According to “people familiar with the matter,” the Droid Turbo will be the only Droid smartphone released this year. Reportedly equipped with a 4.6-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 piexls, the Droid Turbo will allegedly be powered by a 2.65GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor that is paired with 3GB of RAM.

Also on deck is Android 4.4.4 KitKat, a 20-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front camera, and 32GB of internal storage. While there is no information on the battery, Motorola’s Droid Landing Twitter page posted the following message:

While the small screen size with such a high resolution understandably brings this rumor into question, Verizon’s Droid line of smartphones is due for a refresh. If it happens, then the Droid Turbo might just be that refresh.
