Motorola has officially unveiled its new flagship smartphone. It is a model with the Droid Turbo label, which brings characteristics worthy of a premium model. The Motorola Droid Turbo brings the distinctive design of this line of devices.
Unlike the previous leading Moto X model, the new Droid has flatter surfaces. The back of the phone is made of embossed metallic material, which is, in a way, a recognizable design style of Motorola.

The Motorola Droid Turbo will come in two color variants, namely black and red. Interestingly, in the 64GB variant, the Motorola Droid Turbo will also have a special “lining” of nylon for better grip. At the same time, this version is waterproof.
The back of the phone is dominated by a large manufacturer’s logo. There is also a dual LED flash next to the camera. Interestingly, Motorola has decided to keep the capacitive keys forward, which is probably a consequence of the desire to preserve the recognizability of the Droid family.

Still, the features are what sets the Motorola Droid Turbo apart from the rest. The generous and ultra-high-quality 5.2-inch AMOLED screen with Quad HD resolution delivers a stunning 565 pixels per inch.

Beneath the solid and robust body is the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, clocked at 2.7GHz and supported with powerful Adreno 420 graphics and as much as 3GB of RAM. All this makes the new Droid the most powerful smartphone at the moment. There will be no microSD expansion options, so the choice will be reduced to 32 or 64GB.
When it comes to software, Android is very close to the original form, and it is a 4.4.4 KitKat version, with a planned upgrade to 5.0 Lolipop.
The camera on the Droid Turbo has 21MP with a dual LED flash, while the auxiliary 2MP camera has taken its place in the front.
Motorola wouldn’t be what it is if it didn’t install a large battery, which in this case gives a fantastic 3,900mAh, which is the largest “volume” in this segment. Motorola points out that this is enough for two days of heavy use. At the same time, the Droid Turbo comes with a quick charge option.
