Verizon has already launched the Motorola Droid Turbo, which is considered by many a direct competitor to the Nexus 6 and other high-end smartphones. The Droid Turbo does offer great specs and an excellent battery setup with fast charging and long lasting battery life. While the Droid Turbo is currently a Verizon exclusive device, Motorola has just announced that an international version of the handset, called the Moto Maxx will soon be launched. The Moto Maxx will be a welcome addition to the company’s portfolio and will make customers outside the U.S. pretty happy, in our opinion.
We had already seen the Moto Maxx early this Summer, but we didn’t know where to put the supposed handset. Now it seems that it will finally be launched all around the world. The Moto Maxx is already available for purchase in Brazil and should end up in stores in Mexico by the end of the month. It seems that Latin American countries will be the first ones to receive the international version of the Droid Turbo, but Europe should soon follow. The Moto Maxx is the same exact copy of the Droid Turbo, save for the Verizon logo on the back.
With this in mind, we should fill you in – or remind you – why the Droid Turbo, and implicitly the Moto Maxx are considered to be among the best launches of the year. The Moto Maxx specs include a 5.2 inch Super AMOLED screen with a 1440*2560 resolution and 656 ppi pixel density, protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Under the hood, we find a quad core Snapdragon 805 CPU and Adreno 420 GPU, backed by 3 GB RAM and either 32 or 64 GB internal storage, with no microSD card slot available. The Moto Maxx camera setup boasts with a 21 MP shooter on the rear, sporting dual-LED flash, autofocus, touch focus and all the standard features you expect. The front camera is a 2 MP sensor, which should be enough for your selfie needs.
The most important part of the Droid Turbo, ehemm, excuse me, the Moto Maxx is the battery, which measures a whopping 3900 mAh and features fast battery charging, as well as wireless charging. Moto Display, Moto Actions, Moto Connect will be available on the new handset, which will come with Android 4.4.4 KitKat out of the box. Android 5.0 Lollipop is also scheduled for the handset later this year. Oh, and the Moto Maxx is also water resistant and features NFC, an IR blaster, Bluetooth 4.0 and LTE. Do you see why this powerhouse is so wanted? The Droid Turbo costs around $600 in the U.S., but the Moto Maxx price hasn’t been revealed by Motorola yet.
