Leaked Manual Confirms More Droid Bionic Features

TechnoBuffalo has gotten their hands on a purported tips and tricks guide for the upcoming Motorola Droid Bionic and it has revealed some previously unconfirmed features while confirming some of the details we saw in that initial leak.

It appears that the Motorola Droid Bionic will indeed coming with a 4.3-inch qHD screen. Nothing new but that should put doubts to rest. It’ll also have an 8MP camera with LED flash capable of 1080p video recording and will feature a front-facing camera with an unknown pixel count for video calling. That’s not new either. We’ve already gotten a good look at both Droid Bionic cameras.

Now, let’s take a look at some of the other stuff. First, it’s going to have mobile hotspot support. Most of you probably assumed this was going to be the case and now we have confirmation.

It’ll also have the Zumocast app on board which will allow you to stream content from your computer on your phone and it will have a grand total of three microphones situated around the device.


And as we deduced from photos awhile back, the Droid Bionic is going to have webtop capabilities in a similar way that the Motorola Atrix 4G does. That means that it will be able to be plugged into an optional dock to be used like a laptop.

The Droid Bionic will also have access to the same HDMI-out Mirror Mode that is on the Droid X2 allowing you to take content on your phone and play it on your HD television. It’s a fantastic feature, believe me. It’ll also have 16GB of internal memory and will also have 1GB of DDR2 RAM on board. Thank you Motorola for not slouching on the RAM.

Wi-Fi printing is apparently a go as well.

We now have a pretty clear cut view of what to expect from the Droid Bionic when it arrives, we just hope that Verizon and Motorola make that rumored September 8th release date official sometime soon.

So what do you think? Is Motorola going to live up to your expectations?


  1. i think sept 8th is realistic. I really want this phone but I cannot upgrade till 11/30 so If the moto hd is released I will get that maybe with ice cream sandwich that is what I really want is a phone with a current os not to wait 6 month’s to get it. yes I know the htc has crazy specs but I just don’t think it will have cool accesoried for it like the moto we will see.

    • I am ready for an upgrade right now, just trying to hold out for the bionic.   Its killing me though…  Also, since Google has bought up Moto’s phone division, I think we will see ice cream sandwich on the bionic with a quickness!!

  2. “And as we deduced from those photos awhile back, the Droid Bionic is going to have webtop capabilities in the same way that the Motorola Atrix 4G does. ”

    Webtop != Laptop Dock…therefore it’s not “the same way…the Atrix 4G does”

    Webtop is basically the fail version of laptop dock

    • Its called webtop on the atrix also. Its the same thing. I used the atrix for quite some time and the pics of the bionic in the lapdock are exactly the same.

  3. What about the resizable widgets…. is that something Motorola does?  Or is that something in 2.3?  I knew the Xoom had that capability, but I thought that was because of the 3.0 OS.

    • Thats a feature of Motorola’s new “applications platform”. The Droid 3 is the first phone they put out with this feature. You can see software demos of the Droid 3 on YouTube if you are curious to see it in action.

      • The droid X has resizeable widgets when it was released over a year ago. Not all widgets are resizeable, but many of the moto specific ones are.

  4. I wish these companies would STOP putting 16 gig cards in the phone and either stick a 32 in there, or none at all and reduce the price.  I already have a 32 gig card, so I guess it doesn’t REALLY matter… but get rid of the 16 gig card and take $20 off the price.  I’ve got 6 useless 16 gig cards lying around.

      • Wow, that was thought provoking.  So you wouldn’t like the price of the phone to be cheaper and to have the option of what sized card you wanted in your phone?

          • $20 is $20! It’s not just $20. Afterwards you have to go buy the 32gig card which is $50 generally. Then you have a useless $20 16 gig card. To some people $20 is significant.

        • dont be such a jew. you are already spending 300 on a phone… they could just leave it at 16gb and not have any external storage.. and keep the price the same… dont complain idiot

        •  You can always put whatever size card that you want in the phone…Then you can use the card that you took out with a micro card adapter as a thumb/flash drive. Eventually these cards go bad after so much use, and it is nice to have spares!

    • rex_d, learn how to read, or at least comprehend what you read. The article says 16gb of internal memory. It doesn’t say anything about what size mem card will be in the phone.

      • The PICTURE does say a “preinstalled 16GB microSD card” …. it’s the last line of the list of ADDITIONAL FEATURES in the f-ing picture.  Why do you have to be rude?

      • Re-reading your snide reply has just gotten me irritated. I should not waste the anger on someone who makes posts like you did, but something about your comment has just gotten under my skin. You sound like a know-it-all, cocky, judgmental prick. In your reply you are telling me to learn how to read or “at least comprehend”… who are you? Do you know me? You couldn’t just tell me that you didn’t see anything in the “article” about the size of the memory card? Then I could have pointed you in the right direction, to the PHOTO that shows features and specs of the phone. People like you are the one’s who make forums miserable. When you post a reply, try to do it without assuming you know everything. You were wrong. The size of the memory card is revealed in the picture embedded in the article. So, not only were you wrong, you were also RUDE about it. Coincidentally, another “Adam” made cheap shot on a post I made a couple weeks ago… was that you as well? If it was, quit stalking me… I’m going to start thinking you’ve got a crush.

  5. Now that Google’s purchasing Motorola Mobility, I feel justified in not buying any Motorola handsets until they do away with whatever they’re calling MotoBlur these days. And dare I dream of a phone without uninstallable apps?

  6. So it would appear it took motorola six months to switch duel core processors and add 512 of rom ???

    • No. If you check the history details, what Moto did was to kill the original Bionic and replace it with another model they already had in the wings code named Targa. Originally, the Targa was to be a DIFFERENT model from the Bionic. But when the original failed, the Targa got renamed to be the new Bionic. Since the Targa was not as far along, this is what caused the “delay”.

      • Understood. It took them how long to switch from tegra to ti add 512 more rom and jam it into the targa case??? What real enhancements do we get from that time frame ???

        • More battery power.  The first form factor failed because it didn’t have enough power to last the day.  See Thunderbolt for how this affects user opinion of the device.  Increasing the form factor is not just about cramming the same hardware in a different box… have you ever taken a smartphone apart?  It’s an engineering nightmare trying to cram all that stuff in such a small space and still cool everything sufficiently.  The increased thickness didn’t give them any more room to play with, just more space for the battery, so they still had that entire engineering process to go through.
