Motorola released the Droid Turbo 2 which is a high end device. Along with it, Motorola has also released Droid Maxx 2 which is a midrange counterpart of Droid Turbo 2. It tries to offer the features of Droid Turbo 2 at a lower price.
Motorola Droid Maxx 2 has a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 instead of QHD display seen in Turbo 2. Also instead of the shatterproof display, Maxx 2 will be protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Droid Maxx 2 will be powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 405 GPU. This processor is the same which is seen in Moto X Play.
Maxx 2 will feature a 21MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The camera can be activated by performing a simple wrist twist gesture, similar to what we’ve seen on the Moto X line. The front camera is 5MP. The internal storage is 16GB which can be expanded to 128GB with the use of microSD card. It runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.
Motorola Maxx 2 comes with a plastic plate back which can be swapped for 5 different colours. One downside is Maxx 2 will not support Moto Maker.
Motorola Droid Maxx 2 will be released on October 29. It will cost $16 a month from Verizon and if you want to buy outright it will cost you $384.
