Move over Droid Bionic and welcome to the Motorola Droid HD

By Posted 17 Aug 2011, 15:25

Many consumers have been waiting for the release of the Motorola Droid Bionic for months now. The much delayed handset looks to be finally coming out early next month, but the trouble is there are many other desirable handsets coming out including some from Motorola itself. It may be time for the Droid Bionic to move over and consumers to welcome the Motorola Droid HD.

There were many who were disappointed with the size of the Bionics display, but some images have appeared over at Engadget of the Droid Bionic that feature a handset with the name Droid HD alongside it. The Droid HD has what seems a 4.5-inch display that is thought to have at least a qHD display, and maybe even 1280×720 resolution as it is called the HD.

The handset seems to be running Android Gingerbread and has an 8-megapixel camera on the back with a LED flash, which has 1080p recording options. A Micro USB charging port and a Micro HDMI slot for showing content on your HDTV are also on the Droid HD. On the left hand side of the rather thin looking handset are slots for the SIM and MicroSD card, while on the other side there is the power and volume buttons

There are currently not many details of the device, but it will leave many potential Droid Bionic customers having even bigger second thoughts they may have already be having. The branding on the handset point to a Verizon handset, and although not quite as thin as the Galaxy S II it is not thought to have 4G compatibility.

As these images are from a possible tester in the wild the Droid HD could be set for release in the near future. This handset coupled alongside the likes of the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S II, and Droid Bionic is giving consumers the nice problem of being spoilt for choice. Use the link above for more images.

    I doubt the Droid HD has 4g LTE so unless it does, I’m not interested.  I really hope the Samsung Celox comes to Verizon as a 4g LTE phone.  If that happens, forget the Bionic.
