The Canadian tech giant BlackBerry CEO announced that they will be releasing two mid-ranger smartphones this year and both of them will be running on Android OS. One of the devices which is expected to be released later this year will be the BlackBerry Hamburg. The device is recently passed through GFX Benchmark listing which gives us a clear picture what we can expect from upcoming Hamburg.
The Hamburg will be featuring a 5.2 inches display with full HD screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. The Qualcomm’s slightly slower Octa core Snapdragon 615 Soc will be powering the device with a clocking speed of 1.5GHz and Adreno 405 for GPU. The Soc will be accompanied by 3GB of RAM and base model with 16GB of internal storage.
The camera mounted on the rear side of the device will be 12MP sensor whereas the front facing camera will be of 7MP sensor. It looks like the front facing camera will be selfie-centric. The Android latest Marshmallow 6.0.1 will be pre-installed as OS.
One of the concept renderers of upcoming BlackBerry Hamburg Dylan Habkirk stated that device looks like company’s Z30 smartphone. This won’t be featuring the QWERTY keypad but instead will be all touch display. Habkirk further stated, the Hamburg will be the first mid-ranger from BlackBerry this year.
Last year BlackBerry Priv was the only smartphone released by the company in 2015, the device was unveiled in the fourth quarter in November. The high price tag and mid-range specs didn’t allow the device to flourish like the company was expecting. The BlackBerry CEO John Chen also admitted that price tag of Priv was too high that’s why they will be unveiling mid-range smartphones this year in the price range of $300 to $400.
