Motorola Droid Turbo and Moto S photos leak

Motorola has been in the news with many new releases this month, including the Moto 360, Moto G, Moto X and Moto Hint devices. The company is also rumored to be working on the Nexus 6 (X) smartphone and the Motorola Droid Turbo and Moto S handsets, so people are getting more and more interested in the former Google-owned company.

The previous leak concerning the Motorola Droid Turbo stated that the device would have a 4.6 inc QHD display, Snapdragon 805 CPU, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, 20 MP rear camera and Android KitKat on board. Newer rumors are different though, saying that the Motorola Droid Turbo will have a 5.2 inch QHD display, 14402560* resolution, quad core Snapdragon 805, 3 GB RAM, 20 MP rear shooter with dual LED flash and 2 MP front shooter.

So far, the only thing that differs from previous rumors is the display size. In addition to these specs, the Motorola Droid Turbo will also sport front-facing stereo speakers and fast recharging abilities. The Motorola Droid Turbo charging system will probably be similar to that of the Moto X, with a 15 minute charge providing 8 hours of battery life for the device. Rumors also say that the design of the Motorola Droid Turbo will be gravitating more towards the Motorola Moto X design rather than previous Droid designs, except for the Kevlar. We suspect the Motorola Droid Turbo will sport at least a 3300 mAH battery.

The Motorola Moto S has also sprung up in various rumors, and many are speculating that the Moto S is actually the new Nexus 6 device from Google. That’s not confirmed though, so we might be looking at two similar devices in the form of the Motorola Moto S and Nexus 6 code-named Shamu. The Moto S sports a 5.9 inch display, according to rumors, but that’s all we can tell from the leaked back panel that has shown up courtesy of HellomotoHK. Since the rumored Motorola Nexus 6 might also have a 5.9 inch display, the assumption that the Moto S is in fact the Nexus 6 isn’t far fetched. Nonetheless, the Nexus 6 might also have a 5.2 inch or a 5.7 inch screen, according to different sources. Thus, we can safely say that we don’t know anything for sure.

Although the Motorola Droid Turbo is a confirmed handset that will be Verizon exclusive, we can’t say the same about the mysterious Moto S handset. According to rumors and reports, the Motorola Droid Turbo will be launched by the time the holiday season hits, so we’re sure we’ll be getting our hands on more information about the handset by then. In the case of the Motorola Moto S, we will find out whether it is actually the Nexus 6 in October, probably on the 16th, when the Nexus 6 is supposed to be announced. If the Nexus 6 turns out to be a different device than the Moto S, at least we will know what to expect from each handset.
