As the impending launch of the Verizon-bound Motorola Droid MAXX 2 smartphone draws nearer, the veil of mystery surrounding the handset seems to be lifting thanks to innumerable leaks.

Motorola is slipping up pretty frequently it seems as close on the heels of the Google Play Store faux pas, which we reported recently, the company has now gone ahead and posted detailed images from what seems to be the device's manual.

The picture was first spotted by reliable leakster Evan Bass who goes by the Twitter handle @evleaks.

The picture gives a glimpse into a new feature for the upcoming device - a removable backplate. The help files showed the process of removing the backplate and it is presumed, that one will be able to gain access to the SIM card slot after its removal. However, the image hints that the battery will still be non-removable.

The picture has now been removed by Motorola and visiting the link shows "404" error that the page is not in existence.

If the Droid MAXX 2 will indeed have a removable back panel then users will be able to change the shells to suit their taste.

This is not the first time the Motorola smartphone has been in the news. Earlier in August, we reported that images of the back cover intended for the Verizon-branded Droid MAXX 2 had leaked online.

The leaked rear covers were in lime and white and sported both the Droid branding, as well as the Verizon logo.

Rumors suggest that the Droid MAXX 2 will have a 5.5-inch full HD screen with a 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (401ppi) resolution. The smartphone is anticipated to pack-in a quad-core Snapdragon 615 processor, which is clocked at 1.7GHz. The device will also house 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of on-board storage (expandable to 128 GB through a microSD card).

Come Oct. 27, Motorola is expected to take the wraps off the Droid MAXX 2, we will soon know if the Moto X Play smartphone in a new avatar will live up to consumers' expectations.
