Back in 2009, the Motorola Droid series had managed to gain success in the United States, but unfortunately only few of the prototype rarely arrives as a finished product. After unveiling the new Motorola Droid Mini and Ultra Maxx, the Google-owned mobile company seems to be strongly determined to renew the Droid series with a new model called Motorola Droid 5.

To date, we have no idea about the technical specification, but waiting to learn more from Chinese social-networking where the first “real” images of the device have surfaced.


From these images, it is easy to learn how the smartphone possesses a slide-out QWERTY keyboard that is rarity these days. Furthermore, there is a display of 4.5 inches, which seems to be bigger than the previous model. Thanks to the photo of the backside without cover, we learn the smartphone has the NFC chip.


According to sources, the device will be dust and water resistant, and probably will also feature wireless charging. The operating system will obviously latest Android version, and version is still a mystery.

Motorola Droid 5 is likely to be sold in the United States only, and will be exclusive to Verizon again. Personally, I would appreciate if Motorola brings out a slider in any case once again!
