Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2 to be protected from spills and light rain

Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2 to be protected from spills and light rain
For those of you who were hoping to be able to submerge the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 in water, forget it. According to a leaked Verizon document, both the DROID Turbo 2 and the Motorola DROID MAXX 2 will feature the same nanocoating technology found on the Motorola DROID Turbo and other recent Motorola devices. With the nanocoating, a treated phone can survive getting splashed on and can even be used in a light rain.

While Motorola has generally employed the nanocoating technique for its handsets, it did give the third-generation Motorola Moto G an IPX7 certification. This means that the phone can be submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes, without getting damaged.


Tomorrow, Motorola and Verizon will be unveiling the two new DROID models during a media event in New York City.  The DROID Turbo 2 is expected to be introduced with the industry's first shatterproof screen. Based on prior leaks, Motorola will also announce that both models offer 48 hours of mixed use battery life.
