Motorola’s normally reserves the “Maxx” tag for phones with huge batteries and extensive battery lives. For instance, the latest “Maxx” phone, the DROID MAXX, has a 3,500 mAh battery that can, according to Motorola, last for up to 48 hours on one charge.

The existence of such a phone brings up a number of possibilities.

First, the Moto Maxx could be a “Maxx” version of the Moto X+1, or it could be the rumored Moto X+1 itself, if timing of the trademark and the rumored Moto X+1 release date are anything to go by. In this scenario, the Moto Maxx could possibly be the the first “Maxx” phone that is eligible for the Motomaker customizable treatment.

Of course, the Moto Maxx could also be the next phone in the DROID line, and Motorola are simply securing the trademark for the name early.
