New Motorola phones will be announced on October 27 - shatterproof Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 likely included
For now, the two companies aren't providing too many details about the event, but they do say we'll see new Droid devices then. Most probably, Verizon and Motorola will finally announce the rumored Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2.
As previously reported, the Droid Turbo 2 should be a high-end smartphone with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display - a worthy successor to last year's Droid Turbo. The new Turbo should be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, further featuring a 21 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera, 3 GB of RAM, a 3760 mAh fast-charging battery, and 32 GB or 64 GB of internal memory.
As for the Droid Maxx 2, this is expected to be Verizon's version of the Motorola X Play, thus sporting a 5.5-inch 1080p display, while being powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor.
In addition to announcing the October 27 event, Verizon is now hosting a Droid Landing webpage that lets users register for updates on the "latest Droid device launches." According to Verizon, "your expectations of a phone will be shattered" once the new Droids arrive. Not long ago, we heard that the Motorola X Force - the global variant of the Droid Turbo 2 - would be a "shatterproof" phone. It looks like Verizon is now indirectly confirming this. But we'll see what happens on October 27.
