Motorola's deal with Verizon meant that it was always likely that the Moto X Play would come to the US, just not as the Moto X Play. Now, Android Police believe that they've scored some photos of the handset that has now been rechristened as the Droid Maxx 2. The only notable difference that the site can find between the two is that this version of the device is only packing 8.14GB of internal storage. That could simply be a pre-production issue or a sign that Big Red wants to trim the price down to well below the $476 it sells for over in the UK. Let's hope that our new corporate masters don't keep us waiting long before this phone hits stores -- we hate being kept in suspense.
