Motorola Droid Bionic seems to run Android 2.3 Gingerbread and have a new CPU now
Back in April, Motorola announced that Verizon’s Droid Bionic has been delayed because the company wanted to “incorporate several enhancements” and also change its design a bit.
At that time, I assumed one of the enhancements would be an upgrade from Android 2.2 to Android 2.3 Gingerbread – and it looks like the upgrade has already happened.
Apparently, a Droid Bionic running Gingerbread has been benchmarked by someone, and the results, albeit incomplete, have appeared over at Swedish website Nena.
Another thing that’s mentioned in the benchmark results is the Bionic’ GPU: PowerVR SGX 540. Its existence means Motorola isn’t using Nvidia’s Tegra 2 processor for this Droid anymore, but a new dual-core CPU, likely from Texas Instruments.
Of course, we can’t be sure of these details for now. Motorola promised that the new LTE-capable Droid would be released by Verizon “this summer”, so it shouldn’t be long until the smartphone finally hits the shelves.
