As Verizon cleverly put it earlier this week, “the new Droid is dropping soon”, and it’s no longer a secret a so-called shatterproof screen will headline the Turbo 2’s spec sheet and list of major selling points.
But a textured backplate should also help enhance the muscular phone’s overall durability, despite likely popping out and allowing you to easily replace it when you feel in the mood for a quick makeover. The Droid Maxx 2 is expected to feature removable shells as well, each costing $20, though the Droid Turbo 2 shall let you pick from a wider range of more premium covers.
At least seven of them, it appears, including three made of leather, and a textile quartet of sorts. The above pic is far from official, having surfaced on Chinese microblogging portal Weibo, but it’s much too high-res and tricky to fabricate to call its legitimacy in question.
Undoubtedly therefore, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 is set to be the first Verizon exclusive available through Moto Maker in an assortment of color and material combinations, hopefully with “natural” wood and maybe even Kevlar on the way.
In addition to customization and stellar resistance to face-down drops, the sequel to one of the world’s longest-lasting Androids will itself probably keep the lights on for ages between charges, thanks to a 3,800 mAh or so battery. Other ultra-high-end specs should include 5.4-inch Quad HD display resolution, a Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32 and 64GB storage options, and 21 and 5MP cameras.
