Verizon Motorola DROID Bionic Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Update Leak Was Just A False Alarm

Earlier this week, an official leaked build for the Verizon Motorola DROID Bionic made its way on to the web. However this excitement was soon to fade when it was revealed that the release still did not contain Ice Cream Sandwich but was an update to Android Gingerbread.

Leaked Verizon Motorola DROID Bionic build not Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

The handset will still run on the Android Gingerbread when this does officially release and tells us that the guys at Motorola and Verizon are continuing to work on this outdated OS, which is not the best of news for everyone waiting to get their hands on ICS.

The Motorola DROID Bionic comes with Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread and features a large screen measuring 4.3 inches, with the only downside being a low resolution of 540 x 960. On the plus side it does have dual core processors and it comes with 1GB RAM which ensures it is fast and should easily handle Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (we’ve been seeing smartphone with 512MB RAM being left out of the ICS update cycle). The handset is not short on memory either with 16GB inbuilt which can be further expanded up to a massive 32GB.

Other features of the Motorola DROID Bionic include a 1080p HD 8 megapixel camera and a camera on the front for video chat which offer decent quality. To make the most out of the HD recordings there is also the addition of a Micro HDMI, Type D slot to watch movies recorded on the phone on a large screen TV.
