Motorola has launched its latest flagship smartphone, the Droid Turbo, at a Verizon Wireless event. At the unveiling Verizon focused on the device’s 3,900 mAh battery that it claimed provided a battery life of up to 48 hours per charge. Verizon added that users can get eight hours of battery life in 15 just minutes by using a special turbo charger sold with the phone. The Android-powered Droid Turbo comes with a 2.7GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a 21MP camera with dual-LED flash and 4K video. The device also includes a 5.2-inch, quad-HD display and supports Verizon’s “XLTE” AWS network, which promises twice the bandwidth of traditional 4G LTE.
The 32GB version comes in three colours – metallic black, metallic red and ballistic nylon – and costs USD 199 on contract. A high-end 64GB ballistic nylon version costs USD 249. The phone will be available exclusively on Verizon Wireless on 30 October.
