Here it is. Official word came straight from Motorola CEO about the release status of Motorola Droid Bionic, and it is not hitting the Verizon stores in early August, as we predicted earlier. Disappointed? We too. A few hours ago, Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha in an earnings call confirmed that the Verizon’s 4G LTE capable Motorola Droid Bionic, that was first announced at CES in January will be landing at Verizon stores in September. Exactly when in September the Droid Bionic will be launching has yet to be revealed out, as an exact date wasn’t mentioned by Jha.
Here are the few lines from Jha’s earnings call:
“We want to ensure that we deliver an exceptional consumer experience. Bionic will be the first device to deliver the combination of the power of LTE and a dual-core GHz processor. And it will be in the stores in September.”

Surprisingly, Jha has noted that the Motorola Droid Bionic is the first phone, which is having dual-core processor and 4G LTE radio. This statement is leading us to doubt whether or not the Samsung Galaxy S II is hitting the Verizon air waves in August with LTE connectivity under the hood.
We’ve already seen the images of the revamped Motorola Droid Bionic docked with two different docks, and Verizon has also announced the price info of the Droid Bionic on its DroidDoes website. Motorola Droid Bionic should be having Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread OS on the board, sporting a new BLUR UI, a bigger 4.5-inch qHD screen panel with 450 X 960 pixel of resolution, 1GHz dual-core processor, 1080p HD video recording capability with the help of its LED flash equipped 8 megapixels camera, laptop dock support, Netflix support, and a powerful 1750mAh battery.
Sanjay Jha has also confirmed that they are prepping to release “at least” 5 LTE-enabled products out by the end of the year. The exact specifics haven’t been provided by him, but he did say that there will be another LTE phone and 2 LTE tablets. AT&T is rumored to be bringing the Motorola Atrix 4G successor with 720p screen. We are not sure about the LTE connectivity of this beast.
