Motorola DROID Turbo for Verizon finally breaks cover: 5.2″ QHD display, 21MP camera
Motorola has finally taken the covers off the much anticipated DROID Turbo smartphone specially made for Verizon (oh well). The brand new device measures 143.5 x 73.3 x 8.3 mm while tipping the scale at 169 grams.
The Motorola DROID Turbo, as expected, comes with a 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display with QHD or 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution. The touchscreen is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection and the body of the phone is water resistant as quoted by Verizon.
Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Krait 450 processor and Adreno 420 graphics box alongside a powerful Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3GB of RAM. The phone arrives with either 32GB or 64GB of storage while there is no space for microSD card support. The gigantic 3900mAh power unit inside the phone which will offer 48 hours of average usage per Verizon wording is irremovable and so is the back cover.
Apart from the “Verizon”, “DROID” and “M” inscriptions, the other things you’ll find at at the back of the phone is a 21MP camera with 4k video recording a dual tone LED flash. The other side of the smartphone is adorned by a 2-megapixel selfie unit.
Verizon offers the 32GB Motorola DROID Turbo at the price of $199.99 on a two-year contract while the 64GB model goes for $249.99 on a 24-month contract. The smartphone is also available on Verizon Edge with the 32GB and 64GB going for $25 per month and $27 per month respectively.
