Motorola Droid Bionic Pictures Leak, 4.5-Inch Screen After All?

The much anticipated Motorola Droid Bionic is expected to be one of the first 4G LTE handsets with a dual-core processor. Now that we're getting close to its arrival, pictures of the device have begun surfacing. And not just one blurry shot, but a whole series of photos that clearly show off a complete revamp.

The leaked images obtained by DroidLife reveal that the new Droid Bionic has a more squarish design than the one shown back at CES, looking rather simlar to the Droid 3. It also appears to have a larger screen, which supports rumors that the handset now sports a 4.5-inch screen instead of a 4.3-inch screen.

The below image was tweaked by Androidandme to compare just the screens between the Droid Bionic and the Droid Charge. The screen on the Droid Bionic appears clearly larger than the 4.3-inch screen of the Droid Charge.

After several months of delays, the handset has finally been confirmed for a September launch, and a leaked internal Verizon document has it down for September 8. But with the Samsung Galaxy SII, also a dual-core 4G LTE phone, set to launch on Verizon in August, the Droid Bionic could see a lot of its potential customers snatched away.

However, if it does turn out to have a 4.5-inch screen, which will be larger than the SII, would that affect your decision if you were on the fence between the two phones?
