Another New DROID Bionic Gallery Surfaces, Looking More Beautiful by the Minute

Fresh off of our DROID Bionic gallery from yesterday afternoon, we have a second set of pics that may be a little less blurry in some instances.  Still no perfect profile shots, but we do get a clearer look at the front side including that metallic chin, a 2.3.3 lock screen (which we’re sure/hoping will be gone at launch), notification light, and that big ol’ mysteriously-sized screen.  This phone is really matching up perfectly to all of those shots we saw back in June through a variety of overseas forums.

This device has been one of the most hotly debated around Droid Life since the Thunderbolt’s delay fiasco and we all know how that device has faired.  Let’s hope Moto and Verizon end up surprising us with this one.  It feels like we deserve something spectacular after a year of so-so phones.  According to the leaked roadmap from yesterday, the Bionic could be headed for a September 8th release which is 35 days to be exact.

*Note – As some of have pointed out in the comments, the 4G logo has moved to a different spot than what we saw yesterday.  We’re pretty sure this phone is just a slightly older build than what you saw in the other gallery.  And that would make sense since this is running older software.  No major changes though.

Gallery after the break.  

Cheers ___!

    Looked at the EXIF data, looks like these were taken by a Motorola phone.  Camera’s gotten better?

Those people ended up as a result excited to study them and have honestly been taking advantage of them. We appreciate you truly being considerably accommodating and for utilizing these kinds of high-quality issues millions of individuals are really eager to discover. Our own sincere apologies for not saying thanks to earlier.

    If its a slider this will be a deal breaker for me.  If they consider this a enhancement they are crazy.  Old design better!  NO SLIDER!

  • I have to point out my respect for your kind-heartedness in support of all those that have the need for help on this particular area of interest. Your personal commitment to getting the message all over had been certainly practical and has frequently made those just like me to realize their aims. The informative tutorial indicates a whole lot to me and extremely more to my office colleagues. Thanks a ton; from each one of us.

  • I simply had to say thanks yet again. I am not sure the things I might have implemented in the absence of the type of techniques contributed by you over such theme. It truly was the fearsome case in my circumstances, however , considering a new well-written form you dealt with the issue forced me to weep over joy. I am just grateful for the work and then wish you know what a powerful job you are always getting into instructing others by way of your web site. Most probably you haven’t met all of us.

  • Dominick

    Don’t know if people said this already but I’m guessing that that lip will be not just for grip but to protect the touch sensitive buttons (if not also the screen), making it harder to accidentally touch them when putting it in a case/holster or in one’s pocket?

  • Thickmadame114

    I don’t like that it looks like the droid but I still want it. Also I hope the camera and flash are better because the x camera is horrible in the dark where samsung cameras are bright.

    What’s beautiful about that? Looks like the original droid. Yes it does.

    The blue lock screen showing the time, also has 3d.  The battery icon looks a little blurred, the times have shadows.  The time in the center has shadows on both sides.  Everything else is in focus.

    • Flippindewd

      Actually, i think it’s just blur from the camera.  On the lock screen, the little white light at the very top right of the phone has the “shadow” also.

  • mathwiz

    The screen with the red electronics background is 3D.  The inside, back of a box is recessed.

  • mathwiz

    It is a 4.5″ screen!

    Using 1 cm for the charger.  Measure the verticle pixels 65 (a little diagonal) along the edge of the phone.  Measure the the centerline of the phone top to bottom 875 (same diagonal).  Divide 875 / 68 = 13.46 cm.  Divide by 2.54 = 5.3″.  Upscale the other images to 5.25 to 5.3″ and the screen is 4.5″.  Thank you Pythagorean.

  • NEX

    Verizon changed their logo on the phone?

  • Wingandaprayer72

    People, look at the photos.  This phone does not have a lip!  It does not resemble the droid 1, 2 or 3.  Look at the photos.  it is an angled piece of plastic at the bottom.  It is a clean new design.  It drives me crazy that people think this phone has a flat chin like the OG droid…IT DOES NOT.

  • I’m sure people are gonna be stoked for the constant redraw the phone is gonna rock, the choppy lag that blur brings and locked down to the ground system it also rocks.

  • Mojer74

    Don’t beat me up too bad….but…doesn’t this look like it has a keyboard underneath the screen.

    I don’t see that ugly bump on the back of phone around the camera. I a hoping it comes with a smooth back, that bump was turning me away from what looks to be one hot phone. Have the Thunderbolt and will probably still jump on this one and share my time between phones. Motorola makes great phones, hoping it comes with an unlockable bootloader, I have to be able to root it and flash roms.

  • Even though I’m skeptical on this phone, it looks pretty damn sexy. 
    ALSO…it’s cool that it’s gonna be bogged down by Motoblur. 

  • Bbrutcher

    if this phone does indeed havethe same qhd crap that my x2 has not a chance in hell i would waste my money on it!

  • decisionsdecisions

    Im a little torn between which phone to get here.  either this bionic or the vigor.

    the bionic is going to have 1gig of ddr2 ram, wireless charging cover, 8mp camera, longer expected battery life over htc, and that solid droid feel.

    where as the vigor will have a 1.5 dual processor, and that 720 screen.  don’t know if the ram will be ddr2 or not, let alone how much of it will be there

    i cant remember if the bionic is going to have that 3d acceleration chip like the vigor will.

    and htc is more likely to have an unlocked boot loader before the bionic ever will.

  • Are we absolutely certain that this baby doesn’t have a keyboard?  If it does, as a D3 owner, I’m going to be Mister Pissed!

    • James_Ever

      It looks more like the DROID2 series just larger. Its bigger though. I am still wondering about the screen, I have a Droid3 and while pixelation is not a problem on this device I see what many of those talking about the DroidX2 and the PenTile screen, as the larger it is the more noticeable it does become. So if the screen is 4.5′ then people may notice it. I hope not though for all of those that have been waiting on this device.

    Why is it so hard to get quality pics when phone’s come with 8 mega pixels these days???

    • Anonymous

      it depends on a number of things matt

      low light = slow shutter speeds = blurry pictures
      low light + no flash = blurry pictures
      low light + no flash + nervous tester hands = blurry pictures

      before you guys start ragging on the person who is taking the pictures please realize his whole job depends on what he is doing right now. If he gets caught he will lose his job. To some people that’s pretty important and not worth getting professional pictures over.

          that would be quite a feat if they used the same phone to take pictures of itself. that would be truly bionic

    wasn’t this phone supposed to have one of those back covers that can wirelessly charge the device on one of those pads?
     if so than how can it make full contact with that hump where the camera is?

    • Droiiid

      the bottom of the phone will also touch down…..it will just be on an incline

      • waiting

        yes but there will be a big gap of space between the bottom edge and the peak of the hump because it is concave

        • Droiiid

          right so they’ll just put the charging contacts at the bottom edge

          • waiting

            you could be right there as i don’t have the knowledge of how exactly those types of chargers work.  i don’t know exactly how much surface contact they need to make the charge happen

    UGHHHH! If you don’t like the damn phone don’t get it!! Shut up already about it! Most people are going to get this because everyone that got a OG droidlike myself is coming up on a upgrade, they won’t wait months to see whats around the corner so they will get this. There aren’t that mant people either that can afford to go get new phones every 2 months either so this will be what most will have for the next 20 months!

        I noticed the pentile right away at the store when the droid x2 first came out. It was like I was looking at the screen through a pair of mesh shorts.

        • Anonymous

          Same here. The screen alone kept me from dropping the hammer on upgrading from the DX to the DX2.

        • Sean

          not gonna lie: it’s mostly noticeable on the white “activate” screen.. I’m gonna have to inspect it further in-store; however, if penTile means greater battery life, then it’s not an absolute deal breaker. also, despite the low battery life on my buddies EVO 3D, I would want to compare it with the HTC Vigor. on the other hand, the sooner I can ditch my busted D1, the better- and I’m not waiting for Oct/Nov for this HTC thing to drop.

      • tanknspank

        Everything alright..? O.o

        I would like to point out though that the screen is actually pretty noticeable, if you keep an eye out for things like that like some of us do.

    I just got a call from Verizon because I have three lines eligible for upgrade and when I mentioned waiting for the Bionic the representative told me they were now calling it the Bionic Targa. She also mentioned that some features were dropped. I’m taking everything she said with a grain of salt 1.) because she’s just a customer sales representative in a call center and 2.) because she may have been trying to persuade me to buy any other phone right away to get me locked into another contract.

    • Stelv81

      What features did they say were dropped? Manufactures have been having trouble incorporating lte and newer hardware.

      • Anonymous

        She didn’t specify and I could only assume she was trying to downplay the Bionic so I would get something else right away instead of waiting.

  • Irishfascist1986

    It just looks like a Droid 3 without the slide out keyboard

  • You know, I’m really on the fence about this phone. I love it, but I hate it because it’s taken so long to release. It’s caused seemingly intelligent people to post ridiculous comments slamming the damn phone, when in reality, it’s still the hottest phone due to release soon. I don’t know about the rest of you, but buy it or not, i still can’t wait to get my hands on one of these and give it a test spin, and see how it compares to my old Droid X. Is it going to blow me away or just be like eh.. yeah it’s better, but not really that great.

    And I think the double chin is a good idea.. it gives your fingers a place to rest on when you’re on a call so you don’t hit the capacitive buttons… it doesn’t look very deep either

    anyone know why Motorola can’t make a phone that registers battery at lower than 10% increments?  I know at 20% it can register 5% increments, but why is it that every other mfg can do 1% increments starting with 100%?   It’s ridiculous

    well I like it. The old design was tacky and too thick. This looks sleek and sexy and the chrome border serves to break up the monotony of just having one color and material all the way around the phone. Plus one of the commenters is right. this small raise in the chrome lip around the screen is nice for keeping the screen off the desk when its put facedown, which is handy. The fact of the matter is moto, samsung, htc, etc. can never please everyone with there designs, SO there will always be haters but there will also always be someone who likes the phone. I for one love this new bionic design. Haters proceed to hate ….

          it looks like what the droid x2 should have been … and it looks to be around the same size and i think the droid x was way oversized to begin with

      • TomHolmes

        Have you ever seen a Droid 3? That “shiny plastic” that you speak of is a very sweet gunmetal grey material and it’s very quality-looking. Look, take any Samsung phone ever made, pick the part of it that has the best quality look and feel on it, and imagine an entire phone where every aspect of the device radiates that kind of quality. That is a Motorola phone. You may not like the form or the specs or the pentile screen, but they are built like a Mercedes tank.

        As long as I’m on vehicle analogies, the SGSII is like a Corvette. Sleek and sexy and a single fender bender is likely to total it. Put an Otterbox defender on it and it will mostly  stand up okay though. Mostly.

        • SGSII

          I’ve seen the Droid3 and compared to the OG Droid (which I still own and use since launch day in Nov. 09′), I’d much rather have the matte black then the shiny.

  • Shamrich

     I wonder if the Bionic will have the same craptastic camera as all the other Motos.  I am not in love with this anymore and I’m honestly thinking the only reason I would even give it a 14 day tryout is if the screen is enormous.

  • Turb0wned

    Move along, nothing to see here just another ugly phone by moto. For that they should have kept it the way it looked in January.

  • Nothing here making me want to go buy one.  In June, maybe.   This is just more of the junk that keeps coming in on this phone.  4G, unlocked bootloader, HD screen, and good battery is what is required.  At most, Moto has 2 of those.

  • My contract is up on the 6th, so the 8th would be perfect.

    Is that another speaker above the camera?? Seems like it from the grill, maybe this is going to be an entertainment powerhouse..

    Doesn’t the boot logo on the Bionic have to include the “Dual Core” text under the “M”? Not that they’re related but this makes me wonder if it will be running 2.3 when it goes on sale…

  • Anonymous

    Beautiful is definitely an over statement. Looks like any other android phone. Android isn’t really known for beautiful aesthetics.

    I’m waiting for this phone to come out. I’m pretty sure this thing is way over-hyped, but if not then maybe it’ll be my next phone soon.

    • every phone is over hyped

  • TB1

    wonder why on we don’t see :dual core” like we do on the D3 when the phone boots up? is that nothing something they’ll put on all phones? 

    • Stelv81

      I bet it is will be a 1.5 single core or something lol

  • Anyone notice that it is plugged into a Blackberry charger? Wtf?

  • Stelv81

    I want to know where the person that designed the look of this phone went to school…so I can recommend that know one go there. Also same thing with the person/people that designed blur. Did they grab some hobo’s off the street to design the physical look of moto phones and software?

  • Dave

    Looks nice….but, why can’t any of these leaks ever have a good side profile shot or comparison. 🙁

  • Anonymous

    That is a lot of space around the screen.  If that is a 4.5″ screen, that phone will make the Droid X look like an HP Veer.  Also appears to have stereo speakers which is a plus.  Couldn’t really see the one next to the camera with the other pics.

  • Pilotbluemike

    why was the 4G logo in a different spot on yesterday’s pics?

    • Droiiid

      noticed the same thing.  this is obviously an older build of the phone.  Older android 2.3.3+different logo placement (which by the way matches up with the pics from june)=Revision 2 of bionic

  • Tabe

    Hmm, why is it seemingly running an older blur than the D3 is running? That’s not the newer lockscreen that the D3 has, at least. Maybe he has an early test model…

  • Dash Speeds

    Nice looking, but its too late for me. I need a new phone before I leave for college on the 4th (still on my parent’s family plan and I wouldn’t get my Dad’s corporate discount in New York) so the 8th is juuust out of my window. *sigh*

      You can have a copy of your dad’s corporate badge and take that to Verizon in NY.  I did that a while back when I was younger.

  • On second thought, the “Chin” on the bottom actually looks like it has a bit of a flow to it. I wish they would take that tacky chrome off, guess it could be covered up with a case though. I’d imagine they would put new blur on it before launch…no?

  • BigUps

    Motorola loves chins.  Obvious Jay Leno fans.

    • Or maybe they are making a reference to the godfather of phones, the OG Droid.

      • Thats what I was thinking 

      • Anonymous

        If they wanted to pay homage to OG Droid, they wouldn’t blur it or lock the bootloader.

      • Anonymous

        this seems more plausible to me. the front design reminds me a lot of the OG Droid and I’m sure that was their intention.

  • Anonymous

    The OG Droid lip is dated and unnecessary.  The original Bionic looked 10 times sexier.  I don’t understand why they couldn’t just change the internal components and leave the look alone.

    HTC Vigor here I come.

    • Dash Speeds

      Really? Ew…
      The original Bionic looked as generic as phone come.

      Yeah the new design is much nicer, I thought the old Bionic was ugly.

  • Doesn’t look like a Pentile… Could be wrong tho.

  • it looks like a droid2 but ironed

      Yes. This phone is ugly, no doubt.

      • your dont even like motorola tho?? so any phone would of been ugly for you

        • Stelv81

          Right. I think all Moto phones are ugly. But the first Bionic model looked nice.

            well the original bionic had a different design then other motorola products … it was not the usual design standards that they use, so i could see what he means

  • Bob

    WOW. I assumed by that chin thing there was a slide-out keyboard, ha, this thing is ugly.

  • Beautiful or BORING by the minute?

    While this device is no slouch in the spec department, I just find the look to be re-hashed and absolutely love the contoured look the original concept utilized.

  • 11knives

    I’m not really into the “metallic chin” or any metallic for that matter, from my experience that type of finish can scratch too easy. Maybe I’m wrong? Waiting to see some “on screen” buttons!

  • Juju

    o% battery life – that’s not promising….

    • Get used to that screen. If it’s anything like the D3 you’ll need to carry a portable generator with you.

    • The model or tracking number of the test device. The person sending in the pics could get the tester in a lot of trouble.

      • thanks for answering that. I figured it was something that would let them know who leaked the photos I was just wondering what it actually was.

    It looks like it has terrible battery life since the battery is dead in the amount of time it took to take the picture. 🙂

      The corresponding model number for that particular handset. Blocks it out so he isn’t identified for posting pics and loses his job.

  • That double chin thing at the bottom makes the phone look like a cheap piece of shit. I may just wait for the Vigor or SGII after seeing these.

        It looks a bit like the OG Droid and Droid 3 tho…

        • M Ohana

          it looks like a mix between the droid X/X2 and the droid 2 and 3 …. it also looks like what the droid X2 should have been

        It definitely looks like a Droid 2

          No, it looks nothing like it. It’s a cross between the Droid 3, X and OG Droid.

      • It’s a Droid 3 with a bigger screen and no keyboard.

        • Anonymous

          And LTE, 1GB RAM.

    • Maybe it is so apple wont sure them, because having just one lip on the bottom would make it look like an i*hone according to apple

          Gorilla glass + Super AMOLED screen + plastic piece of crap back and crappy touchwiz = garbage

    • palomosan

      Agree, that really makes the phone look ugly.

    • If you look at the FCC filing, the chin is where the LTE Antenna is. Just like the Droid1’s 3G antenna was in its chin.

    • ltfrazer

      I’m glad the is the chin at the bottom.  I’ve found it a convenient way to hold the phone on my OG Droid, especially when using the tactile keyboard (which I do all the time).  

    • Wingandaprayer72

      It does not have a double CHIN people.  look at the pics.  its angled smooth not a double chin.  Never has been.  Look at the light reflections people.  It looks great and does not have a chin like the droids!

        These pictures must be OLD, they are even different than the gallery from yesterday. The Verizon and 4GLTE are in different places on the back for starters….

    • Lmrojas

      My thoughts exactly, dont tell me Moto but the OLD version of Blur on this beast….

  • They should show it with CWM flashing a kernel so we know it has an unlocked bootloader. 

  • Stephen D

    The looks like a keyboard-less Droid 3. But what’s with the old Blur?

      People, look at the photos.  This phone does not have a lip!  It does not resemble the droid 1, 2 or 3.  Look at the photos.  it is an angled piece of plastic at the bottom.  It is a clean new design.  It drives me crazy that people think this phone has a flat chin like the OG droid…IT DOES NOT.

      • Sean

        ummm.. no. sorry, but that’s a lip. i like it, though. : )

      • M Ohana

        ummm no that is still a lip … it is very much like the other droids yeah its different but it looks like the droid x’s just angled

    I’m not liking that lip thing around the screen. If there is no keyboard, why even include that? It makes the phone look ugly IMO

    • PhoenixMike

          I believe the antenna is stored up the backside edge. That’s where it is in the OG Droid…

      • Anonymous

        on my OG Droid I use the lip in landscape mode all the time to hold my phone. It’s the most useful thing about the design of the phone. I’m glad this phone has a lip, especially if it’s a 4.5” screen. It’ll make it a lot easier to hold

        • M Ohana

          its 4.3 not 4.5 …. 

    • Pilotbluemike

      i dont like it either, looks like they just needed something shiny to write “Verizon” on…

      • If you look at the FCC filing, that’s where the LTE radio is. The chin at the bottom.

    • It’s not a lip, it’s just more space at the bottom of the phone…. just like EVERY OTHER phone has…

      • Exactly. Every Android phone has space below the capacitive buttons.

        • John

          It’s for the radios, just like the OG Droid I suspect.. 

          and no it’s not just deadspace so there’s room below the buttons.. lol

        • palomosan

          But that chin is ugly, plain and simple.
