Motorola Droid Turbo guide leaks, reveals specs like monster 21MP camera

It’s not often that we find ourselves really excited about new Droid models – the combination of Verizon exclusivity and existence of other compelling Motorola phones (like the new Moto X and G) without such carrier restrictions has cost the Droid name some of its acclaim in recent years. But this year we’ve been following rumors of a Droid Turbo that, while they started off without much of a bang, have been snowballing into a more and more interesting story. We’ve been looking forward to a possible launch sometime this month, and today a new leak arrives to shed maybe more light than ever before on the Droid Turbo, as the phone’s Verizon user guide leaks.

As a user guide, rather than a spec sheet or press release, we don’t get an exhaustive list of the hardware’s capabilities, but the details that are present here have very much managed to catch out attention. Chief among those is the phone’s main camera, revealed to rock a quite high-res 21MP sensor. And just like we saw on leaked pics from last month, that Moto X-style dual LED flash is indeed present.

Other features we see confirmed are wireless Qi charging, apparently baked right in, and support for all the Moto Voice/Assist/Display/Actions we know from the company’s other Androids.

A specific launch date continues to remain a mystery (and the DroidLanding Twitter account has been unhelpfully silent for over a month at this point), but this one really feels like it’s ready to go live nearly any day now. The document includes screen shots referring to October 12, but with that date falling on a Sunday, we’re not sure if it’s a viable launch candidate.
