Still after months of speculation and leaks, we haven’t seen the official Motorola Droid Maxx 2 from Verizon. Not that we’re doubting it will ever arrive in the country because it’s simply just the Moto X Play but we want to know when exactly and for how much.
After a couple of months, Google is confirming its arrival although not officially–accidentally. A Chromecast support page was spotted listing Droid Maxx 2 as one of the “Optimized devices for Android Screen casting” together with Android One, Moto X Pure Edition in North America, Moto X Style, Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 5X, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, and Nexus 7.
We’re guessing Google just made a slip up here listing a Verizon Droid Maxx 2 when it’s not yet officially launched. We believe it’s only a matter of time before Verizon makes the official announcement—still as an exclusive deal.
So far, we know the upcoming Moto Droid Maxx 2 will feature a 5.5-inch screen, 21MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, 2GB RAM, Snapdragon 615 SoC, and a 3630mAh battery. It’s basically the Moto X Play so we’re assuming the smartphone will also have a 16GB or 32GB built-in storage, and 1080p display screen. We can expect it to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box and will soon be upgradeable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Other specs include Bluetooth version 4.0 LE, WiFi, NFC, 3G, and 4G/LTE connectivity.
