UK Droid Bionic: Competition for Galaxy S II and Sensation

By Updated on

Those of you in the UK will be feeling a little smug, as not only do they have the fantastic HTC Sensation, but also the Samsung Galaxy S II, which as we know has not even been released in states yet. So just imagine how those of you in the UK will feel with the recent rumors that the Motorola Droid might be coming their way?

For years the US has always got their handsets first, so seemed like justice had been served when they got the S II first. There is no date set yet for its release in North America, but there have been photos circulating of the Sprint and Verizon versions. Now the Bionic is not out yet across the pond, but do not think that the UK will see a release first, as most rumors suggest an August release in the US.

This would be considered a great move, as there are not as many Motorola handsets in the UK compared to the likes of Samsung and LG. The Droid Bionic would certainly make a great addition, as it is a beast in terms of features. You have a large 4.3-inch screen along with a dual-core processor, as well as 4G. However, this would be an issue for a UK version, as the likes of Vodafone and Orange are not even set up for the technology.

It is hard to say what Motorola would do as a way to make up for the lack of said feature – Fonehome suggests a free microSD card with large storage. The Droid Bionic would be a worthy contender to the Galaxy S II, although let us not forget that this is the handset that has been beating the iPhone 4 in sales in the UK.

If Motorola were to release their handset in the UK, then there are two things that we would like to point out. The first is that we believe that it would be Vodafone who would get the handset, but also how Samsung already has another rival planned, the Galaxy S II+. We cannot be certain how much truth there is to this, but we can tell you that the phone will have one major spec bump, and that is a possible dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

In recent years Motorola seemed to disappear into obscurity, so nice to see that they have finally got their act together and have some of the best Android handsets on the market. Nice to see that Samsung and HTC are now getting a run for their money – wonder what happened to LG?
