Verizon Wireless is expected to launch at least one new handset next week at a press event and odds are good that at least one of them will be the Droid Turbo 2.
If there's any doubt, Verizon is already squelching it by tweeting on Tuesday this short video about the Android handset.

Both the tagline and the phone being dropped on concrete gives more than a hint as to the phone's durable display.
It also doesn't hurt that a leaked ad for the phone was found a few days ago by Droid Life. In it, Verizon says the Droid Turbo 2 will have "the world's first shatterproof screen."
Motorola is the likely handset maker for the Droid Turbo 2, as well as the anticipated Droid Maxx 2; I'd expect that phone to be similar to the Moto X Pure Edition but with a larger battery and thicker design.
Again, the leaked ad sheds more light: The Droid Maxx 2 should last for 48 hours on a single charge.
Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised to see much of the $399 Moto X Pure Edition carry over to these two devices; save for the costs, that is. Verizon has typically chartered Motorola to customize its more generic flagship phone designs to boost battery life, for example.
I'll be attending next week's press event and will provide information as well as hands-on impressions once I get a look at the new phones.
