New DROID Bionic Pics Surface, Full Look at that Sexy New Back (Updated: Front Shot Added)

Up until today, we had only seen a render of the backside of the DROID Bionic, after Amazon posted up a whole batch of accessories for it.  Thanks to one of our fantastic readers though, we now have real pictures of what you can expect come early September when this device makes its way into Verizon stores.

From these pics, we aren’t finding out a whole bunch of new stuff other than the look.  It appears to be similar soft-coated material to that used on the DROID3, which we are definitely fans of.  We’re also getting a really good look at that hump that has for the most part avoided us.  It appears to start much more in the middle of the device than say the DROIDX or X2, but that’s likely for it to house that 4G LTE chip.

This also gives us a pretty good size comparison of it to the DROID Charge.  At first glance our jaws dropped because it looked like it was substantially bigger than Samsung’s LTE device, but then realized it was just the angle of the photo.  Pretty sure it’ll be 4.3″, my friends.

I know that many of you are fed up with having to wait so long for it to arrive and after seeing specs, but I’m really diggin’ this new look.  Your thoughts?  

Update:  And we have a front pic to add to the bunch.  It’s definitely blurry, but that’s how this game works some times.  Could it be 4.5″?  Puppy looks huge next to the Charge…

Update 2:  DL reader @billnewl put in some work on this comparisons to see if the screen on the Bionic really is bigger and possibly 4.5″.  You guys tell me…

Update 3:  We have added a second gallery over at this post.

Cheers ___!

    just switched to smartphone and got the bionic on 9/9.  as of yesterdsay afternoon, the phone doesn’t work green light blinks at top but other then that, is unresponsive…had struggled with phone prior to full-on failure since contacts were all duped…is smartphone really smart…not feeling it so much and now without a phone altogether…grrr

    • Youllreachus

      take it back and wait for whatever Samsung galaxy variant comes to vzw.  I got some hands on time with sprints epic touch 4g and it absolutely blows the biopic out of the water in screen, smoothness, camera, video, and benchmark scores.  The latest rumors have the Prime coming in about a month and a half.  If you can’t wait that long the htc vigor should release a couple of weeks earlier and should be a significant upgrade from the bionic as well.

  • i guess people are’t to brite nowaday’s, first off the droid charge’s screen size is 4.27 inch’s, while the Droid Bionic has a “real” 4.3 inch screen @ a 16:9 aspect ratio, so the screen will naturally be taller. in the photo up there the pic’s look all stretched & twisted, it’s been officially speced as a 4.3 inch qHD screen…same as photon & droid 3. take a look at the photo of the 2 phone & measure the screen of the bionic on your monitor & then do the same for the droid charge you’ll see they’re about the same. this is BS to get people to jump into lazy poster’s that already know it’s not 5 “

  • Here’s my deal on the SGSII lemmings. You preach about how if that thing ever makes it to VZW it better have 4g, granted a vast majority still doesn’t have full coverage in their area. But there is no way that a 4g radio will be placed in that phone without compromising the size. Plus the one thing I have to say is… isn’t the Droid Bionic sporting the only chip on the earth CERTIFIED by Netflix for HD streaming… imo that’s a big plus when a lot of people including myself are gonna want to use this thing on occasion to watch movies on my television in my room and has been debated as probably the best chip out there for mobile devices.

    is the bootloader unlocked? yes or no?

    I prefer the original Bionic look.. before they had to take it back to the drawing board or whatever to fix whatever they had to fix.

    My favorite “leaked” pictures of this phone were the first ones that were released. (WAYYY back months ago, it’s ugly now) http://cdn.androidcommunity.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/motorola-droid-bionic-1294332936-316.jpg

  • Mikey G

    Those measurements are off, unless both screens are over 6″. A little pythagorean theorem goes a long way.

  • OG Droid

    This might be a dumb question; but it the “hump” at the bottom of the phone? It looks like it is cause of the volume switch on the side.

  • Anonymous

    It isn’t 4.5″. The Bionic’s screen just has a different aspect ratio.

    It is big. Only thing that I am unsure about is the Power / Lock button on top of the phone is on the left side, I am used to it being on the right side like on my OG droid. Probably not a big deal I am sure I will get used to it.

      • Anonymous

        No different than when any other new phone launches.  I still think this is a beast of a phone and despite Moto’s short falls from release dates, bootloaders, blur, etc, they still make very high quality products.  I dislike HTC’s and Samsung’s Skins they put on their phones as well, and I’ve seen too many HTC phones with screens that have shattered from not too far of drops.  I can’t tell you how many times I dropped my OG Droid, face down on concrete and the only thing that happened was the bezel got scratched up.  Like Kellex said, new stuff always comes out, you can’t avoid it.  But, make the best decision at the time and generally you should be happy.

    No, it’s not how it works sometimes, it’s called “Amateur cam users who don’t know how to use macro mode on their cameras,  either mobile or handheld”.

    Anything not needed to be seen to prevent identification can be edited out, so that excuse is mute for blurriness, anyone who needs to use that excuse should get out of image submission all together.

    anyone want an invite to Google+ cause of this?

  • Sheabyrd1

    Anybody wanna venture a guess on the pricing of this thing? I don’t remeber (maybe here) but I thought I saw a possible 299.99 WITH 2yr agreement. Would this be a deal breaker for some of you? I hope I am wrong and a 199.99 w/ 2yr is what the prcing will be. Or can somebody school me as to where i can find the price? Thanks.

    • kq

      seeing how it has considerable hype and 4g, i would guess: 75% – 299.99, 20% – 249.99, 5% – 199.99

  • Tabe

    The hump is for the camera AND possibly the LTE radio, which aren’t exactly small at this point.

  • Tabe

    True. I think that a majority of the motoblur haters are basing it either off their own experience with the early blur or just what they’ve heard about it. The new motoblur is actually quite nice.

  • Tabe

    How do you know where the antenna is? And also, i think you mean LTE radio?

  • Mrhug3

    I would love for it to be 4.5″ but, could it be because of the aspect ratio that moto uses?

    • impact

      I was thinking this same thing.  I have looked at two of my friend’s phones.  One has the EVO 4G and one has the Droid X.  The Droid X screen is a little narrower and taller whereas the EVO is a little wider.  I don’t think these tweaked pics of the Charge screen compared to the Bionic are completely accurate and the Bionic doesn’t really look that much bigger.  I hope it is 4.5in but I’m thinking it is just a different aspect ratio :/

      • Mrhug3

        Either way, I will have it.

    Damn, I may have to ween myself off the physical keyboard to get this thing o’ beauty. Those who are complaining about the look can shut it. The OG Droid design is the way it should be (the Moto Droid design), period. It evokes a sense of durability and longevity. If you haven’t owned an OG Droid or aren’t appreciative of it’s design, then there is something very very wrong with you and your opinions on the matter are thus automatically rendered null and void. And if you want a cheap pretty phone, then get the icrap.

    • Anonymous

      I agree except the iphone is more expensive than any android and is more solid than most androids. I think you should go by maybe a samsung for cheapness feeling

      • DBK

        I’ve played with an icrap, and it is definitely nowhere near as solid as the Moto Droid phones.

          Clearly you didn’t understand my comment I was agreeing with you. I said the things that feel cheap are samsung and their plastic.

          • DBK

            Oh I see what you were saying. But I have to disagree with you there because the Droid Charge doesn’t feel to bad. A little lighter than it should, but still pretty solid regardless.

            Well yes I know but that is what everyone always complains about is how cheap it feels I played with my friends charge and had a fascinate and yes it was plastic but didnt feel cheap

            Now I can agree with you, lol. They need to stop with the plastic, but they are definitely improving.

      Jeez, the screen size is off by .2 inches and automatically the specs are void and outdated? Seriously?

      • kq

        well the bionic went through a couple of redesigns. the spec sheet stated xt865, the older model, with a 4.3. usually u update spec sheets fully rather than individual stats. if this is xt875 and if it actually has a 4.5 screen, not hard to imagine that the leaked spec sheet was an older revision with other specs not updated after redesign.

        • DBK

          Kellex already explained that the spec sheet had the older model number, but the specs were accurate (other than the screen of course).

     was taken with an icraple

  • Bionic is next phone for me…  then I wont feel bad ditching it in February/March/April for the next gen phones.. Unless for some reason we get a release date for the SGS II, and it is within a few weeks of the bionic.  ‘m sick of waiting so the horizon phones dont matter that much…  Wasted my time with the charge…  man that phone is slow coming from an OC DX.  

  • Mikedeamicis

    i was holding my breath for this thing since the first rumored specs dropped. but in all honestly those specs are now 10 months and a generation behind. reading ab out the new snapdragon 1.5 dual fore chips and hearing about the power management and the possible cooler running phones, i might as well hold my breath 30 more days and get the whatchamacallit htc is dropping to replace the thunderbolt in october. i mean, heat is a huge issue with these phones. i like games and some of the higher end 3d online games make the phone hot. it gets to a point when the screen is no longer able to detect my touch because it is warmer than my fingers. this is also an issue outside when the phone is in your pocket all nice and warm and your cold little fingers will not work on the touch screen. this is a die hard argument for physical keyboards also. the bioninc is still a sexy beast, but for the coin and commitment, it cannot be out of date when i buy it, and knowing something twice as good is less than a month away makes it out of date to me. and two 1.5ghz cores is well past twice as good as a dual core sharing 1ghz. i do not knoiw if the bionic will have the heat issuse my droid and droid 3 have, but the boys at htc are bragging about their reduction in heat and it sounds reasonable to me.

      That’s cell phone technology .. every phone will be outdated every 3 months and so forth. My contract is up and I’m gonna settle with this phone. As long as it has a gig of ram, big screen, and HD video I’m fine. Would love to wait for vigor but then when that happens something else will be on here to get us hyped up.

    • Anonymous

      With the lower power snapdragon maybe HTC will finally have comparable battery life to everyone else.  Btw, 1.5 GHz does not mean two times the performance, nowhere close in fact.  The OMAP4 is faster per clock than the dual core snapdragon, it’s faster at 1 GHz than the snapdragon is at 1.2 GHz so don’t expect much of an improvement with 300 MHz more.

    I did some more back-of-the-photoshop calculations…  It looks like it *might* be 3-5% bigger (4.5″ is only 4.6% larger than 4.3″); though my margin of error (drawing lines on blurry images) could easily be 3-5%…  The Bionic might just appear larger (taller), because their aspect ratios are different; the Charge is 800×480 (15:9); the Bionic is supposed to be qHD 960×540 (16:9).  Numbers FTW!

    It’s hard to see in those pics, but I can detect the silver/metal band around the glass from the front photo by the light reflection. The rest of the phone is glass and rubberized plastic which doesn’t glint. 

    I can see volume rocker on the front shot high and right like it should be.That mystery button is right where the micro-usb and hdmi port should be so I think it’s an optical illusion.

      i think it is an optilcal illusion now looking and looking at the front pics of the phone, damn everyone jumping on me for a resonable mistake its not my fault the picks blurry.

  • [email protected]

    My theory is that the hump is also for a larger battery, something in the neighborhood of 2100mAh. The only way around poor battery life right now. Damn thing would fit in the car dock and other equipment. Maybe it is too soon to throw in the towel on Motorola. Still gonna see what Sammy and HTC come up with before I settle on a phone for Two years. Also seems like GB is right around the corner for my Charge.

    • The hump is for the camera, like it was for the Droid X,  the design is also expandable thanks to this.  Meaning an extended battery won’t add too much bulk with a correctly designed battery cover.

      The screen does look massive,  I’ve held a Droid Charge and its pretty big, wide and tall.  But we’ll have to see with more leaks.  Almost seems like a controlled leak thanks to the blurryness

    anyone else notice the butto on the side what the hell is it? cant be camera button that would make the camera lense upside down cant be power button too low (if it were on the side) and the power button is on the top.

    • Dare you to reply

      It’s the volume rocker you dumb ____.

      • T1369

        i got a og droid and our camera is at the top of the phone so the way the bottom rocker is positioned that would make the camera at the bottom of the phone? the droid x camera is also at the top of the phone along with the volume rocker so if that is the volume rocker why the hell did moto make the hump at the bottom of the phone? am i missing something?

        • Anonymous

          i was thinking the same thing. why would the volume rocker be at the bottom? Also I might be blind but it looks like a smaller camera button is inset in the bigger button. Am i seeing things?

      • lol, volume rocker.  most phones today have it on the right now because of docks if the USB is on the left so you can still access the buttons.  

        The car dock for the Bionic is unique though as it has a button on the dock to access the power button.

        I hope that’s true, at least. That’s considerably bigger than the Tbolt and pentile draws a LOT less energy. That said, I never had a problem with my ‘bolt after I got a good ROM on it.

          but it is also dual core which is supposed to save battery life but with many dual cores it doesn’t seem to help. Usually moto is pretty good with battery life unlike HTC.

      Unfortunatly it is not.  My son got to hold one at his Verizon store.  He said it is almost identical in size and function to the Droid 3.  He was pretty dissapointed as he really wanted this phone, but since about the only difference is 4G, and we don’t have 4G in our area, he decided to stay with the D3.  Someone should photo shoot a Charge next to a D3 and compare.  You will probably find they pics look identical.

      • Jjjjj

        1.)Ummm, I would think not having a keyboard is a difference. 2.)Given the phone is not out yet…whether your son decided to stay with the D3 or not…he has no choice, as this phone is not even out.  Not saying you are lying, but I think your son is.  🙂

        • Anonymous

          Don’t fault my son for the fact that I forgot to add about the physical keyboard.  Having held the phone and played with it, he can certainly have made the choice to keep his D3 or opt for the Bionic when it comes out.  I wasn’t saying he could have it today.  Don’t be a Jjjjjerk.

        4G, screen size, ram, battery.  Will be a huge upgrade for OG Droid owners like me, not so much for Droid 3 owners but then that phone did just come out.

      • Anonymous

        I doubt it is almost identical in size to the d3 the d3 has a 4 in screen and not to much excess bezel this has 4.3 so it seems from the pics that it will be noticeably longer than the droid 3. But I think it will still perform well most people seem to be getting good performance out of their d3’s. Also I am going to call bs on your son holding it. Not saying it isn’t possible but pretty much every store doesn’t/hasn’t had any yet so unless a corp rep came in then maybe.

      Unless the Stratosphere is the vzw gs2.  And where did you read about the improved pentile display?  I just posted a couple of minutes ago that the fine mesh look of the photon screen drove me nuts after a couple of minutes.  I might be able to excuse the smurf pictures that all recent motos are taking (yes I know about downloading aftermarket programs to fix the blue tint. I just think the cam should work correctly out of the box) if moto has managed to get rid of the fine screen look on the bionic screen.  Please give me a link or source so I can be excited about the bionic again.

            I’m pretty sure it is, between the front and back shots those are separate buttons, different locations. Front shot shows volume rocker. These angles are weird. 

          • Adam Newman

            I don’t see a camera button.  I see the volume rock on one side and on the other side you have the micro usb and hdmi ports that bulge out a little.  Unless I’m missing something.  It’s identical to the Droid X as far as the layout goes.

      Wow, that is one big ugly phone, no style at all, just a chunk of plastic. The GSII at least has an awesome look and is thin. Imagine carrying this thing around in your pocket and then having to squeeze it out of your pants- I’ll pass.
      The whole phone should be matte black, the shiny makes it look really cheap.

      • Why are all the pictures of this thing so damned blurry? It’s like they were all taken with an iPhone. 
        I’m sort of glad I jumped on the Droid 3. I’m betting that hump on back is for the extra battery this thing will need if it’s anything like the D3 only this one has for gee so keep that charger handy.

        Another comment about phone on here, that is just laced with poor pathetic innuendo. That of course should be used with physical relations with another person, not a phone. I sense so much pent up frustration.

      this phone is hideous- IDK if people are blind or just dumb? Not only is it hideous the hardware is out done in just about every way  possible by the gs2! Software wise this phone will be bing! up plopped full of bloatwares and on top of it the horrendous MOTOBLUR. So NO-THANK-YOU 

      • Jason

        SO than don’t come to a Bionic story and bitch and cry! Save your SGS2 deep throating for those stories! Easy as that! SGS2, SGS2, SGS2, SGS2 Get a grip!

      • SGSII

        I agree, this phone’s oversized 4.5″ screen (that noone even wants- 4″ is perfect and 4.3″ is acceptable) is trying to makeup for it’s outdated specs.
        The shiny front definitely makes it look like a cheap phone.  I cannot see pulling this thing out and anyone saying- wow that is a nice phone.  Poor execution Moto- I’m ready for the SGSII.

        • Dominick7

          Many people want a 4.5 inch screen. I’m one of many. There are plenty of phones for dwarves. 

        • Droiddoes

          Yes!  Thank you for the support.  Can’t wait for the white SGSII!

          They have to be pics from Mr. Blurry Cam because Mr. High Def Cam would betray them. (peep the blocked out code on the back) they are afraid other unkown identifiers could llead back to the tester.

    Looks pretty damn plasticy…

    • Anonymous

      My son, who actually got to hold one last week, said it had a much better feel.  Says the D3 has a plastic feel, but the Bionic has a more solid feel to it.  That was about all the good he had to say about it.

  • Jim Dandy

    Flip that biatch over 😛

    • Granted

      That’s what he said.. as he thrashed his gimp, tightened it’s noose, and berated him once again, for taking so long to flip the lady over. Another childhood memory, chilling and titalating my spine.

  • How astonishing! Look at that locked bootloader! I’m fascinated haha. 

    But still, looks pretty cool. Looks like a sexy DX

  • Sexy…I know this is going to turn into a hate fest on the Bionic. But you guys haven’t even seen the phone in person and how it performs. Maybe wait until it comes out before you trash it. After all it will be the FIRST dual core 4G LTE phone. Think about this too…the GS2 was announced in February and it still isn’t here, nor have we seen any leaks for the Verizon version. Seems like it’s taking just as long as the Bionic so please save the comments that the Bionic is too late because the same can be said for the GS2.

    • Mrcheese24

      yeah but the GS2 has been released in other countries whereas the bionic has been hidden since january

      • Well it’s pretty sad that Motorola can do a whole redesign of a phone and STILL beat Samsung to release. 

        • Zeadaplaya

          Micheal, the GS2 wasnt announced for the US until, like, late July!xD

          • Anonymous

            And last year the GS1 came out in the US a month after coming out overseas.

            How long has the GS2 been out overseas? Since May.

            But lets keep hating on Moto for delays…

        • Doesn’t VZW, in the end orchestrate, the phone’s release? I think VZW pushed the GS2 back to give their current lineup a chance to sell.

        Not really considering the Atrix is the original Bionic but better and beat all other super phones to the market by many months.

          Never considered that…excellent point.

          The Photon, Bionic, Atrix are all basically the same phone minus some spec changes.

          • Anonymous

            Right, except the redesigned XT875 Bionic has a lot more in common with the Droid 3.

          • Tabe

            I’d say completely different processors is a pretty major spec change. 

          • Anonymous

            And graphics, which is kinda a big deal in this age of ever changing software.(games and hardware acceleration)

    • tanknspank

      It’s not like the GSII was ever announced for VZW. The Bionic was debuted early in the year, specifically for VZW, and constantly got pushed back. BIG difference here.

      • Corymcnutt

        No, it was only delayed ONCE…Neither Moto or Verizon ever promised a release date; they were nothing but speculation by people on the forums.

        • Anonymous

          Yup…last time I counted it was only delayed once. From May to Summer. Summer doesnt officially start until June 20 something and doesnt end until Sept 20 something.

          So far thats one delay.

          • Anonymous

            Out sept 8th

        • Granted

          Yes but fairy tale speculation is what the troglodytes here live for and feed on. That’s the sad result, when your only hobby is phone.

      The difference is that at least the GS2 has been released somewhere, even if not in the US.  Granted there will be subtle changes for the US release, but generally speaking I think the phone will be the same (hopefully with 4G).  There is not other iteration of the Bionic being used anywhere.  Based on the rumored specs alone, Motorola dropped the ball on the Bionic.  They have had plenty of time to research the specs of phones to be released by other companies in Summer/ early fall and ended up putting out a phone with specs that are not beating the competition and in some instances not even matching.  I was very excited about the Bionic and was convinced it would have been my next phone, but now more than ever I am convinced I’ll go with the GS2.  Since they are rumored to be released at the same time, I’ll wait it out and see what the initial reviews of the actual units are before making the final decision…but as of now I am in GS2 territory…

  • going to be tough sell with htc vigor releasing just a month later…but i’ll definitely check it out

    • Famouzstarzz

      thats what im saying especially with the lame-o screen the DB is going to have

      No, not really.  Vigor will be a slightly updated version of the Sensation, mark my words.

  • Jturner

    Yeah… I don’t care for that back. Not at all sexy. I do however. like the hump on my Droid Charge.
