With Research In Motion now back in the news for its products rather than its bank balance, the time is nigh for good old-fashioned leaks to start divulging the details of what the company may be bringing to market. Following last week’s hands on with the new BlackBerry 10 OS, we now we have an alleged specs table of an ‘L-Series’ device dubbed Laguna.
(opens in new tab)As is shown in the leaked table published by Rapid Berry (opens in new tab) below, the BlackBerry 10 Laguna will apparently be powered by the MSM8960 chip of Qualcomm’s renowned SnapDragon line, be 4G LTE and NFC enabled, have a 4.2in display with an impressive 1280x768 resolution at 355dpi, a 8-megapixel camera recording in 1080p, a removable 1800mAH battery, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage and a MicroSD card slot.
In terms of form factor the device will be 9mm thick, 130mm tall, and 65.6mm wide –which Rapid Berry points out is just a touch narrower than the 66mm-wide BlackBerry Bold 99XX.
Expect to hear much more from RIM over the coming months, as the Canadian firm will be going all out to thrust its BlackBerry 10 platform under our noses, given the consensus that the company’s future hinges on its success. CEO Thorstein Heins has been bullish ahead of the launch, last week talking up the fighting spirit at the company.
