BlackBerry releases official video showing off the new BlackBerry Leap
Earlier this month, the BlackBerry Leap was introduced. This is a handset with a 5-inch screen offering a resolution of 720 x 1280. A dated dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 225 GPU handling graphics. 2GB of RAM is inside along with 16GB of native storage. Those who need additional memory can turn to the 128GB microSD slot on board. The back and front-facing cameras weigh in at 8MP and 2MP, respectively and a 2800mAh battery keeps the lights on for up to 25 hours. BlackBerry 10.3.1 is pre-installed to keep you "secure and productive."

This is certainly not a new high-end model, and BlackBerry has produced a video showing off the features of the handset. The unit offers the latest and greatest build of BlackBerry 10. BlackBerry Assistant is included as is the BlackBerry Blend app that allows you to view the content of your phone on a PC. The BlackBerry Leap is expected to be launched as soon as next month, priced at roughly $200 unlocked.

For those waiting for BlackBerry's next flagship model, there is talk about a new device being prepped with hideable QWERTY keys. But this model could still be quite a ways down the road. If you want to see something that is official and will soon be launched, check out the BlackBerry Leap by clicking on the video below.
