If you look with envy at certain Motorola smartphones that are being released exclusively to some US carriers, then we have some great news to share. Motorola has made official the Moto Maxx, which is basically the global variant of the Verizon-exclusive DROID Turbo smartphone, sporting pretty much the same specs.
The smartphone has the same 5.2 inch 1440×2560 pixels AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection and it runs Android 4.4 KitKat. But with Android 5.0 Lollipop around, it will be a real pity of Motorola won’t make a quick update to the latest version.
The device is powered by a 2.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor with 600 MHz Adreno 420 GPU and features a powerful 21-megapixel rear camera with dual LED flash, 4K video recording and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Motorola’s Moto Max has 3GB RAM, 64GB internal storage and packs a 3900mAh battery which should offer up to 48 of battery life in mixed use. However, if you buy the Motorola Turbo Charger, as well, then you will be able to get eight hours of power in a quick 15 minute charge. The smartphone is also water resistant and weighs 176 grams. On the connectivity chapter, it comes with 4G LTE / 3G, WiFi 802.11a/g/b/n/ac (dual band), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, GPS, GLONASS and NFC.
The Motorola Moto Maxx is currently available in Black Ballistic Nylon version and is available for folks in Brazil for a price of around $875 unlocked. It will be available in Mexico in mid-November, but right now we don’t know when and how much will it cost for folks in Europe and Asian countries. But let’s hope it will be available for a cheaper price.
