By now you must have heard: today Motorola announced the Droid Turbo 2, which it's claiming to be the world's first smartphone to come with a shatterproof display.
Now that's a bold claim to make, but Motorola has put out a video that explains things in a little detail. In the "Making of Droid Turbo 2" which you can see below, the company tells us that the new phone's screen has five layers in total.
There's an aluminum chassis for a rigid foundation, on top of which there's a flexible P-OLED panel. This is more rugged than the majority of OLED panels out there because it's made on a plastic substrate instead of glass. On top of that we find a dual touch layer for "resilient touch response", and an interior lens for "crystal clear visibility". Everything's topped off by the exterior lens, which acts like an outer protective layer for the whole thing.
The result of all of those components is that when the Droid Turbo 2 is dropped, the shock is dissipated much better than in other phones. To drive this point home, Motorola's first ad for the Droid Turbo 2 (which you can see below) is all about that shatterproof screen. Be warned, however, that a fair amount of iPhones have been harmed in the making of this video.
So did you know that one in three phones out there have their screens cracked at some point in their lifetimes? Or that 1 in 4 people apparently still use their phones when they have cracked displays, even if they've gotten cuts from them? Well, Motorola does know all of these things, and it's also got a solution for you - the Droid Turbo 2.
