The Moto Maxx is a Droid Turbo for Latin America

The Droid Turbo was one of the more interesting devices announced recently, and it's breaking free of the shackles of Verizon and heading south of the border under a new name: the Moto Maxx. The phone is available today in Brazil from and is coming to Mexico in mid-November; other countries in Latin America will see the high-powered long-lasting smartphone "soon."

All told, the Moto Maxx is the same phone as the Droid Turbo, minus the Droid and Verizon branding. That means it has the same absurd 5.2-inch Quad HD display, 21-megapixel camera shooting 4K video, 64GB of onboard storage, and a casing made of "premium ballistic nylon" over kevlar fiber. There's a lot more to it in our hands-on with the Droid Turbo.

It's also sporting a near-stock Android experience, quite similar to what you would get from a "pure edition" Moto X (2014). That includes Motorola's unique active voice commands, notification lock screen, and more.

While it's nice to see the Droid Turbo getting a release outside of Verizon, and equally encouraging to see such a high-end Android handset destined for Latin America, we're a little disappointed there's no word on it coming to other locales, though there's certainly some exclusivity agreements at play. Let us know if you want a Moto Maxx for yourself, or if a Verizon version is sufficient for you.
