Neither Motorola nor Verizon have officially announced the oft-rumored DROID Maxx 2 yet, but now the device is all but official thanks to Google.
Google recently updated a Chromecast support page that lists all of the devices that it says work best with Android Screen casting. There are lots of devices on the list, including the Nexus 5X and 6P, Galaxy S6, LG G4, and so on. But near the top of the list is perhaps the most interesting entry: “Droid Maxx 2 (Verizon) or Moto X Play (Rest of World).” That entry has since been deleted, but you can view the cached page here.
So yeah, Google appears to have confirmed the rumors that’ve suggested that the Verizon and Motorola are working on a US version of the Moto X Play called the DROID Maxx 2. We’ve already seen leaked images of the Maxx 2, and we’ve also got its rumored spec list, which includes a 5.5-inch 1920x1080 display, 21-megapixel rear camera, 2GB of RAM, and 3630mAh battery.
There’s still no word on exactly when Motorola and Verizon will come forward and announce the DROID Maxx 2 and the DROID Turbo 2 that’s also rumored to be in the works. However, the DROID Turbo was announced at the end of October last year, so a Maxx 2 and Turbo 2 announcement may not be far off.
