Verizon Wireless is planning something special for October 27th, and by all accounts it has something to do with the unannounced Motorola Droid Turbo 2, as well as at least one other device. The Turbo 2 is rumored to be a higher spec variant of the Moto X Style, and has been leaked for some time now, including as the Moto X Force (previously the Moto X Bounce), believed to be its international moniker. Earlier today, case manufacturer Qmadix essentially confirmed the device by posting various press renders of its upcoming accessory offerings:
As indicated by the screen capture above, four products are currently listed, including two “X Series LITE” cases (black and white), an Invisible First-Defense Flexible Glass screen protector, and a standard Screen Protector. Of particular interest are some of the case images however:
The back of the case has a small hole cut into the bottom right portion of the rear. This will presumably used for a microphone, however it is somewhat further up than one might traditionally expect to find it. In addition, the picture of the bottom side of the smartphone clearly shows a standard USB 2.0 port.
What to expect
Based on past rumors or leaks, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is said to feature a 5.43-inch QHD POLED display, said to be ‘Shatterproof’. It will apparently be reinforced with metal edges to improve its strength. The phone is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor and 3GB of RAM. It may come in both 32GB and 64GB storage options. Also slated are a 21-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front facing camera, a 3,760mAh battery, and wireless charging.
Supposedly, the Droid Turbo 2 will be sold through Motorola’s Moto Maker website, which means there should be a large number of potential color customization combinations to play around with. As we had mentioned previously, this would be the first Droid-branded phone to be sold with true Moto Maker support, however customers will also be able to buy it directly through Verizon Wireless.
As a final detail, Motorola is purportedly going to offer customers a free, 1-time design swap within 2 years of purchase.
Until the Verizon event later this month, we must remind our readers that even these press renders are for a product that has yet to be confirmed by Motorola or Verizon, and thus some modicum of scrutiny should be employed. Let the count-down for October 27th begin!
