NEW YORK CITY—Verizon has taken the wraps off the latest in its Droid line of phones: the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and the Motorola Droid Maxx 2. It’s hard to believe that exclusive, carrier-branded smartphones are still being made in 2015, but Verizon is still desperately trying to cling to the idea that carriers are not just a dumb pipe.

The Droid Turbo 2 is the high-end model. It has a 5.4-inch, 1440p display, a 2.0GHz Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32 or 64GB of storage, a microSD slot, 21MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and a 3760mAh battery with fast charging. There’s also Qi and PMA wireless charging.

Motorola and Verizon are claiming this device has a “shatterproof” display thanks to “Moto ShatterSheild.” Right after unveiling it, Motorola’s COO dropped the phone right on stage, screen-side down. The device has a flexible AMOLED display and, instead of Gorilla Glass, a plastic front panel covering the display. There is also a dual-touch layer, which adds redundancy to the touchscreen in case the first touch layer breaks.
