BlackBerry’s latest offering, the BlackBerry Leap has been announced in India. The device is most likely to be seen as the successor of sorts of the BlackBerry Z5 which was the first attempt of the Canadian giants of coming up with a budget BlackBerry smartphone running BB 10. However, with relatively muted success, both for the Z5 as well as the Q5, there is a lot that is riding on the BlackBerry Leap especially as the time is running out for BlackBerry if it needs to ensure that it is not spoken of as a brand that existed once upon a time and has fallen away in the wake of the success that iOS and Android devices have enjoyed.
In terms of specifications the device features a 5 inch display and brings a 720 P resolution to the table. You get a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 SoC with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal memory. The device runs BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 out of the box.
The rear camera of the device is an 8 MP unit while the front snapper is a 2 MP unit. The phone is slightly heavy as it weighs around 170 grams and will be available in Black color. The price of the phone has not been revealed yet though it is expected to come in the market around the Rs 23,000 mark. The BlackBerry Leap will be available both online and offline for purchase post its launch.
