Verizon Wireless and Motorola today announced the Droid Turbo 2, an Android smartphone that claims to be shatterproof. Motorola says its engineers and designers built a rugged handset from the inside out over the course of several years. The shatter shield technology has 5 layers that absorb shock and protect against breakage. The first is a rigid aluminum core, followed by a flexible AMOLED display, with a dual-touch layer for redundancy, and an interior shield that won't crack or shatter. The Turbo 2 is the first Droid that can be customized via Moto Maker, which offers a wide variety of materials and colors for personalization. Motorola claims the 3760mAh battery provides 48 hours of use and the TurboPower charge delivers 13 hours of up time after being charged for just 15 minutes. The Turbo 2 has a 5.4-inch quad HD screen, 21-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front camera, and Snapdragon 810 processor. The Droid Turbo 2 will cost $26 per month for the 32GB version and $30 per month for the 64GB version.
The Turbo 2 is the most advanced Droid Motorola has ever created for Verizon Wireless. The handset boasts an "unbreakable" screen and two days of battery life, making it ideal for clumsy oafs who need all-day power.
Motorola's new Droid Turbo 2 for Verizon aims to entice power users with two-day battery life, a powerful camera, and fast performance on Verizon's LTE 4G network. Motorola claims the Turbo 2 is more or less unbreakable thanks to what it calls "shatter shield" technology.
