Motorola and Verizon have teamed up once again to add a sequel phone to their previous Turbo smartphone. The new addition to the line of the Turbo series is the Droid Turbo 2. The Turbo 2 has many latest and greatest features but the that people are excitedly talking about is the “shatter-proof” display that the phone is featuring.
The phone is now official and that means the features and specs are official too. Here, we are going to provide to you a complete overview of the phone and also look into the composition of the shatter-proof screen.
The shatter-proof screen
The Phone has come up with a revolutionary change in the smartphone world. It is the world’s first phone to feature a shatter-proof screen that won’t crack. As per Motorola describes, the screen is composed of 5 layers. The first is a aluminium chassis that provides rigid protection and acts as a base. Then there is the AMOLED display that delivers crystal clear picture quality and vision. Then comes a dual touch layer that adds touch responsive resilience and above that is a interior lens that offers clear visibility and finally there is a exterior lens that provides an outer protection. Motorola have guaranteed the screen wont crack and are calling this technology the “ShatterShield”. They are so confident in their technology that they are offering a four year warranty from the date of purchase to protect against shattering or cracking. That is a very bold move.
