Rumour has it that Motorola is planning a new and improved version of their Motorola DROID BIONIC. Motorola BIONIC very quickly became the most widely talked about handset from its introduction back in 2011. The phone got a huge welcoming too. But after a period of time, the spot light was over shadowed by later additions from Motorola like the Motorola DROID RAZR.
Now about a year after the first BIONIC was launched the speculation is that Motorola is working on a sequel to the same. The news about the new phone came in insurance company’s website. All devices including smartphones get insured as you may know. In the enrolment page for insuring under the Motorola section there is a mention about a phone termed as Motorola DROID BIONIC 2. But the odds against such a device are very high.
First of all list of all the mobile phone variants are normally mentioned separately i.e. different coloured phones of the same model are listed by different names. Considering this scenario and the fact that Motorola DROID has a variant without a 16 GB microSD memory card pre installed in it, it is possible that this variant might be the one that is listed as Motorola DROID 2. So even when there are specs and details about the new phone popping up in different sites and blogs, one must take those details with a pinch of salt.
Motorola DROID BIONIC came with a 4.3 inch screen packing with a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. The screen is of TFT capacitive touch screen type and has pixel density of 256 pixels per inch. The phone has 2GB of ROM, 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of onboard storage. An external memory card slot is provided that supports microSD type memory cards of up to 32 GB size.
The phone came with dual shooters including an 8 mega pixels main shooter and a VGA front facing camera. The operating system in it is android version 2.3.4 Gingerbread. The phone runs on a dual core Cortex-A9 processor that is clocked at 1 GHz. PowerVR SGX540 GPU is also provided to handle graphics.
But if a sequel is launched anyways then it will be welcomed as a worthy addition to Motorola DROID line up. So let’s keep our fingers crossed and expect Motorola to do the same, even if it takes some time to get the final output, it is worth the wait.
