We are pretty familiar with the upcoming DROID Turbo, so much so that there will have to be a fairly substantial surprise at launch for this not to be everything we expect it to be. The Motorola built Verizon exclusive smartphone has been oft leaked and today Big Red itself is offering a concrete date for its launch.The largest carrier in the United States has posted a new "Droid Does" landing page in preparation for the device and the page is counting down to the launch of the smartphone. The clock is counting down and currently has 14 days remaining, meaning the DROID Turbo will be landing on October 28th. If you want, you can sign up for updates, although I am not sure what those updates would be, but go for it if you want. As I said, we already know plenty about this handset. You can take a look at an official Verizon image of the device above and read below to see what we expect from this new high end smartphone.
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.source: Verizon
