The above image is the OG Motorola Droid Turbo.
According to new report from our friends over at Phandroid, the new Motorola Droid Turbo 2 will be coming in October. Specifically, the Droid Turbo 2 will be revealed on October 15th and will hit store shelves on October 29th.
There's another interesting add-on to this news. Supposedly, the new Droid Turbo 2 (which will be called the Moto X Force outside of the US) will be available for customization on Moto Maker. Even crazier is that when you purchase the Droid Turbo 2 online through Moto Maker, Motorola will supposedly offer consumers a one-time, free design swap/replacement within 2 years of purchase. Basically, that means that if you hate your device color after having it in hand for a while, Moto will swap out the design for you.
We aren't quite sure what to make of this intel. It seems to go against the grain of the Verizon Droid line to offer customization options, but that's what was reported. It could be an interesting new collaboration between Verizon and Motorola, and we are anxious to see if this proves true.
Finally, on top of these two tidbits of juicy intel, we have another confirmation of specs for the phone, but this time we have another new detail regarding the supposedly "shatterproof" display.
- 5.43-inch QHD “Shatterproof” display - with reinforced metallic edges surrounding the display
- Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 processor
- 32GB/64GB internal storage options
- 3GB RAM
- 21MP/5MP cameras
- 3,760mAh battery
What do you folks think? Do these rumors make you more or less interested in the next generation Droid Turbo?
