Motorola’s Droid Turbo on Verizon splashed with new colors

The 28th of May will see the Droid Turbo smartphone from Motorola and Verizon being released in the form of three new color choices for buyers to consider. The color change does not actually apply to the entire body but just its accents.

Metallic blue, metallic orange and metallic violet will be the three hues you’ll see splashed onto the camera rims and the Droid Turbo logos of the smartphone. You’ll need to purchase the gray ballistic nylon version of the Motorola handset in order to take advantage of these new options.

The device is being sold in the US exclusively by Verizon at a reduced price of $499.99. Interested parties can also opt for the carrier’s Edge facility and grab the device for free upfront and keep paying $20.83 a month for 24 months. For a limited period of time, trading in an old smartphone in working condition can net them a maximum discount of $150 on the Droid Turbo.
