We recently heard that RIM has settled on the resolutions for its BlackBerry 10 devices, namely 1280 x 720 (16:9) for all touchscreen, and 720 x 720 (1:1) for QWERTY handsets. Oh, and 1280 x 768 for the very first device.
Not a great deal else is known when it comes to BlackBerry 10 specs, but now we’re hearing rumours of some sexy processor action.
The whispers come via BlackBerryOS, and an anonymous “reliant source” who reckons the first BlackBerry 10 handsets will rock Qualcomm's S4 Pro MSM8960T processor.
If true, that’s undoubtedly good news for BlackBerry 10. The presence of the Adreno 320 GPU makes the chip ideal for HD stuff, multitasking, and gaming – something not typically associated with BlackBerry phones.
Incidentally, the Snapdragon S4 Pro is set to debut in an as yet unnamed LG handset, scheduled to hit the market (well, Korea, anyway) next month. It’s said to be prettaaaaay nifty.
As for the first BlackBerry 10 handset, we’re told to expect an all touch device in January 2013, with a QWERTY offering following soon after. I’m actually really interested to see how these chaps turn out.
