Leak uncovers a 1.2GHz processor powering the upcoming BlackBerry Torch 2
However, looking past the surface and deeper into its hardware, there's something beating much faster under the hood that's going to supply the handset some much needed processing power. In fact, the smartphone will be packing on a serious 1.2GHz processor with hardware acceleration to really make it tangle with the other big guns in the industry.
Moreover, the leak on the handset provides a treasure trove of hardware specs it'll be flaunting – like a 3.2” VGA touchscreen, 8GB of internal storage, 512MB RAM, NFC, GPS, 5-megapixel camera with flash, Bluetooth 2.1, 1,300 mAh battery, magnetometer, and an accelerometer.
Between this and the BlackBerry Dakota, we're sure that there are going to be plenty of happy BlackBerry users out there. However, it's also worth noting that the handset is believed to make it debut some time during Q3 – which is still far off in the distance.

Q3? We will have phones twice as powerful as this by that time. Always staying behind the curve, RIM.

Why does it need that much processor speed? That's like putting a Pentium quad-core processor in my Super Nintendo!

Without front-facing camera and touchscreen, the Blackberry will soon die. I've been using Blackberry for ages, but may switch anytime soon if RIM doesn't come out with a front-facing camera and other features you can find on the iPhone 4, HTC EVO, Samsung Epic 4G, T-Mobile MyTouch 4G, etc. Why is RIM suddenly so far behind?
