A posting on a Motorola website, which has since been removed by the company, reveals that the shatterproof screen on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 will be called the "ShatterShield" Display System, and will consist of three separate layers. According to the post, the screen will include "the display, an embedded lens and a consumer-replaceable protective lens."
Motorola will give DROID Turbo 2 owners a four-year warranty that will cover a cracked or shattered display. The consumer-replaceable lens isn't covered as part of the warranty. The Motorola DROID MAXX 2, which should be unveiled on Tuesday along with the DROID Turbo 2
, also will have some protection from a cracked and shattered display. Owners of that phone
will get one free certified screen replacement for two years from the date of purchase.
The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 will also be the fastest charging smartphone as it will provide users with 13 hours of power after a 15-minute charge. And Motorola will boast that the DROID Turbo 2 and the DROID MAXX 2 will both provide users with up to 48 hours of battery life.
"Additional warranty coverage for those Products that contain the ShatterShield™ Display System: the ShatterShield™ display system is made up of 3 separate components; the display, embedded lens and a consumer-replaceable protective lens. The display and embedded lens are warranted against shattering and cracking for four (4) years from the original date of consumer purchase. The consumer-replaceable protective lens is not covered by this Limited Warranty, but should always be in place to prevent scratches and other damage to the underlying components. All other limitations and exclusions contained in this Limited Warranty (see “What is not covered” section below), including scratches and other cosmetic damage, intentional damage or abuse, and normal wear and tear, apply to the components of the ShatterShield™ display system."-Posting on Motorola website, since removed
