Motorola has been pretty busy as of late, not only releasing next-gen iterations of the Moto G and Moto X, but also possibly working on a Nexus smartphone as well. Recently there has also been talk about a new Droid for Verizon’s network, one that will reportedly offer pretty bad-ass specs including a QHD resolution on a 4.6-inch display and a Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM.

It’s still unclear if the rumored specs are actually correct, but there seems to be more evidence pointing towards the so-called Droid Turbo’s existence, including a new report from CNET that claims the phone will be unveiled next month. The news of the October launch allegedly comes from “people familiar with the matter”, along with word that the handset will offer up quick charging technology.

Honestly, we can’t say we are too surprised about the quick charging claim, as the @DroidLanding twitter account recently reactivated and tweeted the following message: “Faster charging is a big deal. That’s why we made it a bigger deal. #waitforit”

Aside from fast charging, the latest available SOC, 3GB RAM and a QHD resolution, the Droid Turbo is also said to offer up a 20MP rear cam, 2MP front cam and is said to be the only Droid device coming this year. That’s certainly a break from tradition, and this could also mean we won’t be seeing a “Maxx” model this time around. That said, it’s certainly possible that Motorola could bring a massive battery to the Turbo, in addition to quick charging tech — though that’s just speculation on our part.

If the Droid Turbo really ends up with the specs attributed to it in rumors, anyone interested in picking this one up in lieu of a Moto X (2014) or another 2014 flagship device?
