BlackBerry 10 Aristo specs leaked; A-Series model phone has 2GB of RAM and LTE on board

BlackBerry 10 Aristo specs leaked; A-Series model phone has 2GB of RAM and LTE on board
If the leaked specs that we've seen today on the BlackBerry 10 Aristo are correct, we can all say welcome back RIM. First, to refresh your memory, earlier Monday we passed along to you some specs for a BlackBerry 10 L-Series model said to be a full touchscreen phone called the BlackBerry Laguna. We're talking a 4.2 inch screen with the Qualcomm MSM8960 aboard, which is a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. It wasn't bad for a start because hours later, it was blown away by the specs for a BlackBerry A-Series model called the BlackBerry Aristo.

The BlackBerry Aristo appears to be RIM's flagship device

The BlackBerry Aristo appears to be RIM's flagship device

The BlackBerry Aristo has an OCTA Glass OLED 4.65 inch display with resolution of 720 x 1280. The OCTA part of the screen was recently developed by Samsung and allows the device to be the thinnest BlackBerry yet at 8.85mm thin. A quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm APQ8064 Krait processor sits under the hood with-get this-2 wonderful GB of RAM inside. Someone at RIM has been listening! 16GB of native storage can be pumped up by using the 16GB capacity hot swappable microSD slot.

The battery cannot be removed, but at 2800mAh, who'd want to, especially the way BlackBerry handsets usually last for a while on one charge. There will be an 8MP camera on back that captures video in 1080p at 30fps, and a 2MP one up front. The phone is also equipped with WiFi, microUSB, NFC, DLNA and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. 4 microphones are on board for noise reduction and there is a feature called Face Detect for phone calls. The unit also has LTE connectivity. Yes, we said LTE. And no, judging by the silhouette of the phone, this will not be one that features a physical BlackBerry Bold styled physical QWERTY keyboard.

The specs certainly do sound enticing and if RIM can do just as a good a job of listening when it comes to the design and build quality of the model, the sky could be the limit for BlackBerry 10. This is truly going to get some people excited.

But hold on, why would a Blackberry need 2 GB RAM??? I don't see any apps that will take up that much memory in a Blackberry... Come to think of it, haven't heard of any BB application store. Is there one?

For your info , when they showed BB10 they attracted many developers and plus this is probably a thing to help them make a comeback!!!

agreed, I'm quite excited for this actually.. If this evolves to be a fresh OS with those interesting gesture navigation, I think BB can make a comeback.. and iOS to comedown..

for starters the new BlackBerry OS known as BlackBerry 10 is a new platfrom that is QNX-base meaning its a unix-like OS..and you know that there's a lot of unix-like right? from apple's mac OS and even the linux are unix! BB10 will be great for RIM coz android devs dont need to rewrite their apps for the platform... all they need to do is just copy and paste! a lot of devs actually like the BB10 coz its so easy..

I wasn't expecting blackberry to bring quad-core and a pretty big battery, smart move by RIM.

It's too bad they will probably delay this bad boy to the point where the specs aren't cutting edge anymore...

i hope blackberry 10 has compability with android apps. would be perfect :) i would buy one.

actually it is! since the playbook can run android apps! but i dont think you'll need android apps... coz i think devs should just post their apps to BlackBerry! all they need to do it just copy and paste! they dont have to rewrite the whole apps!

"The specs certainly do sound enticing and if RIM can do just as a good a job of listening when it comes to the design and build quality of the model, the sky could be the limit for BlackBerry 10." The build quality is not in question here........the qustion that needs to be answered is, will their user interface deliver more stability and customization than what android offers? THAT IS THE QUESTION..........will their apps being on top of the game? those are the questions to be answered.........someone has finnally packed all the specs we been looking for in a size that "a lot" of people can adjust to, 4.6 inch phone! all they have to do is get their app store down, and their user interface completed and this can very well do better than the competition

This sounds pretty awesome. From the little snippets I've seen of the OS so far, it looks cool and a little refreshing, but it'll need apps to compete with any of the existing OS's. WP8 looks a little more promising. Also, any idea on when any of these devices will be released?

18. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

exactly........they will need to have apps available or at least somewhat close to what android offers...........not only that but a very stable and convenient UI..........thats all they need
