Motorola DROID Bionic specs

Over the past month or two, we've watched the Motorola DROID Bionic go from being one of the most mysterious smartphones in recent memory to one of the most oft-leaked smartphones in recent memory. Today that trend continues, as some more specs for the Bionic have emerged. There's been some confusion surrounding Verizon's upcoming 4G LTE handset, so hopefully this can clear all that up. According to the leaked images, the Bionic will include:

  • 4.3-inch 540x960 qHD display (meaning there's no 4.5-inch screen here)
  • 1GHz dual-core processor
  • 8-megapixel camera with 1080p video capture
  • Front-facing camera that'll likely be of the VGA persuasion
  • 16GB internal memory
  • 16GB microSD card preinstalled
  • 1GB RAM
  • Webtop apps similar to what's found on the Atrix
  • MotoPrint support for wireless printing
  • 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot support for up to eight devices

Unfortunately, what this leak doesn't contain are details on launch and pricing, meaning that I wouldn't go taking September 8th off of work just yet. Do any of you plan on picking up the Bionic when it finally hits Verizon's shelves? Or do you now have your heart set on the HTC Vigor or Moto DROID HD?

UPDATE: The DROID Bionic leaks don't end there! The folks at Android Central just posted the image you see immediately below, showing that the Bionic could carry a full retail price of $587 when it launches. Speaking of launching, the site's source claims that August 26th could be the day that the Bionic finally drops. That date's a tad earlier than the September launch that we got from both Moto CEO Sanjay Jha and a leaked Verizon roadmap, but hey, it's possible that Moto and Big Red decided that they wanted to speed things along a bit. It's also worth mentioning that Verizon normally launches new devices on Thursdays, but the 26th is a Friday. Whether or not the 26th is indeed the possible date or if it's simply a typo and should read August 25th remains to be seen, but we'll let you know more when we do.

Jules A. Sinclair
Jules A. Sinclair lol all droids are old news if a new one comes out every month... hahaha
Anthony Tyson
Anthony Tyson yes
Jason King
Jason King Yes it is .... These phone manufactures need to learn how to launch a phone. You don't showcase a new phone your never going to put out. Personally i liked the original Bionic . What in heavens name made them scrap the original device and start all over from scratch i do not know but you better bet that this new Bionic was rushed and we all know how rushed devices turn out. Jacked Up ... Sorry Motorola you messed up. SN: How can you really make a big deal over ONE device releasing when a new android phone comes out almost every 2 to 3 weeks. It seems Apple is the only company able to launch a device and create a Major buzz. Also for the record I've never seen anyone lined up for an other device but the iPhone..
Zach Cline
Zach Cline People are idiots. But the bionic does look sick, Honestly HTC has the best UI out there in my opinion,Sense is better than suckwiz and motoblur. If i stay with android i'll most likely get an HTC of some sort.
Equaknox Knox
Equaknox Knox WTF....I hated the droids when they first came..with no front facing camera..n still today..they lack all the coolaid..and flavor..always second to the table behing Evo n Iphone..o well..i guess they dont wanna eat...shit..its a full course meal on the table..when it comes to the cell phone game...they need ta get there asses to the table..before all the food gone...heheheheheh.....lmao...
Nathan Bryant
Nathan Bryant Very old news. It's just the Atrix for Verizon. Like the Photon for Sprint. If you make a phone for all carriers you need to do it in a timely manner.
Michael Diaz
Michael Diaz Yes. Whats that?
Amber Pike Stafford
Amber Pike Stafford yes.
Kryptik Slawter
Kryptik Slawter Bionics are so six months ago.
Muneer KhanVict
Muneer KhanVict Not interested in this fone at all. By the time its released there will probably be quad-core kal-el devices on the way..
John Fisher
John Fisher Motorola is really dumb. This phone will be just as laggy and buggy as the Droid X2...and six months late to the show.
Flako Ramirez
Flako Ramirez Yup
Skye Villanueva
Skye Villanueva I still thinks its an OK device! And its sick looking so why not I say...just root and through some stock 2.3 on it
Christopher Manic Johnson
Christopher Manic Johnson The Bionic is now the Droid X2 in my book. The entire Droid line is now meh, Motorola & Verizon seriously screwed the pooch when it came to marketing the line as of late. Htc is irrelevant because they only had the Incredible, & Samsung is more synonymous for the Galaxy S line than the Droid Charge
Mike Jackson
Mike Jackson Sorry I got the wrong phone
Mike Jackson
Mike Jackson Its ugly!
David McClain
David McClain Only if the reviews are bad, if they are great all will be forgiven. I am still between the Bionic, Galaxy II and the Vigor.
Jaime Andrade
Jaime Andrade Droid charge is the shhhhsnnet
Ed Plnia
Ed Plnia That Droid bionic got me sick already.
Oscar Zavala
Oscar Zavala Yes and no! But Idk if I should get this phone or the htc vigor? Wat do u think I should get aaron?
Jon Jerico Calanio
Jon Jerico Calanio Not yet. It will still hold the prestige of being the first dual-core 4G LTE phone, but it can be easily eclipsed by a 4G version of the upcoming Galaxy S II.
Jesse James Castro
Jesse James Castro That new HTC phone with the 1.5ghz dual core and 2 mp front camera is going to have better specs than the bionic
Nathaniel Hull
Nathaniel Hull I luv mispelin shit so da grammar people can complain lmao :o
Peterjon Smith
Peterjon Smith That thing is a tech unicorn
Nathaniel Hull
Nathaniel Hull Gettn there
Lee Phillips
Lee Phillips with 1.2+ghz phones coming around the same time as the bionic, I'd say it was old news the day the galaxy s2 was released in Europe, LTE or not. With so many moto phones released lately and this one being delayed so many times for so long, no one SHOULD care about this one at all. I'm tired of all the motorola android phones every three months basically being a repackaged version of the last.
Dwayne Demaurivert
Dwayne Demaurivert Yes bionic lost out cause the photon 4g ruby is gonna destroy
Christian Anthony Diaz
Christian Anthony Diaz now that Google bought Motorola I think maybe its gonna get a hella of a lot better!
Steve Moore
Steve Moore Screw Verizon! They always seem to make their products irrelevant. They're taking a page out of Apple's book, products come out with old hardware by launch.
Kelvin Reid
Kelvin Reid # the
Kelvin Reid
Kelvin Reid Will the Bionic be a global phone like three Photon 4g???????????
Jerimiah Reece
Jerimiah Reece I guess I'm glad I bought my Droid X2. Otherwise I'd still have my BlackBerry Tour. Motorola needs to get their crap together. Maybe Google will make some changes now that they own Motorola's mobile division.
John Miller
John Miller it was old news 3 months ago it should be priced as a feature phone now
Diaz Jonathan
Diaz Jonathan yea i agree..not a moto fan and it is def OLD news..just like the galaxy s 2 which was released 6 months ago and its still not in the states!!!!!1
Eko Budi Prasetio
Eko Budi Prasetio Iam not motorola fans...
Danny Damore
Danny Damore DEF not new!
Dawn Stanley
Dawn Stanley Phones are as unique as the individuals who own them. There's room for all competitors, don't you think? Just sucks that money's tight. We all love new toys.
Bryon Carlin
Bryon Carlin No
Zack Hébert
Zack Hébert it's garbage once the Ruby comes out
Jesus Ruiz
Jesus Ruiz They really need to stop with the Droid Bionic. If they are going to release it, release it. If they arent, then stop teasing us. Its really getting on my nerves.
David McClellan
David McClellan What's old news is asking if it is old news.... seen this article 3 times since announcement... really is getting old....
Luis Valentin-Zeno
Luis Valentin-Zeno The what? Just like the Pre 3 ... So much hype at the beginning of the year only to be pushed back so much... Now with newer phones being leaked and announced their being pushed down the barrel
David R. Mitchell II
David R. Mitchell II Someone needs to figure a way to release android 2.2 or 2.3 for tmobile garminfone
BigChuck Rossetti
BigChuck Rossetti Yeah... that Bionic was "the one"... I was gonna be there the day it came out... but I bet the battery life is gonna suck and it's gonna be buggy as hell... think i'm gonna wait now and let the 4G radios get smoothed out before I jump into anything... or at least wait till I hear what. People have to say about it with everyday use.
Jan Michael Cruz
Jan Michael Cruz well new androids are old news in a week or so anyways
Joe Aranzullo
Joe Aranzullo 4g, dual core, moto android slider please.. webtop capable a plus! i need a new work phone!
Devon Bain
Devon Bain Old news for quite some time. Motorola screwed the pooch on this one. Six months ago it was hot stuff and had tremendous buzz. Now, with quads perhaps 8-10months out, the prospect of a two-year agreement for a phone that was supposed to be out in February is asking a whole lot of high-end android users to bend over and take it in the back of a Volkswagen in a year's time.
Robert L Dalton
Robert L Dalton Yes
Joe Aranzullo
Joe Aranzullo it sure is.. its been 'leaked' so many times and 'delayed' so many times.. i feel like its been out for months already and nobody cares any more.
Amanda Mekoleske
Amanda Mekoleske Hey answer me this what is the best tablet out there for a college student ?
Davidson Delice
Davidson Delice Yes!
Chris Bridges
Chris Bridges Yes. Old news
Kristie Robinson
Kristie Robinson No it's still the #1 on my list. Unless something better comes out by the time I get to upgrade in January... which is likely lol.
Felipe Bautista
Felipe Bautista Yeah.
Prince Foto Young
Prince Foto Young Yes
