'Shatterproof' Motorola Bounce leaks: 5.4" QHD screen, big battery, December release

Motorola isn't done with great phones this season, it seems, as a popular leakster account just tipped a rugged Motorola Bounce might greet us come December. The handset will apparently sit somewhere sideways of the Moto X Style or X Play, as it is supposed to be "shatterproof," likely adhering to some rugged specification which could include a waterproof chassis, too.
phone with a 5.43" Quad HD display, a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB/ 64 GB storage, as well as a hearty 3760 mAh battery. These specs are all in line with Motorola's latest crop of handsets, down to the 21 MP rear camera, and the 5 MP front shooter. The Bounce, however, one-ups them all in terms of processing power and battery capacity, and, likely, ruggedness, so we can't wait for more info about it to start trickling down the rumor pipes.In any case, the Motorola Bounce leak tells us to expect a

If its shatter, water, and dust proof. Then it sounds like its a mil-spec device. Ready for military standards. Plus those awesome specs don't hurt as well. Way to go Motorola. Glad to see you are upping the game. You already started the low priced devices that offer reasonably great specs. Now let's see if you can keep going.

All they need is a quality AMOLED screen and they have won :)

You know... I'm a little hesitant to say what is the better technology. I thought for a while that it was AMOLED by a long shot, but recently I've been reading how the Moto X Style's display has more accurate colors and a wider viewing angels than AMOLED displays, while the AMOLED displays have deeper blacks and warmer colors. I've been hearing conflicting reports about power efficiency between the two. I know that AMOLED displays only have to power the actual pixels as there's no need for a back light which would save power if the majority of the display were black, maybe AMOLED take more power than LCD if all pixels are lit? I really have no clue.

Yes amoled take more power than lcd at full white screen. Still the latest samsung amoled draw power only slightly more than the most efficient lcd..meaning they equal or even better than some less efficient lcd. Moreover its known that Qhd lcd takes more power than Fhd because they need brighter backlight. So i should expect that the newest amoled still take less power than the Qhd lcd screen even at full white screen.

I agree. This is a pretty d!ck move by Motorola with the Style coming out pretty soon.

I agree! How dare they give their consumers options! Who needs choice! I say we should all use a singular phone, drive a single car, wear tan slacks and a collared shirt with a little animal embroidered on it. And Hanson music is good enough for everyone, no variety in music is necessary because Mm-Bop covers all bases of musical preference. Variety is the devil! THE DEVIL I SAY!!!

There are NO Verizon exclusives. The XT1254 Droid Turbo was NEVER an exclusive. The U.S. Moto Maxx XT1250 has the SAME FCC ID, has the same bands, and works just fine with a Verizon SIM card in it -- just like a non-Verizon Nexus 6 works with a Verizon SIM card. It's sold by smaller regional CDMA/LTE carriers. SAME device as the Droid Turbo, just a different name. The ONLY thing exclusive about the Droid Turbo is the name "Droid" which is licensed to Verizon. The "international" Moto Turbo/Moto Maxx XT1225 is a sibling to that phone. Lacks CDMA, but has GSM/HSPA/LTE. LTE bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 17. I own two of the XT1225 and am running them on AT&T. It's the SAME phone as the Droid Turbo XT1254/U.S. Moto Maxx XT1250, except no CDMA and slightly different LTE bands.

How is it a dick move then? The Style/Pure hasn't even been released yet. So it's not like somebody bought one and then this comes out. New phones are going to keep coming out whether you buy one or not. As for PapaSmuf's comment, couldn't it also mean that they put out a no compromise device? That's how I took it. It basically ticks all the boxes. Powerful CPU/GPU, RAM, large battery, Hi rez and tough display, front speakers, improved camera, and decent storage with expandability. Isn't that what you yourself were saying they should do? If you're referring to a smaller battery in the Style/Pure, and if this an early look at the Turbo 2, that would also support my theory that Verizon has an exclusivity deal with Motorola to only give them the large battery devices in the US, considering it's been that way since the first Droid Razr Maxx. There were other Motorola phones available on other carriers, but the only big battery devices they sell in the US are Droid models.

Haha actually it's a good move for consumers..the variety will help. It's also a good move for Motorola regarding sales to Motorola faithfuls. It's a bad move for Motorola in terms or moving product though... The more you do this the slower your phones will sell because people end up waiting for the next big thing to come out before they make a decision. Lots of people are hooked on Motorola now. Lots are waiting for the x play to come out. And then they hear and even more exciting phone is on its way? Best option is to keep my cash in my pocket and wait till all the cards are on the table. I know I would.. This strategy has taken down lots of tech companies in the past if not managed well. Motorola needs to make sure whatever they are bringing lives up to expectations.. And they need to plug the leaks in their office as well.

I doubt it's shatter-proof, its likely shatter-resistant, such as the Galaxy S6(which its still possible to break).

Talk with anyone who knows anything on the matter, and they'll tell you the same. The bullets don't bouce off like they do in the movies. Each time there's a bullet impact, the glass cracks. Hit it enough times, and the "bulletproof" glass will fail. That's why it's bullet resistant. I found this out when we were doing work in a prison. I asked if the glass they were installing was bulletproof in the control room (where the guards are that controls the doors and cameras). I was told by the facility manager that there is no such thing as bulletproof glass outside of movies and TV, it's bullet resistant.

As long as it's not a super brick like their other phones. It probably is though which is why I have never owned a Moto phone since they dominated dumb phones.

So you like phone that are paper thin and prone to bend when put in any pocket with batteries that will last until after lunch? Remember that sometimes quality does not always mean thin & light and cheapness does not always mean thicker & heavier. Sometimes the "brick" as you would call it has advantages over the feather. I laugh at those people who make a big deal about buying the thinnest and lightest phone they can and then put it in an Otterbox Defender case that weights more than their phone does and doubles the thickness.
