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.

Now more details about the Hamburg are starting to emerge. The phone recently showed up at the FCC and GFXBench websites.

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.
