Another member of Motorola’s Droid family is on the way, and it’s an LTE smartphone.
Verizon made an announcement for the Droid Bionic at CES, and while it was light on details, it offered more information than was previously known about any of this carrier’s next generation LTE phones.
Aside from the fact that the Droid Bionic will have Verizon 4G support, it will also feature a 4.3-inch, qHD display and, as is the case with the other Droid models from Motorola, it will run Google Android OS.
The device will be powered by a dual-core processor, with each core clocking in at 1 GHz for a total clockspeed of 2 GHz, though the specific type has yet to be confirmed. It isn’t a stretch, however, to speculate that it would be the Nvidia Tegra 2, considering the chip’s prevalence in many of the year’s upcoming smartphones.
The Droid Bionic will also come equipped with 512 MB of RAM, front- and rear-facing cameras, HDMI out, and will be Flash- and HTML5-ready.
The Droid Bionic will be available in the second quarter of 2011, and while it is impossible to predict its performance, it is worth noting that Motorola and Verizon have seen plenty of success with their Android OS devices in the past, which include the Droid, Droid X, Droid 2 Global, and Droid Pro.
