Motorola is holding an event on Tuesday in which the company will announce its new flagship devices, including the highly anticipated next generation Moto X and Moto G. But according to a new leak by the popular Twitter user, Evan Blass (better known as @evleaks), Motorola might surprise the whole tech community with a few more smartphones and gadgets. Blass sent out a tweet in which three new devices were mentioned, indicating that Motorola will most likely not only showcase the new Moto X and Moto G as previously thought. The newly leaked devices include a successor to the DROID MAXX, called the DROID MAXX II; an alleged new version of the Moto hint or a possible Bluetooth speaker, called Moto Surround, and a brand new product called Moto X Play, which suggests a gaming service or even a gaming controller case. Motorola hasn’t had much luck keeping its upcoming gadgets a secret as the company has faced a great number of serious leaks over the past few weeks, specially about the upcoming new Moto G.
Evan Blass only tweeted the name of the three products, without making public any details about them. Although the function two of the three devices might not be clear enough from the name alone, the DROID MAXX II is surely a successor to the DROID MAXX. The original device was released last year and gained quite a lot of popularity thanks to the incredibly large 3500mAh battery. The Motorola DROID MAXX also featured a 5-inch display with a 720p resolution and a 10MP rear-facing camera; all powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 with a clock speed of 1.7GHz with 2GB of RAM. The DROID MAXX was truly an impressive device when compared to the other devices Motorola had available at the time of its release. This makes the anticipation for the DROID MAXX II quite high, as it will most likely feature an even bigger battery with better overall specs.
The Moto Surround and Moto X Play only had their names leaked, which leads to pure speculation about the two devices. The Moto Surround name suggest that it will be most likely related to sound, which could probably be the name of the new Moto Hint that was released by Best Buy a few days ago. On the other hand, the Moto X Play could be a new gaming service app, or a gaming controller case for the Moto X; But a rumor also pointed that the Moto X Play could also be a completely new variant of the smartphone, and will hold some similarities to the Sony Xperia Play that was released several years ago. Motorola will either confirm prove wrong all of these rumors on Tuesday during the company’s conference in New York.
