BlackBerry, the Canada-based smartphone maker may be preparing to release another new smartphone in the smartphone market soon and the phone is set to come with some very new surprises. After details about a new BlackBerry phone were leaked online, the smartphone maker may be enjoying even more success.

The leaked phone will have something that no other BlackBerry phone had before

According to reports from Indonesia, a mysterious device dubbed the “BBC100-1” is possibly being produced by the Waterloo-based smartphone making giant. Apparently, the reports from Indonesia reveal something similar to that news. As many would expect, this news raised hopes among BlackBerry lovers who are hoping to see a new smartphone soon. But the news did not reveal if the phone will be shipped outside Indonesia any time soon.

The very famous tipster Roland Quandt said in his post that the smartphone is worth noticing for two reasons: first, because it appears to be the first ever BlackBerry device equipped with Dual-SIM capability, and second, because the device is said to be made by an Indonesian firm called PT BB Merah Putih.

Dual-SIM capability is quite an interesting feature because until now, there was no news of a BlackBerry smartphone that had the ability to have two separate SIM cards on the handset. This means that the BBC100-1 would be perfect for flexible working as the users would be able to put both business use as well as personal use SIM cards in the same device. This smartphone also marks a notable departure for the Waterloo-based smartphone maker which has only been working with China-based firm TCL to release its most recent devices.

Specifications of the phone

The smartphone codenamed BBC100-1 will sport a 8MP ‘selfie’ lens and 13MP rear camera and will feature a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution.  In terms of storage, it will have a 32GB of built-in storage and 4GB of RAM. The smartphone will run a Snapdragon 425 quad-core SoC clocked at 1.4 GHz.

As for battery, the mysterious phone leaked recently will be powered by a 3000Ah battery, which will offer enough battery life that you can use the phone all-day. There is no news on exact release date or price about the smartphone yet but the fact that the smartphone was first manufactured by an Indonesian firm points out that the device will most likely go on sale in that country before others.

The smartphone maker is set to launch its new device, BlackBerry Mercury, at the Mobile World Congress next month. Mercury will feature a metallic body built around a 4.2inch touchscreen, which means it is smaller than most leading Android handsets and iPhones.
