Motorola is set to release a new Droid phone with super-long battery life

posted on October 27, 2014


Verizon and Motorola have parterned before to the tune of their Droid phones. While they were not the forefront of Android devices and never saw the success of Samsung and HTC, the Droid phones had one feature that trumped all the others – battery life. The Motorola Droid Maxx lasted for days with its 3,500 mAh battery.

Moto Firmware (not related to Motorola) posted a few images of a new Droid phone that is yet to hit the market – reported called the Droid Turbo. The images show the new phone being un-boxed from its retail packaging and has the distinctive Droid and Verizon branding on it. Based on the leaked images, the new Droid phone follows the design aesthetic set by Motorola with the Moto X and the newly released Nexus 6. Its difficult to tell the exact dimensions and size of the screen from the images, but it is expected to be upwards of 5 in – or even larger given that the bezels around the screen are almost non-existent.

If reports are to be believed, the device will improve on the Droid Maxx with an even larger 3,900 mAh battery which should see it easily last 48 hrs on a single charge. It it is true, it is more than likely that this new phone is the successor to the Droid Maxx. Other rumors mention that the Droid Turbo will come with a 2K display (2560 x 1440), 21-megapixel camera and a faster processor.

It is expected that Verizon and Motorola will officially announce the Droid Turbo on Tuesday – Oct. 28.
