Motorola Droid Maxx 2 With 3630mAh Battery, 21-Megapixel Camera Launched
Alongside the launch of the Droid Turbo 2, at its media event on Tuesday, Motorola also unveiled the Droid Maxx 2. Unlike its bigger sibling that comes with top-of-the-line specifications, the Droid Maxx 2 eyes the mid-range market segment.
The successor to last year’s Droid Maxx, the Motorola Droid Maxx 2 sports a 5.5-inch display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.7GHz and Adreno 405 GPU, paired with 2GB of RAM, and comes with 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 128GB using a microSD card.
Borrowing some elements from the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, the Droid Maxx 2 also comes equipped with a 21-megapixel rear-camera dual-LED flash with f/2.0 aperture and Phase Detect Auto-Focus (PDAF) capability, and a 5-megapixel wide-lens front-facing selfie camera. There’s a 3630mAh battery that can last for up to 48 hours under mixed use on a single charge, as per Motorola’s claims. Motorola Droid Maxx 2 is not waterproof phone, but it comes with a water repellent coating.
Like all Droid phones, the Motorola Droid Maxx 2 is Verizon-only. There’s no word on international availability just yet. It will be available in the United States at a price point of $384 (roughly Rs. 25,000) off-contract starting later this month.
The single-SIM capable Droid Maxx 2 supports 4G LTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, CDMA, and other standard connectivity options. On the software front, the handset runs Android 5.1.1 with several apps from Verizon pre-installed. The handset comes in two different colours: Black with Deep Sea Blue Back and White with Winter White Back.
