    Here are a few exciting leaked pics of a new Motorola device coming to the US. Supposedly, the Moto X Play will end up hitting North American shores after all, but with the Droid MAXX 2 branding. The various backs of the Droid MAXX 2 is what these images depict.

    Based upon the specs of the Moto X Play, the Droid MAXX 2 will not be a full fledged flagship phone, which could be disappointing to some. That doesn't mean there won't be a Moto flagship launch though. Along with the leaked pics, some new intel surfaced as well. Supposedly, the Droid MAXX 2 will not be alone, but will be accompanied by a new Droid Turbo 2 device, which will be the flagship.

    So, perhaps this news story is a "good news, bad news" deal? What do you folks think?

    The rest of the images are in the thread below.

    :( I hope not..the current turbo is its own device..these make it appear that the new turbo will be a moto x looking device... No thanx..
    If the turbo 2 isn't a flagship..then what is the droid flagship going to be?? Haven't been hearing a bunch from leaks this year..unlike last year..

    I'm betting the Turbo 2 will still carry some of the design language of the original Turbo. Also, the OP says that the MAXX 2 won't be a flagship, but will be accompanied by the Turbo 2, which will be a flagship device.

    Of course, this is all if these rumors are true. ;)

    No buddy. This thread is about 2 different devices. the MAXX 2, who's back plates are pictured and the Turbo 2. There's no reason to believe the Turbo will look like the Moto X, because the MAXX 2 is the one that's the Moto X Play.

    Although he does have a point... It's possible the Droid Turbo could end up looking similar. Hopefully we will have more info and leaked pics on the Droid Turbo soon too.

    The moto maxx..is a gsm variant of the turbo in current production..

    Hence my reasoning...the maxx2 and the turbo 2 will probably hold similar form factors...one being gsm and the other being what appears to be a mid level vzw variant...either way..these pics look like the motox...and pretty similar to the g3 as well..yuck...

    I didn't know that. I'm thinking of the RAZR MAXX I think. Haha!

    I get your point now.
