DROID Turbo 2 to support Moto Maker, launch in October

Even with the Moto X Pure Edition and second generation Moto 360 on the market, Motorola hasn’t revealed all of its tricks. Several new details about the DROID Turbo 2 have leaked, via Phandroid, confirming some key specs and—yep, you guessed it—Moto Maker is joining the party this year.

We’ve already seen a bunch of the Turbo 2’s specs leak before, but this new report apparently confirms a few of the device’s biggest features. For one, the handset will indeed sport a “shatterproof” 5.4-inch Quad HD display, along with a Snapdragon 810 processor; Motorola’s most powerful flagship, the Moto X Pure Edition, comes with a Snapdragon 808 chip.

Meanwhile, we’re expecting 32GB and 64GB storage options, 3GB of RAM, a 21-megapixel camera and a massive 3760mAh battery. One of our biggest gripes with the new Moto X was that its battery was just OK; we should have no such issues with the Turbo 2.

Here’s where it gets really interesting. In addition to supporting Moto Maker, Motorola will reportedly offer buyers a free one-time design swap within the first two years of purchase. So if you don’t love the combo you got, you can re-do the Moto Maker process for something completely different (though I’m sure with a few limitations).

The DROID Turbo 2 is apparently going to be announced on Oct. 15, with a release to follow on Oct. 29. I’d say the Turbo 2 is shaping up to be a monster phone when it hits, though with those kind of specs, you can bet it will be much more than the $400 Moto X Pure Edition.
