    With all of the hullabaloo surrounding the hot new Droid Turbo 2, we can't forget that Verizon also announced the Droid MAXX 2, too. :p

    It's not as powerfully built as the hot new Droid Turbo 2, and in fact, it surprisingly has a smaller battery than the Droid Turbo 2, but it seems like it is meant to fill the mid-range market segment. Just as predicted, this device is basically a rebranded version of the Moto X Play.

    Here's a breakdown of specs:
    • 5.5-inch 1080p display
    • Snapdragon 615 processor
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 21MP camera
    • 3630 mAh battery - 48 hour battery life - 8 hours of charge in 15 minutes.
    • A microSD card slot
    • Android Lollipop 5.1 (with Marshmallow eventually to follow - probably)
    This device will NOT be available on Moto Maker, but you can do some minor customization with removable back covers. Verizon is pricing this device at $16/month, and it will also be available Thursday (Oct. 29th).

    The same smartphone trade-in info applies to the Droid MAXX 2 as it does for the Droid Turbo 2.

    Of course. They need their "team" to test it and make sure marshmallow will work. Why else would a brand new "flagship" not have the latest?

    How long until they get mm, a month, 6 months, a year?

    Moto said in a round about way that vzw was the hold up for the turbo getting lollipop.. And definitely for it not having working voLTE at release...

    Moto needs vzw , to stay afloat..sadly..so moto let's vzw do whatever.. If I were moto..I'd develop some really catchy devices and bypass vzw..they need to do something to get a bigger market share....
