Motorola DROID Turbo leaks along with back cover from the Motorola Moto S phablet

Motorola DROID Turbo leaks along with back cover from the Motorola Moto S phablet
With the @DroidLanding Twitter site reactivated, there is plenty of speculation about a new Motorola DROID model  that could be on the way in time for the holiday shopping season. That phone is allegedly the Motorola DROID Turbo (XT1254), expected to be the DROID flagship for Verizon.

Rumors have the Turbo carrying a 5.2 inch 1440 x 2560 resolution screen, powered by a quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805. 3GB of RAM is expected inside with a 20MP camera in back and a 2MP snapper in front. The unit is expected to offer front-facing speakers, as well. And there is talk that the Turbo will offer fast recharging capabilities. According to the leak, the model looks more like the Motorola Moto X than past Motorola DROID handset, although it would appear that Kevlar will still be used by the manufacturer.

Another leak shows a rear cover, supposedly from the phablet-sized Motorola Moto S. This is the "Shamu" model which we've already sheepishly pointed out, sounds like a "whale" of a phone. There is some speculation that this model will feature a 5.9 inch screen with resolution of 1440 x 2560. A Snapdragon 805 is expected under the hood, with the Adreno 420 handling graphics. Back and front-facing cameras could weigh in at 13MP and 2.1MP respectively.

Sounds like Motorola is going to be busy pushing out some pretty powerful handsets soon.


Thanks for the tip!

With so many android phones coming out, its so hard to decide which to choose. But with apple, you don't need brain to decide which you'll get.

Sorry, over the last few days I've been on this site I've been learning from the masters... But I'm not quite there yet, I know I need more "i" prefixes and references to farmyard animals right? Oh and the one or two specs a certain device outdoes another one in meaning that it is the "clear winner" "what a fail" etc etc...

Buy why do you feel the need to create an account just to do this? The goal is to have good discussion about tech not to troll like the "masters" you want to be like.

I made an account to talk about various things (as an iPhone owner) but any discussion in any Apple related thread is filled with hate and vitriol from Android users. I thought I'd return the favour to help balance things but it seems it's only allowed one way right?

Don't troll, just comment the normal way. Rise above the childish bashing and hating.

No!!! Just comment the regular way. The only to kill a troll is to not feed it.

Just wait until your regular account is un-banned....

This is my only account. I've got nothing to hide, why would I? It's a site about mobile phones, if I get banned for anything it won't have any impact on my life.

Terrible. Close the account you just made and stop taking up space.

I'm very interested in the Droid Turbo. Can't wait to hear more about it.

The one on the right looks very similar to the Droid Maxx. I know because I have one. Unfortunately, you can't see the model number at the bottom of the phone on the right, even if you zoom in close enough.

I am pretty sure it is either the Maxx or Ultra if the Turbo has a 5.2 inch screen and the other phone next to it has a similar form factor

Does this mean you have no complaints about these upcoming devices, if their specs are accurate?

26. Mxyzptlk unregistered

That means it's what the X should have been

So when the price is $699 and you say it's a fail phone, what am I suppose to believe is the truth?

Okay, design and engineering guru.
