BlackBerry is expected to launch several new Android phones this year, including a mid-range model code-named “Hamburg,” which is expected to sell for under $400 and have a touchscreen display but no physical keyboard.
The FCC documents don’t provide many details about the phone, other than the fact that it seems to have a 2,610 mAh battery and that the phone is manufacturer by TCL, the same company behind Alcatel smartphones.
If the GFXBench listing is accurate, here’s what else we can expect:
- 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor
- Adreno 405 graphics
- 3GB RAM
- 16GB storage
- 12MP rear camera and 8MP front camera
- Android 6.0.1
The rear camera is said to support 4K video recording and HDR photography, while the front-facing camera can shoot 1080p video.
It’s likely that the Hamburg phone will be sold under a different brand name if and when it comes to market. It’s also likely that this will be just one of a number of Android phones from BlackBerry this year. Other models are expected to feature more powerful processors, higher-resolution displays, and/or physical keyboards.
Or you could just pick up last year’s BlackBerry Priv. While the phone’s $699 price tag put it out of reach for some potential customers at launch, these days you can often find it on sale for half that price.
