It’s not hard to guess what Verizon and Motorola will announce at its event on Oct. 27. Over the past several weeks, we’ve not only heard about the DROID Maxx 2, but the DROID Turbo 2, which will further emphasize durability when the device hits. And just over a week ahead of the big unveil, yet another leak has hit, this time in the form of a brochure detailing what each device has to offer.
The DROID Turbo 2 will apparently sport a shatterproof screen, which we’ve already heard about. This will be the device’s main selling point, as you can tell in the marketing material. How frustrating is it when your screen shatters after you accidentally drop your phone? The DROID Turbo 2 will have no such problems, meaning a bulky case won’t be necessary. And if you enjoy a bit of customization, buyers will be able to take advantage of Moto Maker.
Meanwhile, the DROID Maxx 2 is essentially the Moto X Play, and emphasizes battery life as its main feature. The brochure says users will get up to 48 hours of battery life; you can typically squeeze about a full day of heavy usage out of today’s top flagships, but beyond that there’s no way you can get through two full days. With the DROID Maxx 2, however, you’ll apparently be able to without issue.
Unfortunately, the DROID Maxx 2 won’t get Moto Maker support, though it does look like the rear shells are easily replaceable. That’s not quite on the level of Moto Maker, but it’s nice to see there is at least some form of customization happening. It doesn’t look like the device will get the shatterproof screen treatment either, so a case might be in order if you’re particularly clumsy.
According to the Verizon document, buyers can get up to $300 back when they trade in an old smartphone—even if the screen is shattered. We should find out much more about these devices at the event on Oct. 27.
