Those rumors of Verizon launching the Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 at its October 27th event? They just got much more concrete. Droid-Life has obtained leaked promos spilling the beans on both of the carrier-specific Motorola smartphones. As suspected, the Droid Turbo 2 should be advertised as having a "shatterproof" screen -- we're a bit skeptical of that claim, but Big Red will apparently back that up by accepting trade-ins of phones with cracked screens. Even if the display doesn't live up to that billing, though, the new Turbo will reportedly offer Moto Maker customization. Finally, you won't be stuck picking from a handful of black-and-red models while your Moto X-toting friends show off their more colorful devices.

The ad copy also talks about the Droid Maxx 2, although it largely says what you might already know: this is really just a Moto X Play gussied up for Verizon, complete with a 48-hour battery. It's not going to be nearly as exciting as the Turbo 2, then, but you'll at least have one option on the network if you value battery life above all else.
