Motorola has been really busy in the news the last couple of weeks. The Moto 360, Moto X+1, and Moto G2 all have announcement dates that are a mere three weeks away. It turns out that there may be even more on the horizon from Motorola.

An anonymous source has sent in screenshots (pictured below) of a possible Motorola device that would be running on Verizon that is allegedly called the Droid Turbo. The specs are incredibly impressive and include:

  • Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.65GHz
  • 3GB RAM, 32GB of storage
  • 1440 x 2560 resolution with a 360 x 640 DPI (which, according to math, makes it a 4.59″ display)
  • Android 4.4.4
  • 20MP rear camera, 2MP front camera

The other notable stat from the screenshots is that the model number is XT1254 (quark_verizon). The “XT” has been used in Motorola’s RAZR line up before. Based on that and the fact that the word “Verizon” is in the screen shot, we would wager a guess that this is likely Verizon’s Droid RAZR device for this year. Or at least one of them since Verizon and Motorola releases multiple variants of the Droid RAZR series every year.

The one weird stat is the 4.59″, 1440p display that’s capable of an absurd 640 PPI which seems a bit ridiculous at first glance. However, it appears as though there are displays out there that fit that many pixels on such a small screen. Of course, it’s also been rumored that Alcatel is working on a phone with a similar screen so it’s not the first we’ve heard of a 4.6″ screen at 1440p resolution. Even if we haven’t actually seen one yet, it appears as though we will, eventually.

Usually we’d say that this is just a rumor and to take it with a grain of salt. However, there is a Bluetooth SIG page for this device that’s dated for August 13th so that means we’re all but certain that this device is real. The only questions we really have left are when will it be released and what is it actually going to be called (likely the Droid Turbo but we don’t know for sure). Until Motorola drops more details, all we know for sure is that this is most likely real and that it’s heading to Verizon.
