BlackBerry Classic gets caught on camera

BlackBerry Classic

Following the release of the BlackBerry Passport, the canadian manufacturer has yet another device in their pipelines. However, unlike the BlackBerry Passport, which is the company's top shelf business-centric phone, the BlackBerry Classic is suited for long time BlackBerry users who are more interested in merging the old-school features like a trackpad and function keys, with the latest version of BlackBerry 10.

The BlackBerry Classic would mark the third new handset released under John Chen's leadership. The first on the new CEO's list was the affordable BlackBerry Z3, which was manufactured by Foxconn as a part of an BlackBerry has with the contract manufacturer. Foxconn designs, builds and stores these entry-level devices, while BlackBerry installs the software and handles marketing. These phones are made solely for emerging markets.

The BlackBerry Passport followed as the company's newest flagship. It featured a 1440 x 1440 pixel resolution, meant for viewing charts, websites, and reports. The long battery life allows the phone to stay powered throughout the business day. Chen has already committed BlackBerry to produce a sequel of the phone.

This leaves us with the BlackBerry Classic, which is expected to launch next month. The BlackBerry Classic is Chen's offering for the die-hard BlackBerry fan, who remembers the good old days when the word smartphone was synonymous with BlackBerry. 

The BlackBerry Classic is rumored to feature a 3.46 inch display with a 720 x 720 pixel resolution, 16GB of internal storage which can be expanded through microSD, an 8MP rear camera with a f/2.2 aperture, a 2MP front camera, a 2515mAh battery, and a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon MSM8960 (S4 Plus) processor with 2GB of RAM. The handset even brings back the trackpad and function keys.
