BlackBerry 10 Laguna Specs

With several months still left until the official launch of BlackBerry 10 devices, the first specs details have started to surface online.

The folks over at RapidBerry have been recently tipped on the CDMA version of BlackBerry London, which is expected to be released next year in the United States through Verizon Wireless. Dubbed BlackBerry Laguna, the smartphone will be powered by RIM’s latest BlackBerry 10 OS, and it will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 processor, though the CPU’s clock speed is still unknown. However, knowing that this particular processor is part of the Pro category of CPUs, we suspect that BlackBerry Laguna’s core will be clocked at 1.5 – 1.7 GHz. RIM plans to include other category of processors within its upcoming BlackBerry 10 devices, which seem to be sorted according to their power, so expect to have Play, Plus, Pro and Prime CPUs.

Furthermore, BlackBerry Laguna is said to boast a stunning 4.2-inch capacitive touchscreen display that supports 1280 x 768 pixels resolution and 355 DPI. On the inside, the smartphone will feature 1GB of RAM, 16GB flash, and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB). The device is rumored to carry an enhanced 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, which features autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 2-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls. When it comes to connectivity, BlackBerry Laguna offers a slew of options, including NFC (Near Field Communication), Wi-Fi, LTE, UMTS, Wi-Fi Direct, micro HDMI Out and DLNA.

There’s only one discrepancy between official info and the recently leaked specs. It appears that BlackBerry Laguna has been listed with Bluetooth 2.1 onboard, though the included Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 chipset features Bluetooth 4.0 support. Last but not least, the Laguna will drain energy from a 1800 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, which has yet to be rated by the manufacturer. Stay tuned for more updates on the matter.
