Motorola Droid HD Captured on Camera Next to Droid Bionic

Well what do we have here? A new Droid handset from Motorola, perhaps? What is seen in the above image is none other than the rumored Droid HD, pictured here for the first time. From what e gather the device will get a 4.5-inch display, one that very well could feature an HD resolution of 1280×720. At the very least expect qHD. It also gets an 8MP camera with 1080p video recording, sideloading SIM and microSD slots, and microUSB/microHDMI ports. The assumption is the phone will feature a dual-core CPU and possibly 4G LTE.

What is most noticeable, however, is the device’s thinness, which is apparent when seeing the device next to the Motorola Droid Bionic. Now the Bionic is no thin wonder by any means, so the overall girth of the Droid HD could be somewhat of an illusion, but there is no reason to think the handset could be measuring in the Galaxy S II range in terms of thinness. While we could easily hope the Droid HD will launch as an Ice Cream Sandwich device, it appears it be running a standard Gingerbread build. Either way, the new handset is enough to make us second guess our lust for the Droid Bionic. Is the Droid HD really the one worth holding out for?

    all i do is torture myself looking at upcoming phones. fact is. Im sticking with my nexus s for a very long time. just to let the dust settle with all the dual core stuff. i want to skip it and/or wait for tegra 2 to be a thing of the past

  • Alex Lock

  • joshhyde

    Is that a PC in the background? Hell no! It’s a Mac!

    • Alex Lock

  • B2L

    I’m impressed, for being a Motorola device it’s actually quite sexy.

  • King_James_The_Wicked

    I want a new HTC superphone for Verizon like the Vigor to come out and be awesome.

    Please let this get released before Christmas…

  • Droosh

    First the SGS2, then the HTC Vigor, and now this! I must resist the urge to get a Bionic.

  • Rocktoonz

    Looks like a Photon to me.

  • J Dub

    At this rate one could be waiting and never upgrade their device.

  • zim2704

    Looks to be an AMOLED screen, take a look at the engadget photos and check out the glare from the camera flash…..that is a very noticeable AMOLED screen glare.

    • Dave4321

      If you look closely at the green letters you can see screen door effect like you do on a pentile matrix screen. The original samsung samoled screens were pentile matrix.

  • Magus2300

    Too big!

  • tehsusenoh

    Fffft. I liked the Bionic… but now there’s this… It never ends!

  • David Mathisen

    Where does it say “Motorola” anywhere on the phone? I went through all the pictures and I don’t see a manufacturer name anywhere. I’m thinking this could be an LG or Samsung phone.

    Edit: Found it. In relief on the gray part at the top. It is Motorola.

    • koopawnkode

      look through the pictures again.. a big ‘ol M on the battery confirms it

      Edit: Disqus posts comments too late sometimes! I replied but your edit came through first.

  • JulianZHuang

    MMy contract ends at December. I still got time.

  • wasteofskin

    guys this is just a scrapped bionic prototype. Thats it, nothing to see here. Some dude thinks its funny to get us all excited over a beta device. NEXT!!

  • Jose Nunez

    this is def an hd amoled screen. Check out the blue-ish tone on the reflection.

    • dingxizheng

      yeah, I agree with you, this is must be a oled display

  • Bon K

    Again, it is too big and what is with the shape around the corners?
    I just looked at a picture of Atrix and I liked the shape and size of it.
    I would love to have one just like that with a thinner body and HD screen.

  • cknight91

    The shape of the HD looks funny from the top angle – like it extrudes slightly near the bottom. Anyone else notice that?

  • Johngi

    ahhh skeeet skeet skeeet skeett skeet skeeet
