You’re all familiar with BlackBerry 10’s all touch L-Series and the QWERTY-rockin’ N-Series, right? They’ve both been drilled into our skulls ahead of the 2013 BlackBerry 10 launch.
But now we gots word of a whole new BlackBerry 10 branch, namely the A-Series. What in the blue blazes?
The BlackBerry 10 A-Series leak is reported by Rapid Berry, who’ve stumbled across a purported confidential RIM document, intended for “Internal Use Only”. Oops.
It’s not entirely clear if the A-Series is a one-off or a fully-fledged series of phones. In any case, the ‘A’ here is said to stand for Aristo, which is Greek for “the best” (Toyota Aristo pictured, incidentally). Indeed, the accompanying spec sheet backs up that notion.
BlackBerry 10 Aristo specs include a 4.65in OCTA (on-cell touch active) 1280 x 720 display, 8MP rear camera with 1080p video recording, and a 2MP snapper on the front.
We’re also told to expect 2GB of RAM in the BlackBerry 10 Aristo, alongside 16GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), and NFC (Near Field Communication).
There’s also a meaty 2,800mAh battery, though the BlackBerry 10 Aristo battery compartment is said to be sealed.
And that’s the BlackBerry 10 Aristo. Sounds not bad, eh? There’s nothing on the document indicating a BlackBerry 10 Aristo release date, but hopefully we’ll hear more on this beast in the coming weeks.
