We’ve heard murmurs of Motorola’s upcoming Droid Turbo smartphone over the past few weeks, but haven’t heard or seen anything conclusive. But thanks to a new leak from Hello Moto HK, we now have a brief idea of what to expect from the upcoming Verizon Droid. Much like the Droid series from last year, the device has a Kevlar patterned back cover as well as “front-ported speakers” much like the new Moto X and the Moto G. The handset also supposedly has capacitive navigation keys on the bottom bezel instead...

So this handset will probably be similar to the Moto X, but with a few added carrier bloatware and some other features such as a Kevlar back pattern and a slightly changed design. Interestingly, the device is expected to be packing a large battery inside combined...

Punit Soni has been a familiar face in Motorola’s product announcements over the past few months. He was at the forefront of the Moto E launch and actively endorses the company’s products and software updates on social media. However, Soni has now decided to call it a day and leave Motorola Mobility. There’s no word on who will replace him as the VP of Product Management over at the company yet, but his departure has come as a surprise to many. He didn’t cite a specific reason for leaving the company, but had...
