After months of speculation, the DROID brand lives. The Droid Turbo, a Verizon Wireless exlcusive smartphone coming out October 30th for $199.99 on contract (32GB model) or $249.99 on contract (64GB model). The 5.2-inch display reamins, but is instead at an insane qHD resolution (four times the HD res on the new Moto X).
There’s a more powerful Snapdragon 805 processor, more RAM (3GB), a larger 3,900mAh battery (48 hours of use between charges), and a higher-resolution 21-megapixel camera — also included is 8 hours of battery life on just 15 minutes of charge.
Included at launch is Android 4.4 KitKat will be upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop, after it is released. Including all the Moto X features — voice control, Moto Display, launching the camera via a twist gesture of the wrist.
Design of the device itself is drastically changed; it’s not as beautiful. Verizon offers a few colors choices: metallic black, metallic red, or what Verizon calls a “ballistic” black (with textured back).
