DROID Turbo Goes Global as Motorola Moto Maxx

The international version of Verizon’s DROID Turbo leaked several days ago when an invitation to a Motorola launch event popped up in Brazil.

The so-called Motorola Moto Maxx would be launched in Brazil with exactly the same specs and the same design. Even though there were rumors about Motorola launching different versions of the DROID Turbo at other US-based carriers, we didn’t think the global version would go official so soon. Verizon made the DROID Turbo available for purchase less than a week ago and the smartphone has already been launched in other countries. It looks like the Big Red was only able to secure exclusivity over the smartphone in the United States. It will be interesting when exactly the smartphone will be introduced at other carriers in the US, such as AT&T. There’s a high chance that it will happen before the end of the year.

Until then though, it looks like customers in Brazil will be the only ones able to grab Motorola’s new flagship smartphone. Today, Motorola officially confirmed the Moto Maxx would also arrive in Mexico in mid-November. In addition, the smartphone will also be available in other Latin American countries by the end of the year.

It may be launched in Europe and/or Asia by the end of the year

Unfortunately, no details on Moto Maxx’s availability in Europe or Asia have been unveiled yet, but we suspect more info will be shared in the coming weeks. The Moto Maxx, Motorola’s latest flagship smartphone was thought to be the next Nexus smartphone. Given the fact that Google chose to go with a phablet instead, the smartphone has been released under Motorola’s brand and is now being rolled out worldwide. The smartphone boasts a stunning 5.2-inch Quad HD capacitive touchscreen display that supports 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass coating.

In addition, the top-tier handset is armed with a powerful 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, an Adreno 420 graphics processing unit and 3GB RAM. The handset lacks microSD card slot for memory expansion, but packs 32GB of storage inside. Another selling point of the Moto Maxx besides the impressive display would be the 21-megapixel rear-facing camera that can capture 4K video. It’s also worth mentioning that the Moto Maxx is powered by a huge 3,900 mAh battery, which should provide 24 hours of continuous usage, according to Motorola.

Just like DROID Turbo, Motorola Moto Maxx ships with Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating system out of the box, but it has already been confirmed for a Lollipop upgrade soon. The Moto Maxx has been priced at $870 (€700) in Brazil, but the outright price may be different depending on carrier and region.
