Verizon has now confirmed that a new Android smartphone is about to make a debut on their line up. Given that rumour mills have recently been talking about the Motorola Droid Turbo, it looks like this is the smartphone that the US carrier is referring to.

According to a new report from PhoneArena, leaked benchmarks on Geekbench confirm earlier rumours that the Droid Turbo features the Snapdragon 805 (aka APQ8084) system chip running at up to 2.65GHz and 3GB of RAM.

PA adds that since results for the smartphone from Geekbench seem to be improving with time, it appears that Motorola might be putting some final optimisation touches. Currently, the devices have raked in a single-core score of 1068, and multi-core result of 2929, allowing it to easily sit on top of the charts.

If those peppy performance specs failed to woo you, then you should probably check out the smartphone's rumoured imaging package, which includes a 21-megapixel main camera, 32GB of internal storage, and wireless charging. For those of you who are looking for solid battery life, this smartphone will offer that as well thanks to its 3900mAh battery, which is one of the largest that has been used on a flagship smartphone to date.

Will you pick the Motorola Droid Turbo over the Nexus 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4? Let us know in the comments section below.
