Motorola DROID MAXX for Verizon unveiled with a battery good for two full days of Androiding
Out of the DROID trio announced by Verizon and Motorola today, the MAXX handset was the one with the biggest mystery behind it, namely what will be the battery capacity in the newest member of the MAXX endurance king line.
The answer is 3500 mAh, which is 200 mAh more than its predecessor, and the kind of capacity only phablets get equipped with nowadays, and cited for up to 48 hours of battery life. That capacity is keeping the lights on a very interesting set of specs - 5" HD OLED display (not PenTile), 1.7 GHz homemade processor, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. Exact dimensions go as follows: 137.5x71.20x8.5 mm, so pretty thin despite the giant battery, and fairly light for a 5-incher at 160 grams, or 5.6 ounces.
The "Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System" SoC sports 1.7 GHz dual-core application processor, 400 MHz quad-core GPU, natural language processor, and a contextual computing processor, for an octa-core concoction, claims Moto.
The 10 MP camera on the back sports the new ClearPixel technology, which applies different RGBC color filter than the traditional Bayer RGBG one, bringing in more photons at low-light scenarios thus dealing better with blur and noise, at least on theory. The kicker is in the pricing, and it will rock you $299.99 for a two-year contract, and the phone is shipping August 20th.
