BlackBerry A10 specs leaked in confidential document

The BlackBerry A10 specs have been leaked in a screenshot from an official and top secret BlackBerry document.

Revealing the hardware for the next BB10 device, the leaked confidential document contains the full specs for the highly rumoured BlackBerry A10 ahead of any official unveiling.

Posted on the CrackBerry forum as a screen grab with the simple comment “I’ll just leave this here”, the specs are part of a confidential BlackBerry document which is only available to those who have signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

However, despite the NDA warning, the document dated May 23 2013 has still managed to emerge online, revealing the BlackBerry A10 spec sheet.

Previously tipped to be a ‘big’ full touch phone, the latest leak supports this theory, suggesting the A10 will have a 5-inch OLED Display with a 1280 x 720p HD resolution and 295ppi image density.

This means the screen will be of a lesser quality than the other BB10 devices, the BlackBerry Z10 and BlackBerry Q10.

It will supposedly pack a 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm processor with a quad-core GPU and 2GB of RAM.

An 8-megapixel camera in the rear will be paired with a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper. The BlackBerry A10 will also have 16GB of internal storage bolstered by a microSD slot for cards up to 64GB.

The next BB10 smartphone will also pack a pretty powerful 2800mAh if this document is correct, along with a micro USB and HDMI port, DLNA, Wi-Fi, NFC and 4G LTE connectivity to boot.

Many of these specs tally up nicely with the Z10 and Q10, but the A10 may well play host to the new BB10.2 version of the latest BlackBerry operating system.

Currently, all that is available is the BB10.1 version, so 10.2 may bring new features with it.
 
Apparently, the BlackBerry A10 is set for a November launch, but today’s leak may spur BlackBerry on to release it a little earlier.
