Someone over at Verizon handling social media goofed up big time as the carrier’s Droid Landing Twitter account accidentally uploaded an image of the upcoming Droid Turbo smartphone by Motorola. And while everyone assumed that Big Red was merely teasing the phone’s imminent launch, the picture was quickly pulled from the account.
This confirms that it wasn’t intended to be published, not just yet and the fact that there was no description with the picture clearly shows that it was uploaded by mistake. The employee responsible for the mishap is probably having a bad weekend, but thanks to the tweet, we now have a complete look at the phone’s design.
The leaked image focuses on the Motorola Droid Turbo’s rear panel which flaunts a Kevlar reinforced design coated in a bright shade of red, highlights Android Authority. Just a couple of days back, we got the first official glimpse of the phone’s front (see below) thanks to a leaked user manual.
What’s interesting is that the handset isn’t modeled after the Moto X flagship or the Nexus 6, albeit it still shares a few common elements. For instance, the rear panel has the Motorola logo just below the camera. The snapper is said to be a 21MP sensor and it’s accompanied by two LED flash lights, one on each side.
Here’s a roundup of the Motorola Droid Turbo specs known so far:
– Android 4.4.4 KitKat
– 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel display
– 3GB RAM, 32GB storage
– Quad core Snapdragon 805 chipset
– 21MP rear camera
– 4G LTE
– Qi wireless charging
There’s no word on when the Motorola Droid Turbo will go official, but considering that the company has press material ready to publish, we could see it get unveiled soon. We’ve got a feeling that October 15 could be the day.
