Could This Be The Newly-Reborn Motorola Bionic? (Images)
An unknown Motorola Android showed up in a blurrycam photo yesterday, leaving us scratching our heads about what forthcoming model the phone might be. Today a host of new images has arrived, looking to be the very same model, along with fresh speculation that the smartphone might be the revamped Droid Bionic.
After plenty of rumors that Motorola and Verizon were delaying the Bionic’s release, the manufacturer finally confirmed those plans, revealing that, “based on compelling feedback… we are incorporating several enhancements to make this an even better consumer experience. This includes expanded features, functionality and an improved form factor.”
Right now, there’s no direct evidence tying this fresh batch of pics to the Bionic, but it certainly seems like a possibility. This phone has a webtop dock like the Atrix for connectivity to Motorola’s laptop accessory; that would tend to fit in under the category of “enhancements” like the company discussed. There’s an eight-megapixel camera that, along with the expected 1GHz dual-core processor, will enable the phone to record 1080p full-HD video, just as the original Bionic specs had the handset pulling off.
Now that things are crisp and clear, we can see the Motorola running Gingerbread, along with a new version of Blur. There’s a chance we could be looking at two models here, since the blurry pic we saw over the weekend doesn’t appear to have the Verizon branding on it these new ones do. Then again, considering the quality of that image, maybe we just couldn’t see it.
