Motorola Droid Turbo 3 Renders & A Few Specs Leaked

by Jed John 5

The Motorola Droid Turbo 2  was released in 2015 as a high-end Android beast available exclusively on US carrier- Verizon’s network. The device wasn’t gifted a successor this year but it seems Motorola is set to unveil a Droid Turbo 3 flagship some time soon, perhaps in 2017.

Renders of what is said to be the Motorola Droid Turbo 3 were leaked on Weibo recently accompanied by a couple of specs. Honestly, the renders look more like those of a concept device than a real smartphone, considering the sleek, well designed smartphone they reveal.

The device adopts an entirely different design from the 2015 Droid Turbo 2 and packs a rear camera with Hasselblad cresting by the side, an indication that the Droid Turbo 3’s camera will be manufactured by the Swedish camera manufacturer. In reality though, this is likely the same a concept design of the Turbo 3 by Motorola concept designer Tooooajk.


The leak also went ahead to reveal the Motorola Droid Turbo 3 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chip, even when the device will likely launch at a time flagships would have started getting the latest Snapdragon 835 chipsets. Other leaked specs include a 4GB RAM, 16MP rear camera manufactured by Hasselblad, and a front fingerprint sensor.

    Why 4gb? 2017 will be the year of 6gb while high end will be use 8gb. 4gb in 2016.

    • Slow development cycle.
      Early idea, long way to get things figured out.

    If the Turbo 3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset wouldn’t that make it slower then the Turbo 2’s 810? The 810 is Octocore 2.0 GHz and the 820 is only a quad core 2.2 GHz. I think I keep my Turbo 2 until I see some side by side loading videos

    I know this is super late but , the whole point of the Droid turbo was that it had awesome specs in a nearly indestructible (google CNET’s construction yard test and watch that it takes a pick ax to the face for the phone to finally go out in a blaze of glory). I was hoping this was where we were going with phones. The fact that I have to buy a phone for $799 (to get the same specs) and then buy a $60 case to get the same protection is dumb.

    Shock proofing phones, making them water proof , these are things that companies should be keeping in mind when making new phones. If they make a new one (which I don’t expect them to) I would expect the specs to look like this;

    Screen 5.4 (maybe shave off some bezel to make the over all phone smaller)
    Battery 3800 mAh
    Ram 4 gbs (or maybe a mobile version of Intel’s new optane drive which is both ssd and RAM)
    SSD 64Gbs
    Cpu Qualcomm Snapdragon 835
    Camera R: 21 Mp F 10mp (keep the dual flash and the front facing flash too)
    Sensors All the same with the addition of finger print reader (put it in the M logo on the back)

    Again I know this is super late but I really hope the phone in the photos is not the the new Turbo
