What can be dubbed as the most anticipated smartphone of the final quarter of year 2014 so far, Motorola has formally announced the DROID Turbo exclusively for Verizon Wireless in the USA. There were several noises coming out post the launch of the device, that the device is so well spec’d and made, that it should have what Motorola should have considered while making the Nexus 6 and not what they ended up going with. The DROID Turbo takes a few cues from the Droid Razr which in a way marked the comeback of Motorola as a major OEM after its struggles.
The DROID Turbo comes with a 5.2 inch Quad HD AMOLED display which is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. It is powered by a Snapdragon 805 SoC clocked at 2.7 GHz and has a 21 MP rear camera. The front facing camera is a 2 MP unit, while the RAM is 3 GB and you can pick between the 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. The USP of the phone is its 3900 mAh battery, which promises the device will remain alive for at least 48 hours under moderate usage. The phone also ships with a Turbo Charger, that class to charge the phone enough in 15 minutes, to give you about 8 hours of usage.
There are several awesome back cover variants in which the device is available, including: black Ballistic Nylon, aluminum variant and metallic Red. There is also a Metallic Black color variants with GFRP and aluminum and Dupont Kevlar. The Turbos is also water resistant, so you should have no issue taking it out on a wet cold evening. The phone will be available from October 30th either on a contracted price starting at $199.99 or an unsubsidised price of $599.99
