Verizon just invited us to a an event that is taking place on October 27 in New York City. Any guesses as to what the focus will be? Yeah, you already know. It’s for new DROID phones, of course. In fact, the invite says that Verizon and Motorola will unveil DROIDs, as in, multiple DROIDs.
Remember that mysterious Motorola device that showed up in a benchmark, rumors, and at the FCC back in May/June/July on its way to Verizon under the codename “Kinzie” and model number XT1585? It’s the DROID Turbo 2, in case you were wondering. Why it hasn’t arrived yet is beyond us, but we have learned some additional details about the device today. (more…)
Last week, we caught wind of a new Motorola device called the Moto X Force that was said to be on its way to the US as a new DROID Turbo 2. This week, @upleaks posted a photo of this alleged device, DROID branding included. The famed leaker also mentioned that it’s coming to Verizon exclusively – no shocker there. (more…)
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…)
