The A-Series is kind of turning into a mythological smartphone for all of us that are fans of BlackBerry. No pictures of it have been leaked, and what we do know is super limited. Today, BlackBerry-bashing tech site, BGR, shared some details about the upcoming A-Series device (which by the way is not called the A10, but whatever, I digress), and we'll be adding a couple of things to that report, which for the most part, is accurate.
BlackBerry is currently still testing two separate A-Series prototypes with different screen sizes. It seems the guys in charge can't really decide between the two, and the difference in size is quite significant. One A-Series device sports a 4.65 inch screen, while the other one rocks a full 5 inch display.
As BGR's report stated, the A-Series will sport a SuperAMOLED screen. This will be true regardless of which size is ultimately chosen. Unfortunately, BlackBerry will be sticking with a screen resolution that's been made public since before BlackBerry 10 even launched, the 1280x720 one. We've all wished this would be upgraded to a 1080p screen, but it seems BlackBerry is putting more emphasis on the hardware parts that actually matter to the end user.
The internals are also pretty bad ass. While it won't have a quadcore processor, the GPU and RAM will be separate as reported, like on the iPhone. The GPU will be pretty powerful as it will have 4GB to work with, and even though the A-Series will have 2GB of RAM, it should still be ridiculously quick.
The look of the A-Series does resemble the Samsung Galaxy S4, stated BGR's report, and that goes hand in hand with what we've been hearing as well. Then again, how much can you really do with a piece of glass?
We're dying to see this phone up close and in pictures. This device could end up being a gamer's dream with the specs and OS it's suppose to be rocking. BlackBerry sure hopes this device will attract more than just gamers. They will put all their eggs on the A-Series basket.
