BlackBerry Torch 2 and BlackBerry Curve Apollo: More BB OS 6.1 and NFC action

Some more leaked BlackBerry shots and specs have emerged from the Internet Rumour Mill. This time its the BlackBerry Torch 2 and the BlackBerry Curve Apollo, which look every inch follow ups to last year’s Torch and Curve 3G 9300 phones, respectively.

The leaked specs, again courtesy of Boy Genius Report, say that both of these will launch with the new BlackBerry OS 6.1 and will feature NFC chips, like the BlackBerry Dakota we saw yesterday.

The BlackBerry Torch 2 reportedly comes with a 1.2Ghz processor, 8GB of storage and a 5-megapixel camera with flash. As the image shows, it appears to follow the same touchscreen-plus-Qwerty format of the original Torch.

The BlackBerry Curve Apollo opts for a more traditional BlackBerry format, and looks very much like a mid-range feature phone. Nevertheless it still packs a 5-megapixel camera with a flash, and has Wi-Fi and GPS. The 800MHz processor suggests it won’t be as quick off the mark as the Torch 2 though.

BGR reckons that the BlackBerry Torch 2 will be sold on US networks in autumn this year; we’d assume then that the UK release date would be similar. No mention on a release date for the Curve Apollo yet.
