Thought Research In Motion was only going to focus on the L, N, and M series? Think again. Turns out they are also working on an A-Series, dubbed the ‘Aristo’ (Greek for “the best”).
While the L-Series will have some fairly good specs, the A-Series looks to topple them by adding in beastly components. Here’s what the A-Series specs are said to be:
- Qualcomm APQ8064 Krait Quad Core 1.5GHz
- 136 x 68 x 8.85mm
- GSM – Quad band (not specified) – WCDMA – 2100/1900/850-850MHz – LTE –
AWS/700/1900/850MHz – EU/APAC – GSM – Quad band (not specified) – WCDMA –
2100/1900/850-850/900MHz – LTE – 1800/2.6GHz/800/900MHz
- OCTA Glass OLED 4.65″ – 1280 x 720 – 24 bit Colour – 16:9
- Capacitive All Touch
- 2GB RAM + 16GB Flash – Hot Swappable MicroSD slot 16GB MicroSD card
- 802.11 a/b/g/n 2.4GHz/5GHz 4G Mobile Hotspot
- MicroUSB – MicroHDMI – Wifi Direct – NFC – DLNA – Bluetooth 4.0
- Stereo speakers – 4 Microphones – Noise Reduction – Wideband AMR
- 2800mAh sealed battery with non-removeable door
Footprint 104 x 57.1 x 3.4mm (20H use for Multimedia user)
The Aristo will be slightly bigger than the L-Series, but it might be worth it. Having a Quad-core BlackBerry with a beastly 2800mAh battery could really make users of other platforms want to take another look. Nevertheless, we’re extremely psyched for the future of BlackBerry 10. RIM is surely on the hunt to solidly place themselves.
