We’re one week away from Verizon and Motorola’s upcoming launch event, where we expect to see the debut of the Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2. Rumors about this hardware date back months and months, and one of the earliest claims we heard about the handset codenamed Kinzie – the one should ultimately launch as the Droid Turbo 2 – is that its 5.43-inch quad HD display would be well-nigh unbreakable. That detail returned in later rumors where what sure seemed to be the same handset, though now attached to the codename Bounce, was described as picking up a shaterproof screen. With the launch event looming, Verizon’s adding some fuel to that rumor fire as it drops a new teaser that once again emphasizes the Droid Turbo’s rugged display.
The slow-motion fall of a smartphone onto a rough surface is one a lot of us have seen play out in our minds at one time or another (the memory may be in slow motion, but the sudden reality of a dropped phone sure seems to play out a lot quicker), and Verizon’s drawing on those fears in this new teaser.
While the full nature of the phone’s ruggedization may take until next week to reveal itself, we’ve heard talk about how a flexible substrate for the phone’s OLED screen and a metal border surrounding the screen may add up to offer superior breakage protection.
Check back with Pocketnow next Tuesday for full coverage of the new Droid launches.
