During Motorola’s launch event for the Moto X Pure Edition, Style, Play, and G (3rd gen), the company told us to expect even more phone options later on in the year. We assumed they meant new DROID phones (like the DROID MAXX 2) would arrive, but leaker @upleaks may have revealed another to be on the lookout for. (more…)
Verizon’s DROID MAXX 2, aka the version of Motorola’s Moto X Play that appears to be the only X Play coming to the US, is starting to leak left and right these days. The phone is not official by any means, but it just can’t seem to stay out of sight until Motorola and Verizon have a chance to do that.
Thanks to new images, we now know just about everything, outside of a price and launch date. Here’s what we have. (more…)
You know how we were all disappointed to learn that Motorola’s Moto X Play was skipping the US and instead stopping off at all of our surrounding countries? That’s because it’s more than likely showing up here as the DROID MAXX 2 with Verizon exclusivity. This news shouldn’t shock you, since Motorola made mention during their big event last month that US customers would get other options later in the year. (more…)
Even though the DROID Turbo only began receiving an update to Android 5.1 three weeks ago, another update for the phone is ready this morning. A number of our readers received an invite to a soak test for the update through Motorola’s Feedback Network last night and at least one non-soak tester already received it this morning. (more…)
Welcome to 2015, where your brand new phone will probably look like that guy’s brand new phone and your mom’s brand new phone and your co-worker’s new phone and the bus driver’s new phone and the homeless guy’s new phone, all of which are made by different manufacturers.
Good job, OEMs. (more…)
Yesterday, the folks at HelloMotoHK gave us a look at what they described as the back cover to a new DROID phone from Motorola. This morning, they posted at even bigger image, this time with four different phone backs said to be of (in order, left-to-right) a new DROID Mini, Moto G (3rd gen), the DROID from yesterday, and the new Moto X (3rd gen). While we have no proof as to what any of these phones may or may not be, one thing is for sure, Motorola appears to have settled on a similar design theme for 2015. (more…)
Last week, we told you about a new Motorola device that had stopped off at the FCC looking like the company’s next unlocked flagship phone. It featured a body bigger than the DROID Turbo, supported turbo charging, 802.11ac MiMo WiFi, LTE Advanced, and almost all of the US LTE bands outside of Verizon’s. We speculated that it is the rumored 5.5-inch QHD device currently hiding under codename “Kinzie.”
This morning, after looking through a couple of other recent Motorola FCC filings that could be new Moto G, E, or DROID line variants, we’re pretty sure we found the Verizon equivalent to the phone above. Well, it may be even better than that.
Let’s talk briefly about them all. (more…)
