Motorola's upcoming Droid Turbo for Verizon is apparently out of the bag, as the smartphone's user manual has surfaced before its official debut.
Verizon Wireless and Motorola have been having a special relationship for years, and this fruitful collaboration has resulted in the popular lineup of Droid devices, exclusive to the carrier.
Amid various rumors regarding a purported Motorola Droid Turbo, we're now close to an official confirmation as the user guide for the smartphone has surfaced online earlier this week. While it doesn't specifically list the hardware specifications of the upcoming Verizon-exclusive smartphone from Motorola, the user manual does offer a few exciting hints of what's to come.
Although the Motorola Droid Turbo has leaked on several occasions so far, the user manual still reveals several aspects that had not leaked so far. For instance, the user guide reveals the fact that the Droid Turbo will work with nano SIM cards, not micro SIM as previously thought.
The Droid Turbo seems to be packed with impressive specifications from what we can tell from its manual. The document reveals a 5.2-inch "ultra high-definition display," which could mean a QHD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. This would mark a significant improvement compared to the display found on the new Moto X, which comes with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels).
The user manual further mentions a top-notch 21-megapixel rear camera, a "high-capacity long lasting battery," as well as Qi wireless charging support and compatibility with Motorola's Turbo Charger.
Moreover, the smartphone is also expected to sport most of the popular features Moto X has to offer, including Moto Voice, Moto Display, Moto Connect, Moto Assist, and Moto Actions.
It's also quite intriguing that the Verizon Droid Turbo seems to come with a "vanilla" Android experience like the Moto X, which means that Motorola will refrain from baking too much of its software into the smartphone. On the other hand, Verizon will most likely come with its fair share of bloatware, so it remains to be seen just how "vanilla" the Droid Turbo will be after all.
Neither Motorola nor Verizon have made any official announcement so far regarding their upcoming Droid lineup, but this Droid Turbo user manual is the closest thing to formal confirmation at this point. We'll make sure to keep you up to date as soon as we learn more, so stay tuned.
