This mid-ranger without a physical keyboard is expected to launch loaded with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, featuring a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor and 3 GB RAM.

The BlackBerry handset known as "Hamburg" has been in the rumor mill for a while, but now it looks like its launch is closer than ever. This mid-ranger that is expected to launch without BB's iconic physical keyboard has recently been spotted at GFXBench and the FCC.

According to the GFXBench listing, these are the specs and features of the upcoming Android handset by BlackBerry:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 with Adreno 405 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Display: 5.2-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 12 MP back
  • Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

In addition to the above, the FCC database entry for this handset also revealed that it features a 2610 mAh battery and its manufacturer is TCL (the same company that is behind Alcatel smartphones).

This handset will probably hit the market under a different name, but that remains to be seen. Since it is expected to have a price tag below $400 USD, it might have a tough time competing with the BlackBerry Priv that now can be found for less than $400 USD as well, not that long after launching priced at $699 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
