    It looks like we have another Motorola rumor this morning. This one comes from other publications though. The first version of this story came out on August 16th, but there's a new post backing up this story today. According to a supposed leak, the Verizon-bound Droid Turbo from Motorola will include a number of high-end specs which will put it at the top of the game. Here's a breakdown,
    A couple of other interesting tidbits can be gleaned from the screenshot above. It clearly shows model number XT1254. In the past, the XT model number has been Verizon's Droid RAZR line. This suggests the Droid Turbo will be one of the new RAZR series (although they could end up ditching the RAZR name this go around).

    Regardless of what name it ends up having, the specs are very impressive, especially that 2.65GHz Snapdragon 805 and 20MP camera. September is shaping up to be a huge month for announcements of smartphones. While this device might not show up then, it is likely we will see it announced before the end of this year. Could this be the new flagship Droid?

    IMO those specs are ridiculous for a 5" device. I'm all for the latest and greatest but unless Moto plans on skinning android again I don't see a need for it. It'll just drive up the cost. Maybe I'm missing something though. I know it's to get attention, but the Moto X is a fantastic device with the specs it had. But I'm excited to see the camera upgrade.

    on the move..

    No way bro ..specs bumped are needed ...of course keep good functionality and all too ...805 should help run it nicely ...always look to improve ...

    I agree, but the Moto X runs nicely with what some call ancient specs.

    on the move..

    Don't get me wrong. I'm going to have a hard time choosing what I'm going to switch to if leaks like this keep coming up. I'd totally rock this phone.

    on the move..

    Only interesting if it has microSD support. Then it's a beast.
    I'm guessing no microSD so I'm not interested.
    I can live witha non-removable battery but can't live with non-expandable storage.

    I really think that most of them will be dropping in the next 30 days(or within 30 days of their reveal) if not sooner.. I think that just 2 of them will be further out than 30 days.. I could be wrong.. But moto usually drops 4 or more at this event..

    Supposedly 640 DPI, which I guess means @4.6" display.

    if all this is true, this is my next phone (assuming it has an SD slot!!!!!!!!)

    20mp camera means nothing if you don't have good software
