Motorola announces the Moto Maxx as a non-US Droid Turbo variant, but it may not launch it globally
The Moto Maxx that we told you about not long ago is real! Motorola today announced the handset in Brazil, confirming that it’s a non-US, non-CDMA version of Verizon’s Droid Turbo.

Unlike the Droid Turbo, which is available with, or without a Ballistic Nylon back panel, in 32 GB and 64 GB variants, the Moto Maxx only comes in a 64 GB Ballistic Nylon version. That aside, the Maxx offers exactly the same features that the Droid Turbo has.

The Moto Maxx runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and is definitely one of the best handsets ever made by Motorola. It’s a high-end device with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, 20.7 MP rear camera, quad-core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3900 mAh battery. Just like the Droid Turbo, the Moto Maxx is splash-resistant, weighs 176 grams, and measures 143.5 x 73.3 x 11.2 mm.

Starting today, the Moto Maxx is available in Brazil for 2,199 reais, meaning about $870. The handset will be released in mid-November in Mexico, and in other Latin American markets a bit later. Unfortunately, Motorola said nothing regarding the smartphone's launch in other countries, so for now it doesn't look like this is a global device in the true meaning of the word.
