Say hello to BlackBerry’s next Android-powered smartphone. The company hasn’t officially introduced the BlackBerry Neon to the world yet, but it looks like someone hit the publish page on the BlackBerry website a bit early.
Here’s what we know about the upcoming BlackBerry Neon so far.
The phone, which has the model number DTEK50, features a 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display with 424 pixels per inch, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core ARM COrtex-A53 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage plus a microSD card slot with support for up to 2TB of removable storage.
It has a 2,610 mAh battery, support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0, a 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera.
The BlackBerry Neon supports 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, FM radio, GPS, and 4G LTE.
The smartphone measures 5.8″ x 2.9″ x 0.3″ and weighs less than 5 ounces.
Like last year’s BlackBerry Priv, the new phone will run Google Android software along with a suite of BlackBerry apps including Hub, Password Keeper, BBM, and DTEK privacy and security software.
What the phone doesn’t have is a physical keyboard. But based on the spec sheet, it’ll probably be more affordable than the BlackBerry Priv, which was priced at $749 when it launched last year (although you can often find it for half that price these days).
