More information about the Verizon exclusive Motorola DROID MAXX 2 is revealed
A new image of the Motorola DROID MAXX 2 has appeared, and it shows the device with the Verizon "check" logo and the DROID insignia on a rubbery, textured back cover. Of course, the word is that the DROID MAXX 2 will be a re-branded version of the Motorola Moto X Play, and will be exclusive to Verizon. The code name for the device is "lux" and it has a model number of XT-1565. The Motorola Moto X Play has two model numbers, XT-1252 and XT-1253.

The main feature of the DROID MAXX is its large capacity battery. The DROID MAXX 2 will continue to pack a larger than average juicer as it contains a 3630mAh battery, a 130mAh bump from the OG model. The amount of RAM inside will stay the same at 2GB. While the phone will get a larger, higher-resolution screen (5.5-inch with a 1080 x 1920 resolution), the DROID MAXX 2 will be a mid-range model powered by the Snapdragon 615 SoC. That means it will feature an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU, along with the Adreno 405 GPU.

While the CPU-Z benchmark test shows 8GB of internal storage, the device should actually have 16GB of native memory. Android 5.1.1 will be pre-installed, and there will be the usual assortment of Verizon bloatware. The DROID MAXX 2 will come with on-screen navigation buttons and a 21MP rear camera.

We await the official announcement from Motorola and Verizon, which should include the launch date and pricing for the Motorola DROID MAXX 2.
