Motorola is gearing up to release two new devices known for their rugged exterior and phenomenal battery life. The handsets include Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2. Meanwhile, a new report points to a leaked pamphlet, revealing key configuration, launch date, marketing and trade-in deal related details.
The Motorola Droid Maxx 2 and Droid Turbo 2 launch date have reportedly been scheduled for Oct. 27 at a special event in New York City. Both Motorola and Verizon are expected to unveil the device. Not to forget, these handsets are Verizon-exclusive. Even though, many rumors in the past have given umpteen configuration related information, the leaked pamphlet picked up by Droid Life provides key details about the phones.
Based on the pamphlet, the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 features will include a “shatterproof screen” to help market the device as tougher than its peers. However, there are no technical details available to ascertain how Motorola is going to achieve this feature.
In the meantime, Verizon will apparently offer a trade-in program, where interested buyers can exchange their old device for a new Droid Turbo 2. Droid Life said buyers can also bring in a device with a “cracked display” and get a discount of up to $300 towards the purchase of a new Turbo 2. This discount can be availed in the form of an account credit or a gift card.
Speaking of the alterable back panel, the Droid Turbo 2 will reportedly come with a slew of custom options like leather and ballistic nylon, among others, to choose from. To top it all off, Motorola is planning to offer a promo deal via Moto Maker, where the company will let the buyer to “refresh the outer design” one more time, in case a 64 GB variant was purchased.
Moving on to the Motorola Droid Maxx 2, the device will reportedly be able to provide up to 48 hours of battery life. However, the Maxx 2 is nothing but the recently unveiled “Motorola Moto X Play,” which has been renamed specific to the U.S. market. Sadly, the removable shell option for this handset is limited to three colors namely red, green and black.
Similar to the Droid Turbo 2, Verizon will apparently offer up to $300 for the exchange of an old phone via the trade-in deal towards the purchase of Droid Maxx 2. In any case, readers should note that Motorola and Verizon have not confirmed the Droid devices-related information thus far.
