Will the Motorola DROID Bionic have an OMAP processor under the hood rather than Tegra 2?
Recently we told you about about some specs for the Motorola DROID 3 gleaned from the NenaMark benchmark web site. On Saturday, the same site had some specs for the Motorola DROID Bionic. Regardless if this model is the Motorola Targa instead of the Etna, the DROID Bionic will have the PowerVR SGX 540 GPU on board, similar to the DROID 3. And that GPU seems to come only with a Texas Instruments OMAP 4 processor. If you are keeping a scorecard, you can scratch out the Tegra 2 and replace it with a dual-core 1GHz TI OMAP 4.

Also, according to the NenaMark site, the Motorola DROID Bionic will ship with Android 2.3.3 installed, which is an improvement from Froyo, but also means no Google Talk out of the box. While all reports say the device will come with a 4.3 inch screen, according to the benchmark site, the resolution will be qHD.

If there is one troubling aspect to NenaMark's benchmarking of the DROID Bionic, it is that it scored 24 on a benchmark test compared to a 45.70 score for the Motorola DROID 3. But it is still very early days for the former. Motorola has not officially confirmed that the DROID Bionic will be the Targa and there still is a lot of tweaking and fine tuning to do before the phone even gets introduced.
