Motorola’s Droid Turbo Is The Moto X On Power Steroids

Motorola unveiled its Droid Turbo 4G LTE, an exclusive smartphone for Verizon with a monster battery that the manufacturer claims will last for two full days.

The phone features a 3900 mAh battery and specs that otherwise resemble those of the comparatively elegant Moto X flagship. The Droid Turbo has the same 5.2-inch screen, but with a higher quad HD resolution, and comes with a 21-megapixel camera that can take 4K video.

Motorola once again talked up its “turbo charger,” which it says can provide “eight hours of power in a quick 15 minutes.” That basically means you can charge the entire device in 90 minutes.

The 32GB model will set you back $200 (with a two-year contract); the 64GB version goes for $250 on contract. The Droid Turbo is launching with Android 4.4 KitKit, but will receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop upgrade when it becomes available.

Reinforcing Droid’s existing Kevlar case are two new and equally butch materials, ballistic nylon and metalized glass fiber. These substantial cases come in three colors: metallic black, metallic red and black ballistic nylon.

Motorola also announced that its Droid Mini is now free on contract, and the Droid Maxx is $49 on contract.
