DROID Turbo 2 clears certification as rumored launch looms

Verizon and Motorola blew us away last year with the DROID Turbo, packing some of the best smartphone specs we’d ever seen into a durable design. Now it looks like the companies are ready to reveal a sequel.

A new Motorola device was spotted passing through the Global Certification Forum this week under the model number XT1585. That’s the number already associated with the DROID Turbo 2, suggesting this really is the rumored handset. Unfortunately the filing doesn’t reveal much else, though we may already know a decent amount about the phone.

The DROID Turbo 2 is expected to offer a “shatterproof” 5.4-inch Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 processor, a 3760mAh battery, a 21-megapixel rear camera, 32GB/64GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. Rumor has it Motorola may even offer the new phone through its Moto Maker website, meaning tons of customization options instead of the usual three or four color schemes to choose from.

Verizon is allegedly set to reveal the shatterproof handset on Oct. 15, with sales kicking off later this month on the 29th. With just a week to go we still haven’t heard anything official, so it’s possible the launch could be pushed back slightly. Then again, with this latest certification it probably won’t be very long before the DROID Turbo 2 gets an official unveiling.
