    I would totally get a phone called the Abbagoochie, just so I could say, "Let me check my Abbagoochie."

    Default Droid maxx codename

    Soo the title says it all. The new codename for the new maxx is out and about and I have to say I am excited to see what they bring to the table. Rumors have it a snapdragon 801 is going to be running it. I hope they add more ram. What does everyone else want done differently this time?

    Hope they keep the Kevlar...or move up to carbon fiber....keep Amoled...maybe go super premium...sapphire the like... Droid MAXX should be the very finest Verizon offers... It must have a premium feel...go lux or just be an also ran.

    Its about time they came out with something. I hope they can get some thin bezels so the phone doesn't get much larger. Hopefully someone besides LG is capable of that feat.

    They announced late July last year - I'm sure that the schedule is once a year. I just wonder if they think it might be smarter/more profitable to come out after Android L or try to sell before the new iPhones every year. I suspect it's the latter so I'd guess that every August or so each year there'll be an update to the Droid line.

    Very true. I cannot wait to see the rest of the specs. I was hoping for a snapdragon 805 and 3g of ram. That's really all I would want plus a higher resolution screen. Keep the battery life where it is at then it will be another home run. I have an upgrade coming due in August so I am anxious to see if they will have a decent leak by then

    They just need to make sure the batter life doesn't decrease at all. I'd be plenty happy with a 1080 screen. No need to go to the craziness of the G3. 5.2" is plenty large if they can have small bezels. The camera does need some improvement.

    Default Re: Motorola DROID MINI, DROID MAXX successors

    I am extremely excited to hear the Droid Maxx line will be continuing this year. My guess on specs:

    5.1 inch screen packed into a phone the same size as the Droid Maxx
    Snapdragon 801
    3800 mAh battery (similar battery life to Droid Maxx)
    1080 screen
    3g ram
    32 GB storage (minimum)
    Hopefully Kevlar back remains in place
    Could see Moto getting rid of capacitative Home, Back, and Recent Apps buttons and putting them on screen

    When can we expect a more formal announcement on the Droid Maxx and Droid Mini successors?

    Probably around the same time as the X+1/360 announcement.
    Motorola Moto X (212.55.26.ghost_verizon.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.4) - Motorola Moto 360 (LWX48T, Lollipop 5.0.1) - Motorola Moto G (210.12.41.falcon_cdma.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.4)

    So, my question is, if it's running the 801. Does that mean, that the new MAXX, wouldn't have all the contextual awareness of the current MAXX? Meaning, the always listening, Moto asset, all of the nice features that would be hard to give up! Motorola, please leave all that stuff in the new MAXX!!

    From nobody who actually knows when the products will be announced. The only people who do know work at Verizon and Motorola and are not willing nor able to say until the official announcement is made. The phones will come when they come.

    For what it's worth, the current Droid lineup was announced a couple weeks before the Moto X. Not that that necessarily has any relevance to what'll happen this time around, but the Droids were announced late July, MotoX early August. So if they stick with a similar schedule, it could be any day now.

    I wonder if the Moto Maxx will be a separate phone from the Droid Maxx? If the rumors of the Moto X being a 5.2 inch screen are true, it wouldn't make sense to have a Moto Maxx and a Droid Maxx, right? The only way this would make sense is if the Moto Maxx is a 5.2 inch screen and the Droid Maxx became more a phablet with a huge battery (say, 5.7 inch screen).

    Let's say the Moto Maxx was a 5.2 inch screen with a 3800 mAh battery and the Droid Maxx was a 5.7 inch screen with a 4000 mAh battery. Which one would you buy?

    For many years moto sold versions of the Droids as non Droid versions. The milestone keyboard phones sold overseas, for example. I tend to think that moto is prevented by contract from selling these phones that match the Droids in the US. Still, a moto Maxx may just be a moto x+1 with a larger battery.

    I guess we'll see when we see...
