line of phones are famous for their extremely loud speakers and the quality of sound. I’ve personally went into the store this past may and checked every phones sound system and found the DROID line to be the loudest and the best sounding.

        Think he was taking about recordings, my guessing lectures which I have used my iPhone for which has superb quality. Getting the recording off the phone to share with classmates etc is another story

    No, no, no, no. This sucker’s electrical, but I need a nuclear reaction to- to generate the 1.21 gigawatts of electricity I need.

    I scroll for the gifs. Keep em coming

    I just want to know how one company can fail by only putting 2400mAh battery in one phone but yet put a breathtaking 3900mAh in another.

  • gallen408

    Almost worth grabbing to use on T-Mobile HSPA+.
    It’s literally everything I want except for an unlockable bootloader!
    For some reason I doubt there will be a Dev Edition though. :/

  • chickenfactory

    This phone is going to be thick to fit in the 3900mah battery. Yikes, but doesn’t matter to me (if it isn’t too thick). If I was on Verizon, I would…well, I should stop here. I would (almost) never go back to Verizon 😛

  • B Brad

    Why can’t motorola make something like this for the rest of us?

    Any chance a verizon phone would work on other networks?

  • jim

    knowing Moto the camera will still suck lol

    What’s so great about 3900 sealed battery, I’ll take removable 3200 battery over this any day, can swap at my will and don’t have to deal with battery degradation over the period..

      I’d personally take the 3900. If it lasts then I don’t need to change it. But to each their own.
