Purported specs of the BlackBerry Porsche P'9983 leak once again

Alleged specs of the BlackBerry Porsche P'9983 leak once again
Last week, we heard that BlackBerry might not launch an all-touch smartphone in the higher segment in the following months, because the company will be focusing on devices that fall in four different categories. One of these is the “prestige” category, in which the maker might compete with the premium BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983. We were already treated to a chunk of partial purported hardware specs, but thanks to a pretty fresh leak, we can now form a clearer picture of its spec sheet.

The latest dose of rumors endow the BlackBerry Porsche Design P'9983 with a 3.1” OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels (square-shaped display, similar to the one of the Passport), a dual-core, 1.5GHz SoC of unknown make, 2GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. The rear camera will be an 8MP one and will come with autofocus, as well as some sort of image stabilization; a 2MP front-facing snapper also completes the picture. The rear of the premium device will house a 2,100mAh battery. As far as connectivity is regarded, the Porsche Design P'9983 will be an LTE-enabled device and will support several bands (2,4,5,17). Unsurprisingly, the OS of choice will be BB OS 10.3.

The back of the Porsche Design P'9983 will be made of weaved glass, similar to the one in the BlackBerry Q10 and the Z30, while the device itself, the rear logo, and the side buttons will be made from stainless steel. Sapphire glass might also make an appearance on BlackBerry's prestige device, as it's tipped to be covering and protecting the rear camera's lens. Sounds premium enough to us. The P'9983 is also tipped to arrive alongside the BlackBerry Passport this September, and it will surely flaunt a hefty price tag.
