CHICAGO, IL- Motorola Inc. (NASDAQ: MSI) The Lenovo-owned company has issued invites for its Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx handsets launch event, set for October 27th.
Motorola has been dominating the smartphone rumor mill, as predictions for the release date of the Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 handsets can be found in all major technology blogs.
Today, the company finally sheds some light onto the mystery, as it has issued invitations for an October 27th event- which is nine days from today. The card does not divulge any specific info, such as the devices model; it only mentions the Droid tag, which is the name of Motorola’s premier phone line-up. The event will be held in New York City at 11 a.m.
Info currently available suggests that the Droid Turbo, Motorola’s flagship smartphone, will be packing a 5.43-inch QHD display (which is 0.23 inches larger than the original Turbo), a Snapdragon 810 SoC (MSM8994) accompanied by 3GB of RAM, and two storage options; 32GB and 64GB. Camera wise, the primary camera, located on the back, is said to shoot at 21-megapixels, while the secondary, located on the front, will be a 5-megapixel one.
To accommodate the brilliant -yet rumored- 5.43-inch QHD display, Motorolla will be reportedly including a 3760mAh battery, which sounds fair enough for the particular spec sheet.
The Droid 2 Turbo will ostensibly be compatible with the company’s Moto Maker. In case you are not familiar, Moto Maker is a service that allows customers to customize the body of their devices (engrave a word on it etc.), as well as pick their own combination of colors -before purchasing the device of course.
When it comes to the mid-range Droid Maxx 2, not much has been disclosed so far. Though, it was mentioned in the description of Moto Email, a standalone email client that the company released a few days back, exclusively for its devices. In addition to that, the device was briefly included in the Chromecast support page as well.
