Verizon video teases the shatterproof glass on the Motorola DROID Turbo 2
With the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 and Motorola DROID MAXX 2 both expected to be unveiled one week from today, Verizon has tweeted out a video teaser for the DROID Turbo 2. The phone is expected to feature a shatterproof display, confirmed by a leaked Verizon brochure. Which means that the marketing guys at Big Red are having the time of their lives coming up with a number of witty puns that suit the occasion.

Take the video teaser. The clip shows a DROID Turbo 2 falling for about 11 seconds. At the end of the video, the tag line reads, "The new DROID is dropping soon." On one hand, that means that the DROID Turbo 2 will soon be released by Verizon. But it also means that people will be dropping their new DROID, and since the screen is shatterproof, they are doing so without fear. "Introducing the perfect phone for imperfect people," Verizon tweeted.

The DROID Turbo 2 is expected to be equipped with a 5.4-inch 1440 x 2560 QHD display, carrying the Snapdragon 810 SoC under the hood. The chipset will offer an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 430 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB/64GB of native storage. The 3760mAh battery is 140mAh shy of the 3900mAh capacity juicer on the OG Motorola DROID Turbo.

As we already said, the Motorola DROID MAXX 2 will also be unveiled at next week's event. The leaked brochure we mentioned before, shows that Verizon will be touting the handset's ability to get up to 48 hours of mixed use battery life, as it did with the previous version of the phone. A 3630mAh battery is inside the new model, up from the 3500mAh found in the OG Motorola DROID MAXX.

Yeah... and iFans will call it a marketing gimmick, until an iPhone does it!

So if I take a sledgehammer to it, it won't break? Sure. Just like my tractor trailer that runs totally off a handcrank turbine generator.

Within reason. Also, the phone being dropped on the sledgehammer wouldn't shatter the screen. It doesn't state anything about dropping/hammering things on the device. The kinetic energy and intertia of the two situations is drastically different.

That would be the iPhone when Apple invents it, it will be marketed as having a screen impervious to Everything. The "Apple iPhone 7+ Ironman".

So what about this phone makes it drop proof? Maybe a bumper around the screen or a thick film over the screen?

No, phones have had bumpers or lips around the screen before. Probably a type of glass that is more shatter resistant than Gorilla Glass, or maybe just thicker Gorilla Glass. The former would be difficult to do. I've dropped my Galaxy S6 from about 5 feet multiple times onto a hard tile floor, not a single crack.

The rumor is that it's a P-OLED screen, but I thought even the G Flex line has glass covering the screen. I thought the only way to truly achieve a shatterproof screen was to not use glass, or even sapphire.

Not even the Samsung active phones?
