BlackBerry Neon is official(-ish), full specs and images revealed

BlackBerry’s upcoming Android smartphone has been leaked by none other than BlackBerry itself.

The Canadian technology giant posted all of the details about the new BlackBerry Neon (codename: Hamburg) on its official website, before swiftly taking it down. Fortunately, the information was mirrored over on CrackBerry, and details are still available through a cached version of the BlackBerry website.

Here are some of the images from the site:

As is evident in the render, the phone is very similar to the Alcatel Idol 4. That means that like the Alcatel handset, the BlackBerry Neon is almost certainly built by TCL Corporation, a Chinese electronics giant that also manufactures handsets for Vodafone.

So what else do we know? Well, pretty much everything. Here’s the full list of specs, as detailed on BlackBerry’s website:

  • 5.2-inch display
  • 1,920 x 1,080 pixel resolution (424-pixels-per-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 CPU
  • Adreno 405 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB flash storage
  • Expandable memory (up to 2TB)
  • 13-megapixel autofocus camera (Dual-tone, Dual-LED flash)
  • 8-megapixel camera (selfie flash)
  • 2,610mAh Lithium-ion battery
  • Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 enabled (50% charge in 51 minutes)
  • Up to 17 hours mixed battery life
  • Dimensions: 147 x 72.5 x 7.4mm
  • Weight: 135 grams

Unfortunately, we still don’t know a couple of things, specifically pricing, availability, and the release date. Stay tuned.
