Evan Blass who is the most popular tipster when it comes to revealing details about new "unreleased" smartphones had sent out a tweet back in June which stated that BlackBerry had plans to launch two new handsets in the market. Besides, it was also mentioned that the two phones carried the code names Juno and Krypton.
But that was the last we heard about the handsets. While many days have passed, we have come across a new development. Well, a BlackBerry phone with the model number BBD100-1 has just been granted its Bluetooth certification from the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group).
The listing provides just a few details about the new device but we are expecting BBD100-1 to be another handset in the DTEK line up. And why we say this, well, the UAprof found in June hints that this could be a follow-up device to the DTEK series based on the rumored specs.
And the rumors have suggested that BBD100-1 will be powered by the Snapdragon 625 or Snapdragon 626 chipset. The handset will feature a display with 1080 x 1920 (FHD) resolution. Further, the smartphone will likely be equipped with 4GB of RAM.
Apart from the rumors, the certification from the Bluetooth SIG reveals that the model will come with Bluetooth 4.2 and that the device runs on software version AAN469. And the certification also mentions that TCL is the manufacturer of the phone under a license procured from BlackBerry.
All in all, while the certification does not actually confirm what this device is, it is still going through all the right procedures towards the final release. But again, as of now, the company has not given any official word on this device or when can we expect to see it in the market.
Bluetooth certification is now done but the company could still take some more time before making this new BlackBerry handset official. It could be some time around October, according to some reports.
