New BlackBerry Device Specs Leak Online

Ahead of the rumoured January launch of RIM’s new mobile platform details of what appears to be a high-spec BlackBerry handset have leaked online.

BlackBerry-centric blog RapidBerry published an image that appears to show an internal RIM document which details specs of what could be a new flagship to showcase the upcoming BB10 operating system.

The device in question is shown to feature a quad-core, 1.5GHz processor, 2GB RAM, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording at 30fps, and a 2800mAh battery.

Also listed is a new technology known as OCTA which incorporates touch sensors directly into an AMOLED display and reduces the need for an extra layer on the phone’s screen.

If the specs turn out to be genuine then RIM could well have a handset lined-up that would, on paper, rival the best devices currently available.

In the run-up to the release of RIM’s new OS, rumours about what the company will produce are beginning to circulate. Last week, what appeared to be an internal company video showing two BB10 handsets emerged online, with the clip depicting both a full touchscreen device and one with a physical QWERTY keypad.

Thorsten Heins, CEO of the Canadian manufacturer, has previously confirmed that his company has two devices lined-up for the launch of BB10.
