droid turbo red

Thanks to @DroidLanding, the official Droid teaser account, we now have an official picture of the DROID TURBO. The picture was Tweeted with no comment or name attached, but you and I know what it is. 

From what we have gathered so far, the DROID TURBO will sport a 5.2-inch “Ultra” HD display, 3,900mAh battery, wireless charging, 21MP Camera, 3GB RAM, and Snapdragon 805 processor. This might very well be the first stand-out, top tier DROID device we have seen in years.

Sources of ours told us to expect the phone on October 30.

Update:  Annnnnnd the Tweet has been deleted.

    OMG OMG OMG!!! The countdown has began!!! The DROID Does counter will run down till the 28th, which is when I’m guessing it will be revealed and announced!! Took this screen shot at roughly 1:25 a.m EST. directly from the VZW site. OK i can’t sit still! Too dang exited y’all! This can’t happen fast enough for me!!

    Great phone, awful name

  • Trueblue711

    I wonder how the camera quality is going to be. Megapixels aren’t everything, and one of the things keeping me on Samsung’s Galaxy phones is the superb camera that even bests the iPhone.

  • TheRobotCow

    Hmmm….. If this device is that great i know what i’m getting next and maybe not stay with iOS lol.

  • Katherine

    The features are really impressive like its 5.2 inch screen, 21MP Camera, 3900mAh battery that is compatible with wireless car charger with suction mount and air vent mount.

    is it me or does verizons logo just cheapen every single phone they put it on?

  • Dave

    Anybody suspect this will be available with MotoMaker?

  • SickPndulm

    was gonna get the note 4 but this might be my next hotness

  • Cam Mulltoh

    Specs look good, but that name…ugh. “TURBO”. It’s terrible. Sounds so 1980s.

    • endlessglory

      What’s wrong with the ’80s? Favorite decade. They should call it the reflexxxx! Jk. They named it bc of fast charging niche.

  • coolsilver

    Verizon + Capacitive Keys = Rather have same phone as Nexus 6

  • Noah Foreman

    First thought: yep, I’ll be getting it in black.

  • enyibinakata

    This is utter madness !

  • Rob

    Wow that thing is ugly. So, the design of the droid line is stuck in 2011…

  • endlessglory

    Fast charge 8 hours of use in 15 minutes

    I love the specs, I love Moto and their software, but something is just missing for me. The capacitive buttons aren’t that big a deal, though I prefer on screen. Maybe it’s the look, or lack of SD storage. I don’t know but even with the specs, a Z3 in a Z2 body still seems more appealing to me (even though the thought of them doing that is somewhat by itself cringe worthy) . Maybe I’m nuts, I don’t know…..

    • guesswhat

      Yes you are nuts

      • Vanquishgc

        Hey I’m willing to admit it. Believe me I’m asking myself why on earth would make a choice like that? I guess a combination of the overall look of the phone, speakers, being somewhat of a Sony loyalist, plus the fact that being on Verizon, I’ve never had a chance to own one of their phones, while I’ve had 4 Moto models. The only thing that could change things big time is if the Nexus somehow made to Verizon. In other words, the sun has a better chance of exploding.

    Will be a great Halloween! Hope best buy has it for mail order asap!

    So, after the leaked image of the back a week ago I expected this to be super ugly. I am presently surprised. Looks like a small metal band around the out side. I think it looks sexy

  • Richie Sullivan

    not sure i want a white faced phone, again.

  • Aaron

    nah….I’m still waiting for the next gen of droid/milestone…give me a qwerty version of this turbo

    • Christi Phillips Lockridge

      There were rumors of a DROID 5 with physical qwerty

  • endlessglory

    3900mah? Will it fit inside this sexy thing? I find it hard to believe.

  • endlessglory

    Pretty backside, how about the face? Is there a link somewhere?

  • TC Infantino

    So damn sexy!

  • chris125

    I’m not usually a fan of red phones, but that looks really good. Hopefully the camera is also improved.

    • Tim Glaraton

      21 megapixels baby

      • Godzilla

        And the same sensor that is being used in the X. Which means mediocre performance.

        • droider

          how do you kno that. your just assuming

          • Bionic

            Per Sarge

  • Elwin Gill

    That is sexy! Can’t wait!

  • NexusMan

    Can we talk about how think it looks too?

  • ChalonR

    Could this page behave any more poorly? Jeezus, once it’s open for a little bit it’s freezing up in both Chrome and FF.
