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!
