If you were waiting to get your hands on the rumoured Moto Turbo 2, you don’t have to wait for too long. Motorola and Verizon have sent out press invites for an event scheduled for October 27 in which it would unveil the “newest Droids”. As evident from the wording, the Moto Turbo 2 wouldn’t be the only Droid handset to be launched for Verizon this month.
While the invite (via The Verge) says very little about the new Droid handsets the company has planned to unveil at the event, if recent leaks and rumours are to be believed, the forthcoming handsets could be the Droid Turbo 2 and the Droid Maxx 2. The former is a top-of-the-line handset while the latter is likely a mid-range handset.
As per previous reports, the Moto Droid Turbo 2 will sport a 5.43-inch QHD display (up from 5.2-inch QHD screen in the original Turbo), a Snapdragon 810 SoC (MSM8994) coupled with 3GB of RAM, and a storage option of 32GB and 64GB. Alongside a 21-megapixel rear camera, the Moto Droid Turbo 2 is said to have a 5-megapixel sensor. Also rumoured is a 3760mAh battery.
The same report also noted that the Droid Turbo 2 will support Moto Maker, company’s program that allows users to customise the body and select the colour of the handset and back cover, among other things, as they deem fit.
Not much is known about the Droid Maxx 2, sadly. However, the handset was recently mentioned in a screenshot for Moto Email, a standalone email client that Motorola released this week on Google Playexclusively for its handsets. Previously, the smartphone had also been briefly listed on the Chromecastsupport page.
