Blackberry has been staying dormant in the smartphone industry for a while now. The new reports confirm that the company is working on a new device. The device has passed through online benchmarking website GeekBench today. The appearance of the device on GeekBench has hinted about the basic specifications of the device.
The handset is rumored to be launched on the 7th of June along with the regular variant Blackberry KEY2. The company had officially announced the launch event on its Twitter handle. We expect that this would be another variant of the KEY2. The BlackBerry KEY2 will come with a physical QWERTY keypad powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage and dual cameras.
According to GeekBench, the model number of the device is BBG100-1. It scored a single-core score of 698 and a multi-core score of 3656. These scores are pretty much average which confirms that the device will not be a flagship offering. The handset will be powered by Snapdragon 450 processor clocked at a base frequency of 1.8 GHz. As we all know, this is an octa-core processor. It will be coupled with 4 GB of RAM.
If the device turns out to be the lite version of the Blackberry KEY2, then it is more probable that it would feature the QWERTY keypad as seen on the KEY2. The presence of the dual camera is doubtful. The specifications and the model number hint that the device might be a downgraded version of the Blackberry KEY2. This is not confirmed at the moment.
The smartphone will run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The GPU used in the device is Adreno 506. T We’ll get to know more about the device once further leaks happen or the company decides to tease the device before launching in the market.
