The Droid Bionic had it all. A strong specification list, good hardware, and 4G LTE from the most popular US carrier. It even got a hardware refresh to make it sleeker and more attractive than when we last saw it at CES. Then suddenly, before it was even released, it was eclipsed by leaks of the new Droid HD.
An anonymous tipster leaked two images of the new device, one which shows it alongside the Droid Bionic, and another shows the device displaying the Android welcome screen.. According to the source, the Droid HD has a 4.5-inch display, 8MP rear camera capable of shooting 1080p video, along with a front facing camera. It is also speculated that as a high end device, the Droid HD will have a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, much like the Bionic. It also appears to be running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, but with manufacturer skins you can never know for sure.
What may make the Droid HD substantially better than the Bionic is the display. Due to the "HD" in the name, it is quite possible that the device will have one of the nifty 720p displays we have been hearing about. If that is he case, it could quickly become the most desirable Android smartphone.
However, all this depends on release date. As you can already see, the Droid Bionic has nearly been ruined by numerous delays, and now faces stiff competition. The Droid HD looks good now, but the Nexus Prime is slated for an October launch, and may have both a 720p display and Android Ice Cream Sandwich. I know that if I had a choice of either, I would choose the Nexus.
This Droid Bionic can be a hit, just as long as Verizon or Motorola doesn't delay it into oblivion.
If you want to see the Droid HD with its display turned on, you can find a picture after the break.
