Unannounced BlackBerry smartphone spotted online


BlackBerry announced its partnership with the newly formed Indonesian venture firm, PT BB Merah Putih just a few months ago. The company collaborated with this firm for making a new smartphone which was assumed to be a midrange device and whose specifications we have been hearing in leaks since a long time. Now, photos of this new BlackBerry smartphone a.k.a. BBC100-01 have been spotted online, giving us a glimpse of this smartphone from its front and rear side.

As far as the specs of this smartphone are concerned, it is believed to feature a 5.5-inch 720p HD display. Under the hood, the device is said to run on a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 425 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is no doubt that this phone will run on Android 7.1 Nougat out-of-the-box, considering the fact that the latest version of Android is already available on the newly announced BlackBerry KeyOne.

In the imaging department, the BlackBerry BBC100-01 might feature a 13-megapixel rear facing camera, while at the front, it is believed to come with an 8-megapixel camera. In addition to this, the smartphone is expected to come with Dual SIM card capability and might have a 3000mAh battery. Considering BlackBerry’s previous track record, this unannounced BlackBerry BBC100-01 might also be the first smartphone to come with Dual SIM card support.

The smartphone received certification in Indonesia in December last year. However, until now, there has been neither any word regarding the official launch of the smartphone in Indonesia, nor any information regarding its global availability revealed yet.
