Verizon on Thursday announced the immediate availability of its latest smartphone, a refreshed take on the Motorola Droid Turbo.

Sold online and in Verizon retail stores, the Sapphire Blue Ballistic Nylon variant carries the same price tag as the black and red models launched in late 2014. Specifically, the Droid Turbo sells for $200 with a two-year service agreement or $24.99 per month over two years on Verizon Edge.

Color aside, the main draw of the Droid Turbo is its fast charging capabilities. Plug the handset in for fifteen minutes and you'll have enough juice for eight more hours of battery. Other specifications include a 21-megapixel rear camera, 5.2-inch display, and 2.7 GHz quad-core processor.

Verizon is currently offering new customers $100 for signing up with a Verizon Edge plan. Additionally, the carrier will toss in another $100 credit for trading in an old smartphone toward the purchase of the Droid Turbo.
