More new rumors to feast you eyes on today, and it comes from BlackBerry. According to reports, the Canadian handset maker could be in line to announce a brand new device along with the BlackBerry Passport.
While rumors are rife related to the new-age BlackBerry devices that are set to arrive before the end of the year, BlackBerry OS says that the device "isn't Passport or Classic related." And likewise, a host of reports have cropped up related to the new unknown device.
There are claims making rounds on the web currently saying that BlackBerry could introduce a non-Playbook tablet, a wearable watch, or even a certain Blackberry Manitoba alongside the new Passport handset.
The upcoming BlackBerry Manitoba is said to be "the spiritual successor of the Z30," and this means it will be a full-touch smartphone that will come without a physical QWERTY keyboard. Also in line is another BlackBerry Victoria.
Coming back to the BlackBerry Manitoba, the handset could be launched as BlackBerry Z3 LTE. In fact, the Canadian company is also supposed to make it available for purchase by the end of this year.
Going through the rumored specs of the handset, the BlackBerry Manitoba is said to have the same specs as the Z30, although it will have Z3's design and form factor. The handset could also be quipped with a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Pro Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory.
"It will also sport a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen display of unknown resolution and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 64GB). No other details on the BlackBerry Manitoba have been leaked yet, but if this is the smartphone the Canadian company plans to announce along with the Passport, it doesn't seem to be such a big deal," a Softpedia report states.
While it remains to be seen if the company indeed unveils the brand new Manitoba handset alongside Passport, more details are expected to arrive shortly. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
