Verizon Motorola Droid Maxx shamelessly trades in 16GB of storage for two new colors

Remember the Motorola Droid Maxx, the Verizon-exclusive Moto X cousin which was unveiled back in July last year? This phone has been blessed with two new color options by the Big Red carrier, but there’s a catch the new development. The ‘glossy red’ and the ‘black with chrome accents’ variants only feature 16GB of memory as opposed to the original device’s 32GB storage.

This is particularly disappointing since the Motorola Droid Maxx does no feature a microSD card slot. As pointed out by Unwired View, both the new models have already hit the carrier’s website and can be purchased now at $99.99 with a two-year agreement or at $499.99 without any contract. As opposed to this, the 32GB model which comes dressed in a black shade costs $149.99 on a two-year deal and $599.99 without one.

The Droid Maxx from Verizon boasts of a 3500mAh battery which can offer 48 hours of usage on a single complete charge. It features a 720p HD display of 5 inches in size, aside from a 10MP camera.

Like we said, the Motorola Droid Maxx by Verizon can be bought in its new colors through the official site of the US-based carrier.
