Last month, BlackBerry began selling the BlackBerry Passport - its most ambitious smartphone to date. With the response from consumers have been pretty great lately, BlackBerry is all set to launch the BlackBerry Classic in December.
The BlackBerry Classic is no more a mysterious handset, although its release date has been kept under tight wraps. Well according to BlackBerry's CEO John Chen, the BlackBerry Classic will be launching in December 2014. This was confirmed by the CEO who spoke at the MIT Enterprise Forum which was recently held in Hong Kong.
BlackBerry Classic, as the name suggests, will be targeted at the company's core users. The phone is expected to reintroduce the trackpad, a feature missing from BlackBerry's updated phone, including the much-hyped BlackBerry Passport.
The "BlackBerry Classic" was first unveiled at this year's Mobile World Congress (MWC). The device previously known as the "BlackBerry Q20", however it later renamed, because of its traditional keyboard and Bold-like look.
For many, the BlackBerry Classic is still a mystery. For instance, the spec sheet is not known yet. If rumors are to be believed, the BlackBerry Classic will flaunt a square 3.46-inch TFT display with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels (294ppi), a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of native storage, a microSD card slot, and a non-removable 2,515mAh battery.
In the imaging department, it may have an 8MP rear-facing camera. Other connectivity options include: 4G LTE/3G, Wi-Fi, Miracast, NFC, a nano-SIM slot, and GPS.
The BlackBerry Classic, which is touted to be a mid-end business phone, will be manufactured by Foxconn.
