We have long been talking about long, lying above BlackBerry Classic, a new model of smartphone that should be about to be presented. We have been in the hands of one of the bosses of the company, but also in multiple filtered images and several rumors which indicate a release for the month of November.
Classic will be a reincarnation of the ‘Bold’ of life keeping his spirit in the form of that physical QWERTY keyboard, optical trackpad included, with some minor changes to adapt to the new times. For example the display will move to be square, as the Q10, and also the aesthetic line adopts more straight shapes that the Bold old.
In relation to the technical characteristics of the BlackBerry Classic, recent rumors suggest that it will incorporate a 3.5 inch touch screen (720 x 720 pixels, 291 ppp with this size) along with a processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 (2xKrait to 1.5 GHz., 225 Adreno GPU), 2 GB of RAM and the latest Blackberry OS, 10.3, pre-installed from factory. SoC is rather old (dating back to 2012 and is, interestingly, the same as the Z10, Q10, or the Lumia 820 and 920 or Samsung Galaxy S3, among others) but it could be they were of a prototype, and then the final model included some more modern processor.
Whatever the final specifications, BlackBerry Classic is a highly anticipated model so much for the Blackberry user community as by the market. A return to key features that a few years ago positioned the company as one of the most important in the sector. The recently submitted Passport would be its most pointer model, with the Classic how cheaper covering the range media and, predictably, other models as the Q5 as input products, at a cost below 200 euros.
