Now that Verizon and Motorola have unwrapped the DROID Turbo, we wanted to provide you with the official set of specs for this next-gen device.

As you are well aware, thanks to countless leaks over the past few months, this is indeed a powerful phone. It sports a next-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7GHz, 5.2-inch Quad HD display (2560×1440), 3GB RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal storage, 21MP camera, and a 3,900mAh battery that could last you up to two full days.

If you were looking for a DROID to help reignite the brand, this would be it.

A new DROID is here. The DROID Turbo by Motorola has been announced as the next DROID-branded exclusive on Verizon, a phone that should bring back some respect to a line of phones that at one time was thought to be the cream of the crop.

The DROID Turbo sports a 5.2-inch QHD display (2560×1440, 565ppi), 3GB RAM, 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 32GB/64GB storage, 3,900mAh battery, 21MP camera, and Android 4.4.4, all wrapped in a body that at its thickest, is just 10.6mm. You can see the full set of specs here(more…)

DROID Turbo Lands on Verizon’s Testman Page, Consider It Official

The DROID Turbo is now official. Well, Verizon still hasn’t announced the phone – they are expected to later today – but their own Testman site (staging area for new products) is already showing the device, with name, and a couple of specs. As you can see from the image above, the DROID Turbo will indeed support Turbo Charging, have 48-hour battery life (thought to be 3,900mAh), and run a 2.7GHz quad-core processor (Snapdragon 805). It also looks exactly like the device that has leaked left and right over the past couple of months.  (more…)

The DROID Turbo Launch is Getting Weird, Thanks to Gargoyles and James Franco

The DROID Turbo should be unveiled officially tomorrow. Until that happens, though, Verizon, Motorola and the @DroidLanding Twitter account are doing their best to get weird. In two teasers posted today for the phone, we didn’t learn anything new, only that James Franco is now a found-footage star who posts sponsored Tweets for the DROID brand and that the Turbo may have something to do with Gargoyles.

Yep.

Again, things are getting weird. Really weird.   (more…)

Here is the DROID TURBO in Its Retail Packaging, Turbo Charger Included

The DROID Turbo should be here next, at least according to a countdown currently running on Verizon’s DroidDoes.com site for all things DROID. To show you additional proof that the phone is days from an unveiling, we now have pictures of it in retail packaging, courtesy of MotoFirmware.com.
