You saw some of the leaked Bionic pictures earlier today, but now thanks to PhoneHK we can give you even more information about the upcoming monster of a Motorola handset. First and foremost, this thing will (at least according to this test unit) be running Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread right out of the gate:
That's a relief. If the Bionic had shipped with Froyo, Motorola might have had a user rebellion on its hands. What other goodies were revealed by the generous leaker about the Bionic?
- 4.5" qHD display
- 8MP rear camera, 1080p video recording, plus front-facing camera
- WebTop dock accessory
- Brand-new BLUR
- 1750mAh battery (that's large)
You can see some of the new BLUR in action below in various screenshots, including a translucent notification bar and 3D homescreen previews:
Not bad, Motorola, not bad. I really like the direction Motorola's BLUR is going in terms of look and feel, it's a lot more polished than the austere and industrial look of BLUR on previous handsets, including the DROID X2. But a 4.5" screen? That's getting into Infuse territory, and that's a whole lot o' screen to stomach. But 4G LTE and dual cores with Gingerbread? This thing could be hard to resist. Watch out, Galaxy S II.
