DroidLanding is alive and kicking, alludes to upcoming device using Motorola’s Quick Charge 2.0 Turbo Charger


DroidLanding Quick Charge Tweet

Almost a week ago today, Verizon’s @DroidLanding Twitter page went live for the first time in 8 months. They didn’t say much, only, “Reactivation fast approaching, wait and see.” Of course, we’re expecting Verizon to announce a new line of Motorola-made “Droid” smartphones, just like they did last year with the Motorola Droid Ultra, MAXX, and Mini.

Today, we saw @DroidLanding tweet another clue, this time mentioning, “Faster charging is a big deal. That’s why we made it a bigger deal.” Seeing as how last year’s Droid lineup was simply Motorola devices with slightly tweaked hardware, we’d be willing to bet @DroidLanding is talking about a phone utilizing Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 — a feature found in the upcoming Moto X (2nd Gen).

We told you guys last week how Motorola had their Turbo Charger listed as “coming soon” on their site, a wall charger that can juice up a Moto X (2nd Gen) with 8 hours of additional talk time in only 15 minutes. It only makes sense that an upcoming Droid device would utilize the same feature, with rumors pointing towards a 6-inch Motorola made phablet headed to Verizon in the near future.

In a separate note, I will say that I did get a very brief peak at this upcoming phablet which — the version I saw, anyway — looked identical to the Moto X in general aesthetic, only much, much larger. All we can say is we’re excited to see what Verizon has planned. Another Motorola Droid MAXX is exactly what the world needs, especially after seeing the average sized battery that comes inside the Moto X (2nd Gen).
