Moto Maxx

Motorola’s super powerful Droid Turbo isn’t limited to the US customers, after all. The company has officially made an announcement of the Moto Maxx, the Non-US variant of the same Droid Turbo phone with a 5.2-inch Quad HD display. The Maxx will be a non-CDMA version, unlike the CDMA Droid Turbo that was limited to the Verizon network.

Offering all the same features, the Moto Maxx will be available in Ballistic Nylon option, with only 64GB storage variant in store (while the Turbo was available with/without the same and with 32/64GB options). Apart from that, there is a variant with metalized glass fiber reinforced with DuPont kevlar. This fiber is said to be five times stronger than steel. The Moto Maxx runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and the Lolipop update for the same will be released soon.

It is the same specs that power the Droid Turbo, including a 5.2-inch display with a 2K resolution (2560×1440 pixels), and Snapdragon 805 processor clocking at 2.7 GHz, with 3GB RAM. One of the best points about this is the 3900 mAh battery. The splash-resistant (water repellent nano coating under Gorilla glass display) Moto Maxx has a 20.7-megapixel camera on the rear side and it has the support for Turbo charging technology that was introduced with Droid Turbo.

The Turbo charging technology is capable of charging the 3900 mAh battery from zero to hundred percent in about three hours. Although the details aren’t given, the Qi wireless charging capability is expected on this device as well.

The smartphone has connectivity options including 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC. Starting today, the Brazilian market will sell the Moto Maxx for the price of 2,199 reais (which is around $875). There is no word from Motorola about the availability and pricing of the Moto Maxx in the markets outside Brazil and Mexico. In Mexico, the availability is around mid-November, and it will soon hit a few other Latin American countries.

    is the droid turbo gsm instead? and great that this isnt locked. great phone just hindered by Verizon

  • Joshua Akinsola

    brazil and mexico are going to get to experience a nice device. finally the droid deserves to be shared with all and not region locked. I was dumb for skipping over, “The Maxx will be a non-CDMA version, unlike the CDMA Droid Turbo that was limited to the Verizon network.”
    It wont be gsm dumb me.

    “Apart from that, there is a variant with metalized glass fiber reinforced with DuPont kevlar. This fiber is said to be five times stronger than steel”

    Thats insane pretty sure if u had this phone in your chest pocket and a gunman came by, your life would be saved by the strength of the material

    • Cannot rely on this to save your life though 😉

      • yeah that’s definitely true lol, the materials are used for combat gear though so that’s funny!

  • MANJIT SARMA

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    Moto series is so demanding in india.

    • Suraj Racharla

      Really?

    • how so? i know the droids arent available thee

  • Nikhil Narkhede

    Are they going to launch this phone in INDIA?

    • i dont think its going to hit indian market unfortunately which is bad because india is a huge market. Their availability is very limited to the americas so probably not maybe one day it will or some type of variant will hit indian markets…Hope for the best!

  • Jugal Mudoi

    Everything looks amazing of this phone but the sad part is Motorola always prefer to remain ignorance about the huge Indian market…I really don’t know is there any hope about the availability of this one in India?

    • They have been pushing other devices well, but these few phones are usually limited to US and Latin America.

    • i dont think its going to hit indian market unfortunately which is bad because india is a huge market. Their availability is very limited to the americas

  • $875 are you kidding me??

    • It has what it needs to be priced at $875.

      • i agree this phone isnt lacking in any aspect and is worth top dollar I personally cant afford this but many can and will buy because of its power. Its a droid turbo!

  • Suraj Racharla

    Motorola is finally showing development but i think its only because google allowed them to make the Nexus 6 and mtorola will get the new android updates. Also i dint know that this phone is demading in India!!! This phone is going to be a phone that will be famous world wide. First one for motorola i think

  • Nebu Cherian

    Is there any chance for India launch?

    • Very little chances for now. No mention about other markets on Motorola website.

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    $875 ohh com’on this is too costly than note 4

  • this is still a nic really nice phone for brazil and mexico but the pricing nothing should be pricier then the note 4 its top of the line and to be more expensive than that is to near luxury phone status

  • Shanky Yadav Jungly

    this is beacause it has a quality which cant be ignored
