We recognize Motorola is making plans to rebrand the Moto Y Play in the United States because the Motorola DROID Maxx 2 for Verizon. But as opposed to the identify, now not so much else concerning the telephone’s exact hardware will amendment. As for the nonetheless rumored Motorola DROID Turbo 2 — also a Verizon Wireless unique — if final yr’s type is any indication, we’re anticipating the telephone to obtain a couple of hardware revisions in order to split it from the remainder of Motorola’s software portfolio and become the most productive telephone Motorola can muster up.
Now, it used to be just a little over every week in the past we informed you men concerning the DROID Turbo 2 coming equipped with an “unbreakable display,” however instead of that distinctive hardware function, we weren’t positive what Motorola had deliberate for the telephone. Today, @upleaks is revealing new information about a telephone they’re calling the the Motorola Bounce (we’re assuming the interior codename for the Turbo 2) at the side of a couple of key hardware specs at the telephone and an early press render (above).
Motorola Bounce (DROID Turbo 2)
- 5.43-inch QHD “Shatterproof” show
- Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 processor
- 32GB/64GB inner garage choices
- 3GB RAM
- 21MP/5MP cameras
- 3,760mAh battery (that’s larger than the Y Play’s)
Looking on the leaked mockup, the layout of the telephone seems to be extra Y Play than Y Style, no less than at the again besides. It’s tricky to make out, however the facets are utterly immediately and don’t seem to taper off close to the corners like at the Y Style and Play (one thing we adore cuz it will have to make for a extra simply gripable telephone). With a rumored shatterproof show, we’re pondering if those facets aren’t also a few more or less thick rubber for additonal coverage (therefore the “Bounce” inside codename) however that may be a stretch.
You’ll also realize the entrance of the telephone is appearing a few very fascinating sensor placement, with a couple of alongside the ground bezel the place a speaker is oddly absent. That shouldn’t be too unexpected, ultimate yr’s DROID Turbo handiest had a unmarried entrance dealing with speaker alongside the highest as smartly. But the place the unique DROID Turbo featured capacitive buttons at the backside bezel, this one seems to be the use of on-monitor keys.
We’ve reached out to our personal touch and even if they weren’t in a position to ensure the authenticity of the above render (it can be a fan render), we have been advised it’s spot on for probably the most phase. While we have been hoping the telephone may launch in past due October as the unique DROID Turbo, @upleaks says the telephone is taking a look at a December launch. Bummer. Also, whether or not or now not there might be a GSM model of the DROID Turbo 2 for different areas is still noticed.
