It looks like BlackBerry is confident to change its fate in the smartphone market this year. The rumors surrounding the company's upcoming device called the Jakarta has now been spotted online. The device, in fact, was seen at the benchmark site which also revealed few of the information about the device.
The struggling Canadian smartphone maker which was quite popular couple of years ago now might change its direction altogether. The Jakarta is reportedly said to be a considerably low range smartphone. Earlier the company's high-end models were quite unsuccessful when it came to impressing its fans. However, this device would still run on the company's latest BB10 platform.
Moreover, this particular leak, which comes from Geekbench benchmark site has revealed some alleged specs of the BlackBerry Jakarta. It is quite prominently seen that it will be running on BlackBerry 10.2.1.569 OS. While there would be a dual-core 1.19GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8230 CPU with the Adreno 305 GPU powering the device. Also a gracious 1.5GB of RAM will be supporting the device.
Strangely as rumors have it, the brand popular for its age-old QWERTY keypad handsets, might take the hooks off from the physical keypad, especially with this particular phone. On the other hand, contrary to the same rumor, BlackBerry CEO John Chen reportedly said that most of the new handsets coming from the manufacturer will feature a physical QWERTY keyboard.
Also it should be noted that the Jakarta smartphone could be designed and manufactured by Foxconn while BlackBerry's softwares could be running in its system.
Sadly, the company has not spoken about the device formally as of now. However, other rumors suggest that BlackBerry is also working on its high-end model which will be powered by a 64 bit octa-core processor.
