The Motorola Droid Bionic does not seem to be able to receive its long overdue Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system update, and it seems that the update has certainly taken its own sweet time to be released, considering how a far more basic smartphone with lower end hardware specifications have beaten the Motorola Droid Bionic to the punch. Just recently, Sprint released the Kyocera Rise that will carry a single core processor, some RAM, a tiny display, and a release date that makes it just about a year younger compared to the Motorola Droid Bionic.
The Kyocera Rise itself will receive Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the box, putting the Motorola Droid Bionic to shame in terms of an operating system update. Do you think that this is one of the more irritating examples of Android fragmentation? It is rather pathetic to see how higher end devices like the HTC ThunderBolt and Motorola Droid Bionic lagging behind other lower end smartphones when it comes to the operating system version. Ah well, hopefully all’s well that ends well, and like the proverb says, good things always come to those who wait.
Motorola Droid Turbo 2 Back Cases Leaked
It looks like there is more to the Motorola Droid Turbo 2 that we can look at this time around, where the smartphone is set to be the very first Droid-branded smartphone that is set to be made available to the masses via Moto Maker. Just in case you were wondering, Moto Maker happens to be Motorola’s very own online hardware customization service. The newly leaked image points to a variety of back covers – perhaps even all of them, where it seems that some are made out of leather, others carrying the possibility of a kevlar case, or perhaps some kind of fabric.
As for the hardware specifications, the Droid Turbo 2 is tipped to arrive with a “shatterproof” QHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, and a generous 3,760 mAh battery. Can’t wait for October 27th for the official unveiling!
Motorola Bounce Said To Be ‘Shatterproof’
Fancy an indestructible phone? That sounds like something right up the Impossible Mission Force’s alley, as those are the folks who are involved in high level espionage and live a life that hangs on the edge, getting into all sorts of scrapes and what not. Having said that, here is a little bit of something that might suit them – the Motorola Bounce, which is also known as the X Force in certain circles.
Well, apparently, it has been said to come with a “shatterproof” build, which can be rather difficult to believe in the first place, but who knows? The Motorola Bounce is also said to arrive with a 5.43” QHD display, a Qualcomm MSM8994 chipset, a choice of either 32GB or 64GB of internal memory, 3GB of RAM, a 21MP shooter at the back with a 5MP camera in front, and a 3,760mAh battery. Ah well, we will just have to wait for it to be revealed to know more.
3rd Generation Moto G Spotted With 2GB RAM
It looks like the third generation Moto G from Motorola is about to be on the receiving end of 2GB RAM, as opposed to questions of whether it will come with just 1GB RAM or not. A posting on Indian export-import site Zauba has shown that 190 units of the upcoming third generation Moto G model were sent from Hong Kong to India for testing purposes, with half the number of those being black, while the remaining number were white in color.
Other than having listed down 2GB RAM, it also listed 8GB of internal memory, where each model was valued at $240 a pop. A couple more handsets shipped to India for testing were listed at a far lower value. All in all, we will simply have to wait for the official reveal as to ascertain whether this particular generation of the Moto G will come with 1GB RAM or double that amount this coming July 28th as Motorola holds an event in New York which will most probably tell all by then.
