Motorola announced:

It’s hard to believe that it’s been five years since we launched the original DROID. Since then, DROID smartphones have come to be known for speed, power and endurance, built to outperform your expectations and push the limits of what a smartphone can do.

And today, we’re excited to announce the latest in this line of premium smartphones: DROID Turbo.

From the beginning, DROID smartphones have come with leading-edge technology, including Verizon’s blazingly fast network speeds, exceptional battery life and the latest in innovative material design. And DROID Turbo is no exception. Designed to keep pace with you, DROID Turbo gives you ultimate power and performance without compromise featuring amazing specs wrapped into a package of cutting-edge materials:

  • 48 hour battery. Zero compromise: Go up to 48 hours1 without stopping to recharge thanks to a 3900mAH battery, one of the largest ever put in a smartphone. Plus, when you charge DROID Turbo with the Motorola Turbo Charger, you get up to eight hours of power in a quick 15 minutes when you need it the most.2
  • Processing power on overdrive: With the most powerful Qualcomm® processor, the quad-core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon™ 805 under its hood, DROID Turbo is a beast when it comes to multitasking and keeping up with you.
  • Quad HD display. Four times the view: 5.2” Quad HD screen (4x resolution of HD) features industry-leading 565 ppi so image details pop, videos look smooth, and even the smallest type is easy to read.
  • Pixel power: 21MP camera for capturing high-res pictures and movie-quality 4K video so life’s moments look their best.

Materials that break the mold: Choose from cutting-edge materials such as ballistic nylon or metalized glass fiber that offer a distinctive design while providing ultimate durability. Plus, underneath these cutting edge materials, DROID Turbo continues to sport Kevlar®, a material five times stronger than steel.

DROID Turbo also features the Verizon-exclusive DROID Zap app for fast and easy sharing with friends. Now with DROID Turbo, you can even Zap to TV or use your voice to Zap your screen.

Starting on October 30, DROID Turbo will be available with two storage options at Verizon.com. The 32GB DROID Turbo in Metallic Black, Metallic Red or Ballistic Nylon will be available for $199 with a two-year Verizon contract and the 64GB version available in Ballistic Nylon will be $249 with a two-year Verizon contract.

Note that all Motorola devices that arrive in the UK, drop the “Droid” moniker. This means that if the Turbo lands on our shores, it will be known as the “Motorola Turbo.”

Motorola is yet to announce when the device will be available in the UK.
