The leak comes to us via TechRadar who have obtained the RIM training document. The site says, “TechRadar can exclusively reveal the specifications of the first fully touchscreen BlackBerry 10 smartphone after we got hold of some official Research In Motion (RIM) documentation.
“The slides we’ve seen are part of RIM’s training document for its new BB 10 operating system aimed at educating sales reps on the system.
“One of the slides is titled “specifications of the BlackBerry 10 L-Series” and lists various specifications of the handset including a 4.2-inch, 1280×768 HD display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and an 1,800mAh battery.”
Speaking about the handset’s spec sheet, the site reveals, “A front-facing 2MP lens will offer users a 2x digital zoom and 720p video recording – useful for video calls and the odd vanity check, while round the back the Z10 is equipped with an 8MP snapper with single LED flash, auto focus, 1080p video recording and 5x digital zoom.
“RIM has always offered a decent array of connectivity options on its smartphones and the L-Series is no different packing Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS,4G and NFC – a few boxes ticked.”
Apparently, there will be four versions of the new smartphone. The site says, “If all that wasn’t enough it appears that the L-Series will arrive in four different guises around the world to cope with the various network frequencies.
“The BlackBerry London will be the only non-4G variant with support for 21Mbps HSPA+, while the BlackBerry Laguna, BlackBerry Lisbon and BlackBerry Liverpool will all feature LTE technology.”
RIM is expected to lift the lid on Blackberry 10 and handsets running the new operating system on the 30th of January. So stay tuned.
