Verizon Teases Shatterproof Droid

Those panicky moments of worrying whether your phone display will shatter after you've accidentally dropped it could be a forgotten nightmare if Verizon has anything to say about it. The wireless carrier has released a teaser trailer of a new Droid device careening towards a concrete sidewalk with dramatic music in the background, and a message: "The new Droid is dropping soon."

Verizon teased the possibly shatterproof phone, which we believe to be the Droid Turbo 2, in a tweet that read "Introducing the perfect phone for imperfect people." We expect this device to be unveiled at a Motorola and Verizon event scheduled for next Tuesday, Oct. 27.

The trailer shows off the Droid Turbo 2 with a back that bears more resemblance to tire treads than to a smartphone. But rumors circulating about the device suggest that you'll be able to customize it through Motorola's Moto Maker service.

The trailer may not reveal much, but Droid Life has leaked what it believes to be print ads for the new device, which suggest that Verizon will indeed claim that the device's display is shatterproof. The leaked ad also promotes Verizon offering trade-in deals for cracked smart phones, and that users who buy the 64GB model of the Turbo 2 will get a free "design refresh" through Moto Maker.
