@evleaks is at it again. This time he has leaked an image of the upcoming Motorola Droid MAXX. The phone appears to be constructed out of carbon fiber and aluminum, just like previous "Droid" models, and will be an exclusive to the Verizon lineup later this fall.

It is widely expected that the device will focus on battery life, which Motorola will undoubtedly toute far and wide as it did with the Droid Razr M and Razr HD. While no hardware specifications have been released yet, we expect the device to closely lineup with the Moto X which was announced last week. This makes sense because Verizon's Droid phones are usually a few months behind in tech specs over other flagship devices.

The new phone is expected to arrive on Verizon shelves late this year, but a retail price, availability, and any information on accessories has not been released yet. If previous devices are an indication, we can expect it to retail in the $400-600 range off contract, with 2 year agreements coming in around the $199 range.
