BlackBerry Hamburg specs revealed from GFXBench benchmark test

53
One of two Android powered handsets expected to be released by BlackBerry this year, the BlackBerry Hamburg has been put through the GFXBench benchmark test. With the latter, we now know to expect the Hamburg (just a code name) to feature a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution. Under the hood, the Hamburg sports the Snapdragon 615 chipset which carries an octa-core 1.5GHz CPU, and the Adreno 405 GPU.

3GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. A 12MP camera adorns the back of the phone, while a 7MP (8MP perhaps?) front-facing camera is at the ready to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Android 6.0.1 is pre-installed.

According to Dylan Habkirk, who is the creator of a pair of concept models for the Hamburg and the BlackBerry Rome, the Hamburg resembles the BlackBerry Z30. The BlackBerry Rome carries a physical QWERTY while the Hamburg is all-touch. Habkirk says that the latter will be the first of the two to be released.

Last November, BlackBerry launched its first Android powered handset, the BlackBerry Priv. Thanks to a high price and tough competition in the market for high-end Android phones, Priv sales have been considered disappointing. CEO John Chen acknowledged pricing the Priv too high, and expects the new models to land in the $300 to $400 price range.
