Alleged Motorola Droid 5 Leaked Images
Motorola doesn’t seem to let go of the sliding keyboard. According to images posted on Chinese social network Weibo, Motorola has a new smartphone in its pipeline for Verizon. The DROID 5 is rumored to continue the DROID 4’s tradition and sport a 5-row slide-out QWERTY keyboard with a larger 4.3- or 4.5-inch screen. It is also said to support wireless charging and NFC. The photos show Verizon’s logo and it wouldn’t be surprising if the DROID 5 also supported the carrier’s 4G LTE network, considering its predecessor did likewise.
Suspiciously, the device seen in the images is running a rather outdated version of Android 4.0.3, so it’s tough to say how old this alleged Droid 5 actually is.
It would be interesting if it will also run on the same X8 Computing System that powers the latest Motorola DROIDs as well as the Moto X, giving it features like Touchless Controls and Active Display notifications.
There’s is no news on the availability of the Droid 5, but it is expected to make its first appearance to the Verizon’s lineup. However that being the case we would also love for the company to start showing interest in India operations once again, that simply seems unlikely for the time being.
