Motorola Moto Maxx (Droid Turbo global version) smiles for the camera
Not long ago, we told you that Motorola would soon announce a global version of its Droid Turbo. The announcement should take place in Brazil on November 5 - two days from now. It looks like the global variant of the Droid Turbo is called Motorola Moto Maxx (just as previously rumored).

Someone in Brazil is already testing the Moto Maxx, and posted photos of the handset on Google+, including some images that all but confirm its final name. As expected, the Moto Maxx seems to be identical to the Droid Turbo, thus featuring a 5.2-inch display with 1440 x 2560 pixels, a 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, a 20.7 MP rear camera, 64 GB of internal memory, and a huge 3900 mAh battery with Turbo Charging capabilities. Stock Android 4.4.4 KitKat will run the show. 

It’s not the first time when a Verizon-exclusive Motorola Droid is about to be released in other markets under a different name (since the Droid brand can be used only by Verizon). Unfortunately, for now we don’t know when (or if) the Moto Maxx will be available in other countries besides Brazil. But let's hope we’ll hear more on this later this week. Until then, you should read our Motorola Droid Turbo review here.

Please release this bad boy in France ASAP. I can't help thinking about a nov 5 launch date in Europe but it sounds too good to be true.

I do not understand this strategy of motorola.
The buttons on the android 5 will be refurbished.
Why release a phone with outdated and capacitive buttons, the trend is all be virtual like google own invented !

Samsung, the biggest Android manufacturer, still uses hardware and capacitive buttons, so I don't see why Motorola can't...

They're doing it to save some screen real estate i guess. If you notice how this device is engineered and how it has to compensate for the heating of the SoC, the screen, the antennae, and the battery (during charging and otherwise) they probably needed the space anyway...

I beg to disagree! Some people still prefer physical or capacitive buttons on their phones! Not those on screen navigation!!! You bought a huge phone yet you can't use everything with that on the screen!

I'm more partial to onscreen buttons myself but I'm glad the buttons aren't the shapes that are present in Android 5.0.

And in a device as complete as this I would be willing to compromise.

I really enjoy onscreen buttons on my N4, but yea, if that's the only "sacrifice" I had to make, then bring it on.

I think differently.
Where is capacitive could be virtual button and some application or games virtual buttons could disappear.

Haven't use Motorola since the xoom tablet, but this beast is an ideal phone this year. Hope Moto unleash gsm variant quickly in the market.

Of course it will be gsm capable. Even the Turbo is. It just need the unlock code or that Verizon unlocks it.

This is exatly what I expected from phones in the begining of the year. SD 805, 3Gb of RAM, more battery capacity, a next step camera.

And instead we got mostly SD 801 (warmed-over 800), 2 GB. Which phones like the LG G2 already had last fall. But that's pretty much what happened in 2012-early 2013 with the S4 Pro/SD 600. At least Nexus 5 owners don't feel like their phones are obsolete already.

Now to find out how long VZW has USA exclusivity. Hopefully its only a month. I can wait that long... otherwise I might just F the world and get an N6 despite its size.

If my only other choices are S5 and G3, I might as well go the lil bit bigger and get a nexus, which is where the fun really is.

If they follow their past strategy, it will be indefinitely. The Motorola Droid never had an official US GSM version. IIRC it was available in Europe and Canada but never the US. I don't know this firsthand, but many say putting a T-Mobile Sim card allows it to work on their network, I've heard of some using the Droid Maxx on StraightTalk also. Don't know about AT&T.

Some droid turbo owners said that the've recieved an update fixed the brightness issue.

I got the update while I was setting up my phone so I can't say the difference from before it, but at full brightness it hurts my eyes if I'm inside. That's good enough for me.

how is it to buy a verizon phone to use in european countries? are they factory gsm unlocked from the box, or do they need some extra tinkering? the turbo is already global gsm capable.. just wondered..
