Going back well before Motorola announced the Moto X Play and Moto X Style in late July, we were tracking evidence pointing to some new Motorola models for Verizon. Nearly as soon as those phones went official, things started clicking into place, with rumors identifying both an upcoming Droid Turbo 2 and Droid Maxx 2 for the carrier. A growing body of evidence has helped establish the Droid Maxx 2 (above) as Verizon’s version of the Moto X Play, while separate finds have attempted to identify the Droid Turbo 2 as a new model, one we’ll likely see arrive internationally as the Moto X Force. Now it’s nearly time to get the official story on these guys, as Verizon and Motorola schedule a launch event.
In just under two weeks, on Tuesday, October 27, the two companies come to New York City to announce their latest collaboration. While the invite doesn’t name the handsets in question, it refers to plans to show off the latest Droids, seemingly confirming that we’ve got multiple smartphones on the agenda – just like rumors have suggested are in the pipeline.
With a 5.5-inch quad HD display, Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, and a 20MP/5MP camera pair, the Droid Turbo 2 should land as Motorola’s new Verizon flagship, replacing last year’s original Turbo. It’s been even longer since we’ve seen an update to the Maxx line, with the Droid Maxx dating all the way back to 2013. Understandably, we’re eager to get final launch details on both, and while we’ve already got a good idea of what to expect in terms of hardware specs, we look forward to learn about just when Verizon intends to make this pair available – and how much it’s looking to charge.
We’ll be there in New York for the announcement in two weeks – check back with us then for full coverage of these new Droids.
