    Today is apparently Motorola Droid Turbo news day. First we had the official Droid Landing page reveal from Verizon. Then we had a performance benchmark leak and October 28th release date rumor. Now we have a more detailed look at specs and a couple more leaked images to boot!

    Along with the pics you see above, the latest intel seems to confirm previous rumors of a 3,900 mAh battery for the Droid Turbo, but that's not all. Here's an updated breakdown of specs:
    • 5.2-inch Quad HD (2560x1440) resolution display (565 pixels per inch)
    • 2.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor
    • 3GB of RAM
    • 21-megapixel camera with 4K video recording capabilities and Dual LED flash
    • 3,900mAh battery - rated to 48 hours of use
    • 32GB of internal storage
    • 8 hours of use from a charge of just 15 minutes from the bundled Motorola Turbo Charger
    • 4G LTE/XLTE network
    • Android 4.4 KitKat
    On top of these very robust internals, the phone will also include a body which is supposedly furnished in a scratch-resistant "metallized glass fiber." It will have a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display, and basic splash-repellent properties - the leaked marketing materials suggest the device will stand up to "everyday spills and 20 minutes in a downpour." The rear panel is still reinforced with Kevlar like previous versions, although it is topped off with "a smooth finish."

    Finally, here's a quote regarding some of the software characteristics of the Droid Turbo,

    It looks like Verizon and Motorola have "gone back to the drawing board" to make the latest Droid a truly impressive successor to the hallowed lineage of the original Droid line. You can check out both leaked pics in the thread below, and hit up our dedicated Droid Turbo section here: Motorola Droid Turbo Android Forums at DroidForums.net

    Despite them going capacitive buttons, but I am guessing that may have been at Verizon's request, I like the look of the Turbo. Minus the blur looking icons I dig the device especially the clock widget. Verizon customers are going to have a tough choice on their hands. The moto X2 looks closer to stock android and can be customized with moto maker where the turbo has a larger battery and a better camera (on paper). I can not wait to see the head to head videos.

    The Turbo looks good, especially in red.

    Zap is pretty useless. Had it for almost a year and yet to use it. There are a lot more convenient way to accomplish what Zap tries to do.

    I agree...I tried the current Zap when it first came out, with my RAZR M and realized I could email or text a pic much quicker. The details for the new Zap on the Turbo make it sound much improved and maybe more useful.

    Looks like Lenovo did a nice job with the new Moto line.
