DROID Maxx 2 Available Oct 29 For $384

Verizon has now introduced two new devices that have joined the DROID family of smartphones. These are the DROID Turbo 2 and the DROID Maxx 2. In terms of the latter, the DROID Maxx 2 is a follow-up from last year's model although interestingly, also has a relationship with the Moto X Play which was announced a few weeks back and designed for markets outside of the U.S. This is because the DROID Maxx 2 is essentially the Moto X Play but designed for the U.S. market and therefore, re-branded with the DROID name and in the guise of a DROID Maxx 2.

As such and following today's announcement, we finally now have some confirmation on the pricing in place for the DROID Maxx 2 in the U.S. As DROID devices do represent a joint Verizon and Motorola experience, it should not be too surprising that the DROID Maxx 2 will only be available through Verizon. In terms of price, Verizon and Motorola have now confirmed that the off-contract price for the DROID Maxx 2 will be $384. While those looking to pick up the device on a payment plan, will be able to opt for a two-year contract option which will see the cost come in at 24 monthly payments of $16.

In terms of the specs, this is the lesser spec-heavy device of the two newly announced DROID devices, although it is the slightly larger of the two devices. The DROID Maxx 2 comes equipped with a 5.5-inch display along with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the DROID Maxx 2 comes loaded with 2GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor. Storage is set at 16GB as standard, although there is the option to expand thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot (up to 128GB). Of course, one of the big selling points of the DROID Maxx 2 is the battery life as this device not only boasts Turbo Power charging but also comes powered by a big 3,630 mAh battery. As a result, Verizon and Motorola claim consumers can expect a full two days of usage in between charges on the DROID Maxx 2. Additional features on offer include a 21-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
