Lenovo has a press event coming up on June 9th when it is expected they will reveal their new flagship devices. Reports indicate they will be rebranding their line, rooted in the Motorola Moto X series, as the Moto Z. One thing that does not appear to be changing is the relationship with Verizon to produce a dedicated DROID device that is essentially the top of the line phone from their portfolio, but rebadged for the carrier.

Earlier today we reported on some leaked images that appear to show this year’s variant of the Moto X and the Verizon Droid branded version of the device. At the time, we noted some dots on the back of the device that we thought may be some type of support for a dock. It turns out that Lenovo may have something more significant planned for the new devices as sources now indicate the dots are actually connectors for a series of modular, swappable backplates providing all sorts of additional functions and hardware for the devices.

A new leak has revealed more details on the Moto X (2016) and a new Droid smartphone that are both allegedly set for a summer release.
The upcoming DROID Turbo 2 has been subject to a variety of leaks, giving us all sorts of details–shatterproof display, massive battery, and so on–before the unveiling in a couple of days. This next leak shows just how outrageous the branding is going to be on this device, as we have become accustom to on DROID products.
A new image has surfaced on the Facebook page for hellomotoHK which purports to show the back side of four forthcoming Motorola devices. The image claims to show a Droid “Mini” device, the third generation Moto G, a new Droid device, and a third generation Moto X. Assuming the information is accurate, the Droid devices should be hitting Verizon sometime this fall adorned with what appears to be a Kevlar inspired design for the back cover.
Considering how some of the lines are not aligned, the image may be a rather poorly done PhotoShop. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Now that summer is almost here, it’s time to start thinking about what Motorola has in store. They usually announce their products in the late summer to early fall. Of course, we know there will be a new Moto X and a new Moto 360, but let’s not forget about the Verizon exclusive DROIDs. Last year, Verizon chose to go with one DROID, the DROID Turbo. In previous years, they did offer multiple models, and it looks like they might adopt that strategy again this year.
The DROID Turbo has been on the market for just over one month, but Verizon is not allowing Motorola to slow down production. Sometime next year, likely around the summer, Motorola will release a DROID device that matches and surpasses the Nexus 6 and its specifications. There is a chance, though, that the device ditches DROID branding and joins the Moto line.
Verizon’s big DROID unveiling is coming up on Tuesday, but it looks like we won’t have to wait until then to see the Droid Turbo in its packaging. The device, which has a 5.2-inch 2560 x 1440 resolution IPS display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 procesor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 3900 mAh and either Android 4.4.4 or 5.0 Lollipop. (Conflicting reports on OS version exist.)
Nothing really special or noteworthy to see here, other than the fact that we’re coming closer and closer to the release of a new DROID device. Hit the break for more pictures below.
Today isn’t all about HTC news. We’re seeing some for the DROID Turbo with news in a leaked user manual from motofirmware. According to the manual we’re seeing a 5.2-inch qHD display, a 21 MP camera, multiple microphones, capacitive buttons, Qi wireless charging with Motorola’s Turbo charging. But that’s not it.
Since the @DroidLanding Twitter account was spotted as active again earlier this month, the hunt has been on for more information about what Verizon has planned for their Droid line of devices. New reports indicate Verizon will release a single Droid device this year, built by Motorola, that will come with a fast charging battery as its distinguishing feature. Motorola, which has an exclusive contract to produce the Droid devices for Verizon, appears to have this single model planned for this year, a change from the last two cycles when three devices were released each time.
Verizon’s Droid line is unique for the carrier in that most manufacturers now make their devices available across multiple carriers. Nevertheless, Verizon apparently sees value in the franchise as some customers still seek the Droid brand.
