Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless are jointly hosting an event in New York City on 27 October, where reportedly, both the companies will unveil Droid Turbo 2. 

Even its predecessor made its debut on 28 October last year.

For the past few weeks, there have been numerous leaks on the Internet leaving very little to imagination. That being said, we just can't assume everything that is swirling in the web to be true.

So, to provide better perspective on the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, we have sifted through multiple reliable reports and sources to stitch together a list of probable features that are likely to make the cut in the upcoming Motorola-Verizon device.

Display and build quality:

Last year, Motorola Droid Turbo (1st Gen) made headlines for its Kevlar based shell. The material is said to be five times stronger than steel and is usually used in bullet-proof vest.

This year, Motorola is taking things a notch up. It is learnt that the company will keep the Kevlar coating on the cover and to further enhance the device's durability, the Droid Turbo will come with a shatter-proof display. As of now, there is no word on the material that has been used for the screen, but it is said to measure 5.43-inch in size with QHD (2560x1440p) resolution.


Going by the  promotional teaser video released by Verizon (via Twitter), the Droid Turbo 2 design language resembles Motorola's recently launched Moto X Style. It will feature the vertically placed metal-strip on the back-side containing the camera module (with LED flash) on top and the company's bat-wing logo at the bottom.

And on the front, it is expected to house a 5mp wide-angle snapper.
