At this point we already know a heck of a lot about the upcoming DROID Turbo from Motorola — including what it looks like and what it will be packing under its hood. And thanks to the latest leak, we know what kind of box it will be sold in, too.
It’s been a while since Motorola launched a new DROID handset for Verizon, but now that the company has released this year’s Moto flagships and built Google’s new Nexus 6, it seems it’s ready to show some more love to the popular DROID brand.
The new DROID Turbo is expected to make its official debut later this month, and just like all the other Motorola smartphones we’ve seen this year, it’s going to be impressive. In addition to a Quad HD display, we can expect Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera.
The DROID Turbo’s name isn’t based on its impressive processing speed, however, but rather its new rapid charging technology, which will reportedly provide around 8 hours of runtime out of a 15-minute charge, according to leaked Motorola documentation.
The latest DROID Turbo leak comes courtesy of MotoFirmware, which has published images of the handset’s sleek, all-black retail packaging. Inside the box is a new Motorola Turbo Charger, which is set to be included with every device as standard.
We still don’t have a release date for the DROID Turbo, but a countdown on Verizon’s website is set to hit zero on October 28 — so we should find out more about the device on that date.
