The upcoming DROID Turbo 2 has been subject to a variety of leaks, giving us all sorts of details–shatterproof display, massive battery, and so on–before the unveiling in a couple of days. This next leak shows just how outrageous the branding is going to be on this device, as we have become accustom to on DROID products.
Pictured above is a gallery of devices. The first three units are the allegedly the DROID Turbo 2, and the following two are the DROID MAXX.
For some reason, on the DROID Turbo 2, Verizon has decided to slap its signature check mark logo at the base device between two split speakers. This is, of course, not the first time Verizon has gone with this in-your-face branding. It was subject to the Galaxy S4 Mini years ago as well:
There was quite a bit of outrage surrounding this branding on the Galaxy S4 Mini way back when, and we haven’t really seen it since, until now.
Keep in mind that leaks like these aren’t always accurate, so it’s wise to take it with a grain of salt. However, the leakster, Evan Blass, is a credible source and has been right in the past, making us think this could very possibly be the final device. It’s also very similar to the image Verizon leaked just yesterday.
What do you think of Big Red’s giant check mark on the DROID Turbo 2? Is it overkill?

A new report by way of Android Police says that a few of its trusted sources indicates that the new Huawei Nexus 6P will come in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB storage options.
Smartphones traditionally come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB storage options, but interestingly, last year’s Nexus 6 was only available in 32GB and 64GB variants. 16GB is slowly going the way of the dinosaur, as it doesn’t offer enough storage to meet a user’s standard needs.
This news would make the Huawei Nexus 6P the first Nexus device to offer a massive 128GB model. However, it does come with its caveats. It is unlikely that Huawei will include microSD support in this upcoming device, according to sources close to Android Police. Those interested in a 128GB variant can expect to pay a $ 50-100 premium for this larger storage capacity.
It’d be expected that LG would provide the Nexus 5X in similar storage options, however, it’s highly possible we’ll only see the device in 32GB and 64GB storage options.
Google has scheduled an event for September 29 in San Francisco, where we expect all to be revealed. Only a few more weeks to go before we see the next big thing from Google!
