Motorola DROID 5 open leak

Physical keyboard lovers got a nice surprise late last month when a set of photos revealed the existence of the Motorola DROID 5, a new model in Moto and Verizon's long-running DROID series of QWERTY phones. Details on the device were light at the time, but today a new set of leaked images has shed more light on the upcoming landscape slider and what features it might include when it arrives under the thumbs of keyboard addicts.

The new photos, posted to Sina Weibo by user Ping Jinxun, show the Motorola DROID 5 being compared to the Photon Q 4G LTE that launched on Sprint in 2012. The DROID 5 features the same 4.3-inch screen size as its brother from another CDMA mother, but the DROID's display is higher-res (1280x720 compared to 960x540) and sports much thinner side bezels. Other purported features of the DROID 5 include a dual-core MSM8960 processor, 8-megapixel camera, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, NFC and wireless charging.

Those rumored specs may not make the DROID 5 the most high-end handset around, but because the physical QWERTY smartphone has become an endangered species, fans of the form factor will have to take what they can get. Even with its modest spec sheet, though, the DROID 5 looks like a nice upgrade over its predecessors thanks to its thinner bezels and higher-res display. We're still missing the D5's all-important launch and pricing information, but stay tuned and I'll update you when we hear more. Until then, a few more DROID 5 photos can be found at the Weibo link below.
