There was widespread dismay when Motorola announced that the cheaper Moto X Play wouldn’t be making its way to the US, and that meant missing out on that bigger 3650mAh battery too. Little did we know that Motorola had a trick up its sleeve for the US.

With the Moto X Play now available pretty much everywhere in the world except the US, it turns out Motorola will be launching the DROID Maxx 2 for Verizon Wireless in the US, which is essentially the Moto X Play renamed, and will be priced at $300.

Motorola categorically stated that the Moto X Play wouldn’t be making it to the US, so we can only assume that the DROID Maxx 2 will be exclusive to Verizon.

Will you be picking one of these up? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. Fuck that. I have my own MVNO, like hell I’m going to switch to Verizon so I can pay $90 a month for a few gigs of data. Does Motorola really think I’m that stupid?
    I’m mostly angry because Motorola seems to have gone back on their claims, and they got my hopes up.
    If the new Nexus devices are this unappealing, I’ll gladly wait another year to upgrade my handset.
