White BlackBerry Classic expected to accompany the black version

BlackBerry is almost ready to launch a new smartphone that’s made to attract fans of the company’s older handsets - you know, the QWERTY-equipped Bold and Curve models. Called BlackBerry Classic, the new device has been available to pre-order in the US and Canada since last month, and is expected to start shipping next week, on December 17.

Right now, BlackBerry is listing only a black version of the smartphone on its official website. However, N4BB revealed a render (embedded on the left) that's showing a white variant of it - though we don’t know if this will be released at the same time with the black model. In any case, the white BlackBerry Classic should have the same price: $449, unlocked.

Besides a full QWERTY keyboard, the BlackBerry Classic features a square 3.5-inch screen with 720 x 720 pixels, LTE connectivity, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, a dual-core Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. The handset also includes a 2515 mAh battery, and runs the latest BlackBery 10 OS. We’ll let you know more about the new ‘Berry once it’s officially released.

Y'all have been trolled by the best. GreenZone was as sarcastic as he could be but you morons are too stupid to have seen that. That's just rich, trolls baited and hooked by another troll. Christmas came early.

They got trolled hard! Christmas has indeed come early. Too busy trolling to see that they've been trolled by one of their own.

There is nothing wrong with irellemot, he explain to us why this classic is a fake, and not good. He has an eagle eyes.
