So far, we’ve been looking forward to BlackBerry 10 hardware in two main families, the touchscreen-only L-series, and the hardware keyboard N-series. If you’ve been playing really close attention, you might have caught wind of an R-series, of which we currently know little, but today we’ve got a new one for you, upon a leak revealing some hardware specs for the A-series BlackBerry Aristo.
From the sound of things, the A-series could be more touchscreen-only models, but perhaps consist of higher-tier devices. That’s certainly how we’d characterize the phone described by these specs, at least.
The Aristo is supposed to be powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4, have a 4.65-inch 720p display, an eight-megapixel main camera, and two gigabytes of RAM. For storage, look for 16GB internal flash, with microSD for expansion. There will be NFC and HDMI out; the only real downer among the specs is the mention of a non-removable battery, but at least it will be a sizable 2800 mAh.
Even with the advancements coming to phones between now and 2013, when we’d presumably see the Aristo launch, this sounds like it has the specs to still be top-of-the-line hardware. Are you ready to start getting excited about BlackBerry 10 yet?
