After the launch of the Blackberry Passport, Blackberry seemsto be busy brewing the a midranger without physical keys present in it, dubbed as Blackberry Rio. According to certain images which potray the new smartphone, it looks a bit alike the company's entry level Z3 handset. Rumors claim that it has received a spec buff and it will be launched in the mid range territory.
The Rio is expected to pack a 5", 720p display, 8 MP / 2 MP camera combo, a 1.5 Ghz Dual-Core SnapDragon S4 SoC, 2 GB of RAM, a 2,800 mAh battery, and 16 GB of expandable internal storage. The handset is expected to launch around February 2015 with a price-tag of around $300 (Rs 19,062 approx).
Going down the rumor pipe this doesn't look like a handset that's going to have its feet firmly planted in the 2015 midrange arena, especially now that phones are making the switch to 64-bit, quad- or octa-core processors.
Though BlackBerry runs its own proprietary software, which may or may not be optimized accordingly. The hardware information is not yet confirmed and we shall recieve more information on Blackberry's flagship phone soon.
