Manual confirms 5.2" QHD display and Qi wireless support

We learned last month that Motorola plans to resurrect the Droid name for an impressive flagship model: the Droid Turbo. Now, we have even further proof of the new device courtesy of its leaked instruction manual.
 
MotoFirmware.com managed to grab the 73-page manual that details a device that will be exclusive to the Verizon Wireless network. The manual confirms some that the Droid Turbo will feature a 5.2” QHD display, 21MP rear camera, and a “high-capacity long lasting battery.”

 
Speaking of the battery, the Droid Turbo supports Qi wireless charging and supports Motorola’s Turbo Charger (which is included in the retail packaging with the smartphone).
 
The manual also revealed that popular Motorola software features like Moto Assist, Moto Voice, Motorola Connect, and Moto Actions have also made the cut on the Droid Turbo.
 
All we need now is confirmation on the hardware inside the device, although early speculation is that the Droid Turbo will feature a Snapdragon 805 processor with 3GB of RAM, putting it well ahead of the current “flagship” Moto X.

The folks over at Droid-Life did some digging and came to the conclusion that the Droid Turbo will feature a massive 3900 mAh battery. This far surpasses even the 3500 mAh battery that was included in the previous generation Droid Maxx, but falls short of the 4,000 mAh battery used in the QHD-packin' Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro.

An official Motorola Twitter account dedicated to spreading the "good word" about Droid devices posted the following image of the Droid Turbo before deleting the tweet.
