Beautiful concept design is what we hope the Lenovo Droid Turbo 3 will look like

While the likes of the Moto X, Moto Z, and Moto G have become staples of the Moto brand, they aren’t the only phones bearing the now-Lenovo-owned name. The Droid Turbo 2, for example, was launched late last year with some pretty excellent specs. And now it looks like the Droid Turbo 3 is on the way. While we have almost no information about the phone, we do have this beautiful concept design.

We previously thought we had leaked renders of the upcoming device, but it now seems as though those renders are in fact a concept design created by Toooajk. Still, considering how beautiful they are, we certainly wouldn’t complain if they ended up being real.

The images themselves were spotted on Chinese social media site Weibo, and show the device with a Hasselblad camera sensor and a super-sleek and stylish look that departs quite a bit from Lenovo’s current Moto-branded phones.

As you can see in the renders, the device seems to be aimed more at offering a sleek look that would suit a businessperson. It also appears that the phone would support Moto Mods, and a basic cover mod shows up in some of the renders.

Unfortunately, the renders really only show the back of the upcoming phone. We also don’t have any tech specs for the phone yet, beyond the 16MP camera sensor.

It’s still unclear if Lenovo is even working on a Droid Turbo 3, but if  so — and if previous Turbo phones are anything to go by — the device will offer some flagship-level specs. We should expect to see the Snapdragon 821 processor, at least 4GB of RAM, and plenty of storage. Last year’s Droid Turbo 2 boasted a Snapdragon 810 processor with 3GB of RAM and a hefty 3,760mAh battery. That device was launched in October 2015, so if there does end up being a Droid Turbo 3, we’re expecting it to be announced sooner rather than later.

It’s the phone equivalent of a Bentley. So why does the Pixel 3 look like a VW?
Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL

The Google Pixel 2 phones looked boring. Google has half-fixed the problem in 2018 for the Pixel 3, but still hasn't quite cracked the case, and this could be a problem.

Apple is constantly called out for its expensive hardware, but when you hold an iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max, they feel every bit of the $1,000-plus it cost, regardless of what angle you view it from. The same can be said of the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and Galaxy Note 9.

The best Moto Z3 cases to keep your flagship phone protected
Moto Z3 review

You might have missed the Moto Z3's reveal, as it was cunningly disguised as the Moto Z3 Play. But even though the Z3 looks identical to its lower-powered sibling, the innards of the device are better. It's packing last year's Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a Super AMOLED display -- all for just $480. As if that wasn't enough, the Z3 also gives you access to Motorola's great range of Moto Mods, that can turn your phone into a snappier camera, boombox, or -- new for the Z3 -- a 5G-equipped downloading machine.

But just because all this hardware comes at a bargain price doesn't mean it's a throwaway device. It's made from aluminum, sandwiched between glass -- and as we know, that can make for a fragile device. Keep it covered and protected with the best Moto Z3 cases.

Pop quiz: Name a phone with a notch above the screen and a vertical camera array that's offset to one side on the back. That’s right, it’s the Motorola P30, a midrange handset just released in China.

Of course, we didn’t really just mean the Motorola phone when we asked our question -- that’s just us being silly. We meant the Xiaomi Mi A2. Or the Vivo V9. Or the Huawei P20 Lite. Or any number of other phones that borrow their design from the Apple iPhone X. Motorola has joined that group, and here’s what we know about the P30 so far.
