In the past two weeks, numerous leaks have sprung up regarding the Motorola DROID Turbo smartphone. But just recently, fans of the device might have gotten an official look at the device's appearance at last.
It appears that Verizon Wireless has unwittingly tweeted an image of the yet-to-be-announced Motorola handset, and then deleted the tweet immediately thereafter. Not quick enough though. Various tech websites have already gotten hold of the image, which shows the rear side of a red-colored device branded with Motorola, DROID, and Verizon. Observers may note that the smartphone has a rather big camera housing. Although the tweet did not come with any description, the device shown on the picture seemed consistent with the one shown in previously leaked photos of the Motorola DROID Turbo that appeared last month.
Based on Verizon's tweeted image, the Motorola DROID Turbo looks like a cross between past Verizon DROID offerings and the latest Moto X, specifically with regards to the Kevlar-like look of the rear cover (reminiscent of old DROID models) and the familiar round, dimpled camera housing.
The Motorola DROID Turbo is rumored to have a 5.2-inch QHD display screen (with 1440 by 2560 p resolution and a 565 ppi density), complemented by a 21-megapixel rear camera. There is also talk that the device uses a fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, a 3,900 mAh battery, 3 gigabytes of random access memory, and has support for Motorola's Turbo Charger and 4G LTE connectivity.
Intentionally or not, both Motorola and Verizon Wireless are keeping mum about the Motorola DROID Turbo smartphone. Some reports have posited that the release date would be within October. But until there is more official information, Motorola fans will have to deal with rumors and leaks, like the recent Turbo user guide leak.
