Motorola has had its big roll out of the year when it launched the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360, but the company is not quite finished yet. The US brand that has recently been sold to Lenovo from Google has two more handsets set to launch before the end of the year, although the company will be mostly handing the reigns to other companies. We already know plenty the Google Nexus 6, but today we can see more about the Motorola made Verizon DROID series.The latest handset in that range is the upcoming DROID Turbo has shown up online in official detail thanks to a leaked user-guide PDF. We get a good look at the design of the device and see that while it is based on the new Moto X, there is plenty of difference between the two handsets, with the DROID coming with a typically ruggedized aesthetic. The device gets a 5.2-inch qHD, with buttons set below the screen (different from the Moto X), an intriguing massive 21 megapixel rear camera, and wireless QI charging capabilities. If the DROID Turbo does mimic the Moto X spec for spec, then it will have a 5.2-inch AMOLED 1080p full HD display, a 13 megapixel rear camera with 4x zoom and a flash ring around the lens, a 2.5GHz quad-core CPU Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, an Adreno 330 578MHz GPU and 2GB of RAM. It will be available in 16GB and 32GB storage versions, a splash proof coating (not waterproof), and for all the purists out there Android 4.4 KitKat stock. The device is due to land this month and will be a Verizon exclusive. source: 9to5Google
