If the leaked specs are legit, it does seem that Motorola is putting its resources into the Motorola Moto X and on the non-QWERTY members of the DROID line. Yes, the screen gets a boost from 4 inches with a 540 x 960 resolution (qHD) to a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 720 x 1280. But under the hood is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus with the Adreno 255 GPU. Perhaps most disappointing is the 1GB of RAM on board, which even the $250 Sony Xperia M offers. And there is 16GB of native storage inside with a microSD slot available.
The Motorola DROID 5 will support wireless charging and will be NFC enabled, according to the leak. But in another piece of disappointing news, unlike the splash-proof Motorola DROID 4, the next iteration of the model will not be water or dust resistant.
We don't know when this might be introduced or launched, but judging from the pictures, it looks like the Motorola DROID 5 is ready to go at a moment's notice. And by the way, the phone to the left of the new DROID in the first slide below is none other than the Motorola PHOTON Q 4G LTE.
