Boy, Motorola can't catch a break. Hot on the heels of a leak showcasing several new products last week and the appearance of some DROID 3 training videos yesterday, purported images of a redesigned DROID Bionic in the wild have made their way online. The device in question features both a front and back that are different from the Bionic that debuted back in January, looking a bit more like the Targa sans the camera hump. As you can see in the photos, this new Bionic features an 8-megapixel camera with a flash and 1080p video capture and a revised version of MotoBlur similar to the one recently spotted on the DROID 3. Check out two more photos of the handset, including one of it docked with a Moto lapdock, below.

Although Motorola has said that the new Bionic will be landing this summer with several enhancements and "an improved form factor," it never really expanded on exactly what changes were in store for the device. This new look is a tad more generic and black slab-ish than the Bionic's original two-tone look, but I'm kind of digging it so far. What do you all think of the redesigned DROID Bionic?

UPDATE: More photos of the DROID Bionic have emerged over at the PhoneHK forum, along with some possible specs for the revamped device. According to the source of the photos, the new Bionic will pack a 4.5-inch 540x960 qHD display and Android 2.3.4 running beneath the same version of MotoBlur found on the DROID 3, which features a new lock screen as well as redone animations. Check out the Bionic sitting pretty next to an Atrix below, followed by an image showing the new Blur's home screen preview.
