We’re in the midst of one of the most crowded holiday seasons for smartphones in recent memory, but we’re still not out of the woods yet. Today at 11 a.m. ET, Motorola and Verizon will be hosting a live event in New York City to unveil its latest slate of Droid smartphones, which many expect to be the Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2.

We’ll be live from the event, so you can follow along with our blog below as we follow along throughout the presentation, but until then, let’s go over what we think we know.

Based on the numerous leaks that have found their way on to the internet over the past several weeks, we expect to see at least two phones at the event: the Droid Turbo 2 and the Droid Maxx 2. The Turbo 2 supposedly features a 2560 x 1440 resolution 5.4-inch display, as well as a Snapdragon 810 processor and up to 2TB of expandable storage.

As for the Droid Maxx 2, leaked documents claim that this midrange device will feature a 1920 x 1080 resolution 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 617 processor and 16GB of internal storage (up to 128GB with a microSD card). Both phones will come equipped with 21-megapixel rear cameras and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras.

Be sure to check back soon for our hands-on impressions, and follow along with the live stream and blog below:

Alright, time to go hands on with the new Droids. We’ll be back with our impressions soon, so don’t go anywhere!

Maxx 2 — $16/month

Turbo — $20/month

Turbo 2 — $26/month for 32GB, $30/month for 64GB

Turbo 2 and Maxx 2 will be available on Thursday. You can trade in your existing smartphones for up to $300 off the price of the Droid. You can also trade in a phone with a cracked screen for the first time. They’re really hammering that whole screen thing home.

Flagship device and value device. We’re about to hear pricing and availability details.

5.5-inch Full HD display, up to 128GB with mIcroSD cards (basically identical to the leaks we saw earlier this week).

48 hour battery life with 3630 mAh battery. 8 hours of charge in 15 minutes.

Droid Maxx 2, what do you know!

Snapdragon 810 processor, Quad HD display, 21MP rear camera, 5MP front camera (with wide angle lens).

48 hours of use with “TurboPower” 3760 mAh battery.

Droid Turbo 2 will be the first Droid you can customize on Moto Maker.

Rigid aluminum core, AMOLED flexible display, dual touch layer, interior lens, exterior lens — these are the pieces that make up the ShatterShield.

Took the team three years of simulations and innovations to make Moto ShatterShield.

“Phone are too fragile to survive in our hard world.”

And there’s the Droid Turbo 2. And he just dropped in screen first without a single crack. Not bad!

Shatter-proof screen on the new Droid. We’ll see about that.

Verizon is talking about investing in spectrum and the benefits of the first Droid Turbo (which I assume we’re about to see a sequel to).

Hey, I owned one of those original Droids. Launched on my birthday. Fun fact.

Verizon is reeeeally hyping up this Droid.

Diego Scotti, EVP at Verizon has taken the stage.
