Leak: Motorola DROID Turbo training materials talk specs, build quality and more



Earlier this morning we saw Verizon begin to tease the Motorola DROID Turbo for an October 28th unveiling. They weren’t too talkative about what to expect, of course, but we’ve got more information to deliver thanks to a timely leak. A source of Phandroid’s passed along some early training materials for sales managers. The materials push their employees to sell the DROID Turbo on a few different areas:

  • Its 21 megapixel camera and Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display
  • Its 2.7GHz quad-core processor and software like Moto Voice, Intelligent Imaging and Zap Zone (for beaming photos to friends, to nearby TVs or quickly capturing screenshots using voice and sending it off to whoever you want)
  • 48 hours of battery life (thanks to a 3,900mAh battery) and the ability to get 8 hours of life with 15 minutes of charging through the Motorola Turbo Charger
  • Metalized Glass Fiber build materials coated with Kevlar fiber, water resistant repellent coating, Corning Gorilla Glass

We also finally learn that the device will come in 32GB of internal storage, though the documents don’t suggest whether there will be any other storage options to be had. We can also confirm that the DROID Turbo will be available in both Metallic Red and Metallic Black.


Unfortunately the training materials didn’t reveal much else, but between the leaks we’ve seen in the past few weeks and today’s teaser we’d say we have a pretty good idea of what to expect before its coming out party later this month. Stay tuned!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. seriously…..Just let me have the Sony and quit bringing up new things…..so about this droid….What size screen and ram? These could be the Droids I am looking for.

    1. 5.2″ QHD display with 3GB of ram

  2. I’d like to know the dimensions. I know the screen size, but this might be my next phone if it comes to T-Mobile. I really can’t stand how they turned the Nexus into a monstrosity.

    1. It’s a DROID, so Verizon exclusive.

      If you’re lucky it’ll be SIM-unlocked or there will be an almost-but-not-quite-the-same model for everyone else.

      1. Yes I know *this* model is a Droid, but there have been leaks everywhere of the same phone, that would of course have a different name.

        1. ohhh- forgive me for not reading your mind . How the hell was I supposed to know you were gonna comment again. and the only reason for the the second comment was so you didnt sound like a dumb ass. — NEWS FLASH!!!- Too late !!!

          1. My second comment was already there, good sir. Even without it, you assumed I literally meant this phone, a Droid, would come to T-Mobile, when everyone know a name is just a name, and different models are sold all the time. So instead of using just a bit of sense, you tried to sound superior because you’re on the internet. And now you’re using caps too. Any other telltale signs while we’re still here?

          2. hahahahahahahaha

          3. brown is butt.

          4. I understood what you meant. Even someone like myself, with only
            occasional visits to phone forums, knows Droid is a Verizon brand. We
            also know that companies often produce similar models for other
            carriers. I took it that you assumed the people on the forum had this
            knowledge, and you were just hoping a variant of the phone would
            eventually be available on T-Mo.

            Don’t waste your time responding to the insult toddlers. It only encourages them.

          5. Thank you.

    2. You had me at “if it comes to T-Mobile”

    3. its not coming to T-Mobile numb nuts. Its a Verizon exclusive. along with every other “Droid” ever made

      1. Maybe if you’d just use your head for a minute, or even just read my second comment, you’d not sound like every other person on the internet who’s first reaction is to attempt to insult someone, rather than speak like their parents aren’t pond scum.

    4. Droid Turbo is 73.33mm wide and 143.49mm tall
      Moto X 2014 is 72.6mm wide and 140.36mm tall

      1. Thanks very much.

    5. The DROID brand are only on VZW as an exclusive.

  3. I don’t understand how this is a moto device, yet it doesn’t have the same software features as the Moto X? Like Moto Voice. Etc. Instead what you get is ‘something like moto voice’.

    1. It does. Read the sentence as, “software such as Moto Voice, Intelligent Imaging and Zap Zone….”

      1. ignore the stupid comment like he said lol

    2. Ignore my very stupid comment please :)

  4. Wish this was the nexus device

  5. Corning “Gorilla Glass” has to be the most overrated phone glass on the market. Only time I’ve ever seen a phone with Gorilla Glass remain scratch free is if it had a screen protector on it.

    1. Yeah anyone that says their screen is completely free of scratches is full of sh*t or blind.

      1. Having been in the used phone business for 4+ years now, I can tell you, a lot of people come to ignore the faint scratches that get on their screens from keys/loose change. People walk up to me with phones wanting to trade/sell them and claim it’s mint. Then they get mad at me when I tell them a scratched screen does not = mint condition.

      2. Maybe you just take poor care of your phone.

    2. My 10 month old Galaxy S3 is completely scratch free without a screen protector. At least to the naked eye, and I have studied it to try and find one. I have 20/20 vision. Just take good care of your phone.

      1. Bullsh*t.

      2. That would be extremely rare if you don’t have scratches on your screen and don’t have a screen protector on it.

  6. Does it really have red chin or is that some weird angle or reflection?

    Edit: nvm the first picture has no red chin.

    1. That’s because the 1st picture is the black model. That’s why you don’t see the red chin, but there is a black chin.

  7. I’m dying for this to be released. I hate my G2 with a passion.

    1. Who hates the LG G2 and why?

      1. I hate LG’s UI, and I’m not a fan of rooting anymore. Just ends up taking too much effort, and with the evolution of hardware and android, I feel like I shouldn’t have to anymore. I’m not a fan of the button layout anymore. The proximity sensor is supposed to turn the screen off if the “knock on” turns the screen on in your pocket, but it never works, because I always pull out my phone to a random screen. The only time it works is when I try to turn the phone on and I leave my finger near the proximity sensor!
        Plus a handful of small things that add up to me really hating the phone.

        1. @disqus_MWBoAWxFG0:disqus Wow it sounds like you need an iPhone. Rooting is the easiest things to do now days, there are even “one-click root” methods available. Anyways you suck!!!

          1. I need an iPhone because I refuse to root my G2, even though I hate iOS, and love vanilla android..? Screw off

  8. Good no on screen buttons…

    1. As long as you don’t mind the phone being a half inch longer to accommodate them it can be seen as a good thing.

  9. Hopefully the rumours are true and the same phone is coming to Tmobile with a diff name, this will blow any phone out the water for 2014 but as an exclusive it is a major fail for domination…sigh when will Motorola learn :(…or maybe they are scared of being number 1…

  10. Quentyn, everyone else is reporting a 805 processor. Are you finding these reports credible? Or do you think its possibly an 801 or ??

  11. I already have to limit my music collection on my Moto X and use the Google Camera to limit photo and video size, so I looks like I’ll have to make further cuts to keep new music on the phone unless they make a 64GB version. I can probably partially blame Google for hurting the music industry. Considering the iPhone is competitive at 64GB, there’s no reason for Google or Motorola not to make a 64GB version if their phones anymore.
