BlackBerry Classic Specs SPOTTED as Release Date is Getting Closer
BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen, has previously confirmed that the smartphone will be launched this year, along with the somewhat ugly BlackBerry Passport, but the pecs sheet of the two upcoming devices wasn’t disclosed.
However, the guys from N4BB have just spotted the smartphone’s benchmark scores and some of its specs in Geekbench Browser’s database. If these results are anything to go by, the BlackBerry Classic will have the following tech specs: a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and 2GB of RAM.
Indeed, these seem to be the same specs as the BlackBerry Z10, but the BlackBerry Classic looks to have obtained a better score than the former. The BlackBerry Z10 has been listed with a score of 453, and the Classic got 500 points in Geekbench Browser benchmark. This could be due to software improvements found in the Classic’s OS 10.3.1.317 which the Z10 doesn’t have yet.
The BlackBerry Classic is said to be the symbolic successor of the Q10, which means it will pack a full QWERTY keyboard. Its release is said to take place sometime in November, so all of you QWERTY-lovers out there should get prepared.
BlackBerry tries what it can do in order to reclaim its lost fame and recently it has engaged itself into an open war against newcomer Blackphone, who says to be making the world’s most secure and privacy-focused smartphone.
