High-powered BlackBerry 10 Aristo Specifications Leaked

By - Source: Rapid Berry | B 19 comments

Smartphone features 4.65-inch OLED display, 16GB internal storage and 2GB of RAM.

RIM is already preparing to release a few BlackBerry 10 phones such as "Liverpool" and "London". If a leaked internal slide is anything to go by, it seems the financially troubled firm may have another BlackBerry phone called "Aristo".

Aristo, which means "the best" in Greek, boasts a Qualcomm APQ8064 quad-core Krait processor clocked at 1.5GHz. In addition, the unannounced smartphone also features 2GB of RAM and a 4.65-inch OLED display that delivers HD resolution. OCTA Glass made by Samsung is also said to be included, which apparently excludes an extra touch screen layer (the device will be incorporating the touch sensor directly onto the AMOLED panel).

While it's not the thinnest smartphone due to launch on the market, the BlackBerry 10 Aristo is still an impressive 8.85mm thick. NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, microHDMI out, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA and microUSB are other notable features.

As for the device's camera, a 2MP front-facing camera capable of shooting 720p video is listed, with an 8MP 1080p-capable camera situated at the back. The leaked slide also suggests that the Aristo will come equipped with a 2,800mAh battery, as well as 16GB of internal storage.

The full list of specs can be seen below.

    If this is true, it would be the first High-end phone by BlackBerry in years that actually deserve the hefty price tag they all have

    Very nice specs, but do Blackberrys have any apps that could use such performance as that SoC provides?

    Although good for the business, Blackberrys tend to lack the "wow". Hopefully this and the other new phones will come with some "wow".

    If they can pull this off as RIM......what the hell have all of the android players been up to? I am still waiting for a knockout quad core krait phone in the US. And that battery size is going to be quite meaningful - shame android makers seem content with around 2000 mAh with the exception of the RAZR MAXX (which sucks in pretty much all other hardware categories)

    Impressive specs. That battery is 45% larger than my Sensation 4g and I'm starting to feel a little micro-Amp-Hour-envy. It better perform better than my old Storm 2 with its 10 minute reboot process, crummy app market, weird BES synchronicity issues and woefully inadequate lame-*** browser.

    I'm stuck with a BlackBerry until my company decides to change. Hopefully they'll make this the kind of phone that regular people want. Just not enough apps and fun stuff IMO. BBs are really good in corporate environments though. Easy to manage and fairly secure.

    That battery itself makes it a great choice.

    it's going to be a tough year ahead with the just launched iPhone5 and both Nokia and RIM trying their best to recoup market share. Of course the other players like HTC won't be sitting idly too.

    BlackBerry 10 is gonna kick some serious a** and with this kind of hardware, it should make for a very compelling phone.

    I think that it's a BIG mistake to count RIM out jut yet.

    i hope they can pull it through, price and OS stability, and no F-ups on delays. actually release a finished product would be a great way to start. Be awesome to have another contender in the phone sections. great for the consumer..

    TheBigTrollsealed battery..........
    I don't like it either but it is getting more common. Then again I don't usually keep a phone long enough to trash the battery, and the only time I've replaced a battery was because the factory battery had poor capacity from the start. This seems powerful enough that I wouldn't have to do that.

    At least there will be no more "replace the battery and reboot" fix. I am looking forward to this baby since I'm tired of iOS and Android. As a Playbook user, i really do like the UI, hopefully BB10 improves on that.

    what about the front camera? video calling is an option now!

    This is one great phone they are talking about. Let's hope it's true.
