BlackBerry Jakarta Spotted at Benchmark Site Feature Dual-Core CPU


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.

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.
