We’ve already heard a good bit about the DROID Turbo 2, the latest Motorola phone customized for Verizon’s US exclusive line. We’ve even been given a peek of at the device, which seems to be very similar to the latest iterations of the Moto X series. New details have been reported by Phandroid,and while we can’t confirm them, they seem like natural extensions of Motorola’s current market direction. Notably, the DROID Turbo 2 will reportedly get at least some of the same Moto Maker customization options that have been slowly expanding from the Moto X to other devices.
The exact nature of the Moto Maker customizations aren’t mentioned, though if the design is very similar to the Moto X you can probably expect a lot of the same choices. (Previous versions of the DROID series diverged from other Motorola designs quite a bit, but a more unified look would make economical sense if Moto Maker is going to be offered.) According to the rumor, Verizon customers will be able to order a DROID Turbo 2 directly from Motorola, and will also be given a one-time chance to order a free replacement if they’re unsatisfied with the choices they made.
Other details in the rumor include a full set of specs (5.43-inch QHD screen, Snapdragon 810 processor, 32/64GB of storage, 3GB of RAM, 21MP rear and 5MP front cameras, 3760mAh battery), and that the previously-rumored “unbreakeable” POLED display panel will be reinforced with metal sides. That last part has been a part of Motorola’s high-end design since the Moto X 2014, so it seems pretty reasonable. Reportedly the announcement will take place on October 15th with a retail release on the 29th.
Verizon and Motorola together are pretty poor secret-keepers, so more leaks should pop up between now and then. Notably, there’s been no more word of the DROID Maxx 2 that was rumored back in August.
