Hot off the arrival of that internal RIM video, giving us a look at some of its new hardware, we’ve got a fresh leak of BlackBerry 10 gear, this time giving us the run-down on a so-called “Laguna” model set to launch on Verizon.
We’ve been talking about BB10 L-series and N-series phones, and specifically the London and Nevada. From the looks of this, and the fact that RIM talks about these phone as belonging to a series, we could be getting some very similar hardware options. In fact, the Laguna, at least according to these specs, sounds an awful lot like the London, to the point we’re having trouble spotting the differences.
The details on the Laguna’s screen here, from size to resolution, match what we know of the London. That’s odd, because 1280 x 768 isn’t supposed to be a regular BB10 resolution; it’s a hold-over from the Dev Alpha, and while we thought the London would still have it, RIM was supposed to move to 1280 x 720 for subsequent models. The fact that the Laguna shows the old resolution has us wondering if it might just be the London itself – maybe Laguna is the codename for the CDMA version (though apparently with global roaming)? Then again, this could just be a fake; there are some small errors present, like writing “Snapdragon” in camel case.
Supposedly, the Laguna will run a Snapdragon S4, have a gig of RAM and 16GB of flash, and support microSD expansion. It should support NFC, LTE, and have an eight-megapixel main camera.
