The BlackBerry Passport is rightfully getting all the attention and hype in the BlackBerry community as its release should be scheduled for next month. However, BlackBerry has another physical QWERTY-packing device in store for later this year, and some of its specs may have already been outed by its Geekbench score.
According to these results, the BlackBerry Classic will be rocking a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz. It will also pack 2GB of RAM. These internals are pretty much identical to what the Z10 (except STL100-1 model) had. The interesting thing to note here is that the Classic’s score (500) is higher than the Z10’s (453) even though their internal specs are pretty much the same. This result could be due to software improvements found in the Classic’s OS 10.3.1.317 which the Z10 obviously doesn’t have officially yet.
The BlackBerry Classic is slated for a November 2014 release.
