Motorola’s DROID HD breaks cover, makes the DROID Bionic look thick

So the Motorola DROID Bionic is all the rage these days. It’s still a device that Verizon has already shown off, but the wireless carrier is about being as coy as possible regarding the future release of the device. Official details about the handset are still unknown, but there’s plenty of speculation out there. With that in mind, seeing another new device, one that could potentially already out-shine the Bionic, isn’t something that most people want to see. That is, unless they’re ready to take the Bionic off their holiday shopping list, and input the DROID HD in its place.

As you can see in the image above, the already impressive looking DROID Bionic (on the left) is out-classed by the shockingly thin DROID HD (on the right). While that may not be enough to warrant a switch from those who have been eagerly anticipating the release of the Bionic, the stats may be that proverbial straw. For the DROID Bionic, we’re still looking at the 4.5-inch touchscreen display; the same 1GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor; 1GB of RAM; and an 8MP camera around the back. All great specifications to be sure, but then there’s the DROID HD’s rumored stats:

A 4.5-inch touchscreen display that will either be a qHD display, or presumably a 1280×720 variant. On the back there’s an 8MP camera that’s capable of 1080p HD video capture, and a front-facing camera of unknown megapixels. With these rumored specs for the DROID HD, the remaining information about the handset will probably just make it even more impressive. Especially with how thin it is. Both devices feature HDMI/microUSB ports for charging and media sharing. It may also come down to whether or not the DROID HD is a 4G LTE-capable device, as we know the DROID Bionic is. It will be interesting to see how Verizon and Motorola play off these handsets later this year. Will they launch around the same time, or will Verizon get the BIONIC out of the gate early enough that the DROID HD will have to be a handset those early adopters will have to pass over? Only time will tell.
