Someone on Verizon’s social media team is having a bad Friday.

Droid Landing, the account that Verizon only uses to promote incoming launches of new Droid devices, tweeted a few minutes ago a beautiful, hi-res image of the red version of the Droid Turbo.

We first thought the image was part of a tease campaign, but the tweet has since been deleted, suggesting that someone simply clicked the wrong button.

The image shows a rather good looking device wrapped in red Kevlar. The design is distinctly Motorola, but it doesn’t share a resemblance with the new Moto X or with the rumored Nexus 6.

Thanks to another mistake, this time of Motorola’s, we know all the important details about the new Droid Turbo. A user manual for the device is available online, confirming the rumored high-res 5.2-inch display and 21MP camera.
