Earlier today, Motorola launched the Moto X Force in India, which is set to go on sale from February 8 onwards. The smartphone’s USP is its shatterproof display and a multi-layer design that is built to survive a drop. Motorola is so sure of the device’s survival capabilities that it says the screen won t crack or shatter for up to four years. Let’s take a closer look at the technology behind the shatterproof Moto X Force. Also Read - Motorola set to launch a 4K Android TV Stick in India: Check details

Motorola says that the smartphone’s display is shatterproof thanks to what it calls ‘ShatterShield’ technology. This technology basically consists of the Moto X Force’s 5.4-inch QHD AMOLED display cocooned between five different layers. These layers are focused on absorbing any sort of shock, and stop the display from shattering. Also Read - Motorola to launch its new Moto Watch series soon: Here are more details

The outmost layer is called ‘Exterior Protective Lens’, which is a unique hardcoat designed by Motorola that guards against dents and scratches. Under this is an ‘Interior Lens’, which is essentially a transparent layer that won’t easily crack.

The fourth layer is the display itself, which too has been made flexible enough to absorb shocks. Lastly, there is an aluminum chassis at the bottom that offers the strength and durability to the display and the above layers.

Last year, Motorola conducted a survey across countries like US, India, Brazil, Mexico, UK and China. One of its observations was that every two seconds a smartphone display cracks. In India, nearly 65 percent of smartphone users have experienced a broken display, and almost 37 percent of them didn’t repair the device because of cost constraints. The most common reasons for shattering the display was falling from one’s hands, pockets or lap.

Motorola says with the Moto X Force, users won’t have to worry about their smartphones breaking apart on falling. To prove its point, Motorola conducted multiple drop tests and compared the results with rival smartphones. It dropped the devices on concrete floors, and while the rival smartphones shattered on impact, the Moto X Force came out pretty much unscathed.
