DroidLanding site teases October 28th reveal date for the Motorola DROID Turbo


droidlanding teaser countdown

We’ve been hearing more and more about the Motorola DROID Turbo headed for Verizon as of late, and now the company is starting to tease their own wares in a big way. The DroidLanding site has been updated to tease a smartphone announcement with a countdown that points to October 28th at 12pm eastern. That’s 14 days from now as of the time of this writing. It’s nice to know that we won’t have to wonder whether this is a trick or a treat before Halloween arrives.

The site obviously doesn’t reveal much other useful info, though we can ponder on a couple of things. For starters, some of the teaser text suggests the device could be made available the very same day it’s announced. Text below the countdown timer reads “Launch Date Set. All will be revealed. Sign up for activation information.”

The key takeaway here is “launch date,” though it’s tough to tell what Verizon means by “launch.” Some carriers and OEMs refer to a device’s official unveiling as its launch even though the phone might not be immediately available. We’ll have to wait for that day to arrive to see which definition Verizon goes by.

The other thing to take away is the shadowy figure of the device itself. It certainly looks quite close to the renders and leaks we’ve seen in terms of design, so there should be no surprises as to what it looks like once Verizon takes the wraps off.

And if rumors of its specs are accurate, we should have a good idea of what to expect under the hood, as well:

  • Snapdragon 805 chipset
  • 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 display
  • 21 megapixel camera with dual LED flash
  • 3,900mAh battery with Motorola’s Turbo Charge feature
  • NFC

Sounds like the makings of a great smartphone befitting of the classic DROID name, but we’ll have to wait for full details before crowning this bad boy. Thankfully we won’t have long to wait to be filled in on the rest.

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. It’ll be a reveal with a vague launch date of “before the holidays”.

    1. Verizon is usually pretty good with making their Droid line phones available soon after announcements.

      1. You’re getting my hopes up… Please dont :/

  2. Does anyone find it odd that in all of this leaked data, we have nothing about the storage size? 16gb? 32gb? 64gb?

    I have a bad feeling that no MicroSD card to expand, and no mention of storage size is going to end up being an issue. IMHO, 32gb is not even enough these days so with no MicroSD – which is uber lame – it better at least on the low end be 32gb and they better offer a 64gb since no MicroSD.

    1. Couldn’t agree more. If there isn’t a 64gb option, seeing as there is no microsd, then it doesn’t matter how good the rest of the specs are. Gotta provide the basics first.

      1. Agreed. No MicroSD so they better come out swinging with larger storage at 32gb and above or this is going to be an issue for this “flagship” phone.

  3. Aghhh, I’ve been holding out on the Moto X for so long. This thing would totally be worth it too, but idk about those capacitive buttons…

  4. I love the specs, the resolution is too high, but otherwise this is likely my next phone.
