If you’re waiting for Motorola and Verizon’s dual-core, 4G LTE beast of a phone– also known as the Droid Bionic— it looks like your wait is almost over. Best Buy has posted their September Mobile Phone Guide and what do ya know, the Droid Bionic is featured a few times as one of the phones to get if your on Verizon. Best Buy also seems to have confirmed some of the key specs of the Droid Bionic (something we weren’t sure about once Motorola said they were going to re-do the Droid Bionic a few months ago), and like the original Bionic, this looks to be the most powerful Verizon 4G phone we’ve seen yet. Here are the full specs:

  • 4.3 inch qHD screen— Like the  Photon 4GSensation 4G and most other top of the line phones today. In short, this is a screen that will make everything you view on it look great.
  • The latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1 GHZ dual core processor– So everything on the phone is as fast as that Verizon 4G LTE.
  • 8 megapixel back camera with front camera for video chat— The back camera can also record videos in full 1080p HD.

Now Motorola has confirmed that the Bionic will be coming in September, with the latest rumors saying it will launch September 8th for $299.99 with new 2 year contract and data plan (which makes sense to us given how all the other Verizon 4G LTE phones started out in that $300 price range when they launched). There are also rumors that the Bionic will get its own laptop dock like the AT&T Atrix, but no word on that from the Best Buy ad.

Hopefully this all means that Verizon and Motorola will make this all official soon. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: The Verizon Wireless homepage now has link to a sign up page for email updates on the Bionic. There’s still no confirmed price or release date but it looks like all that is just a matter of time now.

  1. Yea…i’m on page 7….no such picture.

  2. I am excited for the Droid Bionic to come out! I am looking for a phone that will be fast and reliable. Judging from the fact that it has a dual-core processor and 4G, I think that it has the performance to back up its look. Both of these should make the downloading and streaming easy for the phone. I am a huge movie streamer, and I think the Photon would do great if I got one. I use the DISH Remote Access app for all my streaming needs. I love this app because it lets me stream live TV and recorded shows from my 922 SlingLoaded receiver to my phone anywhere I am! Whether I am on my way to school, or in another country, I can watch any show I subscribe to. As a customer and employee of DISH Network, I have been using the app for a long time, and I know it will work wonders on the Bionic!
