Alleged specs and images of the rumored BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 leak

Alleged specs and images of the rumored BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 leak
Earlier today, we told you that BlackBerry seemingly has no high-end all-touch device in the pipeline for 2014, but might release a total of four pretty different devices by the end of the year. One of them could be the QWERTY-enabled top-shelf BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983, another addition to BlackBerry's ultra-expensive line of premium devices, such as the Porsche Design P'9981 and P'9982.

Rumor has it that the Porsche Design P'9983, which is also known as “Khan”, will pack some modest hardware specs. The heart of the device will be a dual-core SoC, clocked at 1.7GHz. This is quite subpar as per today's standards, but at least the Khan might pack some 3GB of RAM – a true multi-tasking behemoth.

The touchscreen of the device will be a 3.5-inch one, while the available on-board storage is tipped to be 64GB. Unlike the soon-to-be unveiled BlackBerry Passport, rumors don't endow the Porsche Design P'9983 with a trackpad-like QWERTY keyboard. On the contrary, the top-end BlackBerry will sport a more traditional, regular physical one.

The “standard” version of the P'9983 is said to come in matte black and could flaunt a hefty $2,000 price tag. Its target market? The “affluent and wealthy”, apparently. There is no additional information about a possible release date, but the previously-leaked roadmap suggests that this would happen by the end of 2014. 

Check out the images of the "Khan" in the gallery below and feel free to share any thoughts you might have!
