Verizon to offer Motorola Moto X Play as the DROID MAXX 2?

Verizon to offer Motorola Moto X Play as the DROID MAXX 2?
According to a Motorola focused tipster, the Motorola Moto X Play, which is now available on the Moto Maker site in the U.K., Germany, and Canada, is coming to the U.S. after all. The rumor is that the Moto X Play will be coming to Verizon, re-branded as the Motorola DROID MAXX 2. Keep in mind that this story should be taken with a grain of salt, so make sure you have the shaker by your side.

Of course, the main feature of the Motorola DROID MAXX is its 3500mAh battery that Motorola says will provide up to 48 hours of battery life. But the Moto X Play features a 3630mAh cell, which could be enough of a bump for it to earn the DROID MAXX 2 moniker.

The Moto X Play features a 5.5-inch screen carrying a 1080 x 1920 resolution screen. That works out to a pixel density of 401ppi. The Snapdragon 615 chipset drives the device, carrying an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable storage. The camera combo from back to front is 21MP/5MP, and Android 5.1 is pre-installed.

Another rumor involves the sequel to the highly-spec'd Motorola DROID Turbo. Now 10-months old, the Turbo could use a refresh and one appears to be on the way with the Motorola DROID Turbo 2. But unlike the rumor about the DROID MAXX 2, the DROID Turbo 2 is expected to be a completely new device, built from scratch.
