Right on cue, the Moto Maxx has gone official in Brazil today with the handset also expected to arrive in Mexico and Latin American markets as well. Customers in Brazil will be able to get the smartphone right away for 2199 Brazilian Real which is approximately $872. Evidently, it’s not going easy on the customers’ wallets, which is expected considering the hardware on offer.
The Moto Maxx is essentially a rebranded version of the Droid Turbo for South American markets as rumors pointed out over the past few days. Motorola hasn’t specified if the device will make its way to Asia or Europe, but we won’t be surprised if this remains an exclusive to the region. Motorola wouldn’t want the focus of the public to shift from the Nexus 6 which is expected to launch over the coming weeks in key global markets.
The Moto Maxx comes with a 5.2 inch Quad HD display, a 21-megapixel camera on the back, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage (non-expandable), Android 4.4.4 KitKat, a quad core 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 SoC and a 3,900 mAh battery which should easily last two days on a full charge. The device is also supported by Motorola’s Turbo Charger which provides 8 hours of usage with just 15 minutes of charging.
