Surprise surprise! Well no, but it’s a great option. Verizon’s Droid Turbo is now officially official, what with all the rumors, FCC filings, benchmarks and websites pre-launching earlier. But now it’s here and let me relate everything engadget’s sharing.
The Turbo (offered in red or black) has a 5.2-inch Quad HD AMOLED display covered in Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3, a Kevlar back, and an incredibly long battery life. Verizon advertised “up to” 48 hours of power and a quick charge feature that nets “up to 8 hours of use” from a 15-minute charge (hence the turbo name). A top of the line Snapdragon 805 processor packing a 2.7GHz quad-core CPU and an Adreno 420 CPU (running at 600MHz) handles graphics on that fancy Quad HD screen. 3GB of RAM handles memory, making all that processor useable. And here’s another treat for previous Droid owners who felt that one or more aspects fell short: A 21-megapixel camera, decent selfie cam and HD video capture. Those 48 hours you can possibly get? Thank the 3,900mAh battery jammed in there. Comes in 32GB ($199) or 64GB ($249) options.
Thinking about that battery?
