We saw the first alleged picture of the upcoming BlackBerry A10 just a few days ago, and now we’re seeing a full rundown of the specs thanks to a leaked internal memo from the company itself. According to the cheat sheet for the phone – first posted to the CrackBerry forums – the BlackBerry A10 will bump the screen size to 5-inches, a jump from the 4.2-inch display of the BlackBerry Z10.
There’s a nice render of the phone itself too, confirming the curvy sides and edges – a nice change from the harsh edges of the Z10. Specifications are said to include a 5-inch 1280×720 AMOLED display, a dual-core Qualcomm processor clocked at 1.7Ghz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for an additional 64GB, an 8-megapixel camera, LTE connectivity, and a 2,800mAh battery.
It looks like the phone will ship with BlackBerry OS 10.2 as well, with recent leaks showing that the company is hard at work behind the scenes trying to add new features to the mobile operating system. Still, the handset itself won’t exactly be svelte, reportedly measuring 9.4mm thick. Ports include microUSB and microHDMI, with NFC also included onboard.
A previous report suggested that BlackBerry is readying the A10 for release later in the year, replacing the Z10 to become the flagship handset for the company. The Z10 will become a mid-range BlackBerry offering, with other handsets such as the Q5 and Q10 plugging price gaps at other points in the market.
