In the past few weeks, Motorola has been making some impressive headlines. There’s the decision to release the Nexus 6 in China as the Moto X Pro, CEO Rick Osterloh’s recent Twitter defensive against Apple’s Jony Ive, and now another piece of news: the formerly Verizon-only Droid Turbo smartphone may be set for imminent release in India under the name Moto Maxx.
As per a recent tweet, Indian shopping site Flipkart teased a new “turbocharged” Motorola device, complete with Ballistic Nylon, a hallmark of the Droid Turbo:
The Droid Turbo was one of the three flagship devices Motorola released last year, alongside the Moto X (2014 Edition) and the Nexus 6. It was released internationally under the name “Moto Maxx” and featured a 5.2 inch 2560X1440 AMOLED display, Snapdragon 805 CPU, 64GB of on-board storage, 3GB of RAM, and an impressive 20.7 megapixel rear camera and 3900 mAh battery, not to mention the premium materials used in its construction, one option being the aforementioned ballistic nylon.
Motorola will inevitably be spilling the official beans in the near future, but for now all those readers located in India who are interested in familiarizing themselves with the potential progenitor of the Maxx should make sure to look at our Turbo coverage:
