Motorola explains mechanism behind Droid Turbo 2’s “ShatterScreen”
We’ve all probably heard of the “ShatterShield” technology that has come with the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 and Motorola Droid Maxx 2 which would make sure that your device lasts very much longer than the average device before it starts to get a screen cracked at all. Verizon unwrapped their own version of the device and were bent on making their customers know that this device is really shatterproof.
Dropping the device on concrete for some time didn’t prove at all effective in cracking the screen so Verizon resolved to other methods. Putting the phone under a bike rider’s tires, Verizon also proceeded to ride over the phone using – wait for it – a horse’s hoof. This resilient piece of technology still held its own, cracking before shattering. How strong is that?
A guide has been made available online as to how this phone runs its ShatterScreen technology. If you would like to know, it is as reported below.
•It starts with a rigid aluminum core that provides structural integrity and durability.
• On top of that, we’ve added in a stunning AMOLED flexible display. Using a flexible display absorbs shock and makes it possible to flex during a drop versus breaking like most screens.
• Then, a dual touch layer with redundancy was created to help it survive accidents. Often, after a drop, the touch layer can go bad and your touch doesn’t work as well. So we’ve added a fail safe mechanism.
• The next layer is the interior lens which provides a clear protective shield that won’t crack or shatter.
• Lastly, we topped it off with an exterior lens that has a unique hard coat that helps protect the display against normal wear and tear.
And there it is. However, with this new technology, there has been too much packages and focus in the screen that it doesn’t offer you as much lighting as other devices do. Motorola still has to perfect this technology before rolling to other devices.
