Initial images of the Droid 5 first leaked in August.

The images appear to show a phone with a screen that's between 4.3 and 4.7 inches. And even in an age of touch-screens the handset retains the line's trademark slide-out QWERTY keyboard. 

Rumors suggest the phone features wireless charging, 4G LTE compatibility and a design that's water and dust-proof, according to Phones Review.

And according to a new report the device will boast a 720p display. Under the hood it might be powered by a Snapdragon dual-core Krait chipset with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, rumors say.

Details about the Droid 5's release date remain scare, but reports suggest it may not see daylight until 2014.

The news comes hot on the heels of the release of three new touchscreen-only Droid devices from Motorola: the Droid Maxx, Droid Ultra and Droid Mini.

The Droid Mini shipped earlier this month.

Under the hood it's powered by a dual-core Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, Android Community reports. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It also boasts a 10 megapixel camera, Kevlar unibody and 2,000mAh battery.

Meanwhile the Droid Ultra and Maxx shipped Aug. 27 -- exactly one week past the previously promised shipping date of Aug. 20.

Under the hood the Ultra has a Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Its 7.8mm profile makes it the thinnest 4G LTE smartphone available.

The Droid Max boasts an identical processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. With an 8.5mm profile it's a bit bulkier than the Ultra.
