BlackBerry A10 to be launched by Verizon, specs leaked
Expected to be released later this year as the successor to the BlackBerry Z10, the BlackBerry A10 has appeared in a leaked photo last week, and now a full list of specs has been also revealed.
As already mentioned, the A10 sports a 5 inch display, so it’s going to be the largest BlackBerry smartphone ever. Unlike most flagship Android handsets available now, the new BlackBerry won’t have a Full HD display, but only an HD (1280 x 720) one. At 5 inches, that means 295ppi – which isn’t bad, but it’s a far cry from the 441 ppi density the Galaxy S4 screen offers, or the 469 ppi density on the display of HTC’s One.
Here’s what else we should expect from the BlackBerry A10 (at least according to the slide seen below): BlackBerry OS 10.2, LTE / CDMA / HSPA+, NFC, Wi-Fi: 802.11 a/b/g/n, DLNA, 8MP rear camera with flash, 2MP front-facing camera, dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 2,800 mAh battery.
The A10 measures 140.7 x 72 x 9.4mm. The slide reveals that the Verizon version will be 0.2mm thicker. So, yes, it looks like the handset will be released by Verizon at some point.
We’ve previously heard that Sprint would start selling the A10 in November. If that’s the case, I assume Verizon will do it at about the same time.
Until then, the specs seen above might change. We’ll let you know if that’s the case.
