Motorola files trademark for ‘MOTO MAXX’, leaves us hoping for another Moto variant


Motorola Moto Maxx trademark

We know Chicago-based Motorola is gearing up to give their flagship “Moto” line another run this year. While we’re still in search of leaks or any information on exactly what we can expect from the Motorola Moto X+1 (we certainly have our guesses), it’s Motorola’s famous Droid line that still has everyone guessing.

Is it possible we will see followups to the Droid RAZR, Droid RAZR MAXX, and Droid Mini this year? Maybe not in name (LucasFilms’ “Droid” trademark was used for Motorola’s Verizon exclusive devices), but a recent trademark filing is hinting towards a rebranding, at least for the Maxx variant. A “Moto Maxx” trademark, filed by Motorola on July 22nd, was recently uncovered at the US Trademark and Patent Office. While the trademark doesn’t tell us much about Motorola’s plans, we can always speculate.

It’s possible that Motorola’s new focus on global brand recognition (Moto E, Moto G, Moto X), they could see the manufacture scrapping the US-only Droid line altogether. Should that be the case, finding a customizable Moto Maxx variant on Motomaker is sure to leave battery hungry Android enthusiasts salivating. What say ye? If Motorola offers a bigger batteried Moto X+1 (for a premium, of course), would any of you bite?

  2. I recently went from a Note 3 to a used Droid Maxx and love it. The better reception, and better battery life more than make up for the smaller, lower res screen. I would definitely like a X+1 Maxx.

  4. No more Verizon exclusives? Thank.goodness.

  5. Ok. So this “MAXX” is “shamu”, right? Makes sense.
