Leaked images of the Motorola DROID BIONIC show a subtle redesign and more
There is no arguing that Verizon customers are surely getting their fill of LTE right now, especially after seeing three consecutive Android enabled 4G LTE devices, but we’re sure there are some who are still curious about Motorola’s offering. The Motorola DROID BIONIC is undoubtedly running on a different course than what was initially expected, but now the latest set of leaked images show off a subtle redesign and more.

Meticulously looking at the handset, one can see that it’s sporting a new redesigned chassis that’s modified versus the one we all first spotted back at CES. Additionally, we now see it flaunting a sizable 8-megapixel auto-focus camera that’s coming along with full 1080p video recording. Not stopping there, the leak even shows us the presence of the new version of MOTOBLUR and a new dock connector as well, which allows it to dock with Motorola’s laptop dock.

Obviously, it’s definitely nice seeing the Motorola DROID BIONIC still in the loop after all this time, but we’re eager to know when it’ll actually come to fruition. Then again, maybe we might have to wait a little bit to give Big Red’s other recently launched 4G LTE devices some time to soak in the sun.

well there it is. it doesn't look quite ready enough for prime time yet and surprisingly this is not the "Targa" o:

LTE is GSM technology.

Not quite. It is.. but it isnt. It is a GSM "upgrade" technology but it does not use GSM tech. If it were a true GSM technology, VZW wouldnt be able to be using it as it wouldnt be compatable with their network.

i'm aware of that remixfa, get off my jock man.Verizon still uses CDMA for it 3G network but 4G LTE is still GSM, that's all i'm saying.

Verizon is Using CDMA for Voice, later on VoLTE(Voice over LTE) for Voice, making Verizon a GSM/CDMA operator but not right now (until the LG Revo. is released). Also EVDO rev A (CDMA) for 3G Data but LTE(GSM) for 4G Data. There stop b_tching :)

well the LG Revolution is already out and i was just at a store the other day and i asked if it did actually launch with VoLTE and they said it's not present on any of the 4G phones at this time.

They are still working out the hand off kinks between LTE and CDMA.. Its not going so well from what I understand, so It might be a ways off.

And trust me, i have no interest in underdeveloped jock. :)

actually you are wrong here in Minnesota they run both a gsm and a cdma network. the GSM is left over from the Alltel merger and covers most of the rural part of the state. they can operate both no problem. Now that does not mean that my cdma phone will roam onto the GSM svc because you are correct they are not compatible just like am and fm

Can't wait to get this one whenever and however it is finally released. My original Droid has just about had it!

Huh. So the Targa is still on the table. FAYI, Motorola has repeatedly announced that the BIONIC is still on track for a summer release, so this could happen as early as next month.

Wait a minute...is it just me, or does the bottom of the "BIONIC" in this picture look like the phone has two parts/is a slider? I think this is just the Droid 3.

i was thinking the same thing. if it's just a cutout lip at the bottom that really makes no sense lol

i really doubt that. it probably just has some chin action going on. the Droid 3 won't have LTE.

That is very possible otherwise it could be just a lip at the bottom like the HTC Thunderbolt has.

its just the bottom bezel for the screen. why they didnt just make the whole face a screen, i dunno.. maybe so it doesnt look like a large galaxyS phone?

posted on 06 Jun 2011, 12:07

23. Thump3rDX17 (Posts: 2160; Member since: 10 May 2010)


um, why wouldn't they have an aesthetically differentiating feature on the phone? the screen is still 4.3" the rest of the face is only a matter of taste.

yep definitely not the targa it was assumed to be. 8mp on the rear vs. the 13mp first rumored however, that doesn't even matter since the lens tech isn't fully up to par to take advantage of the extra mp yet. Looking forward to owning this as soon as it comes out.

I think this phone is going to have 4 inches instead of 4.3 inches. >=(

Why Verizon? Why? Because you want the people who like big screens to buy the Droid X2? Verizon, I don't like the Droid X2 because It don't have front facing camera and also it don't have at least 768MB RAM. I prefer something better.

nooooo, pretty sure this is still 4.3". the Droid 3 is 4.0".

How? The capacitive buttons gets bigger?

the whole phone is different. they've probably just been moved down to lower positions than they were on the Etna.

No, if it has a 4 inch screen it's because 4 inches is a great balance between great screen size and usability by those who don't have monster hands.

I see, that's good especially for girls, but not for people who like big screens.
