Here is a press shot of the drool-producing Motorola DROID Turbo (UPDATE: More pictures added)

On Sunday, a press photo of the Motorola DROID Turbo was leaked, showing off the black and red versions of the device. While earlier pictures revealed a Kevlar back for the phone, the new press shots show a textured finish. The images were tweeted by Evan Blass, who still uses the @evleaks username for his Twitter account and has apparently come out of retirement.
The latest speculation has the phone sporting a 5.2 inch glass with resolution of 1440 x 2560. A quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 CPU powers the device, which includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 21MP snapper, which includes 4K video capture, is featured on back. The battery, at 3900mAh, is a main feature of the DROID Turbo. Motorola says it will provide enough juice for two days of operation without requiring a recharge. And using the Turbo charger will allow you to get 8 hours of use from the phone, after only 15 minutes of charging.
While Motorola has recently become an afterthought in the Android handset market after manufacturers like Samsung, LG and HTC rolled out some powerful flagship devices earlier this year, it looks like the brand is back with a vengeance.

IMO, this looks same/better than the Nexus 6, has a smaller form factor, bigger battery, and offers physical buttons so part of the screen isn't wasted. Wish Google had decided not to go all "whale" with the Nexus 6. Or if they just had to go with a 6" phone, they should have figured out how to cram a K1 Denver in there :)

Looks more this device has capacitive buttons, not physical buttons. Physical buttons are like the power button, volume buttons, and on some devices the home button that actually move and some "click" when pressed.

I love the size. I love the camera. I love the battery. Do I have to say better than Nexus 6?

I wish the camera is on par with at least the iPhone 6 or the S5. It probably won't though so I wouldn't hold your breath.

Megapixel size means nothing when taking pictures. The things that matter are the sensor size and the software algorithms running the sensor. Motorola is known for lackluster photos due to their software. I would not hold my breath on this taking good pictures until the samples are released.

How fast is a quad-core "2.7 inch" Snapdragon 805? lol. It does look like an awesome phone. If it comes with the same features as the new Moto X, It might be worth a look at.

So... the snapdragon processor has grown to 2.7 inches? LOL. Silly typo PA :) Regardless, this is the exact specs im looking for. Its not nearly the looker that my N4 is (and really, what phone is?), but it doesnt matter since all of its good looks are kept in a case anyways.
