Motorola slips, confirms DROID MAXX 2 with screenshot from new Moto Email app
As you know, Motorola and Verizon will be holding an event on October 27th that is DROID related. We expect that both the Motorola DROID MAXX 2 and the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 will see the light of day during the event, which will take place in New York City. The DROID MAXX 2 will be a special Verizon branded version of the Motorola Moto X Play, while the DROID Turbo 2 will be a Verizon exclusive version of the Motorola Moto X Force. That model is expected to offer a shatterproof screen.
Earlier this month, Google confirmed accidentally that the DROID MAXX 2 will be a rebranded Moto X Play. Google posted a list of Android devices optimized for Screen casting, and listed the DROID MAXX 2 by noting that it would be given that name for Verizon, and called the Moto X Play for the rest of the world.
The MAXX line is known for its large capacity batteries. The Motorola DROID MAXX featured a 3500mAh cell, and the Moto X Play has a 3630mAh juicer; assuming no changes, the DROID MAXX 2 will get a small 130mAh, or 3.7% hike in battery capacity.
Thanks for the tip!
