DROID MAXX 2 all but confirmed in new leaked photos

Yesterday we got a look at DROID MAXX 2’s rear panel, which appears to be a repurposed version of Motorola’s Moto X Play. Now the device has leaked again, courtesy of Android Police, and this time there’s enough information to pretty much confirm the rumored Verizon smartphone.

Behind that rear shell, which features clear DROID and Verizon branding, we get a look at some of the new phone’s specs. The DROID MAXX 2 apparently packs a 3630mAh battery and a 21-megapixel rear camera. That lines up perfectly with the Moto X Play, suggesting we’ll also get a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 615 processor.

Android Police points to one small red flag. It looks like the DROID MAXX 2 will start at just 8GB of storage. That’s a pretty big step down from the 16GB/32GB Moto X Play, though hopefully the new device will pack a microSD card slot for adding extra space.

The Moto X Play is set to cost around $300 outside of the U.S., so we’re guessing the DROID MAXX 2 will have a similar price. Motorola and Verizon are also expected to announce a DROID Turbo 2 with what is said to be an unbreakable display, and the new devices should get an official launch soon.
