The handset is already available in various markets as Moto X Play and will hit the US on October 29 exclusively via Verizon Wireless.

Verizon Wireless announced earlier today the Droid Maxx 2 during a special event held in New York City. This "new" handset comes without any surprises as it turns out to be nothing more than a US carrier-branded Moto X Play. The Moto X Play was only available in Latin America, Europe, and Canada so far.

Motorola Droid Maxx 2 will hit the US on October 29 and has the same specs and features as the internationally available Moto X Play, as mentioned earlier. These include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC with Adreno 405 graphics, 2 GB memory, 16 GB internal storage, and microSD support up to 128 GB. This handset has a 5.5-inch full HD multitouch display, 5 MP front camera, and a generous 21 MP image snapper on the back. The connectivity features available include WiFi, 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, as well as GPS with GLONASS.

While the hardware is fully capable of running Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Motorola Droid Maxx 2 will ship with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and the 6.0 update is only known to be "coming eventually" for now. Verizon charges $384 USD for it - $16 USD per month for 24 months. The Droid Maxx 2 will hit the stores both online and offline on October 29.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
