Motorola’s new Moto Maxx, the international version of the DROID Turbo, may not be showing its face in Europe. That’s according to a tweet published by Motorola France in response to questions about a possible European debut in the future.
The Moto Maxx will be launching in Central and South American markets, Motorola has confirmed — unlike the original DROID Turbo, which is exclusive to Verizon in the United States. However, hopes of a European launch appear to have been quashed.
In a tweet published on Monday, Motorola France told fans that the Maxx would not be appearing in France or any other European countries, BGR reports. However, the tweet has since been deleted, which suggests the statement may not have been entirely accurate.
If true, the news will come as a disappointment to Android fans in Europe who won’t be able to get their hands on the Moto Maxx’s impressive feature set, which includes a 5.2-inch Quad HD display, a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, and a massive 3900mAh battery that boasts Motorola’s new Turbo Charge feature.
But you probably shouldn’t be too disappointed until this is confirmed by Motorola once and for all. Motorola handsets have traditionally been pretty successful in Europe — particularly more recent ones like the Moto G — so it seems a little strange that the company wouldn’t want to launch what is considered one of its best smartphones of 2014 there.
TechnoBuffalo has reached out to the company for clarification on its Moto Maxx launch plans, and we’ll update this post when we get a response.
