Is This The Motorola Droid 5?

motorola droid 5 leak

If you want a good, fast 4G LTE phone with an actual physical keyboard on Verizon your options are pretty limited. You can either get the BlackBerry Q10 or Motorola Droid 4. Motorola and Verizon recently released three new Droids– the Droid Mini (an update to last years Droid RAZR M that adds a nicer 720p HD screen, faster processor and 10 megapixel camera), Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx (both the Maxx and Ultra have larger 5 inch 720p HD screens and the same improved camera and processor as the Mini. The Maxx also adds a larger battery that can last up to two days on a charge). While those Droids are nice, none of them have physical QWERTY keyboards. The last Droid to have a physical keyboard was the Droid 4, which is a good phone but one that is over one and half years old (it was released in February 2012). Many thought that since Verizon hasn’t updated that Droid in so long meant that the era of keyboard Droids was over. Well, if these latest rumors are right, Verizon and Motorola may be planning another QWERTY keyboard Droid, the Droid 5.

The new Droid 5 looks to be pretty nice upgrade. Rumors are it will pack either a 4.3 or 4.5 inch HD screen (up from 4 inches on the Droid 4), have a thinner design that’s water and dust resistant, and packĀ support for NFC and wireless charging. And of course it has that full slide-out QWERTY keyboard. We also would expect it to have a faster processor and better camera than the Droid 4.All in all, not a bad upgrade.

No word on when Motorola and Verizon would release this new Droid or how much it would cost, but if you’re someone who still likes using a real keyboard know that Verizon and Motorola haven’t forgotten about you just yet.
