While we are still a bit carried away by the recently released Moto X by Motorola, this company didn’t stop working for a moment. New report shows that Motorola will upgrade its Droid smartphone line with a new device that will be called Motorola Droid 5. Google’s acquisition started to pay off after a year and we can finally see Motorola like it was few years ago. This report about the Droid 5 comes after leaked images showed up on Weibo, a social network in China.
According to the source, the Google-owned company has started to develop a new device that will follow the Droid’s models and has a QWERTY keyboard that slides out. From the images, we can see that there won’t be any physical buttons on the front of the device and the keyboard will have 5 rows. The backside picture of the device shows the camera lens with a flash. We could notice the Verizon logo which indicates that this phone will be offered through Verizon. It wasn’t revealed if any other U.S carrier will offer this QWERTY smartphone.
Weibo wasn’t the only source that had information about this new smartphone. A blog called New Cell Phones has reported some specs which will be featured in this new smartphone by Motorola. The Droid 5 could be equipped with a 4.5-inch or a 4.3-inch screen with QWERTY sliding keyboard. It will support wireless charging, NFC and it will come out as dust and water resistant. This source hasn’t unveiled further details.
We can expect it to feature similar specs like the Moto X. This recently launched high-end device has a 4.7-inch screen that offers 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. Under the hood, there is a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor which is clocked at 1.7GHz. Alongside this powerful processor, you will find 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage capacity. The rear camera has a 10-mpix sensor alongside the LED Flash and secondary front-facing camera with 2-mpix.
We can expect the new Droid 5 to run on the latest Android OS version. We’ve seen that all users want thin and light smartphones and given that the Droid 5 will feature a QWERTY sliding keyboard, we could expect the opposite. However, let’s not make any conclusions before we see it available on the market.
We will keep you updated with reliable information related to this device and its official release. In the meantime, you can use the comments section below to share your expectations of this Motorola Droid 5.
