Verizon is in need of some new DROIDs, and Motorola is only happy enough to give it to them, it seems. The DROID branding, if you don’t remember, is a partnership between Verizon and Motorola, to give the carrier unique smartphones that will compete with flagships and the upper midrange market. We have to DROID phones incoming, the DROID Turbo 2 and the DROID Maxx 2.
The DROID Turbo 2 is interesting, and it has been called a number of things on the intarwebs – like the Moto X Force or or the code name “bounce” – all because it touts this shatterproof design. This leak all but confirms it, that Verizon will be marketing the shatterproof display, even accepting trade-ins for phones with cracked displays up to USD$300 towards your new DROID Turbo 2.
The DROID Maxx 2 is basically the Moto X Play for the US market, and it is touting a 48-hour battery life. The Moto X Play has official specs of a 3,630mAh battery, so the battery life should be right around over 24 hours. Now whether it reaches 48 hours is probably up to your usage. Verizon will apparently accept trade-ins for the DROID Maxx 2 as well.
Are you buying this shatterproof technology from Motorola? We’ll have to see some information on it, and it’s possible that Verizon or Motorola will put out a video of some sort to prove this shatterproof claim. Let’s wait for that to come out and give our verdict by then.
