New Motorola Droid Bionic Appears at the FCC

Posted by at 6:10 am on July 4, 2011

Verizon subscribers should be happy with  the new Droid Bionic edged closer to release. The revamped hardware has appeared in an FCC filing. While it wasn’t identified by name, Droid-Life picked up that the Motorola phone was running on both CDMA and LTE, leaving little doubt that it was the heavily reworked phone.

The current Droid Bionic is very different than the one we saw at CES in January. While they both share a 540×960 screen, the shipping version will use a TI OMAP dual-core processor instead of the NVIDIA Tegra 2. It should be considerably slimmer and more polished even as it might expand to a larger 4.5-inch display. Camera gear may vary, since it has been seen with anything from an eight-megapixel sensor to a 14-megapixel version.

Based on earlier estimates for the Droid 3 mostly coming true, the new Bionic could arrive on Verizon in late july, over half a year after it first appeared.

Motorola is known to have pushed back the Bionic to the summer after it was unhappy with its early 2011 appearance. Delays in LTE hardware are known to be the primary factors in the delays, although Motorola has denied that a conflict between its LTE chip and NVIDIA’s Tegra 2 processor have been at fault.
