BlackBerry A10: First proper hands-on surfaces
At this point, you probably thought of that leaked 30-second, no sound video that first appeared and gave us a sneak peek at the Canadian manufacturer's upcoming flagship. This time around, though, we have a more of an in-depth sneak peek. We found the device visually appealing, though its thick line won't win it any prizes. Considering the specs on competing flagships, the BlackBerry A10 will launch with some outdated hardware. Sure, not all OSes are the resource-hog that Android is, but a 720p display on a 5-inch device seems like a gross oversight.
Alas, we digress. These are, of course, unofficial, but Tinhte has given us a pretty exhaustive list of the specs found on the BlackBerry A10.
- Runs BlackBerry OS 10.2
- A dual-core Snapdragon S4 Plus clocked at 1.7GHz
- Adreno 225 GPU
- A 5-inch 720p AMOLED display
- An 8MP rear camera with an LED Flash, up front is a 2MP snapper
- 2GB of RAM
- Battery is 2800mAh, non-removable
- 16GB on-board storage, microSD-expandable
- Not the slimmest smartphone out there – 9.4mm thick
- NFC, Micro HDMI are both available
The video is in Viatnamese, but we have reached out to Tinhte asking them if they could provide captions. We'll update you once, and if, such become available.
