We wrote earlier this morning that the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is seemingly coming to the UK, despite being a “limited edition” niche concept phone (with a suitably lofty price tag).
Alas, it’s not such good news as pertains to the Droid Turbo super-phone, as Motorola France says the handset won’t be released in Europe. Should you care? Yeah, probably.
The indirect announcement was made casually in a tweeted response to an @Motorola _France follower, however, interestingly, the tweet has since been deleted.
A Google Translation of the cached tweet reads: “This smartphone will unfortunately not (be) available in Europe!”
We wonder if that means there are no plans to bring the Droid Turbo to Europe at present. Why else would the tweet be deleted?
To be honest, we didn’t expect the Droid Turbo to wander too far from the US, where it’s currently a Verizon exclusive. It will, however, hit Latin America as the Motorola Moto Maxx.
And here’s what we’re missing out on: Droid Turbo specs include a 5.2in QHD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB internal storage, a 21MP rear camera, and a colossal 3,900mAh battery.
Naturally, because we can't have it, we want it RIGHT NOW. Alas, we’ll have to make do with the slightly more modest Motorola Moto X 2014, or the bloody massive Google Nexus 6. Nyoh.
