This is Motorola’s new “Kinzie” phone

Details for the next Motorola flagship device have leaked in two different iterations, one internationally, one domestic. The domestic version goes by codename "Kinzie" and is almost certainly headed for Verizon as a DROID device. Verizon will not release this device until later this year for more than one reason. The first reason is - they've just released new editions of the DROID Turbo right under our noses. The devices aren't all that different - they've just been given new paint jobs, so to speak.

Verizon’s DROID 2015 line leaked with curious details

Likely candidates for the whole 2015 Motorola DROID collection appear in a number of leaked documents. These devices will work with Verizon only inside the United States, appearing with code-name Clark for both models XT1578 and XT1097 and code-name Kinzie for model XT1585. These devices will be working with exceedingly sharp displays, one coming in at a DPI (dots per inch) value of 560, the other coming in with 640 DPI. Both devices will - obviously - be coming with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as well, with Motorola's very small amount of changes on top.

Rumor: Incoming DROID has 6-inch screen, Snapdragon 810

Motorola, who have quietly dominated the Android landscape in the last half of 2014, are reportedly at it again. This time, they’re rumored to be taking the Nexus 6 form factor, and re-branding it as a DROID. The new Verizon-only device would keep the 6-inch screen, but come with impressive new internals.

DROID Turbo gets leaked again, retail version this time

At this point only the official announcement from Verizon will put an end to the seemingly unending flow of leaks about the DROID Turbo. But given this is probably one of the most high-profile Motorola DROIDs of late, perhaps we can stretch our limits just a wee bit more. Showing off that the smartphone is indeed ready to take center stage, this latest, and maybe last, batch of leaked photos show the DROID Turbo once more, but this time snuggled inside its cozy retail packaging.

DROID Turbo outed again with more photos, name confirmation

With the Nexus devices already out of the way, we can now turn our focus again on the next big thing, at least as far as Verizon's customers are concerned. It is still a bit more than a week before the next DROID, the Motorola DROID Turbo, is unveiled to the public, but much of the smartphone's features has already been leaked. Today we get another set of leaks, this time of press photos for the device, but we are also getting a more solid piece of information: the smartphone's official name.

This afternoon a User Guide for the upcoming Verizon Motorola DROID Turbo has been leaked. If this guide is to be believed, the DROID Turbo is launching with a set of specifications that far exceeds the power and the abilities of the Moto X. This is a surprise, to be sure - why would Motorola out-do themselves so quickly after releasing their own flagship model? Is this Verizon’s doing, or is this guide a fake from the start?

Keep your Nexus 6, I’ll stick with Moto X

There’s really no good reason why you should wait for a 6-inch smartphone. Apple’s created a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, there are more than enough Samsung Galaxy Note devices in the world. What more could you possibly want? I tell you what I want - Motorola’s expertise in creating a smartphone that delivers well and above expectations. I want a Moto X with a wooden backside.

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

Nexus 6 details and a DROID for Verizon

This morning we dug into the FCC documents for Motorola’s next big release. Really big, as it were - a full 6-inches of display to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the iPhone 6 Plus. We’ve heard rumors that Google would pick up Motorola’s next big release as a "Nexus 6", working with 6-inches of display. We’ve also heard that Verizon would be getting the device on their carrier. What we hadn’t heard so far - but what we can basically (nearly) confirm without Motorola saying so is that Verizon’s model will be the same, but with DROID branding.
