The Original DROID smartphone is long known as the device that started the Android craze, and it doesn’t look like Verizon’s ready to kill off the original slider keyboard smartphone yet. According to Chinese blogger from Weibo, the above images showcase the upcoming Verizon Motorola DROID 5.
From the photos above, we can instantly tell that the DROID 5 will have on-screen buttons, which is a depart from the recently released DROID Ultra/Maxx. It looks like the DROID 5 will have NFC support as well as wireless charging. Obviously included as well is a 5-row QWERTY keyboard, which looks really spacious.
Screen size wise, the display looks somewhere in between 4.5-4.7 inches. No screen resolution was reported, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Motorola decided to stick a 720p display on the phone, as well as throwing in a few touchless control features onto the device.
What do you guys think? Should the QWERTY keyboard smartphones live on or should they be completely killed off?
