Even though we should take the leaked photos coming from China with a pinch of salt, it seems that we are looking at the Motorola Droid 5 model, a new Android-powered smartphone that packs a QWERY slider. If the photos are the real-deal, it seems that Motorola is readying a Droid 4 follow-up, developing a QWERTY Android slider phone, even though the format is no longer popular among the users who now prefer the full touch experience.
The Droid 4 was announced in January 2012 and as things stand it seems that it will be soon followed by Droid 5, also coming with a 5-row full QWERTY slide-out keyboard. Verizon recently launched the LG Enact model, which also comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, so it seems that there are still enough customers on the niche.
Engaget writes that the Motorola Droid 5 will have a ” screen in the 4.3-inch to 4.5-inch range,” but since the leaked handset closely follows the design of the recent Droid handsets, we will rather see a 4.5+ inch HD display fitted on it.
Reports are indicating that the Motorola Droid 5 will also come with support for wireless charging, NFC module, and even an ultra-resistant body.
Not long ago, the Motorola CEO said that the company he run is panning to launch a couple more terminals by the end of October and the Droid 5 might be one of them. Will we see it in flesh at IFA Berlin 2013 next week?
