International variant of Droid Turbo to be called ‘Moto Maxx’ – to be launched in Brazil next month?

Motorola just recently lifted the lid on the Droid Turbo, which is monster of a smartphone. Sadly, the device is exclusive to US network operator Verizon, which is making everyone wonder when the Lenovo-owned phone maker will launch the international version. According to a report, the international version version will be called the “Moto Maxx” and will be launched in Brazil next month.

The news comes to us courtesy of Portuguese-speaking Tecnoblog. The Brazilian blog received an invitation (picture below), which kicks off on the 5th of November. The invitation doesn’t mention the Droid Turbo, but it does show the back of the device including one of its LED flashes. We can’t confirm if this is the Droid Turbo, but it looks a lot like the official images of the smartphone (shown above).


The invitation doesn’t mention what the international version of the Droid Turbo will be called. Motorola normally launches international versions of Droid devices with the “Droid” moniker dropped. However, it seems this isn’t the case here. According to Technoblog, it will be called the “Moto Maxx,” which is a moniker Motorola trademarked earlier this 2014.

Of course, since this is anything but official, take it with a pinch of salt. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait very long to find out, since the 3rd of November is just around the corner.
