    Hot on the heels of the Verizon Droid Landing page going live, we have some even hotter intel to report on the Motorola Droid Turbo. The above image is supposedly the results of a benchmark for the Droid Quark, which is likely the internal name of the Droid Turbo.

    As you can see from the results, the Droid Turbo will be a monster in raw performance numbers, easily topping the list of Android flagships. This leaked benchmark isn't all we have though. We also have some intel which suggests the device will officially launch on Verizon October 28th. Let's cross our fingers and mark our calendars!

    THIS IS the phone to beat, IMHO. Don't need a fantastic camera, only need a fantastic phone and a superb browser, great screen, performance topping the charts and plenty of power to spare.

    Motorola Droid Turbo revealed Snapdragon 805 Quad HD and two-day battery Android Central


    Here's a new term I've not heard with respect to phone bodies, and they're saying splash-repellent including 20 minutes in a downpour...

    "The Turbo's body is said to be furnished in scratch-resistant "metallized glass fiber" with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 display, and basic splash-repellent properties. The phone can withstand "everyday spills and 20 minutes in a downpour," the marketing docs state. The back panel is reinforced with Kevlar, "offering a smooth finish."


    Also loving some of the other features mentioned;

    "In terms of networking, expect the Turbo to support Verizon's 4G LTE/XLTE network — and within 30-90 days of launch it'll be updated to take advantage of Big Red's Wireless Calling 1.0, the carrier's VoLTE implementation.

    NEW DROID-SPECIFIC 'ZAP' FEATURES ARE COMING TOO.
    On the software side, the device appears to be running Android 4.4 KitKat, though no OS version is specifically mentioned in the materials we've seen. In addition to Moto X features like Moto Voice, Moto Actions, Moto Assist and Moto Display, the Turbo sports a handful of new Droid-specific "Zap" features. "Zap Zone" allows Droid Turbo owners to set up their own local sharing group with those around them, and share pictures "with the flick of a finger." Zap to TV uses yourChromecast to set up an instant slideshow of your photos. And "Zap with Voice" lets you share a screenshot to your Zap Zone by saying "OK Droid Turbo, Zap my screen." (If you're so inclined.)"
