The Verizon Droid Turbo was released last year with an off-contract price of $600. Now, six months after its release, the Droid Turbo is available with an attractive price cut on its on-contract and off-contract prices.
According to Droid Life, Verizon is now selling the 32 GB Droid Turbo with a price cut of $100. It is now priced at $499 off-contract. The offer is valid on all color variants: black, red and ballistic nylon. These models are available on Verizon with a two-year contract price of $99.
The 64 GB Droid Turbo is also available with a discount of $150 on its regular price of $700. It is now available for $550 off-contract. However, the deal is only applicable on the ballistic nylon color variant. The device is available with an on-contract price of $150.
The Droid Turbo is a Motorola product that features flagship-like specs. With a splash resistant body, the Droid Turbo features a 5.2-inch display screen with support for Quad HD resolution and pixel density of 565 ppi. The device is powered by Snapdragon 805 chipset that also powers up the Galaxy Note 4. The chipset is supported by 3 GB of RAM.
It is devoid of an external microSD slot. On its rear, there is a 21 MP camera along with dual-LED flash. The front features a 2 MP camera. It is packed with a host of connectivity features like the 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, GPS and more. It is equipped with a humungous battery of 3,900 mAh capacity.
According to Droid Life, even though the Verizon Droid Turbo is an excellent smartphone, it has not been updated with Android Lollipop OS. The device comes shipped with Android v4.4.4 KitKat. Another Droid Life post claims that the Droid Turbo will be directly updated to Android 5.1 Lollipop by skipping the Android 5.0 Lollipop update.
On May 8, Motorola had released an official tweet it is working with Verizon to upgrade the device to Lollipop 5.1. After upgrading to the latest firmware, Verizon users will be able to enjoy VoLTE support on the Droid Turbo.
