Leaked blurry Droid Turbo photos confirm flagship specs

The latest batch of blurry photos of the unannounced Motorola Droid Turbo that's said to be headed to Verizon's 4G LTE network confirms the specs that we think we may already know from prior leaks. The Android smartphone would join the Moto X 2014 and Motorola-made Google Nexus 6 on Verizon's network. Unlike the Nexus 6, however, the Droid Turbo in the leaked photo is shown running Android 4.4.4 rather than Google's latest sweet flavor of Lollipop. Other specs include a QHD 2560 X 1440-pixel display, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of built-in storage.

Prior to the latest leak, we had seen the device detailing many of its specs in a leaked user manual for Verizon.

What is your favorite Motorola device so far this year? Let us know if you'll be picking up the Droid Turbo.

  • Pretty much expected with Droid branded devices.
  • My HTC Droid DNA disagrees Posted via Android Central App
  • HTC is the exception. Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • Lol its true
  • Word! The DNA is still beautifully designed phone! Posted via Android Central App
  • My old white RAZR M begs to differ. Posted via Android Central App
  • Amen. Usually the Droid phones are ugly. I've never seen one that looked pretty like the Moto X. Posted via Android Central App on the Moto X
  • The RAZR was pretty nice though. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yeah, it was. Sent from my Sony Xperia Tablet Z
  • The Moto X isn't pretty either tho.. Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • You must pick the color combination. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Droid incredible.
  • Clearly you have a misunderstanding of the meaning of the word ugly
  • It's subjective... Posted via Android Central App
  • No, I get to make the final decision :)
  • Whatever makes you happy Posted via the Nexus 5 running on 5.0 Lollipop
  • Hell yeah ! via AC App on VZW Moto X/N7
  • No I get to make the final choice. And I say Droid Motorola sucks MAJOR MONKEY BALLS especially Verizon Wireless too. From my Galaxy Note 3 on T-Mobile via Android Central App
  • Too bad it has better battery life than your favored Samsung phones.
  • True, you get to make the final choice... for yourself. Contrary to your delusional beliefs, you do not, and cannot, represent everyone else's beliefs/thoughts/opinions. But who am I kidding, your a delusional, self-centered, moronic fanboy.
  • And you are bothered by that which makes you vulnerable, meek (in a bad way) and soft Posted via the Android Central App
  • It looks like every other phone once you put a case on it. If it can last 2 days on a charge, I dont care what it looks like.
  • What, you're going for function over form? The HORROR! :P

  • You are not winning any award for figuring this out. This phone is meant to be durable and a work house. It's made for real men, not effeminate internet male.
  • So by your standards, the new Dodge Challenger SRT with 707 horsepower, which is pretty awesome and beautiful, should not exist as a powerhouse because it would be effeminate and not for real men? There are powerhouse phones that manage to be great looking and high end on the spec sheet. Certainly you can choose to get an aesthetic abomination as your phone, but you could just get the nicer version of the phone by Motorola as well. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hellcat!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • I heard that the actual power is more around 825 HP if that helps your argument ;) Posted via the Nexus 5 running on 5.0 Lollipop
  • Which is from the Charger Hellcat's figures, but they use the same exact engine Posted via the Nexus 5 running on 5.0 Lollipop
  • 707hp. Hellcat!! Posted via the Android Central App
  • That was prior to not meeting all emissions requirements... Posted via the Android Central App
  • +1,000,000 for mentioning the Hellcat Posted via Android Central App
  • Nicer version? Once this juggernaut lands, it will be the "nicer version". go to HTC, they need people like you to drive their company in the ground some more. Posted via the Android Central App
  • No, the SRT is for stupid men with more money than brains. The gas for that thing could power a small city! "Don't be a Dick." - JH
  • Go hug a tree. I'm the kind of guy that stops a microwave at 1 second to feel like a bomb defuser.
  • I don't hug trees. But if you want to continue to fund our enemies, just keep buying these ridiculous vehicles. "Don't be a Dick." - JH
  • You are a tree hugger, liar ! How come all you emission freaks and environmentalists complain about the environment , but yet when you guys have a convention about it, no one walks. You guys all use the modes of transportation powered by the "stuff " that u claim is causing " climate change" Posted via the Android Central App
  • That's a silly argument. People fly on planes because it is faster than walking yes. But the plane moves cargo and people at the same time. And the amount used to power the plane per person on board and adjusted for freight is less than the amount of gas it would take to drive one person the equivalent distance. Just because people use modern transportation doesn't mean that they are Hippocrates. Private jets, yes those are horrible, (but there is an argument that could be made there). And let's not forget all the fossil fuels that are burned on a daily basis to power the internet. Things are getting better, just not as fast as some would like. I myself consider us to be in the Pioneering times of modern technology. Its exciting. And so is a kick ass muscle car. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Did you see all the trash left behind in New York after the little march the tree huggers just had about month ago? Hypocrites. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yeah but Dodge Challenger's are ugly too.

  • I don't understand the absolute need you feel to be super sexist in your reply. In doing so, you let the reader know "hey - even if I do have something meaningful and useful to say - I'm complete and utter moron. have a great day." And by the way, it's "work HORSE" - not "work house." Please pick up a book for something other than coloring.
  • Keep overcompensating, it's still small.
  • this comment is pretty bad
  • There's women that are durable and are work horses but if they're ugly we don't want them. So your point is moot.
  • I don't get all the dissing on the looks...I think the red one is gorgeous! And functionally it's a Moto X on steroids, or a Nexus 6 in a less-phablet size...what's not to like ? Other than the missing SD card and imho the wireless charging that I've been missing from my DNA makes up for that. Posted via the HTC One
  • Are those physical keys?! No no no!
  • They are capacitive buttons like on the M7, M8, S4, S5, Note 3, and Note 4 to name a few recent and current flagships. All Samsung devices also have their iconic "physical" home button.
  • I thought the M8 was on screen buttons? Posted via Android Central App
  • You are correct. M8 is onscreen, not capacitive Posted via Android Central App
  • What is a capasitive button ? Posted via the Android Central App
  • Uses electricity in finger to detect button press instead of using a physical button. Posted via Android Central App
  • To each their own. Phone with the best specs on the market, I really do not care what it looks like. Posted via the Android Central App
  • And that's the reason why people buy iphones, 100% pretty, 0% operational.
  • That design leaves something to be desired, that's for sure. Sent from my Panasonic ELUGA
  • Disagree, that's for sure Posted via Android Central App
  • I don't really care what it looks like. I care how it works and this is going to work good. Who knows maybe 5.0 gets put on before launch Posted via Android Central App
  • Coming from a guy that bought last year's Droid Maxx, don't count on it. It will get updated pretty quickly to 5.0 but if it's like last year, it will be buggy and kill your battery life.
  • Yeah, I hated when 5.0 killed my battery last year...
  • I know you were trying to make a witty comment, but his comment was fine Posted via the Nexus 5 running on 5.0 Lollipop
  • Yeah, his comment was great.
    The part where he bashed an update before it is even released was great.
    The implication that L(which is designed to improve battery life) will kill battery life was awesome.
    I don't know why I had a problem with what he said...
  • He said *if* it was like last year's, not that it will be buggy Posted via the Nexus 5 running on 5.0 Lollipop
  • +1
    Not everyone here is that good at reading. They just come here to start arguments. Posted via Android Central App on The Nexus 5
  • LOUD NOISES! Posted via the Android Central App
  • Nah, I'll be passing on this one. I'm either going with the new Moto X or Nexus 6. I need to get the nexus in my hands to determine if it will be to large for me first. Posted via Android Central App on the Moto X
  • Like I said in one of my other posts, those pretty pictures of the red and black one liked nice, since most renders always do. Now I actually held the Note 4, and it is one sweet looking device, with a gorgeous screen, stylus, removable battery "which is also huge" and micro SD card expansion, no other phone maker gives you all that, if they did they would not be chasing Samsung in the Android market. Posted via Android Central App
  • You're right, no question, and I've always and still do love Sammy, but I have always liked Motorola too. Just something about their devices... Posted via the Android Central App
  • Probably my replacement for my Droid Maxx. Posted via Android Central App
  • The Nexus 6 will be too big for me. My only gripe is there is no word on a 64GB version. Posted via Android Central App
  • If it makes you feel better, there's no official word on a 32GB version either. or 16GB or 8GB...
  • Beast! Posted via Android Central App
  • Probably my next phone! Killer specs plus wireless charging, YES! Leather backed MotoX currently in second place. After I get my hands on them i'll know for sure.
  • Its funny because I really wish it didn't have the physical buttons since it would look a lot better without them. That being said they dont bother me on the droid maxx. The design however is more complete without them. I know the main reason they are there is it would just be empty space if they were not there. But they probably could of kept the size, gone to a 5.5 screen, and removed the buttons.
  • Not sure if this'll replace my Maxx HD. I'm still pretty happy with it. Wondering if the Turbo will have external memory capabilities?
  • If the maxx HD just had a better camera I would have put it in a time capsule Posted via the Android Central App
  • I like the spec's, size (not a phablet), and style particularly the red one. If it has OIS and I was a Verizon customer, I'd seriously consider it. Of course I'd wait for reviews.
  • Is it just me, or those are softkeys and not capacitive buttons? I would love if they were.
  • Pretty sure they're capacitive. Look at where the screen ends just above the buttons. You can see pretty well they are off screen. But that's just me and my take. My guess is they're capacitive which is interesting since other Moto phones have not been even the RAZR M has on screen buttons. Posted via Android Central App
  • Almost positive they are capacitive buttons. I remember reading elsewhere about them also... Posted via the Android Central App
  • I don't want an ugly phone. Pass.
  • If you don't want an ugly phone then this is the Droid you're looking for
  • +1 internet. +1nerdpoints Well played sir. Well played indeed Posted via Android Central App
  • I definitely like the way the Moto X (either year) look better, this is a classic Droid RAZR look here with the monster bezel and capacitive buttons. But if it's camera and battery performance are what they say it should be, this will be my choice for upgrading (still rocking the s3) over the LG G3 or Note 4... But will have to wait and see how it stands up to you competition. Posted via Android Central App
  • Would have been so much better if this was the nexus 6 instead of the big tablet thing they are releasing.
  • Most people dissing this phone wouldn't have bought one anyway. This phone appeals to certain people, like myself, who favor battery life and functionality over form. If my MAXX HD had a better camera and 2gb of ram, I'd ever upgrade. My next phone will be this or the Sony Z3v.
  • Oh yeah I have looked into that one too... Would be nice to get my hands on one of those before I buy to too. But both are looking pretty awesome! Posted via Android Central App
  • Love the IPS on it !!! Hopefully it's as good as N7 Just wondering about the brightness - light gotta break through so many pixels :) via AC App on VZW Moto X/N7
  • So why would the 6 be released with 5.0 and this not? Doesn't add up. Posted via Android Central App
  • Maybe Verizon wanna play it safe for whatever reason. They tend to mess up things, somehow - on Droid series they have more of a say. "Zapp" , flipping clock widget, etc. Droid was a bit late with updates because of that (I guess). via AC App on VZW Moto X/N7
  • Because the N6 is the new Nexus? But it should get 5 pretty quickly. "Don't be a Dick." - JH
  • Its going to be this smartphone or the nexus 6 for me. It might just come down to a coin toss which one i choose. This is one amazing looking device!
  • Oh man, do I want this phone. Too bad I can't upgrade until June of '15
  • Hey Motorola, can we get a GSM/LTE version of this phone for those us who don't want to sign up with Verizon? And no I don't want the Nexus 6. That is just way too big for me. I think 5.2" is still a little too big so I'd rather have a 4.7-5" screen but I'll take a 5.2" screen over 6".
  • 32GB of storage is sad for 4k video and 21MP pics. Actually.. 32GB is also sad for 2014. I used to want and SDcard, but i'd rather have large in phone storage. Or both. but neither? no thx Everyone is referring to this as if it were a BEAST. 256 GB would break new ground. 128 GB would preserve high end status. But not 32GB; that was available 2.5 years ago with the Snapdraggon s4 and 8mp cameras Fail.
  • Just because all we have seen is 32GB doesn't mean there won't be 64GB model. Just saying..... Posted via the Android Central App
  • All the the reason to stick with Samsung Posted via Android Central App
  • So excited for this phone!! Moto is totally killing it
  • Kinda reminds me of the Nexus One... Just needs a rolly ball in the middle lol
  • If no one has actually held and seen this in the flesh. You really shouldn't comment on its looks. Much better in person. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I didn't know you all were a bunch of teenage girls more worried about fashion and how it looks over how it performs and functions. This phone is a beast that looks the same as every other phone out there. Big, and flat with some bezel.
  • That SCREAMS "old Motorola". I thought they were evolved and all "Google-fied" now.
  • Are those capacitive buttons? Not very Google Motorola.
  • All their best selling phones have them.
    Love having the full screen Posted via Android Central App
  • Still buying. Get a case. Deal with it. It's worth it counting that it's a beast phone. Posted via the Android Central App
  • My red Ultra, although recently dead from an OS collapse after only one year of use, was gorgeous. I WILL be getting the Turbo and will trust the OS to not fail me this time. And it too will be red.
