Press renders leak for the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2

Press renders leak for the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2
Evan Blass, the serial leaker once known by his Twitter handle of @evleaks, has just sent out a tweet that reveals press renders for the two Motorola handsets that are expected to be unveiled on Tuesday in New York City. The Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and the Motorola DROID MAXX 2 are both going to offer users up to 48 hours of battery life, while the DROID Turbo 2 will charge up to 13 hours of battery life after just 15 minutes plugged into an outlet.

The DROID Turbo 2 will also come with the industry's first shatterproof display. A new feature called ShatterShield provides three-layers of protection, and a four-year warranty is included just in case the display, well, shatters. Motorola has seen fit to add a microSD slot (2TB capacity) to the phone, and there is a front-facing flash for low-light selfies. Consumers will also be able to customize the DROID Turbo through the Moto Maker site.

The Motorola DROID MAXX 2 is rumored to come with a free one-time certified screen replacement, available to owners of the device who crack or shatter the display within the first two-years of the phone's purchase. This is the warranty that came with the display on the OG Motorola DROID Turbo.

If either phone is on your radar screen, keep checking in this weekend for more leaks, rumors and news about the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and the Motorola DROID MAXX 2.

I'll stick with the 6P, thanks.

But I thought that the 6P was a fail because of the SD810 processor? I thought that you already made up your mind on the Moto X Pure?

I haven't seen any reviews mention overheating with the 6P. Maybe Huawei and Google really did exorcise those demons.

As far as I can tell, there have been no reports of performance issues with the 6P, Hell, people are saying over and over it's the best Android has to offer at the moment. Personally, I'm waiting for the 128GB frost Nexus 6P to come back into stock on Google Fi so I can grab one for myself. My statement in post 14 was questioning Post 1 because he was 100% against the SD 810 chip, so I want to know what changed his mind.

The rest of the phone perhaps. Good reviews. I was skeptical about the 810 myself, but I'm now thinking of buying one. I always wanted a Nexus, and now that it's Verizon compatible, I might just do it.

Last nexus I had was the Galaxy Nexus... The battery life was terrible towards the end of my 2 plus years of use, and the lack of support was terrible. I'm very optimistic that this one will be infinitely better.

Considering the current crop of Nexus phones have no carrier involvement, I wouldn't worry too much.

There's no comparison between the Galaxy Nexus and the Nexus 5/5X/6P. Especially the Verizon version, which would have had the same pathetic battery/LTE performance as everything else released that year.

I agree, I was simply expressing my frustration with the last phone I had that was Nexus brand and how I'm confident that this year's phone won't end of being something I regret buying further on down the line.

So you're being a hypocrite? Understood.

How is that being a hypocrite? Technology has advanced quite a bit in the last 4 years since the Galaxy Nexus. Unless you're referring to his statement about the 810, which wasn't about his thoughts, but about taking a shot at yours. Just a week ago you were complaining about the Turbo 2 having an 810 in it, and now you're looking at a 6p which has the 810. So are you a hypocrite?

34. Mxyzptlk unregistered

To answer your question, no I am not. I actually just addressed why I called him a hypocrite so see that comment below. I have not heard anything about the 810 overheating on the 6P so hopefully that puts that to rest.

36. VZWuser76

Anytime a device was shown to have an 810 in it, you made some comment alluding to it overheating. You didn't wait to see if it would or not before making those comments like you say you did with the 6p. That's why he said that. As for him decrying the Nexus line because of one bad experience? He said he had one bad phone, that's it. He didn't bash any other Nexus devices because he didn't have any other Nexus devices, he only bashed the one he had issues with. That's not decrying an entire line, it's bagging on one device, there's a difference.

No, as VZWuser76 pointed out, I'm questioning your stance as we had already had a discussion where you stated that any phone with the SD 810 chip was inferior due to alleged heating and throttling issues, and now here you are talking about going with the 6P.... which I think is a great idea as it's the phone I plan to buy, but I'm curious why you suddenly changed your mind on the 810 chipset.

33. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I said I would keep an open mind regarding the 6P until reviews and videos are posted. Consensus is that Google and Huawei have optimized the hardware pretty well and it's more future proof than the MXPE. Seems to me that Motorola is back to their old tricks again. As for why I called you a hypocrite since it went over your head. You have been decrying the Nexus lineup because of one bad experience yet I did the same with Motorola after having several bad experiences and you continue to get salty about it.

I mentioned one bad experience I had with one phone, one that I actually used for more than 2 years. And in that very same statement I said "I'm very optimistic that this one will be infinitely better" than my last experience. And also, my statements are far more respectful than what you've had to say about the very same device. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Verizon-knocks-a-third-off-Galaxy-Nexus--just-199_id29396 So stop being a hypocrite.

IIRC the Galaxy Nexus was one of the last devices that came out with the 1st Gen QC LTE chip that had a separate LTE modem. After that, they integrated the modem into the CPU chip, which resulted in better performance and battery efficiency.

Exactly. So I wouldn't judge any Nexus based on the GNex. And the Verizon version was effectively a Galaxy S2½ with stock and minimal bloatware. That's not the Nexus experience.

I was stuck between either the Turbo 2 or the MXPE but with that ugly tramp stamp on the DT2, I know what I'm going to get.

The fact that Verizon made them split the speaker for the sake of branding is atrocious

How did Moto go from sexy dumb phones like the razr to ugly smart phones like all of the Moto series?

Definitely disagree... The entire Moto X lineup is great looking. The Droid Turbo... is much less so.

Really Verizon? Real f***ing ly?

Terrible placement aside, the Turbo 2 has the least amount of branding of a Droid device ever.

10. MobileNico

Posts: 94; Member since: Aug 26, 2012

Not true. The first Turbo initially had no direct Verizon branding, but did have the Droid logo on the rear bottom of the phone. That was pretty much perfect. After a few months they started putting the Verizon logo above it. The placement of the logo on this one is just obnoxious.

Will there be an international version ? ;_;

That Verizon logo... seriously? Almost as bad as when they stuck the logo on the home button of the Galaxy Note 2, and after endless complaints, sold a cover to place over the home button to hide it.

12. roldefol

There must be an explanation for that split speaker. There must. It can't be solely for placement of half an outdated Verizon logo.

What's the news on international versions? Almost no-one uses that old CDMA stuff anymore.
