Mexico will be next destination for the device, where it will reach by mid-November followed by other Latin American countries. The Global version is not different from the Droid turbo launched in United States.

There are some specific aspects that is unique to this device, which includes the turbo charging that charges the device for 8 hours of battery life with just 15 minutes of charging. Another key aspect is the Ballistic Nylon build which makes the device extra durable.

Moto Maxx comes with some superficial specifications that I have listed at the end of this article. The 3,900 mAh battery is unusually big even when compared with other premium devices in its class like the Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro, LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

Moto Maxx is powered by a Quad-core 2.7 GHz Krait 450 CPU paired with Adreno 420. The chipset used is Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. There is 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB/ 64 GB internal storage memory.
