Last year BlackBerry announced the launch of the BlackBerry Classic Smartphone which features a touchscreen, a physical full QWERTY keyboard and a touch trackpad. Since the announcement, the BlackBerry Classic is already available on some markets and is expected to hit shelves in India on January 15th.
As far as specifications goes, the Classic comes equipped with a 3.5-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 720 by 720 pixels, it’s powered by a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage plus a microSD card slot for expansion on storage.
The smartphone also gets dual cameras; an 8MP camera on the rear and a 2MP camera on the front for selfies and video calling. It also supports WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, the device runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 out of the box and also gets a 2,515 mAh battery.
The company has sent out press invites to the media which says, “Join us to witness the unveiling of the new BlackBerry 10 [Serious Mobility for Serious Business].” The invite doesn’t say anything about the BlackBerry Classic, but a BB10 powered smartphone is definitely inbound.
