'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.

In any case, the Motorola Bounce leak tells us to expect a 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.

Is it throttle proof? if yes does it burn from the heat of 810?

judging by the pic the sides of the phone looks like its all rubber surrounding it so it might be true if its a shatter proof phone.

The Moto Maxx 2 has a SD615 and doesn't have an "unbreakable" POled display.

He must mean Moto Maxx (Turbo), not Droid Maxx. Motorola made it all nice and confusing last year.

Read it too fast. Whenever I see Maxx, I think Droid. We didn't hear that much about the Moto Maxx in the US other than when it first came out and that it wouldn't be coming to the US.

Hopefully they can deliver this at a starting price of $499. That would be pretty impressive

It'll definitely be higher than the $400 Moto X Pure with those specs. Probably closer to $600.

Sd810? Hope it's fireproof, too.

Ha! I was waiting on someone to comment about the chip. In all honesty, I haven't heard any negative reports on the SD810 overheating sense they released a revised chip that's under clocked... But I guess when you run out of things to complain about you just have to grasp for straws.

be sure that those experienced technicians in motorola do know what to do with SD810 heating problems,as history shows motorola is very conservative in hardware design.

Hmm... maybe this "Bounce" might be worth looking into with its rugged durability and awesome battery... Though if it turns out it's the next Droid then I'll have to pass. I refuse to be locked to Verizon any more.

Sounds like the specs for the Droid Turbo 2 to me...

Maybe Bounce is the international name. Like the Moto Maxx last year. Everything else here - SD810, QHD, beefy battery, ~5.5" screen, shatterproof screen - matches previous rumors for the Turbo 2.

That was my initial thought as well. I was worried when they didn't give battery specs on the Droid Turbo2, thinking maybe it might have a smaller battery than the original if based off the Moto X Pure. Considering this is set to launch not long after the Droids usually launch, that makes the most sense. I am still looking at possibly going with the X Pure, mostly because of ability to work on any network and bypassing the carriers for updates, but I'll have to see how the battery life is. Since they almost doubled the battery size of last years model, that will help. However they also increased the screen size by .5" and upped the resolution to QHD, so I'll wait until the reviews come in.

Hopefully Motorola won't start to try selling uncountable amouts of phones à la Samsung. This year they have already covered every segment (budget with Moto G, midrange with X Play and highend with Moto Style).

As long as they are selling phones with stock android & less bloatware,it doesn't matter
