MotoDev Site Outs Official DROID Bionic Specs: OMAP4, RAM and Screen Size All Confirmed?

We started hearing murmurs of the DROID Bionic popping up over at the MotoDev site yesterday as its former self, but ran into a bunch of “Access Denied” pages while snooping.  Thankfully, the folks at MDW were able to give us a gateway into the site, so that we could see for ourselves and then share with all of you.

Before we start talking about what we are seeing, we’ll quickly shoot down the comments that are surely going to arise regarding the model number.  Yes, we realize that the model number that is showing up says XT865 which is the old Bionic.  Once you see the specs though, you’ll quickly realize that the model number is wrong and that you should ignore it.

Update:  Since we’ve seen enough emails about it, we thought we’d address it even further.  Yes, we realize that the old model number of XT865 is listed.  We totally get that.  What you have to realize though, is the specs that are listed, are for the NEW Bionic.  The old version was a Tegra 2 with just 512MB of RAM.  The new build of XT875 is an OMAP with 1GB of RAM.  The Moto folks just haven’t flipped the switch on the new model number yet, but have on the specs.

Update 2:  It looks like Moto pulled the specs, which is not surprising.  And now you know why our “click here” link is an image taken from the site that will be available forever.

So, what do we have?

  • 1GHz OMAP4430 dual-core processor
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4.3″ qHD screen
  • 8MP rear camera (shoots 1080p video)
  • VGA front camera (told you that 2MP was a bad rumor)
  • HDMI 1.4
  • Android 2.3.4
  • Webtop capabilities
  • 4G LTE

No real big surprises, assuming these stand at release.  Still a beast though.

Cheers Craig and Clint!

    Did you Here that Verizon is about to release:  Samsung Stratosphere!  It seems like a fitting name for the Samsung Galaxy S 2.  Samsung had sent a Samsung Galaxy S2 box to some techie’s, publishers and bloggers but when these guys opened the box expecting to see a preview of the U.S. version of the Galaxy S II what was in it was a small – mini telescope  and a note in the box stating:  “Keep watch for the next generation Galaxy S.”     ——-  If you think about it a telescope is used to see beyond the “stratosphere” To see the box and the card that was in it sent by Samsung go to for more pictures of the un-boxing by a publisher at a tech site :  http://www.slashgear.com/samsung-galaxy-s-ii-telescope-teaser-sent-to-publishers-27167835/

    Not much different than the D3…I’d actually take the D3 over this. 

    And if I were going to get a new phones it’d be the GS2.
