Verizon today unveiled the new Droid Turbo 2, the first smartphone with Motorola’s new ShatterShield technology, which promises to protect against cracks and shattering for up to four years.

The device also boasts a Quad HD display, Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 processor, and up to 48 hours of battery life between charges.

The Droid Turbo 2 — and the new Droid Maxx 2, which was announced alongside it — looks a lot like the new Moto X at first glance. That’s because the design is almost identical, but there are a number of nice improvements you get with Verizon’s device.

The big one is ShatterShield, a new technology that combines the display with exterior and interior lenses to make (according to Motorola) shatterproof. As a result, the Droid Turbo 2 can withstand dings and drops that would ruin rival devices.

Beneath that ShatterShield is a 5.4-inch Quad HD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2GHz, 3GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of internal storage. The Droid Turbo 2 also boasts a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 3,760mAh battery with TurboPower (fast charging) technology that supposedly lasts up to two days in between charges.

The Droid Turbo 2 will be available directly from Verizon, and through Moto Maker, which will allow you to customize its back panel. The device starts at $26 per month with 32GB of storage, but if you get the 64GB version at $30 per month, Motorola will let you refresh your handset’s design once during the two years of ownership.

You’ll be able to order your Droid Turbo 2 this Thursday, October 29.
