Motorola’s Verizon-bound Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 have been launched. While the Turbo 2 comes with a shatterproof display, the Maxx 2 features a microSD card slot and it is relatively less feature-rich when compared to the former.
Speaking of release date, both Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 will reportedly hit the store shelves Thursday. To top it off, interested buyers will be able to grab the devices from a total of 1,600 Verizon retail stores and also from the online store.
The shatterproof ShatterShield display of the Turbo 2 makes the device costlier at $624 without a contract. This price pertains to the 32 GB model, whereas the 64 GB variant will apparently retail at $720. The Maxx 2, on the other hand, will set the buyers back by $384 for the 16 GB variant.
When it comes to monthly rentals, the Droid Turbo 2 can be availed by paying $26 per month and $30 per month for the 32 GB and 64 GB models, respectively. The Maxx 2, meanwhile, can be purchased for $16 per month.
Furthermore, according to Phone Arena, buyers can also trade-in the old phone for a new Turbo 2, which should fetch up to $300. It is worth noting that Verizon will reportedly accept old smartphones with “cracked screen” for the trade-in deal. Plus, buyers can utilize Moto Maker on the Droid devices and can customize the exterior.
Apart from the one-of-a-kind shatterproof screen, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 also includes a humongous TurboPower 3,760 mAh battery unit. This cell can apparently provide up to 48 hours of charge. The TurboCharge mechanism, meanwhile, will apparently be able to provide 13 hours of battery life by charging for just 15 minutes.
