The Motorola Moto X Play is a smartphone with a 5.5 inch, 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 21MP camera, and a 3630 mAh battery. And it’s not currently available in the US, where Motorola only sells the Moto X Pure Edition, which has a bigger, higher-resolution display, more RAM, and a smaller battery.

But soon you may be able to buy a version of the Moto X Play in the United States. Verizon is expected to offer it as the Droid Maxx 2. An official announcement is probably coming October 27th, but details about the new phone keep leaking.

We learned in August that Motorola would probably rebrand the phone as the Droid Maxx 2. This week we got two more clues:

  1. Motorola added its stock email app to the Google Play Store, with one screenshot including the signature, “Sent from my DROID MAXX 2.”
  2. Motorola prematurely posted support documents for the phone to its website. They’ve already been removed.

As TechnoBuffalo notes, the documents confirm that the Verizon version of the phone will have a removable back panel that lets you change the phone’s color or design without using Motorola’s web-based Moto Maker tool.

Unless Verizon and Motorola have made any other changes, we can expect the Droid Maxx 2 to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, up to 32GB of built-in storage, dual ISM card slots, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC.

Verizon is holding an event on October 27th to announce the latest additions to its Droid line of smartphones. It’s likely that the Droid Maxx 2 will be just one of the phones introduced.

  1. Why bother with Motorola? They never update their software anyway. Waste of money to buy their phones..
