While there has been plenty of buzz surrounding a potential champagne (or gold, depending on whether you like shiny, expensive material, or a bottle of bubbly more) shade in the upcoming iPhone 5S, we do not want to detract from upcoming flagship models which will hail from different manufacturers – such as the Motorola Droid 5. Or at least, what we would like to think is, thanks to a leak from a Weibo account in China. This alleged Motorola Droid 5, if true, would mean the drought for a new Droid device from the Google-owned company will be the first in more than one and a half years, and even more interesting is the fact that the leaked image points to a Verizon logo, making this something of a Verizon tradition now when you think about it.
The leaked picture does not seem to reveal too much, as the Droid 5 certainly does not seem as though it has changed a whole lot compared to its previous four predecessors, still carrying the trademark slide-out QWERTY physical keyboard, but it does seem as though the buttons might no longer feature the capacitive features found in its older iterations. As for the display size, do not expect something as huge as a phablet, as it does seem to reside between the 4.3” and 4.5” territories. Other alleged features include wireless charging, NFC support and a case that is said to be tougher than most smartphones. features like NFC, wireless charging and a case that’s been made to resist water and dust better than other smartphones.
Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Back Cases Leaked
It looks like there is more to the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 that we can look at this time around, where the smartphone is set to be the very first Droid-branded smartphone that is set to be made available to the masses via Moto Maker. Just in case you were wondering, Moto Maker happens to be Motorola’s very own online hardware customization service. The newly leaked image points to a variety of back covers – perhaps even all of them, where it seems that some are made out of leather, others carrying the possibility of a kevlar case, or perhaps some kind of fabric.
As for the hardware specifications, the Droid Turbo 2 is tipped to arrive with a “shatterproof” QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, and a generous 3,760 mAh battery. Can’t wait for October 27th for the official unveiling!
Motorola Bounce Said To Be ‘Shatterproof’
Fancy an indestructible phone? That sounds like something right up the Impossible Mission Force’s alley, as those are the folks who are involved in high level espionage and live a life that hangs on the edge, getting into all sorts of scrapes and what not. Having said that, here is a little bit of something that might suit them – the Motorola Bounce, which is also known as the X Force in certain circles.
Well, apparently, it has been said to come with a “shatterproof” build, which can be rather difficult to believe in the first place, but who knows? The Motorola Bounce is also said to arrive with a 5.43” QHD display, a Qualcomm MSM8994 chipset, a choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, 3GB of RAM, a 21MP shooter at the back with a 5MP camera in front, and a 3,760mAh battery. Ah well, we will just have to wait for it to be revealed to know more.
3rd Generation Moto G Spotted With 2GB RAM
It looks like the third generation Moto G from Motorola is about to be on the receiving end of 2GB RAM, as opposed to questions of whether it will come with just 1GB RAM or not. A posting on Indian export-import site Zauba has shown that 190 units of the upcoming third generation Moto G model were sent from Hong Kong to India for testing purposes, with half the number of those being black, while the remaining number were white in color.
Other than having listed down 2GB RAM, it also listed 8GB of internal memory, where each model was valued at $240 a pop. A couple more handsets shipped to India for testing were listed at a far lower value. All in all, we will simply have to wait for the official reveal as to ascertain whether this particular generation of the Moto G will come with 1GB RAM or double that amount this coming July 28th as Motorola holds an event in New York which will most probably tell all by then.
