Motorola Droid Turbo 2 to be released in October?
This year, Motorola already announced several interesting smartphones (including the Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and the third generation Moto G), but it's still got at least one new handset to unveil. We're talking about the Moto X Force, which, according to a report from earlier today, should be launched in the US as the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, exclusively via Verizon Wireless.

@upleaks (which published what seems to be the first Droid Turbo 2 render), has it that the new smartphone could be released next month, in October. This could be true, since the original Droid Turbo was also launched in October (last year). As for the Moto X Force, this is expected to be available starting December - at least in Europe and China. It's said that the Moto X Force will cost around $620.

Apparently, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is a bit larger than the original Droid Turbo, thank to the fact that it allegedly sports a 5.4-inch Quad HD display (instead of the 5.2-inch Quad HD screen of the older handset). The new Droid might also feature an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, a 21 MP rear camera, 3 GB of RAM, a 3760 mAh battery, and 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory (depending on model).

You can check out the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and the Moto X Force (while noticing the similarities between them) in the slideshow below.

Now if you can bring those models to more countries. Then that would be really sweet.

In the US? Not happening. Not as long as Verizon has its Droid contract with Motorola.

The front looks butt ugly though. Too bad...

It's not as bad in black. Not a fan of white phones, all those sensors and cameras stand out.

Nothing tops placing it on the home button of the Note 2 and S3 mini.

I'll keep my nice "cool to the touch" 805 powered Droid Turbo instead of the "let's heat'em up" 810 powered Droid Turbo 2, thank you. Hotter running, smaller battery; don't see the advantage to upgrade.

This phone is only good on Verizon, The Moto X Pure Edition works on all US carriers and it's just been confirmed that it is compatible with Google's Project Fi, should Google open up their service to more than just Nexus devices. If that happens then that's going to make the phone so much more awesome than other flagships. Please Google, make it happen!
