We got a bit of an official look at the upcoming DROID Turbo this week when a user guide PDF from Verizon leaked, showing the specs and the design of the smartphone. The Motorola built device was only showed face on for a product page shot, but now we can see it in a full render that looks like it is for official press shots. This sexed up image gives us a better look at the upcoming handset and reveals it will be a handsome looking thing.The Verizon DROID line is the carriers' exclusive range of smartphone and they are all now exclusively built by Motorola. The image above certainly shows the calling cards of a Motorola device, including the M symbol on the rear plate. It is also plain to see that this smartphone is based off the Moto X flagship, although it has that distinct DROID edge too. 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.
