    Rumor has it that The Droid Turbo smartphone by Motorola, which is currently exclusive to US mobile carrier Verizon, might soon launch globally under the company's iconic 'Maxx' branding.
    A Portuguese publication named Tecnoblog has posted an invite from Motorola that suggests the company is gearing up to announce the global roll-out of the smartphone on November 5 at an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. For those unaware, Brazil has been an important market for Motorola in the past, and the company globally unveiled the popular Moto G (first generation) last year at an event in Sao Paulo.

    The invite posted by the Portuguese site does not name a device but the accompanied image strongly points that the smartphone likely to launch is the Droid Turbo itself. In fact, the smartphone in the teaser image is the identical to the Black Ballistic Nylon colour variant of the Droid Turbo listed on the Motorola site.

    Tecnoblog, citing a source, also suggests that Motorola is looking to revive the 'Maxx' brand of smartphones with the new Droid Turbo.

    Revive the MAXX brand. Interesting. It hadn't been a brand in my mind so much as a variation or model.

    I'm sure it will be available everywhere but the US. Same as the Motorola Razr and Razr Maxx. VZW pays big bucks for the exclusivity. I don't think there has ever been a crossover of a VZW Droid branded phone on to another US carrier without the Droid branding.
