Verizon, as expected over the last few weeks, today announced the newest member of its Droid family. Arriving tomorrow, October 30, the Droid Turbo is the most powerful Android handsets to date.

Powered by Android 4.4.4 KitKat, the Droid Turbo boasts a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, 21-megapixel rear camera, and 32GB/64GB internal storage. In keeping with its namesake, the smartphone packs a 3900mAh battery which can be charged with up eight hours of power in 15 minutes. Toss in the quad-core 2.7GHz Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB RAM and you’ve got a veritable monster.

Go up to 48 hours without stopping to recharge thanks to a 3900mAH battery, one of the largest ever put in a smartphone.

Additional hardware features include NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and a host of sensors. Like other Motorola Droid models, this one also offers a water-resistant coating to protect against life’s splashes.

The 32GB Droid Turbo will be sold in three color options (Metallic Black, Metallic Red or Ballistic Nylon) for $199 with a two year service agreement. The 64GB model comes in Ballistic Nylon and retails for $249 with the same contract.
