Motorola, Verizon will announce two new DROID handsets at Oct 27 event

At a forthcoming product launch event scheduled to be held in New York on October 27, two new handsets in the DROID lineup -- the DROID Turbo 2 and the DROID MAXX 2 -- will be announced by Motorola and Verizon.

Going by the indications from the press invites sent out by Microsoft and Verizon for the October 27 event, it is being speculated that the launch date of the DROID Turbo 2 will likely be confirmed by Microsoft at the event. However, it is not certain whether the DROID MAXX 2 will also get a launch day via the event.

According to reports and rumors related to the two new DROID handsets, both the devices are apparently the best smartphones ever manufactured by Motorola.

Rumors about the two new Motorola DROID handsets have revealed that some of the key features of the devices will include a 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1140 resolution; the Snapdragon 810 chipset; a 21-megapixel back camera; a 5-megapixel front camera; and a massive 3,760 mAh battery.

The DROID MAXX 2 will likely be a remodeled version of the Moto X Play handset for the US market. Meanwhile, the DROID Turbo 2 will, as per an NDTV report, probably feature a “shatterproof screen.” The report has drawn attention to the fact that the tagline of the invites for the October 27 event says "everything you expect from a phone will change," and is companied by an image of a shattered glass.
