Every day that passes ahead of next week's Motorola and Verizon event we learn more about the phones that will be announced — so much so, in fact, that Verizon just decided to nearly show the new Droid Turbo 2 in full.

This afternoon, the company tweeted a video that shows off the back of the Droid Turbo 2, which it calls "the perfect phone for imperfect people." That's because, as the video implies, the new Motorola phone is supposedly packed with a "shatterproof" screen. Leaked ads have also revealed that customers will be able to personalize the phones with Motorola's Moto Maker tool, with choices like leather or ballistic nylon (the latter of which was found on the original Droid Turbo) available.

Motorola's announcements are coming at the tail end of a busy fall season full of new phone releases, following on the heels of Apple, Google, LG, and HTC. So it's no surprise that the company is going to sweeten the deal on the Droid Turbo 2 in a number of ways. You'll be able to trade in any phone for up to $300 of credit and — if you buy the 64GB model — you'll be able to "refresh" your phone's design for free at any point during the life of the device.

The Turbo 2 isn't the only phone slated to be announced next week. Verizon and Motorola will likely unveil the Droid Maxx 2; though, it's essentially a rebranded version of the Moto X Play that was released this summer.
