The week building up to Motorola’s September 4th Event has been ridden with leaks with regard to Motorola’s devices.
First up, is the Moto Luge. This Motorola made device is heading to Verizon’s network. The Moto Luge was initially thought to be a brand new device which carried an uncanny resemblance to Motorola’s past RAZR device. However, it seems that the Moto Luge is, in fact, a repackaging and rebranding of the Moto RAZR M which was launched 2 years back which came with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus with a 4.3-inch qHD screen.
Next we have leaks of the DROID Turbo also headed to Verizon. The Motorola made DROID is looking to be quite the beast sporting a 1440×2560 pixel display measuring 4.59-inches. The device comes with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor clocked at 2.65 GHz with a 20-MegaPixel camera with a 2-Megapixel front facing camera with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. The device will reported be running Android 4.4 KitKat.
Finally, we have an update to Motorola’s Skip accessory which initially debuted with the Moto X. The Skip was a Near Field Communications (NFC) enabled accessory which helped bypass the lockscreen when your phone and the accessory are in close proximity. However, it seems like the new version will be using Bluetooth instead of NFC. The new Skip will also allow you to locate your phone by pressing the power button twice which will make your ring loud allowing you to locate your phone. In addition, it seems that this functionality may work both ways, with an app on your device allowing you to make the bluetooth enabled Skip accessory “ring”/beep when you need to locate it. If you’re like me and keep losing your keys, this feature may come in handy given that you attach the Skip to your keys.
