Except for KEYone We haven’t witnessed any smartphones launch from BlackBerry this year. In fact, KEYone is the only smartphone from BlackBerry that managed to create an intensive publicity. Even though the BlackBerry Krypton has obtained nearly all the essential certifications such as those from Bluetooth SIG, US FCC, and WiFi Alliance and a number of information related to its features has been uncovered as well, we haven’t seen any clear details on its design and style yet. Anyway, that situation changes now as several images of the smartphone were leaked. These leaked images concentrate on the flipside of the handset and give us a carbon finish look.
As you can see in these images it pays more attention to the back side panel of the purported BlackBerry Krypton. It seems that the handset keeps the conventional BlackBerry style with the carbon finish. The handset carries a jagged look to it with a circular camera segment at the top left corner of the handset. You will also find a dual-LED flash on the rear-side of the device. Unluckily, the front part of the handset has not been shown. When analyzing the active speculations, it will be an entirely touch-based device . If this is true we might not see the iconic BlackBerry keyboard set on it.
When looking at the features, the BlackBerry Krypton is predicted to include 4GB of RAM, Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 or 626 chipset, and a Full HD display touchscreen. The forthcoming BlackBerry handset may also bring along a massive battery. The battery unit is believed to endure more than 26 hours on a single charge with “mixed use”. Anyway, if this information is valid, the battery should really survive up to a couple of days of normal usage. On top of that, the handset is speculated to be first BlackBerry device to have IP67 rated dust and water resistant certification. BlackBerry Krypton is expected to operate on Android Operating System instead of BlackBerry’s own mobile operating system.
