Official Motorola DROID Turbo photo apparently posted by DroidLanding
@DroidLanding, an official Twitter account used to tease upcoming launches, just revealed a photo of an unannounced smartphone. Almost certainly, this is the Motorola DROID Turbo that we’ve been hearing about in the last few months.

The official image shows the handset’s back, pretty much confirming that this previously leaked photo was not a fake. As you can see, this is a red DROID Turbo, which will likely be released alongside a black version.

Just yesterday, we told you that the DROID Turbo should come with a massive 3900 mAh battery that could be fully charged in 3 hours. Other expected features include: a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels and a 565 ppi density, quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.7 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, and a 20.7 MP rear camera with dual LED flash.

It’s said that Motorola and Verizon plan to announced the DROID Turbo at the end of this month. Until then, take a look at the photo posted today by DroidLanding, plus some images extracted from the upcoming smartphone’s User Guide:

Update: @DroidLanding deleted its tweet. No worries, we still have the photo!

That red looks crazy! I would get the black instead though. So much to choose from. Note 4 or Nexus 6 or Droid Turbo.

It's going to be a tough decision. I wish i could merge all the phones into one. lolololol. One super phone that destroys them all!!!! Thanks for the suggestion though. I think i will wait obviously for the official unvielings and the numerous unboxing and usage videos that will be all over youtube.

Then that ONE Phone should have
1) LG's or Samsung's display.
2) Samsung's Camera with Sony Sensors
3) HTC Boom Speakers
4) Motorola's Custom Processor along with all other goodies.
5) HTC or Sony's Design
6) Moto Maker Customization
and finally
7) Google's Pure Android...

My Precioooooouuuuuuus....................

Sigh.........if only such a phone existed with everything listed here. Probably would cost $1000, but i think that would be worth it.

How can it be a hard decision if Samsung is giving you 200 dollars for any working phone on a trade in

It's not really about the money. That is a good deal. I'm not sold on TouchWiz. I like the near stock experience of moto phones and Nexus...how can you go wrong? I will wait for video reviews of real world usage before buying.

True. Always an option to do that. I went to Best Buy and toyed around with the Note 4 and the Note Edge. The Edge is a decent phone. I was pleasantly surprised by it. The 4 of course was also great in my opinion. The S Pen was very accurate. Not sure how often i would use it though.

I hate it that it doesn't have on screen nav keys. WHO does that? (except the rebellious Samsung)

I don't seem to get the answer to this crucial question: is it a Verizon exclusive or is it coming to Europe also?

Seems to be a Verizon exclusive.

Well, there was an FCC filing for a GSM version of this phone, so there's some hope for you. It might not have the same colors or design though.

Saw that too, but everyone seems to be ignoring it for some reason. It was identical to this phone but with GSM bands in it. IIRC, it's rumored to be called the Moto Maxx, a name which Motorola filed for trademark a few months back. If so it'd be similar to how they released the Motorola Milestone as a GSM variant to Verizon's OG Motorola Droid. They were essentially the same phone except for the cellular bands they supported.

True. It would certainly stifle any critics who feel the Moto X with its pedestrian Snapdragon 801 and piddly 1080 screen aren't flagship enough.

The quality of the Moto X screen is more important than the resolution. It's just a poor quality screen on a phone that has a Motorola camera (meh) and pedestrian battery life.

I wonder who's supplying Moto their AMOLED screens. I thought it was Samsung, but by the numbers, the 1080 screen on the S5 is far superior to the X. Both maximum and minimum brightness pale in comparison.

As far as I know, anyone other than Samsung is using an Amoled screen, where Samsung is keeping their Super Amoled screen for themselves.

That would be awesome, it really looks like the almost perfect smartphone to me.

Specwise, its exactly what I'm looking for. Sightly bigger screen than my N4 without getting into phablet territory, nice big camera, and even bigger battery. If/when they launch a "with google" version of this phone I'd totally buy it.

Were I in the market this year, this is the phone I would buy. I was iffy before because QHD is a waste at 5.2", but looking at what Samsung was able to pull out of the Note 4, and with that humongous battery, this looks damn good.
