Motorola unveils Droid Turbo 2 with world's first shatterproof display

Motorola and Verizon have lifted the veil on the new Droid Turbo 2, the world's first smartphone with a shatterproof display, at a press event in New York, where they showed off its flagship specs and rugged exterior. Its 5.4-inch display features 'Moto ShatterShield' technology and a 'dual touch layer' that Motorola says is so tough it won't shatter.

The Droid Turbo 2 comes with 32 GB or 64 GB internal storage options, along with microSD card support. It also runs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 processor and is powered by a 3,760 mAh battery, which will give a claimed battery life of 48 hours. It also comes with a turbocharger, which will nab you 13 extra hours of battery life after charging for only 15 minutes.

Regarding cameras, the Droid Turbo 2 has 21 MP rear and 5 MP front sensors. As with other Motorola phones, you'll be able to customize the look of the Droid Turbo 2 using Moto Maker. It'll be available from October 29.

CNN put the shatterproof display to the test, with impressive results. See what happened in the video below.

    Wow, that sounds pretty nice. And, I must admit, this is the first Motorola phone in the last few years with the looks I actually like.

    • To be completely honest (and you can find my rants about this on a few other article comments😛) I still prefer the style of the original DROID Turbo by far compared to this. I was disappointed to see the DROIDs look like the regular Moto phones. But still the design has grown on me since the first leaks a while back, and I can't wait to ditch my DROID Ultra for this come February when my contract is up. 😁
