Hey Look, More DROID Bionic Pictures – This Time We See Under the Hood

As if you hadn’t had enough DROID Bionic pics for one week (galleries here and here), a couple of additional photos have popped up in a variety of forums.  We finally get to see what is under the battery cover!  Not sure why I just got so excited about that, but I did.  First thing we noticed was the 4G SIM card slot with a microSD card slot on top of it?  Odd, but OK.  And then you see those prongs that are centered just under the battery?  Pretty sure those are for inductive (wireless) battery charging – a nice plus.  And that’s pretty much it…

Oh, except for the second photo which must be from the kind of tester that we all would love to meet.  You know, the kind that tosses on ADW, circle battery widget, a custom set of icons and a minimalist clock to rid the phone of Blur.  Pic after the jump.

Cheers Devin, Tyler, Bardia and Phil!

    So I have a prototype Bionic and the battery life is insanely sick!!! Just in idle mode the battery has gone about 48 hours and I was still at around 30%. Active use of the battery is over a 24 hous!! I’m lucky if my daily use Thunderbolt goes even 1/4 of that on both scenarios.

    The battery in my test device is 1750 mAh but no idea if that’s what the production one will be. Screen is VERY crisp and clear. 1080p HD video, camera is as good as T-Bolt. The new MOTO-BLUR is actually not too bad. It didn’t take me very long to get used to it although I did miss the clock/weather widget from HTC Sense.

    I’ll be watching the release closely as my T-bolt maybe going out the door when they launch this thing.

      Assuming this is true can you verify if it has the problems usually listed with pentile screens.. visable pixels.. blurring color on motion…etc. Also wondering how the call signal strength is compared to the droid x and 4g strength is compared to say the Thunderbolt. I couldn’t get 4g once my door of the house was closed with the thunderbolt. A review would be awesome or even more impressions would be greatly appreciated. Wonderif you could comment on the bootloader for for those that care.

  • I paid $22.85 for an iPhone 4-32GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.com

  • digsoreos

    Perfect wallpaper and theme for a pixelated pentile display. 😉

  • Olgarcu7

    By the languages of the description on the batery it seems that it will be a worldwide launch. English, Spanish, Portuguese, french, korean, chinese and japanese.

      That is on pretty much every battery lol.

  • I have to express my thanks to you for rescuing me from this issue. Right after looking through the world-wide-web and getting solutions which were not pleasant, I thought my life was gone. Being alive minus the solutions to the difficulties you have solved by means of the post is a critical case, and the ones that would have in a negative way affected my entire career if I hadn’t discovered your web blog.

I won’t think twice to suggest the sites to any person who should receive tips about this matter.

  • waiting

    im guessing that we are going to start seeing tv commercials for this real soon

  • Li-Po battery looks good. That size at 3.8v, I’m guessing 1900-2200 mah. I really hope it is at least 2000 mah. Someone needs to shove the bar that high, since nobody else has pushed a LiPo battery for a phone to that point.

    • kq

      the tbolt has a 2750mah…and it fugly lol

  • I really hope this isn’t the finished product.  I liked the older render with the flat back and matte finish.  similar to the X’s finish.  High gloss is for the newbs =).  In all seriousness though I was hoping the phone would look a little cooler then this…

  • I am also writing to let you understand of the extraordinary encounter my friend’s child gained visiting your blog. She came to understand a wide variety of details, most notably what it’s like to possess an awesome giving character to have certain people really easily fully understand chosen advanced things. You actually did more than her expectations. Thanks for providing the essential, trusted, revealing and also easy tips on that topic to Evelyn.

It had been an absolute scary scenario for me, however , considering a new specialised technique you resolved it made me to weep for contentment. Now i’m thankful for the information and in addition wish you know what a great job your are providing instructing the rest via your webpage. Most likely you’ve never got to know all of us.

  • Pnicuh

    when is the pre-order August 31?

  • mathwiz

    Also, the image inside the screen looks 3d.  It looks like the inside of a box.  They are showing us three new features: 4.5 screen, 3D screen, and inductive charging contacts.

      That is adw launcher they have that theme/effect in adw

  • mathwiz

    Divide 875 / 65 = 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″.  Sorry had to fixed typo.

    • stevo

      3 x 8.6 = 25.8 ÷ 6 = 4.3″

  • 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 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.     

    • Dominick7

      I just about had it with the delays.. but if that’s true that along with these pics got me interested in it again.  4.5 inch screen would be great.. just hope its good quality and doesn’t have the downfalls of what people complain with in pentile screens. Please let this phone be impressive and not another let down.

      • Anonymous

        It’ll be pentile.

  • I will be buying this phone or at least getting it some way or the other 😉

  • Otsrocks

     who is up for some math, if someone can measure a/their BB usb charger, We can tell if its 4.3 or 4.5, yes?

  • Crack Monkey

    With this phone I doubt Verizon will have to invest in a “Hottie” like the T-Mobile girl to get customers.

    • Tabe

      T-mobile needs to try harder. Cause she’s hardly a hottie

  • Crack Monkey

    First thing I noticed was the size of the battery, about time but I guess it’s a requirement for the dual core 1ghz processor and all that 4G LTE goodness. My contract will be up for renewal in Sept so I’ll be happy to have the discount for a phone I assume will be quite expensive even with the 2 year renewal discount. I had the Droid OG and then got myself a killer deal on a DX on eBay. You know how some people are foodies, my wife calls me a phoney :->

    • Anonymous

      probably $299 on contract

  • I think they are using a skin to show us the screen since they must be under a strict NDA not to show Blur on this one.  I mean, otherwise we would have blur screenshots.  the only ones that we got that were leaked a long time ago is the app drawer and the info screen.  there is no definite evidence what the home screen will look like yet and it was rumored for a long time now that the Bionic will run a newer version of Blur not found on any device, that includes the Droid 3 and Photon.  I makes sense and since they are already using a custom skin on top of the Blur because they hate blur still, they saw it fit to still take a picture to show the front of the device.

    Thats my theory lol

    • Anonymous

      Well the photon does run a different blur than the droid 3 so it wouldn’t surprise me if the droid bionic had a different version also.

      • RW-1

        Oh no! We can’t have Blur Fragmentation !

        • Anonymous

          Well technically we don’t since it is no longer called blur=p

      Well the photon does run a different blur than the droid 3 so it wouldn’t surprise me if the droid bionic had a different version also.

    • And at this point the NDA would be pointless. The FCC has to lift the ban on external images and User’s Manual tomorrow, without an official announcement from VZW or Motorola. We should easily then have hi res pictures of the device, and know the entire spec, no problem.

    everyone who is asking about size. here’s a crazy idea. wait for it to come out and bring your own ruler.

  • yes, yes it is
