Motorola may have just announced the DROID Turbo with Verizon not too long ago, but that hasn’t stopped their international plans at all. On Wednesday, November 5, the Lenovo-owned company officially announced the Moto Maxx for Brazil, Mexico and other Latin American countries.

The Moto Maxx is similar to the DROID Turbo in several aspects, and mainly in all of the right ways. The Moto Maxx boasts the same 5.2-inch QHD display, which features a pixel per inch count of 565. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor which Motorola calls “the most powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon processor,” which probably makes it the Snapdragon 805 (which is also found in the DROID Turbo). The same 21-megapixel camera is on the back, which can record 4K video. Inside, there’s the same 3900mAh battery.

The Moto Maxx also comes with 64GB of built-in storage, a ballistic nylon outer shell with a layer of Kevlar beneath that for good measure and 4G LTE connectivity.

Motorola has confirmed that the Moto Maxx will be available for purchase through its online store in Brazil beginning November 5, and it will launch in Mexico come mid-November. It will be launching in other Latin American countries “soon.”

What do you think of Motorola’s newest high-end handsets?

    Although I’m completely happy with my Note 4, I do still realize that Motorola is missing a golden opportunity with the DROID Turbo/Moto Maxx! If this phone were to be released on the big 4 in the U.S., it would sell great! I know the Note series is too large for many, and this screen size is perfect. There’s absolutely no way Verizon is giving them more than this OconWhile I’m happy with my Note 4, I still realize that Motorola is missing a golden opportunity with the DROID Turbo/Moto Maxx! If this phone were to be released on the big 4 in the U.S., it would sell great! Motorola is already a well known and respected manufacturer in many aspects of electronics, plus they just recently released a successful Android phone. For many people this phone would solidify their reputation/name in the U.S Android phone market, and prove they are not afraid to compete with the larger manufacturers. There’s absolutely no way Verizon is paying them as much as they would profit if it were being sold on the big 4!
