New BlackBerry Leap Has The Following Specifications

BlackBerry unveiled a new smartphone to the world during the 2015 Mobile World Congress (MWC) which started on 2nd March and will end 5th of March. BlackBerry is doing fairly well in the smartphone industry nut its still a long way from becoming the BlackBerry it used to be 10 years ago.

The new device unveiled yesterday is known as BlackBerry Leap and even though the name does gather an amount of dislike, the smartphone in itself is decent and well built. According to BlackBerry it is a medium end phone will high-end quality.

The BlackBerry Leap has a 5 inch IPS LCD display sporting a 720 x 1080 pixel in resolution bringing it to approximately 260PPI. The Leap is a full touchscreen device with a thickness of 9.5mm making fairly thicker than some more recent flagship smartphone out there.

The BlackBerry Leap has a dual core Qualcomm MSM 8960 1.5 GHz processor clocked at 1.5GHz and a 1GB RAM, Furthermore, the internal memory is 8GB and has a SD card slot that supports up to 128GB memory card.

It comes with the latest BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 to keep things going and a non-removable 2800mAh battery to make sure that the phone takes you through the day on a standard usage. The rear camera for the Leap is 8.0 mega pixel with LED flash light while the front camera is 2.0 mega pixel to allow for those video calls and selfies.

According to Blackberry, the device will be sold for $275 off contract. Personally I believe that the price for this smartphone is too high especially seeing that the price for BlackBerry Z30 is currently $300 with better specs that the Leap.
