Earlier today, we got a look at a series of images of an unknown Motorola Android, which arrived with speculation that it might be the new-and-improved Droid Bionic, after its release was initially put on-hold to re-tool the phone’s design and its hardware capabilities. Now some new images of the phone have come to our attention, clearly identifying it as the Bionic.
In late May, we saw some NenaMark results for a phone claiming to be the Bionic, running Android 2.3.3. In the short time that’s passed since then, it looks like progress has been made on the smartphone, as we can now see it running 2.3.4 via its About screen. The big 4.5-inch qHD screen looks great here, placed next to the
Atrix Defy, which looks like an HP Veer in comparison. Could it be too big, though, for casual use?
We also get to see a little more of the Bionic’s new Moto Blur, with a 3D look to check out all the pages on your home screen, and a new, spartan lock screen. Channeling its Droid roots, we also see the phone show off the big, red Droid eye. Motorola hasn’t publicized a release date for the updated Bionic, but what we’re seeing here looks quite polished; it may not be long, now.
