While it appears that the Moto Z Force may have become the spiritual sequel to last year's Motorola DROID Turbo 2, concept maker Toooajk has come through with some interesting concept illustrations for a DROID Turbo 3. Needless to add that should said device make an appearance in the future, we probably wouldn't complain if it looked like these renders.
Motorola DROID Turbo 2 stacked favorably up against the majority of 2015's flagship smartphones. Sure, the large display isn't as bright as it ought to be, and as a Verizon exclusive, you get Big Red's liberal dose of bloatware. But aside from the niggling issues, it's a very strong all-round smartphone.With a strong battery life, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 and a healthy 3 gigs of RAM, the
The Turbo 3 — in Toooajk's eyes — would provide a rich ensemble of high-end hardware within an elegant, all-metal design. Per the accompanying specs, users would get a 5.2-inch QHD display, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 821 SoC, a whopping 6 gigs of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There'd also be USB Type-C and a 2930 mAh battery with 'Super Fast Turbo' charging, along with a rear fingerprint sensor. Selfie lovers would get an 8-megapixel front shooter, whilst the rear would be adorned with a 16-megapixel Sony IMX298 complete with Hasselblad branding.
The joy of concepts is that they don't necessarily have to be practical, and as much can be said for this particular effort. Apparently, this $650 handset — with all of those aforementioned bells and whistles — would be crafted into a profile just 5.2 millimeters thin. With MotoMod support and Motorola's ShatterShield tech to boot, it seems a flagship lover's dream handset. Shame, then, that it's in no way real.
