Verizon had originally planned to introduce the Motorola Droid Bionic this spring, but the release was bumped back to give Motorola time to re-design the device. A flier for it that has leaked out of the retailer Best Buy shows what this cutting-edge Android smartphone is going to look like.
This model was originally unveiled at CES in January, about the same time Verizon was putting the finishing touches on a number of other handsets with features similar to the Droid Bionic, like the HTC ThunderBolt, Samsung Droid Charge, and Motorola Droid X2. In April, Verizon announced that the Droid Bionic was being delayed to make some improvements.
No official word on what’s being changed has emerged yet, but a leak from Best Buy supposedly shows the new design. This is distinctly squarer than the original design for this model.
The sales flier promises that users of the Droid Bionic will, in addition to enjoying “the ferocious force of Verizon 4G LTE”:
- Experience a superfast dual-core processor
- Takeover your TV with HDMI mirror mode
- Pull files from your computer wirelessly
- Video chat with dual cameras
More Motorola Droid Bionic Details
This smartphone will include a 4.3-inch screen with a qHD (960 x 540) touchscreen. Only a few other models with this screen size and resolution have been released. It is also going to be one of the first with a NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip with two 1GHz cores.
It will almost certainly debut running Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread), the latest version of Google’s operating system for phones. It was originally going to include 512 MB of RAM, but this could have changed during the re-design process.
Not all the specifications of the Droid Bionic have be revealed yet, and all that’s known about the release date is that it’s going to be on the market by the end of September.
