Motorola has been one of the few companies that have stubbornly insisted to offer devices with long battery life, when most manufacturers decided that shaving another millimeter off the profile of their products is more important than a few extra hours of usage time. Because when your phone dies on you, you just love how thin it feels in your pocket, right?
We’re glad to see that Moto hasn’t given up on extra-large batteries. The company is working with Verizon to offer a new line of Droid devices, and at least one of them is apparently going to offer 48 hours of battery life, according to a leaked ad storyboard published by Android Central.
Don’t mind Daniel Craig and Halle Berry making an appearance on the storyboard, those were probably just some random hot people pics used for illustration. The same goes for the device in the image.
Now, claims that companies make in ads are not always backed by real life performance, but even if the Droid Maxx won’t actually get you through 48 hours of round the clock operation, it will probably still last longer than the Galaxy S4, HTC One, or other cream of the crop Android devices.
The 2012 Droid Razr Maxx HD is 9.3 millimeters thick and rocks a 3300 mAh battery, which is to this day, the best you can get on a mainstream smartphone without an extended battery. According to Verizon, the Maxx HD can power through 13 hours of straight video playback or eight hours of web browsing over LTE. Will the Droid Maxx top the Droid Razr Maxx HD when it comes to battery? We should find out soon.
In addition to the new Droid phones for Verizon, Motorola is also gearing up to launch the Moto X, another device that we hope will come with extensive usage time. Back in April, Google CEO Larry Page hinted at what would make future Moto devices special, including better battery life and durability. Here’s hoping for a new generation of large battery, extra durable devices.
