The Motorola DROID Bionic is pictured in all of its sexy glory

The Motorola DROID Bionic is pictured in all of its sexy glory
Even though we recently reported about the September 8th launch date for the Motorola DROID Bionic, ever since Motorola sent the phone back to the plant to be re-designed, we never really had a firm idea of what the phone would look like. But DroidLife has obtained some pictures said to be that of the much awaited device and now we have a much clearer idea of what every Verizon customer with an upgrade in his pocket is waiting for.

The back consists of the soft touch material that you can find on the back of the Motorola DROID 3. The hump on the device that is near the top of the device on the DROID X and DROID X2 is more in the middle of the phone instead of being by the camera's housing. This could be for the 4G chip. Compared to the Samsung DROID Charge, the Motorola DROID Bionic is bigger with a squared-off design as opposed to the former's rounded corners. The difference in size could mean that the DROID Bionic will present with a 4.5 inch qHD display, and how glorious would that be?

Verizon's first dual-core LTE enabled device is just a tad more than a month away, and for those who just can't wait, just keep looking at the pictures. As we move closer to launch, we are sure that there will be some more photographs of the device that many thought would never get here.

pretty sick phone. dual not so pleased. i find some of dual core phones have lag issues like the atrix. maybe thats because its running 2.2 and it isn't made for dual cores. looks like a pretty solid phone

The Atrix has no lag issues, and thats because its running 2.3.4, not 2.2. gingerbread for Atrix has been out for more than 2 weeks now and it has an awesome new refreshed UI. The new htc sense looks more laggy than the current new motoblur.

holy yes! 4.5 in screen would be amazing! even though 4.3 is perfect as well!

It's not 4.5, I am pretty sure of that. Phones like the Droid X are extremely tall. The Samsung Infuse(4.5) is actually a little shorter than the Droid X despite it being 4.3.

rory, you gotta remember that Bezels around the screen are shrinking with every new generation. Its quite possible that they were able to put a bigger screen in there while keeping the phone the same size or maybe even reducing it slightly. if it does or not, i dunno, but its not out of the realm of possibility. does it look like it should be called the "Droid X3" to anyone else? lol

I know I have said this before but I can't stress this enough. Motorola has made some serious improvements over Motoblur, however if they are "doing away wiht it" then they really need to completely do away with it. Put stock android on your phones until you make a brand new UI that doesnt look or feel like motoblur. Let me put it this way. You have a phone like the LG G2x running with 2.3 and a dual core processor and its extremely snappy and fast. Then you got a phone like the Sensation/EVO 3D, despite having a faster dual core processor and more RAM it actually has some lag and feels a lot slower. The same is with Motoblur phones too, I really wish they would put more stock android phones on high end devices. If you want your widgets to be on your phones then just add them to it but leave it stock. I honestly think it's mostly the UI's fault for lag and other issues. Samsung seems to have finally figured that out and made their UI on their galaxy s2 phones extremely snappy and smooth. I really hope in the near future the others follow in those steps.

Rory, why can't I stress THIS enough? New Blur usually IS really smooth, even on my X. And it's EXTREMELY smooth even with live wallpaper on my Atrix. And most reports on the Photon say the same. The RAM seems to make a difference. Besides, I kind of find stock Android boring. I like the widgets and general UI that Motoblur and Sense offer. (And btw, Sense on the Sensation is awesomely smooth.)

yeah, RAM is the only factor counting against the Droid 3. when i keep background processes running at a minimum it stays perfectly smooth and snappy and it seems the Droid 3 runs an even more extensive revision of the Application's Platform so that's another factor but it does look really nice compared to what's on Motorola's other offerings.

i hope Google listens to us and makes the manufacturers keep ICS stock on their devices and just allow them to make their customizations available to download elsewhere.

I can't speak for the Sensation, but there is nothing slow or laggy about the EVO 3D. And even though Sense 3.0 is large, the 3D is the smoothest Android phone I've used, and I've had quite a few. It certainly doesn't feel slower than the G2x. I've had both.

it could be 4.5" i suppose which i think would be a welcome bump. i'm not sure i like the hump starting from the middle, it seems kind of awkward but i can't really be sure until you guys review it and i see one myself. after my couple of weeks of using the Droid 3 and being that this is shaping up to be the bigger counterpart with more RAM and LTE i think it's safe to say this will be a great phone when it comes out. my only concern is battery life.

No thanks- MOTO can take this crappy phone and shove back up their *BLEEP* i'll wait on the gs2 or nexus prime. Even the htc vigor will be better than this POS. I'm sorry for you loser who are content with a POS like this.The phone look ugly as hell, hardware that's already beaten in every way possible, and is stuffed with MotoBLUR which make an already ugly phone even UGLIER. So moto and all of you idiots who thinks otherwise, well that just shows how stupid you people really are. I don't care how smooth some of you idiots think that atrix or x is, it will never be as smooth as the gs2.

gs2 sucks. bionic x and atrix are all better. I don't like ugly cartoonish touchwiz. I would rather have mechanical motoblur.

I wouldn't say the GS 2 sucks, but I think Motoblur is very underrated. It's a bit of a resource hog, but it's a great, functional overlay to the Android system. The color scheme is nice too, and the amount of customization works well.

At this point in time...under rated is a good description. Like you said it was nice on the GB update for the DX1. So nice I didnt change the launcher. That says alot. If its better than that...and I keep hearing it is....I will be very pleased if/when I get the Bionic.

True every single word, The Atrix is sooooo much faster and smoother. I dont like touchwiz more than blur, but te G2S is not bad.

I have to say both have their pros and cons, I currently have two low end from both on my hands and even when the Ace moves around the UI much smoother that the defy yet the defy showed a much more pleasant gaming experiene Plus they default keyboard OK the defy is much better

Random note: The samsung droid Charged and Infuse 4G could have been sexi ass phones if they were dual core. Thank whoever who made the SGSII for saving samsung. :D cant wait for the Bionic vs SGSII Vids.

My guess is that it's not the Bionic, but the next one they are working on.....

nope, definitely Bionic here.

i have a new theory. the Droid 3 seems to run a more updated interface than it's other high-end brethren and i think it's because since the Droid 3 doesn't have Webtop capabilities that the phone was deemed ready for the newer interface but phones like the Photon and the Atrix don't have it because Moto is working on some major improvements to Webtop and they want it to be ready to roll out to those phones along with the updated interface.

motorola Dinara, they just put the Targa Sticker on there to throw people off. The hump is too long on the back, and isn't the flash used on current Moto 8mp cameras different?
